design et al are delighted to announce that Design plus Light have been shortlisted for a Lighting Scheme Award in The International Product Design Awards 2016
Design Plus Light were involved in one of the latest residential developments in the heart of Soho. Built in 1939, the building once housed London’s premier school of art and design.
Pitched ceilings are emphasised with concealed cove lighting. This provides a soft reflected light and lifts the impression of the space. Harsh glare is cleverly avoided by concealing the light fittings within the architectural detail.
The linear lighting effect is continued into the open plan kitchen space with linear washes of light onto the cabinets. Lines of light are detailed seamlessly into the wall and across the ceiling. This enhances the architectural structure and defines the space. A careful mix of contemporary and traditional lighting solutions makes for a unique domestic interior. Architectural lines of light link the open plan areas and create a sleek, contemporary look. Bespoke decorative chandeliers and ceiling lights prove a visual focus and help to define each individual space.
Lacquered walls glisten and shimmer when illuminated with ceiling recessed wall washers. An intimate bedroom setting is created with carefully balancing decorative lamp light with architectural ceiling slots. These provide diffuse indirect light to the space. Concealed strip lighting under the bathroom cabinets compliments the ceiling cove lighting. This is programmed to provide a glowing “night light” to the bathroom.
