Light fittings supplied

Copper mesh ceiling feature and matching wall lights, pleated pendant ceiling sconces

Famous for their exquisite hand-crafted cocktails, Dirty Martini has become a favourite for party goers and celebrities in London with eight venues in prime locations across the Capital.

Grapes Design has created a sophisticated yet glamorous scheme for the brand with a fine balance between elegant and edgy, commissioning Northern Lights to develop an array of bespoke lighting features. Dramatic in form with polished metal finishes, these fittings are visually stunning with a subtle playful twist - much like the overall scheme.

Copper mesh ceiling features are used across the venues to create a strong and consistent brand image. The copper mesh panels were hand-rolled and welded together in various shapes and sizes to accommodate the different layouts of each site. They make an eye-catching statement as well as connecting the different areas within the venue with light reflecting off the rich finish, enhancing the signature dark ambience of the brand. To complete the look we also supplied matching pendants and wall lights.

Featuring delicate golden-lined silk fabrics, the eight-arm pleated pendants are a real statement piece for the seating areas, they create a decisive focal point within the space and contrasts with the slightly masculine edge of the copper mesh features.
