    Feature: How lighting has changed

    To mark Lighting being put under the editorial spotlight for the second time this year, Hotel Designs asked Franklite how lighting’s role in hotel design is changing…

    Lighting is one of those extraordinary elements that gives hotels the comforts of home all while still experiencing the luxuries of what they have to offer. Certain spaces within hotels will require specific lighting and that’s where we come in.

    Franklite provides innovative lighting solutions for any space, ensuring your design exceeds expectation. With a reputation built on using only the finest components in the manufacturing process and a laboratory which has one of the first near and far field goniophotometers – a development that measures light levels extremely accurately ensures that the lighting will be exactly as required.

    Highlighting recent projects Franklite have had the pleasure of being involved with this year are the Palace Hotel Inverness and Gleddoch Hotel and Spa in Glasgow. The Vista Restaurant in the Gleddoch receives a lot of natural light due to the panoramic views of their 18-hole golf course. Changes in natural light are more noticeable during the day and as a result will require different lighting at different times. Understanding these distinctions has been the key to our success at Franklite.

    A project currently underway at the Hilton Gatwick Hotel showcases the Aura wall light. The modern matt black cast aluminium LED fitting lines the hotel’s corridors. Designed to be inconspicuous until lit, these fixtures cast beautiful flower patterns on the walls mimicking a piece of art.
