    The new South Place Hotel opened by restaurateurs D&D in the City of London has been designed to reflect the culture and distinct style of the area and the quintessential essence of what makes Britain great. This approach includes specially commissioned works from London artists and Angler, a British seafood restaurant, as well as the choice of bespoke lighting from Dernier & Hamlyn whose craftsmen have been manufacturing chandeliers and other light fittings in South London since 1888.Designed by Conran and Partners Dernier & Hamlyn produced statement fittings for 3 South Place Restaurant, 3 South Place Bar and for one of the 1st-floor meeting rooms, as well as more than 300 pendant and reading lights for the hotel’s 80 bedrooms.

    Associate director at Conran and Partners Tina Norden comments:
    “We have worked with Dernier and Hamlyn on many projects, they are always first to mind when we commission custom light fittings. We know that we can rely on them for quality and service and that this is always backed by their extensive expertise and honest advice.”

    Dernier & Hamlyn’s light fittings at South Place incorporated a range of materials and manufacturing techniques to achieve Conran and Partner’s design objectives and included layered shades to diffuse light in the bedroom areas, two stainless steel trough style chandeliers (10m long and 5m long) on the ground floor and a circular bronze fitting featuring 78 lamps for the meeting room.
