Working with our Agent Vann FID, this was the fourth year we have exhibited at the Hotel Show Dubai, the largest and most comprehensive business to business event for the hospitality industry in the Middle East. Here we talk to both Espino Soodbakhsh, Managing Director of Vann FID and Donna Gridley, Northern Lights new Head of Creative.
"For the Hotel Show this year we really wanted to do something different" said Espino. "We are launching new collections of furniture and lighting with our UK partners Northern Lights and wanted a striking and spacious scheme to properly showcase our new products. The converging angles and warm grey walls with rosewood detailing are a perfect canvas for our new upholstered range of stools and elegantly oak turned coffee tables in walnut finishes."
Donna Gridley added "This was a fantastic space to launch my first collections. I wanted to showcase our manufacturing processes including our new laser cutter and CNC router. The laser cut Art Noveau /Arabesque inspired Xanthe chandelier and Aurelia pendant are hand finished in a tarnished gold patina with opulent crystal and silk tassel details and presented beautifully against the backdrop of warm slate"
The Hotel Show also saw the launch of the mid-century inspired Caledon range - lights cut in rose teak fins and finished in brass that complement the rich ochre palette of Vann's brushed cotton bench and new walnut console table.
Stunning smoke glass and brass fretwork pendants at the front of the stand completed the new lighting and are a perfect foil for the new range of stylish gold lacquer resin sculptures.
This elegant design attracted a lot of attention from both visitors and media representatives. Many designers and architects have commented on the exceptional quality and design flair of the new products.
Northern Lights has become a major decorative lighting supplier to the Middle East market in recent years with completed projects which include the Waldorf Astoria Dubai, H Hotel Dubai, The Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa and Hyatt Regency Dubai.We were delighted to make such a positive impression at the show and look forward to even more success in one of the fastest growing markets in the world.
