    2014 turned out to be an extremely busy one for Dernier & Hamlyn. It saw the London based bespoke lighting designer and manufacturer produce probably the most varied types of light fittings for the widest range of sites in its 126 year history.From beautiful chandeliers for Corbin & King’s first hotel The Beaumont and their fantastic 1920s styled Austrian café Fischer’s in Marylebone to the very atmospheric Anglo Russian restaurant Bob Bob Ricard they have worked on some really challenging projects that utilised virtually the whole gamut of its highly experienced technical, engineering and manufacturing teams’ skills.

    Its royal connections were further strengthened with a recently completed programme for the Tudor chapel at The Tower of London while in complete contrast they produced ultra modern lighting for the Thames side residential development Cheval Three Quays as well as fantastic refurbished offices in the City of London.

    And, continuing a long tradition, of inspired art deco influenced lighting at Claridge’s they manufactured chandeliers and table lamps for the Michelin starred Fera as well as an amazing chandelier for the hotel’s private dining room that was inspired by a fitting they originally produced back in the 1930s and painstakingly recorded in their extensive archive.

    This year also marked a first in their production of a beautiful book A Source of Inspiration – highlighting some of their most inspiring fittings and photographs taken over their many years in business. It is available free of charge to interior designers. To order a copy simply email your details to info@dernier-hamlyn.com.
