    Delicately illuminating the deep recessed ceiling of the Equus Bar at the Royal Horseguards Hotel London, suspended strings of clear acrylic shapes offer subtle sparkle to the bar and reception areas. Designed in collaboration with STS Design, to give a contemporary organic focus to the coffered ceiling with glints of bright light whilst highlighting the classic Victorian features, each recess houses hundreds of random acrylic shapes, all highly polished to catch the light. Eight low voltage 35w IRC downlighters are encased within each stainless steel ceiling plates giving flashes of brilliant light, reflected by the individually strung acrylic drops.

    Part of a major restoration for this magnificent 5 star Guoman hotel, the Equus bar is now an eclectic mix of furnishings combined to recreate the ‘Gentleman’s Club’ atmosphere of yesteryear.
