The Orient Jerusalem
HBA’s design brief was clear from the start; the bespoke lighting needed to be high quality, contemporary and complementing of the natural Jerusalem stone that is so prominent in the area.
The Orient Jerusalem
All Bespoke Lighting for Public Areas & Presidential Suite
The custom screen light embodies all these core principles. Proudly made in our UK manufacturing facility, the framework was created to give a definitive boundary in the bar area while allowing visitors to look through the space and take in all the different elements.
Northern lights were asked to develop and manufacture all the bespoke lighting for the public areas and the presidential suite for the newly opened Orient. HBA’s design brief was clear from the start; the bespoke lighting needed to be high quality, contemporary and complementing of the natural Jerusalem stone that is so prominent in the area.
The ‘random’ layout was meticulously designed to give an even coverage of light and density. The client challenged us to make these large bespoke screens with minimal tolerances, leaving the contractor with very little work to do when the fittings arrived on site. All fixings were hidden to make the frame as minimal and seamless as possible, reinforcing the luxury lighting feel. Northern lights also developed a unique hand-hammered finish that gave character, texture and depth on closer inspection.
The chandelier over the main stairwell was another piece of bespoke lighting that needed to have a presence without being overpowering. HBA wanted the design to focus on the fine details such as gold-leaf caps on the glass shades and the extra loops of flex to fill open space. We attended site to help oversee the installation of this fitting due to the complicated location and fixing points.
With so many natural and quality materials on show, our continuing focus was developing bespoke finishes that would complement the rest of the interior scheme and showcase the original bespoke lighting designs by HBA.
Northern lights have been a UK lighting manufacturer for over 30 years, and we’ve been working across the globe to help bring hospitality lighting projects such as this one to life.
