This upscale office property houses the offices of Ivanhoé Cambridge, a global real estate industry leader. Hoad & More were approached by lighting contractors Pritchard Themis and architects Buckley Gray Yeoman to produce lighting elements to elevate and enhance this space for the company’s employees and visitors. Working collaboratively with architects and interior designers, we produced a design that reflects the ribbed finish of the surrounding walls by using reeded glass in the pendants, which in turn creates a subtle ribbed lighting effect. This piece is composed of 57 bronze tinted pendants ranging from 300mm to 1,200mm in length, each with reeded glass and Occhio LED lamps, combined to create a bold, geometric feature.
The reception feature of this popular office and retail building in the busy heart of Holborn was created from 80 frosted acrylic rods of up to 2.5m long. Assembled in rectangle formation, suspended, and illuminated to highlight the pieces striking components, Hoad & More’s design draws the eye and intrigues the onlooker. Central London is ever-changing, but this piece is intended to be a timeless addition to the space, providing beauty and new perspectives for years to come.
