    Case study: making style a priority in Hilton at Gatwick

    Putting the spotlight for a moment on style, lighting brand Franklite reveals how its products were used to created timeless design inside Hilton London Gatwick Airport…

    What factors do you consider when making a hotel reservation? Location? Route accessibility? Price? Whilst these are all important factors, equally important ones to consider are comfort, style and luxury. There is nothing more satisfying for a lighting brand to see their products being used in a creative way especially when it adds luxury and style to a space, such as this project from the Hilton London Gatwick Airport.

    A subtle yet impactful light is the Aura wall light range. Designed to be inconspicuous until lit, this modern matt black cast aluminium LED fitting lines the hotel’s corridors. The foyer showcases multiple versions of this range as well each reflecting different light patterns onto the walls. When these beautiful patterns are cast it creates a piece of art.

    The single-drop Cordelia is ideal for above a bar area within a restaurant. These beautiful satin brushed pendants with textured glass bases are available in gold and silver with some accents of chrome and matt black. The multi-drop versions will make a statement in a larger space such as a reception area or staircase.

    The dining area has been divided into two distinct spaces by using different lighting families, the Eros and Spirit ranges. An additional feature of the Eros ceiling lights is the emergency reserve battery hidden within the fitting, combining style and functionality.

    Another exquisite feature in this area is the Eros wall light which has been installed within a frame-like moulding with decorative wall paper which accentuates the architecture of the space.

    Franklite has been manufacturing and distributing lighting products for more than 45 years. The experts in its customer service and projects teams understand the importance of keeping up to date with changes in regulation, the development of efficient light sources, and changing interior design trends.
