Cameron Design House was appointed by a Spanish homeowner to create a statement, bespoke, sculptural lighting piece to suit the interior of their elegant, newly renovated Finca property, designed by Kirsten Schwalgien Design.
The brief was to create an eye-catching, modern lighting installation that could be seen illuminating upon entry into the home.
“Lighting has one of the most important elements in a room as it has a profound effect on our emotional response to space; it sets the mood and the surrounding atmosphere,” says Ian Cameron, Creative Director of Cameron Design House. “Light naturally draws our eyes in, so what holds that light should be beautiful, interesting to look at and meticulously crafted.”
Working closing with the client, Cameron Design House decided that a simplistic, geometric pendant light suspended effortlessly from the ceiling would make a wonderful centrepiece. Featuring a polished brass finish to complement the design of the home and working in harmony with the shiny, smooth gold dining table, Cameron Design House suggested the iconic Lohja chandelier.
Just off-centre to the entrance door, yet visible through a stunning, vast Crittall interior window, the location for the dramatic focal point was established. Not only does the piece command attention from every position in the grand, open plan room, it also helps to establish specific zones, dividing up the living spaces and creating a dedicated area for entertaining.
Cameron continues: “We treat every project, no matter how large or small, from start to finish with a detailed approach. Each project is unique, we work closely with our clients to deliver a statement piece that they’re proud to have in their home.”
The bespoke piece was manufactured by hand in the Cameron Design House studio in St John’s Wood, London. Inspired by the tranquil, rippling lakes of Lohja in Finland, the distinct design explores space, tranquillity and equilibrium, combining simplicity with geometry, creating the perfect balanced structural form, which offers a different view from every angle. Suspended effortlessly from the ceiling, the hanging Lohja chandelier makes for an impressive sculptural profile, which carefully cascades to any desired length.
