Business Design Centre, London
London’s Business Design Centre was once again the host for this year’s ‘Sleep’, the renowned hotel design event. The exhibition ran from 24th – 25th November featuring an array of exhibitors, panel discussions and an incredible number of visitors. Heathfield & Co were delighted to exhibit at this year’s show alongside ‘Luum’, their partnering lighting installation design studio. Heathfield & Co and Luum’s stand featured a minimalistic yet beautiful display that included a stunning duo of Luum’s most popular installation designs accompanied by a selection of Heathfield & Co’s latest designs from their Signature collection.
One of the highlights of the event was Luum’s prominently featured ‘Raindrop’ installation. This design featured hand blown silvered glass rain droplets of varying sizes, finished in a smoked tint. Raindrop was illuminated from above creating a beautifully complex series of reflections, emphasised by the large mirrored table underneath. Also featured at the event, ‘Flame’ is one of Luum’s best-known designs. Also utilising hand blown glass, the design portrays glowing ‘flames’ captured within delicate glass bubbles that appear to mysteriously float. The design was recently featured in an inspiring twenty metre tall installation at this year’s Design Junction. The installation proved its versatility by fully adapting to the more intimate setting at Sleep.
Heathfield & Co’s featured lighting designs were carefully selected to provide the perfect accompaniments to Luum’s contemporary aesthetic. The featured Hera wall lights echo their inspiration from geometric Mid Century sculptures whilst authentically providing a contemporary form. The wall lights are made from laser-cut brass sheet and create beautiful, angular light spills. Also featured, the Antero Antique table lamp showcases Heathfield & Co’s glasswork expertise with beautiful bubble and frit detailing.
The convergence of Heathfield & Co and Luum at this year’s event continued from the success of both brands’ presence at the recent Decorex International exhibition, one of the flagship event’s of this year’s London Design Festival.
Donna Gridley, Design Director at Heathfield & Co commented on the success of this year’s Sleep event “We have exhibited alongside Luum before, with the most notable example being at Decorex earlier this year. However, at this year’s Sleep we really wanted to put Luum into the forefront and present their amazing designs to the designers and hoteliers in attendance. Luum is of course our partnering installation studio and we wanted to present Heathfield designs that bridged the gap between the aesthetics of our Signature lighting collection and the highly contemporary forms of Luum’s installation range. I think we achieved that through the Hera wall lights and Antero table lamp. The stand as a whole had a cohesive feel and the response from the visitors to the show was fantastic.”
