In a Flash

It seems their last pop-up restaurant, The Reindeer (read our review of the launch party), and their lasting claim to fame, Bistrotheque, aren't enough for Pablo Flack and David Waddington. The haute-restaurateurs are set to open their latest gallery-like eatery, Flash, located within GSK Contemporary, a large-scale, cutting-edge exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in the heart of London.

Open for only 80 days beginning November 1, Flash is described, rather cryptically, as a room-within-a-room. Meaning—unlike the flashy decor of The Reindeer, with its forty snow-covered fir trees—the interior design will consist of crates used to ship works of art. On display will be specially commissioned pieces by artists Alexis Teplin and Simon Popper, a coat of armor by Gareth Pugh, a Swarovski chandelier by Giles Deacon and porcelain dishes made in collaboration between artist Will Broome and Wedgwood.
