Sleep, one of Europe’s most renowned hotel design events, returned to London’s Business Design Centre from 21st – 22nd November. We were delighted to return this year to stand M9B where we featured a selection of striking pieces from our recently launched Pearl Collection.
Launched earlier this year at Decorex International, the Pearl Collection draws strong influence from the radiance and timeless allure of pearl alongside key fashion icons of the past. The collection’s contemporary aesthetic is underpinned by spherical opal glass forms and polished brass metalwork, while each piece retains its own distinctive identity.
Taking centre stage at this year’s stand was our showpiece Ballerina pendant. The design features delicately illuminated opal glass and brass spheres which sit on elegantly arching satin brass stems, intersecting a central suspended brass column. The Ballerina pendant offers complete versatility and flexibility, with each brass stem able to be uniquely positioned to ensure complete harmony with its surroundings.
Also featured prominently at this year’s years stand, the Audrey ceiling pendant takes inspiration from the enduring elegance of pearls featured throughout iconic fashion, beauty and cinematography. This timeless and universal sense of charm is re-interpreted into a striking, contemporary form.
The Gabriella and Vermeer ceiling pedants also continued the bold, contemporary aesthetic of the Pearl collection. The Vermeer pendant takes inspiration from celebrated classic artworks and jewellery design. The contemporary piece features four opal glass spheres, asymmetrically positioned around the brass form. The Gabriella pendant provides a striking alternative to the Vermeer. The elegant, horizontally suspended polished brass form also features four opal glass spheres.
Veletto table lamps showed the harmony and cohesion between the Pearl and wider Signature collection. The Veletto range provides a simple, visually striking elegance, enhanced by the contrasting satin black and brushed antique brass detailing.
In addition to the exhibition itself, which attracted thousands from the global hotel design community, the Sleep event also boasted a comprehensive Conference line-up from major keynote speakers and panellists. Themes explored this year included bringing iconic properties back to life and ‘Emotional Modernism’, amongst others. Next year’s event will take place from 21st – 22nd November.
