When London’s Connaught Hotel opened the doors to its new Patisserie, designed by Ab Rogers, in October 2020, we were first in the queue to sample executive pastry chef Nicolas Rouzaud’s classic treats, including St Honoré cake, and contemporary delicacies, such as yuzu and honeycomb éclairs and chocolate tonka tarts.

You can eat in when lockdowns allow, amid its elegant, rose-tinted surrounds, but if you decide to take out, The Connaught’s treasure trove of treats can be displayed to stunning effect on Artemide’s ‘Bontà’ collection, designed by Davide Oldani and Attila Veress. The portable lamp, which gives a soft light diffused by white milk glass, and the jewel-hued dishes are designed to explore the connection between light, food and conviviality, adding delightful new dimensions to the entertaining experience. §
