    Lighting case study: Gazprom’s new HQ in St Petersburg

    Following the brand participating as a Product Watch Pitch Partner at Hotel Designs LIVE in February – and while we are gearing up for the next virtual event – Inspired By Design shares how it put forward lighting solutions for a challenging brief in St Petersburg…

    Lighting design studio Inspired By Design “jumped at the opportunity” to work on this project for one of Russia’s prestigious largest companies known throughout the world.

    Working with the UK architectural team to a very specific design brief, the client wanted to create a ‘rainfall’ style chandelier in their VIP reception area and a further chandelier in the private dining room also for VIPs. In order for the client to get a ‘feel’ of what the chandelier would like, the bespoke lighting company created a mini sample piece. The arms were to be gold-plated and the Swarovski crystals needed to be a very specific colour. After the drawings were finalised, the sample was created for approval and it was tested in their offices. “We were delighted to receive approval and then started work in producing the chandelier,” explains Inspired By Design’s Simon Shuck. “As part of our quality checks we undertook a factory visit to see the chandelier in its glory before the packing was one.

    “Everyone’s breath was taken away when we saw the stunning crystal glowing from the special LED that had been used especially with all the factory lights having been switched off. It certainly looked like a rainfall chandelier which the client would be proud of.”

    Following this, the team at the lighting studio viewed the private dining chandelier, which was large circular fitting filled with short strands of Swarovski crystal in matching colours. The client, meanwhile, had just moved into their new HQ premises in St Petersburg which is a very impressive building.

    “As you can see by the image, a stunning chandelier was produced for this VIP reception area,” adds Shuck. “We were delighted to be asked to install the two chandeliers which enabled the team to explore this magnificent historic Russian city  during which the sun shone and was pleasantly warm and spend  many hours in The Hermitage soaking up all the fantastic artwork and other displays together with visiting Faberge and even taking a river cruise around the city.”

    If you have a bespoke lighting project, whatever the size, Inspired By Design believes it can bring its global expertise to assist. The lighting studio can even offer full FF+E lighting packages to suit your budget and for projects in USA the UL certification can be offered.

    Inspired By Design was a Product Watch Pitch partner at Hotel Designs LIVE, which took place in February. The next Hotel Designs LIVE will take place on August 10, 2021.
