When UFO was asked by Kate & Sam Lighting Designers to manufacture a series of bespoke chandeliers for the contemporary Hotel Bloom we jumped at the chance.
Based in Brussels, the trendy hotel combines plush hospitality with art and creativity at every turn. Unique freesia's which have been hand painted by young and emerging European art students adorn the walls in the hotel's 305 bedrooms, whilst the informal and colourful meeting areas provide relaxed environments where companies can brainstorm and let their creativity flow.
It is here in one of the 12 meeting rooms that all 25 of our custom chandeliers can be found creating a grid-like formation in the room's vast ceiling. Spanning more than 2000mm in width, the identical chandeliers have been fabricated from copper pipe and hand polished in-house by us.
We installed a steel wire assembly in to each of the chandeliers' copper elbows allowing the large copper units to be securely suspended from eyebolts in the ceiling, and also fitted 4000K linear LED lights and diffusers in to the top of the pipes providing warm ambient lighting onto the recessed ceiling cavities above.
