Shoreditch is a well-known hub for trendsetting and excitement, renowned for its celebration of the unique and the bold. With our work for the Mondrian Shoreditch, we wanted to create something that playfully incorporated Shoreditch’s originality and spark whilst maintaining a timeless and high-end feel. Our use of bespoke, double-layered chandeliers creates a beautiful visual to welcome guests to the East London hotel, offering continuity as the lights continue through to guide visitors into the lobby and on to the rest of the hotel. Alongside our feature lighting, we provided further lighting in the public areas of the hotel, including floor and wall lamps, all completely bespoke and intended to accentuate the hotel’s beautiful interiors and offer eye-catching details. This piece is sure to make a lasting impression on visitors for years to come.
This bespoke installation was designed and manufactured to suit the space in the foyer of Dumont Tower apartments, situated by London’s Southbank. Hoad & More’s eye-catching creation consists of hanging geometric canopies, each section made from solid brass with widths of up to three metres across. Based on Art Deco motifs, the projected light within each shape is thrown onto the underside of the perforated upper pyramid, creating rich, golden light and casting decorative patterns onto the ceiling above.
The Waterman apartment building creates a striking silhouette where it sits along the Greenwich Peninsula riverside. Conran + Partners commissioned Hoad & More to make a light feature for the entrance lobby that reflected the modern and luxurious feel of the building as a whole. To achieve this, we used 40 illuminated, frosted acrylic rods and 21 polished gold rods of various lengths at perpendicular angles to create a delicate yet striking architectural light in the double-height space. The whole installation measures 6.5m wide by 3m deep and 2m high.
Inspired by the evening sunset, Hoad & More’s hanging sculpture in this private residential building is set in the double-height living space, and forms a beautiful transparent central feature. Made from crystal-clear acrylic and autumnal-coloured polished shards, it refracts and reflects the natural daylight streaming in from the full height windows that surround it to bring the beauty of the outdoors inside, a breath of fresh air in the busy heart of London for the building’s residents.
Created for the iconic building No.1 Blackfriars in London, this linear light feature uses overlapping petal shapes to form a floral design. With layers of edge-lit acrylic making up the crystal-like profile, the piece produces a soft illumination, providing an alternative to a more standard chandelier. Like the space it inhabits, Hoad & More’s creation is intended to be iconic and unique.
Custom made for Banana Republic’s flagship store in Regent Street, London, this installation was created by combining polished stainless steel and acrylic to create the suspended features pictured. The acrylic components are illuminated using LEDs to catch the eye of passing shoppers, with the piece as a whole spanning a show-stopping three floors.
