Why go Bespoke?

Our top three requirements for bespoke lighting are as follows;

  1. To create light fittings that are completely unique.

  2. To create lighting and/or lighting effects for a very specific purpose.

  3. To match existing fixtures and finishes in the space.

Many of our clients engage with us to create lighting that is completely unique. Many Hotels will employ designers to create interiors that stand out and cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. Have a look at the large, 3 tier cylindrical lights that were designed by our interior design client and manufactured by us, for the Grand Central Hotel in the heart of Belfast.

Many of our bespoke design projects are the result of needing a very specific light for a specific place that you cannot buy 'off-the-shelf.' The Soak Restaurant in London is a perfect example of this. The client wished to have an overhead light for multiple tables, stemming from the same central point. This tree-like design creates a stunning visual effect, as well as serving the desired purpose. High quality metals and opaque white glass globes have been perfectly crafted to create these magnificent lights.

The designers employed to take on the impressive refurbishment of The Midland Hotel, Manchester, had a clear idea of the large, classical style chandeliers required to make a statement in the public areas of the building. Aged Brass metal work compliments the other metal finishes throughout the ground floor, while opaque white diffusers in a hexagonal shape were specified to eliminate any glare.
