Product watch: A look at what’s new from Franklite

Gather round because Franklite, shortlisted for Best in Tech category for The Brit List Awards 2021, has just dropped new, innovative and modern product ranges that launched this month, as we continue to put the spotlight on lighting.

Over the last few months, the team at lighting brand Franklite have been working tirelessly to design a range of products that are not only functional and efficient, but also beautiful and creative.

The Shell, a nautical inspired design matt black openwork pendant with a black cable suspension. This exceptional pendant will complement a space with coastal elements and wood tones such as shiplap wall panelling.

The Kasteel range is so unique with its twisted metalwork arms. These dark, antique bronze fittings with brushed brass candle tubes consists of two and three light wall brackets along with larger five, eight and 15 light fittings. The four light fitting is supplied with a chain suspension which can easily be converted to a flush fitting suitable for low ceilings.

Meanwhile, the Diva range is exactly that, extravagant! Chrome finish fittings surrounded by rectangular crystals with a mass display of crystal glass spheres as a base. This magnificent range includes 11, 15 and 20 light fittings and matching wall bracket. When lit, the colour temperature and reflection of the lamps creates very distinctive ambiences.

The Taper range now includes wall brackets, floor and table lamps. A phenomenal 21 light spanning 1,2m in length has been added to the Wisteria range.

Chelsom Lighting Launches Edition 26

702 470 Hamish Kilburn

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.
