Dirty Martini’s ‘spirited sophistication’ is just going from strength to strength. Following eight successful venues across London, the latest addition is located in the Minories and the brand also ventured out of the Capital for the first time – Dirty Martini Cardiff opened in October 2016.
Continuing our cooperation with Grapes Design, the people behind the stunning and glamorous interior, we supplied a myriad of bespoke lighting features. These form a backdrop for the guests whilst they enjoy the delicious and globally inspired cocktails.
In Cardiff where part of the ceiling is dominated by a striking Welsh dragon mural, a group of twenty hexagonal ceiling lights add to the drama. Measuring one metre in diameter, each fitting features seven metal panels with laser-cut patterns. These produce a sharp silhouette resulting in a more masculine feeling compared to the copper mesh versions used in previous venues.
In a quieter corner eight pleated fabric pendants make an elegant statement, the delicate material and sumptuous colour enhancing the opulent and luscious setting.
In the Minories London venue the feature that really stands out is the hexagonal pendant on the second floor. It is more than one metre in diameter and one and a half metres in length. The fitting combines two hexagonal modules with laser-cut patterns which softly diffuse the light and create a warm and inviting ambience.
We also supplied laser-cut column lights and wall lights across the two venues to highlight the brand consistency.
