Novotel London Blackfriars

  • Client: Accor Hotels
  • Designer: Proof Consultancy Ltd

Chelsom produced a myriad of striking custom- designed fixtures for the bar, restaurant and reception areas at the Novotel London Blackfriars Hotel featuring varying designs of matt black shades with contemporary lines and shapes at the forefront. A duo of 5 armed pendants provide dramatic centrepieces above the bar, black powder coated frames support a contemporary styled cluster of cotton shades positioned at varying heights to create visual impact whilst maximising the light output in the bar area.

A succession of industrial style wall lights run down the main wall of the restaurant featuring shallow tapered drum shades suspended from long reach arm brackets designed to throw pockets of ambient lighting on to the tables below while both the bar and break out areas are lit by slim curved arm pendants supporting over- sized statement shades lined in a sumptuous sunflower yellow pongee silk.
Reflecting the city locations favoured by the Novotel brand, the contemporary lighting scheme blends efficiency with superior design resulting in greatly enhanced aesthetics of the ‘urban chic’ aura Proof have created throughout.
