Looking for inspiration for a commercial interior?
Here is a rundown of our favorite installations that stand apart from the everyday. Showcasing displays from our best contemporary lighting designers, who says commercial lighting should be boring..?
All angles at Topaz, Turkey
The faceted sides of Asteroid Plastic work perfectly with the angled shelves and seating of the Topaz Restaurant. Named after minor planets from outer space, these pendants look strikingly modern and make a truly unique contemporary display.
Beads of glamour at Axcel E’Lever Hair Salon, Japan
When working with a hair salon, multiple reflective surfaces are mandatory, and the use of the highly polished Beads between each mirror just adds to the drama of this space. The Beads Octo has been used in Copper throughout, adding reflections, shadows and an extra touch of class
A mixed Circus at Mint Velvet, UK.
Why stick to just one modern lighting pendant? For a commercial space with high ceilings and mezzanine, it makes much more impact to hang multiple pendants at various heights. At this retail store in Kent, multiple colours and sizes have been used in a cluster to make an effective space filler.
Facets for Furla, UK
When choosing fixtures for the interior of a luxury accessories store, you need to choose something elegant and eye-catching. The reflections of the Facet Chandelier in this Regent Street Store, Furla, bounce around the polished metal shelving and coving highlights. The classic but modern chandelier compliments the design and product.
Statement spotlighting at Cau, UK
Sometimes a real lighting design statement comes from repetition of something simple. By keeping the design consistent, these evenly spaced Bubble spotlights highlight the seating areas and make a bold statement. The highly reflective surface of the chrome pendants contributes to the feeling of space and depth in the London restaurant, CAU at St Katherine Docks.
Decorating with light, Gaucho, Dubai
With its impressively high ceilings, but relatively sparse interior decor, the Gaucho restaurant is largely decorated by light and the shadows produced by the innermost lighting fixtures.
Installations of the Beads and Buckle pendants bring subtle reflections and wonderful highlights to this high end restaurant in Dubai. A great example of contemporary lighting design that transforms the entire interior.
Minimalist charm at Edelman, Hong Kong
For an open plan office that has a minimally designed interior, the Portland pendants make a cool, calm and detailed addition. The angular concrete form is used to spotlight various areas of the Edelman Hong Kong offices. Spaces like this with an industrial charm make an ideal backdrop to the minimal concrete lighting of Portland.
An exciting spotlight display at Morgan, UK
Who said spotlights had to look technical? Latitude is spotlighting with attitude and has been used to fantastic effect, hanging at various lengths in this lively furniture showroom in central London. Morgan, who manufacture ‘truly original, high-quality furniture’, have mixed the red, white and black pendant spotlights, all facing different directions, along two sets of tracking. The result is an exciting and playful display which serves to highlight and compliment Morgan’s assorted furniture collection.
Colour is key, Moscow
With a simple pop of colour, you can create a great modern interior statement. The curves of the small stupa work with the graphical wall patterns in this Russian Restaurant.
Don’t overlook the lampshades, Andorra
With such an incredible view, it is not necessary to use glitzy chandeliers to make a big statement. Instead, a mixture of subtly coloured RD2SQ lampshades suit the autumnal view from the Grandvalira Ski Station for Saetde, at the Coll Blanc Restaurant.
Layers of colour, Spain
Matrioshka brings a splash of colour to this reception area, where the warmth of the coloured glass brings personality. If the walls and floors are muted, it is a great idea to bring some colour in through the light fittings selected.
Hats off to Net-a-Porter, UK
While corporate offices can often lack personality, using a modern pendant lighting installation is the ideal way to move away from ‘traditional’ interior design. The strong contrast between the Black Felt outer and Silver Anodised reflector of the Wooster Pendant compliments the two-tone office interior at Net-a-Porter.
