Marco Pierre White's 'Luciano' Restaurant

Photography/ John Ross

This striking image of Naomi Cambell is by the late Bob Carlos Clarke and part of a series of images presented in Luciano restaurant, the joint project between Sir Rocco Forte and Marco Pierre White. The interior of the restaurant is designed by David Collins, so our brief was to marry the artwork with the interior. Taking the retro brass accessories as an inspiration, we designed welded brass frames that were patinated by hand to create seductive finishes.

All images are glazed with Ultra Violet protective plexi. Not only is this a lightweight alternative to glass, its also safer for the image, as should the glazing be broken it won't shatter and damage the image.
