The story of the silver animals

It is impossible to miss the silver animals that dot the tables of Mosimann’s. There’s a hippo, dog, pig, snail, rabbit, lobster and a range of frogs, fishes and turtles in different poses, plus the figure of a woman in the Lalique Room.

They’re incredibly popular with members with many requesting specific ones for their tables – something we make a note of along with other culinary preferences, so our guests receive a truly personalised experience that gives the home-away-from-home feel they expect from Mosimann’s.

The story of the animals goes back to the late 1980s, just before Mosimann’s opened in West Halkin Street, when Anton Mosimann was travelling the world. He loved to get his inspiration for dishes and experiences from around the globe, which he would then bring back for his clients but with a twist that was uniquely his.

At the time venues were all about flowers, but they can distract from the gastronomic experience if they’re scented. And Mr Mosimann was looking to create something different when he set up the club, from the dishes themselves and the concept of ‘cuisine naturelle’ to the artwork and the exclusive brand-hosted private dining rooms. He wanted to encourage guests to open their minds, to try new experiences, to be inspired and to welcome new ideas.

So, when in Italy in 1988 he spied a selection of these beautifully crafted silver animals in a shop he decided to import 25 designs for the opening – one for each table - and they’ve been a part of the Mosimann’s family ever since.

Over the years, more have been added to the collection and favourites remain a hotly contested debate among members. In fact, they are so popular, we even had to take up sourcing and selling them to guests for their own homes!

Country & Town Interiors – Casa Luiza at Mosimann's

As a busy working mother, Luiza’s biggest hurdle has always been a lack of time, so during the pandemic she dedicated her new found spare time to further developing designs for Casa Luiza. In addition, she has embarked on several interesting projects. These include the self-sponsored Casa Luiza room at Mosimann’s, the private club in Belgravia. There, each of the plush private dining rooms has its own unique character. To create her opulent, jewel-box space, she teamed up with world-renowned interior design firm Lambart & Browne (well known for being behind Loulou’s, the members-only nightclub at 5 Hertford Street) to curate a grand room furnished with luxurious fabrics and wallcoverings from Colony and Ardmore.

One of the stand-out features in the room at Mosimann’s is the floor, a specially commissioned interpretation of an original oil painting by artist Lauren Mele. Luiza also worked with sixthgeneration, family-owned luxury paint company Mylands, who she represents at her showroom in Chelsea Harbour. Contemporary art is another of her great loves and she has been advising clients for several years in a bid to make collecting more accessible. Her ideas for the field of interior design are limitless and include exclusive workshops and some exciting collaborations (recently she teamed up with Objekti on a series of decorative objects and art created by Mexican artists).
