    Hamilton Litestat’s ‘satin’ metallic accessories bring PANTONE’s Colour Of The Year to life

    800 658 Hamish Kilburn

    Satin Chrome and Satin Stainless-Steel accessories from Hamilton Litestat bring added energy to Pantone’s vibrant Colour of the Year 2019…

    The 2019 must-have palette for interior design, fashion and furnishings is set to include PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral, which has been named Pantone Colour of the Year.

    Selected by colour trend experts at the Pantone Color Institute, Living Coral is described as an ‘animating and life-affirming coral hue’. As with such announcements and the subjective nature of colour choice, it has received mixed reviews. Amongst the debate and deliberation, the name ‘living coral’ and its wider social commentary on global warming and the state of our diminishing coral reefs has divided opinion. It’s certainly struck a nerve, with some in full support and others slating it as ‘another marketing ploy’.

    Whatever your thoughts on the new Pantone Colour of the Year, there’s no getting away from its warm tones bringing energy yet calmness to a space. It’s buoyant, positive and light-hearted. When used in interior design, PANTONE Living Coral rugs, blankets and upholsteries can create a warm and nurturing feeling, while wall colourings and decorative accessories add a dramatic pop of colour.

    The vivid sunset hue works well in monochrome schemes and finds a dynamic partnership with blue, reflecting coral’s harmonious relationship with the sea. In the home, it is complemented by Hamilton’s decorative wiring accessories in Satin Chrome and Satin Stainless finishes, whose metallic and reflective tones link to water and bring extra life and sparkle to the on-trend colour.

    In addition to the satin chrome and stainless-steel finishes, Satin Brass and Hamilton’s cost-effective white plastic finish in the Hartland CFX design, create crisp, contemporary interiors. For a more coordinated alternative, Hamilton’s Paintables range allows you to exactly match the Pantone as a plate finish, with this option available in Hartland CFX or Sheer CFX.

    With a wide range of designs and finishes, along with functionality to suit the modern, connected household or high-end hotel – including dual 2.4A USB double switched socket plates – Hamilton’s electrical wiring accessories provide the perfect finishing touch for any interior scheme, whatever the shade or design.

    Understanding lighting technology with Hamilton Litestat

    800 349 Hamish Kilburn

    Following on from Hotel Designs’ Spotlight On’ feature of Technology last month, editor Hamish Kilburn sat down with the marketing manager of Hamilton Litestat to explore lighting trends, clever ways to illuminate the guestroom and how products are changing…

    Last month, Hotel Designs lit up the conversation around in-hotel technology and where trends are heading in the near future of hotel design. One conversation that came up time and time again was the idea of designers using lighting in more savvy ways to create a certain ambiance. With this in mind, I decided to ask the experts at Hamilton Litestat who are ahead of the curve and in-the-know when it comes to the future of lighting technology in the guestroom and beyond.

    Hamish Kilburn: How has lighting recently become more of a focus in guestroom design?

    Gavin Williams: Lighting has always played a significant role in the guest experience of a hotel. First impressions count and from the moment a guest sees the hotel building and walks into reception, lighting is being used to create a statement about the hotel.

    Lighting control certainly doesn’t need to be complicated

    Within a hotel’s guestrooms, lighting control provides important functionality. In the week, many guests are business people who need to use their rooms as a place of work during the day. Then, in the evenings – as well as weekend guests – they want to use the space to relax. Lighting control transforms these spaces between the different functional requirements, easing from bright work-appropriate lighting into softer mood lighting at the touch of a button or swipe of a finger.

    This also applies to the function rooms, restaurants and bars within a hotel. The atmosphere – and therefore the lighting requirements – for breakfast is very different to an evening meal setting, so lighting control can support this space transformation too.

    We take the brief and turn it into the desired solution with no headaches

    HK: I think a lot of designers shudder at the thought of lighting control in the guestroom. Can you put their minds at ease by telling us what makes Hamilton’s products user friendly?

    GW: Lighting control certainly doesn’t need to be complicated. From a designer’s perspective, all they need to do is tell Hamilton what effects they want to achieve, and our team will deliver a pre-programmed system to suit. Designers don’t need to know the ins and outs of how the system works, that’s Hamilton’s job! We take the brief and turn it into the desired solution with no headaches.

    Our solutions offer a range of effects, so designers should consider the result they’re after and whether they’d like dimming control, the ability to mix light and colour with DMX options, or the ability to set scenes. If they’re unsure, they can visit Hamilton’s showrooms in Bristol or at the Mere facilities to talk through the options and see demonstrations so they have the confidence that the system will deliver their lighting ideas.

    And, even more importantly, our smart lighting control solutions make things simple for guests too. They can be controlled by simple yet elegant button switches that are available in a range of designs, easy-to-use glass control panels or via an accessible app on a smart device.

    We’ve found exhibitions such as Decorex, The Independent Hotel Show and the recently rebranded SLEEP+EAT particularly helpful for keeping abreast of the latest trends

    HK: Do you keep track of trends, and what lighting products are most popular for hotels?

    GW: Yes, we make sure we take notice of the lighting trends within the hotel sector, and the general design trends. Both are very important to our business. Our smart lighting control solutions can help achieve these looks, but as we also design and manufacture decorative wiring accessories, we offer switched plates and sockets with the latest on-trend finishes.

    We’ve found exhibitions such as Decorex, The Independent Hotel Show and the recently rebranded SLEEP+EAT particularly helpful for keeping abreast of the latest trends. We exhibit at these shows and have both hoteliers and designers visit our stand, so we often find ourselves discussing current trends and themes that require lighting control. We also participate in the Hotel Designs networking events, which we find very useful. Hamilton’s solution is very flexible and can be programmed to deliver more complex solutions as and when new trends and requirements come in, but we’re also always happy to build a bespoke system to meet a specific design brief.

    HK: Can you explain the creative elements with regards to what goes into designing a new product?

    GW: Products are bought, not sold, so new product development must be driven by talking to customers and uncovering what is missing from the current market offering, or what is not working with existing products on the shelves. In terms of the crucial elements when designing a new product, function and form has always been important to Hamilton and balancing these two elements is something we pride ourselves on. We ensure our products deliver smooth, seamless and effective functionality in a product that’s attractive and well-designed.

    In a hotel, the bulk of any lighting control system will be installed out of view in the hotel’s hub room. It’s only the control plates that are visible in guestrooms so, typically, a designer wants to create a special control plate, one that has a unique shape or finish to coordinate with other wiring accessories in the design scheme.

    The majority of Hamilton’s products are manufactured in our factory in Bristol

    As pioneers in the manufacture of decorative plates for switches, sockets and lighting controls, Hamilton has accrued 50 years’ experience in meeting the specifications of designers and hoteliers. We simply need some guidance on the function, style and finish that’s being sought, and we will interpret these wishes to provide a suitable solution. The Hamilton design team can offer 3D CAD drawings so that customers can view product designs from different angles and perspectives to ensure it meets the most exacting requirements. This also shortens the lead time from design to product sampling. We’re also happy to create highly finished sample prototypes for a designer to present to their client to help them buy into their design ideas.

    HK: How are Hamilton Litestat products made?

    Image caption: Gavin Williams

    GW: The majority of Hamilton’s products are manufactured in our factory in Bristol: we’re a family-run business producing British-quality solutions. Our production facility includes complete CNC, Laser and Water Jet Cutting capability. In addition to our standard selection of finishes, we can provide bespoke premium finishes, including PVD, in a choice of finishes such as Nickel or Antique Gold. If required, we can print text or graphics on plates by Laser Etch, Pad Printing or Engraving. In short, it’s a mixture and both machine and hand finishing to ensure our customers get a quality product both in terms of design and manufacture.

    Hamilton mourns the passing of founder, Rod Hamilton

    1024 225 Hamish Kilburn

    Hamilton Litestat, which this year is celebrating 50 years since the company’s incorporation, sadly announces the death of its founder, Rod Hamilton at the age of 90, following a stroke.

    Rod started as a commission agent selling electric shavers, smoothing irons and electric fires. A request to try selling a new piece of technology called a dimmer, when the first question was “what’s a dimmer”, led him into the field of switches, sockets and lighting controls with an ever-expanding choice of plate designs and finishes. For many years these came from the Italian firm, Frascio; a close relationship that built the fortunes of both companies.

    From an initial base in the west of London he took the big step of moving the company to Mere in Wiltshire in 1984. This allowed expansion to serve not only the national market but also international demand and to build a brand known and respected for quality and choice. Gradually the need for a wider skill base led to a factory being established in Bristol where the bulk of the operation is now based.

    Rod was still going into the firm at the age of 86, although much of the day to day running had moved into the hands of his son, Ian. Right to the end he would ask Ian, how’s business going?

    Known as a tough businessman with native acumen, he, nevertheless, was also gregarious and generous, hospitable and humorous. One hell of a character, whose passing leaves a big gap in hotel design.

    Hamilton Litestat at Hotel Indigo Cardiff

    Product Spotlight: Hamilton at Hotel Indigo Cardiff

    798 492 Daniel Fountain

    Hotel Indigo Cardiff is a boutique hotel that has been designed by Matthews Mee Interior Design to evoke classic Welsh heritage.

    As with all Hotel Indigo establishments, the surrounding area was carefully researched to discover the location’s intricacies, its history, special events, industry and people. The hotel is then designed around this to provide a unique and more meaningful experience that reflects the hotel’s location.

    The Cardiff hotel, which will be managed by Redefine|BDL Hotels, features 122 guest bedrooms and 122 bathrooms, with a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill restaurant located on the roof of the building. The greatest attention has been paid to crafting unique spaces throughout the hotel that reflect the history and vibrancy of the Welsh capital. The guest rooms are themed ‘Made in Wales’, ‘Welsh Industry’ and ‘Music’, with each featuring local art and regionally-sourced natural materials to reflect the city’s strong legacy.

    Hamilton Litestat at Hotel Indigo CardiffMatthews Mee wanted to mix contemporary style and modern functionality with its heritage-rich designs. It sought an electrical accessories supplier that could support with modern solutions that would complement the design themes while delivering a classy, high-quality look and adhering to the latest guest demands.

    Working with contractor Kier and local wholesaler Evans Electrical, Hamilton Litestat was chosen as a solutions provider. Hamilton’s sleek and stylish Hartland collection of box-fix decorative wiring accessories was nominated as the perfect match for the interior design theme. With a vast number of rooms to furnish, a combination of Hartland 1, 2 and 3-gang rocker switches were specified for controlling lighting in each room.

    2-gang dual-switched sockets were selected for power supply while further dual-switched sockets equipped with two USB charger points were also fitted at bedsides for easy access. One USB port is 1A rated for mobile phone charging and a second 2.1A USB port is for charging tablets and other devices. With USB charging capabilities, the Hamilton switched sockets meet the demands of modern hotel guests who want to be connected 24/7 using their smart devices.

Meanwhile, the 19 ‘Music’ rooms feature Hartland products finished in Antique Brass with Antique Brass switches and Black inserts. All bathrooms are fitted with Hartland plates finished in Satin Steel with White inserts.

    Hotel Indigo Cardiff is due to start taking guest bookings in November with much anticipation building for the opening of this stunning hotel. Andrew Miles, senior project manager, Kier Construction Western and Wales, said: “Kier is pleased to be long-standing customers of Hamilton. We have always been impressed by the company’s quality solutions and customer service.

The clean, timeless design of the Hartland collection was perfect for this project and we’re thrilled to have been involved with delivering such a unique high-quality establishment.”

    Hotel Indigo® Cardiff’s General Manager, Tom Gaskell, added: “We take immense pride in our attention to detail and we’re pleased to have found an electrical partner that takes this as seriously as us.

    535 350 Daniel Fountain

    Following a successful show last year, Hamilton is again returning to interior design exhibition Decorex on 17-20 September 2017, held at Syon Park, London. At the event, Hamilton will launch their popular Hartland CFX® and Sheer CFX® ranges in a new primed finish that can be painted to match any interior colour or theme, making customisation even more accessible.

    The new primed finish plates will be displayed on Stand H37a at the show, which is a key event for interior designers. As well as the sleek and modern Hartland CFX® and Sheer CFX® ranges, the primed finish option is also available on any bespoke plates so they can be painted to match a wall colour, wallpaper or soft furnishings. The primed plates come with a choice of insert finishes, from Bright Chrome to Antique Brass, and with either black or white inset surrounds.

    Decorex takes place ahead of Hamilton’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2018. During the past five decades, the family-run British business has become renowned for supplying high quality decorative electrical wiring accessories, lighting control and multi-room audio systems that are manufactured and finished to an exceptional standard. They will have a plethora of product on show that have been designed to create the right look and ambience in any space, while meeting the exacting project demands of architects, interior designers and tech-savvy homeowners.

    The latest development in lighting control is the RGB DMX option, where a colour-wash can be used as accent lighting to add drama to a space. – ideal for use in guest rooms, bars and restaurants. Matching control plates are available from the Hamilton collections for that totally coordinated look.

    Also on show is Hamilton’s Mercury Multi-Room Audio System, which allows guests to listen to their own music effortlessly via USB and/or Bluetooth connections throughout their suite.

    Both the lighting and audio systems can be controlled via Hamilton’s vast portfolio of switch plates and ‘key card switch’ systems, which can be effortlessly programmed to activate specific pre-set lighting scenes as well as control other room functions such as air conditioning, blinds and entertainment centres.
