Wimbledon based design studio Caxton Rhode have unveiled their latest work of art, a solid light installation made from Corianģ for a luxury Chelsea apartment. Rob Bartlett, Creative Director of Caxton Rhode, was commissioned by Annie Friend of Anniemation Interiors to complete the brief. At nearly a metre in diameter, and completed from concept to creation in only four weeks, this dramatic piece of wall lighting perfectly fulfilled the requirement that the lighting design should reflect the sumptuous feel and finish that was applied throughout the scheme. Known as a “tailor of interiors”, Rob Bartlett opted for Glacier Ice White Corianģ from CD UK and fabricated by Zone Creations for the material’s durability and beauty. The product’s translucent qualities and malleability made it the perfect choice for this design, delivering hotel standard lighting for one client’s exclusive use. To maintain the material’s integrity and ensure a flawless distribution of light, the patterned fascia was milled directly into a single solid sheet. An outer shell was constructed from sections of the same material, before being bonded and polished to create one unified and seam-free piece. A spiral of remote-controlled LED’s provide a dimmable, true-white light from within.
