ECC worked in collaboration with interior designers from Jasmax to deliver on the 1930s Italian Art Deco brief inspired by the film 'I am Love'. This era of timeless sophistication, luscious comfort and glamour guided the choice of light fittings.
The decorative lighting design was greatly influenced by the amount of existing natural light. Reflection and glare from the floor to ceiling glass windows made it impossible to use glass pendants. Therefore wall and ceiling lights in metal were selected that cast the light downwards. Void by Tom Dixon pendants in a brass finish and Zanadoo by Arteriors were chosen to compliment the interior scheme.
The floor plan was broken up into several spaces - cocktail/bar, reception, private dining and restrooms, requiring bespoke custom pendants for each individual space. For instance Tom Dixon's Void pendants were adapted to a rise and fall pulley system to allow flexibility in the main dining space, allowing regrouping of furniture when necessary.
