Cottonmill is a contemporary three-storey, private members' spa, which opened in late-2022 to great accolades.
Sitting room feature pendant, modified Luca wall lights and swivel-arm pendants.
Sparcstudio Design developed the interiors and architectural design for this £14 million project with a brief to create a 'World-Class Spa'.
Following their tireless efforts for the Sopwell House suites, the creative team at Sparcstudio brought the same air of elegance to the spa shown throughout Sopwell House.
After completing the work on the suites at Sopwell House, the team at Northern Lights was tasked with designing and manufacturing another collection of bespoke lighting fixtures that would complement the rustic interior of the spa. The spa features bespoke furniture design and fittings, from the small oval glass, brass and stone tables in the sitting room to the luxurious bespoke double loungers for the Garden Relaxation and Whisper rooms to bronze privacy screens, as well as the glazed screens between reception and the sitting room with cotton-reel installation.
Working in collaboration with Sparcstudio is a delight for our design and manufacturing teams as Northern Lights has been well acquainted with them in recent years, having realised their vision for bespoke lighting at Harrods Hair & Beauty in 2021. The task set for our team was to create lighting that matched the overall feel of the "über luxurious" interiors, which is driven by the guest experience.
Throughout the corridors and above the reception, a selection of our satin brass swivel-arm pendants brings warm illumination to key areas of the venue. The impressively handcrafted fixtures have been well considered, as the adjustable positioning of the arms ensures that each fitting can spread as much light as possible in every direction.
In the main sitting area of the spa, our show-stopping feature pendant complements the rusticity of the interior by marrying handcrafted branch-like brushed brass metalwork with naturally blown Suffolk glass shades. The decorative indentations within the glass elevate the fixture to a new level, showing a range of incredible skills to complete the pendant. The fitting benefits from twelve arms, each completed with a glass shade.
Finally, a modified iteration of our Luca wall sconce has been designed to bring a personal aura to each sunbed found throughout the spa. The iconic teardrop fixture is finished in hand-applied brushed brass and completed with a blown opal sphere. The sleek design of our Luca fixtures allows them to fit into a vast array of interiors, and Cottonmill Spa is no exception.
