Classic smash burgers served in an eccentric art-deco inspired diner.

Manna has raised the bar with its Battersea Power Station restaurant, serving smash burgers and fried chicken inspired by diner culture and regional fast-food joints in the States. Opening as part of the Arcade food hall, hungry shoppers can delight in these burgers all day long.

Manna’s interior features many nods to Battersea Power Stations art deco and cathedral like exterior. The Empire Table Bases stacked column design is reminiscent of the power station’s chimney stacks but the polished stainless steel finish gives the pieces a more contemporary feel. These table bases support the stunning square and rectangular white laminate tops lined with an ash hardwood edge, which are designed to withstand the constant use and allow for easy cleaning.

 The cold grey concrete of the power station walls is juxtaposed by Manna’s elegant, warm and cozy interior inviting passing shoppers in; The rich and vibrant teal and blue leather of the upholstered Hana Side Chairs add a nice dash of colour to the interior and gives Manna a stylish and comfortable feel. The Hana Side chairs were specifically chosen to meet the rigorous demands of the restaurant, durability and ease of cleaning while featuring the 19th century style found throughout Arcade. The retro diner look mixes with the grandiose eccentricities of the historic power station to create a unique hospitality venue.

Manna’s interior also features a bespoke version of the Macris Chair designed with the needs of a bustling and alive restaurant atmosphere and its all metal construction ensures durability and longevity as well as minimizing upkeep and signs of wear.

A set of bespoke Horizontal Panel Backed Fixed Seating Booths upholstered in a stunning blue with a yellow piping detail, a homage to Manna’s branding, help elevate the interior and provide seating for larger groups of guests. Throughout the project, the fabrics were meticulously selected to be simple to clean and durable enough to withstand the demands of restaurant guests while complying with Crib 5 regulations. The booths also help create a more intimate and secluded atmosphere by enclosing the space from the rest of the power station.

For additional seating the Toby Barstool has been utilized, upholstered in a deep anthracite faux leather that provides a durable, hard wearing surface and a walnut stained beech frame. The Toby Barstool effortless marries comfort and unparalleled style in such a unique interior.
