Kimpton Fitzroy, London

  • Client: Benjamin West
  • Designer: Tara Bernerd & Partners

A mixture of bespoke and off-the-shelf lighting creations by Chelsom were selected to illuminate spaces with Kimpton Fitzroy London, the reimagined offer within Charles Fitzroy Doll’s historic former Hotel Russell. Guestrooms and suites incorporate a selection of Chelsom pieces including current collection highlights such as the Boston wall light in a black bronze finish, as well as the swing floor lamp and Criterion ceiling pendant, generating an aesthetic that pays homage to the property’s storied past.

Working with designer Tara Bernerd & Partners, Chelsom also developed a series of custom designs for corridors, creating special takes on existing pieces to suit the unique identity of the project. Black bronze and English brass tones are prevalent throughout, whilst profiles are contemporary yet classical to both fit the period work and heritage elements whilst nodding to the forward-thinking nature of the Kimpton brand.

Chelsom’s inclusion comes as part of an ambitious collaboration between Bernerd, EPR Architects, and Russell Sage Studio to usher the hotel into the 21st century, encompassing interior and exterior alterations which saw the unloved property given a new lease of life.
