Electrolux's Cube, the Carmen Sandiego-esque portable pop-up restaurant that perches itself on top of landmarks around the world, is currently stationed in London on top of the Royal Festival Hall. As diners walk up towards the restaurant, they're surrounded by a six speaker sound installation by sound design company Condiment Junkie that samples kitchen noises from the restaurants of the pop-up's visiting chefs, including Sat Bains, Claude Bosi and Tom Kitchin.

Below, a walk-through of the installation — you can hear knives on a cutting board, chefs calling to each other, and other noises from Claude Bosi's restaurant Hibiscus. Although you can't hear it in the video, apparently the installation makes diners feel as though they are inside bubbles that rise and pop around them like a simmering liquid. The walk-through starts about one minute in; the Cube is in London til September 30.
