Tapered perforated metal shades, brushed brass rings and even glass icicles were some of the focal trends that were unveiled at Chelsom Lighting’s launch of Edition 26.
Two years since the launch of Edition 25, leading designers, procurement experts and friends of the firm gathered at One Marylebone last night in central London to celebrate the awaited unveiling of the collection.
With more than 70 years experience in hospitality design, Chelsom’s father and son duo Robert and William Chelsom’s creative stamp is imprinted throughout the entire range. Speaking at the event, William said: “This collection is the product of 18 months of hard work from everyone at Chelsom. I am delighted to be able to showcase Edition 26 in such a spectacular way with such a fitting venue as a backdrop.”
One of the many statement pieces in the newly launched collection is the striking Icicle, which features dimmable integral LED light sources in the bad of the glass icicles that throw light upwards giving a warm ambient glow whilst reflecting off the tiny silver leaf flecks within the handmade glass.
Elsewhere in the collection, the Halo features decorative LED filament lamps that reflect a warm glow off the interior of brushed brass rings. The rings on both the four and eight light chandeliers can rotate at the end of the arms to give an asymmetrical appearance.
The Radar features shallow perforated metal collie shades that are supported by detailed knurled lamp holder.
The Pear, which was displayed in a large installation in the main hall, features tiny points of LED lights that project a sparkling glow into unusually sculptured crackle glass pears.
Other products that were displayed around the venue included the Criterion, the Oxford and the Chelsea.
