design et al are delighted to announce that Bert Frank have been shortlisted for Lighting Award within The International Design and Architecture Awards 2018.
Industrial design gets a sophisticated remix in Bert Frank’s new Colt lighting range. Juxtaposing supple curves with angular lines, a sleek laser-cut brass grill encases opal glass diffusers for a modern take on urban glamour. Light filters through both the top and underside of the machined brass oval case, casting a soft wash of light into a room. Comprising a table, pendant and two wall lights, the Colt collection is made from the finest materials and crafted exclusively in the UK. Each light is built to last and designed to age with you.
With its sophisticated play on gentle curves and linear forms, the Colt light is instantly eye-catching, yet the versatility of the design makes it truly unique. Taking an oval, machined-brass grill as the central element, the design transforms from a single statement style such as the striking, oversized pendant light to an elegant accent piece like the double wall light. Bert Frank’s signature attention to detail is evident in every design. From an inbuilt pen tray in the base of the table lamp to the opal glass diffusers that softly distil light, the Colt collection is as functional as it is alluring.
The sleek appearance of the Colt lighting range allows each design to seamlessly segue into any interior. The brushed brass lends an understated glamour, while the oval laser-cut grill has an industrial feel, making for a light that is both modern and timeless. This duality enables the designs to effortlessly mix with myriad decorating schemes, making the Colt collection equally as striking in a small living space, as it is in the interior of an illustrious restaurant or hotel. Bert Frank was founded by Robbie Llewellyn in 2013 and is now a well-recognised British luxury lighting brand.
