Novotel Canary Wharf
Luminaire Arts worked alongside Koncept Design Studio and Accor Hotels to commission Sam’s stunning installation at Novotel Canary Wharf.
He was inspired by the history of the area, which was formerly a thriving port, and working in collaboration with the hotel’s industrial ethos, he has created two large steel wall panel installations, measuring a very impressive 9 metres wide by 3 metres high!
This 39 storey hotel has certainly made an impact on the Canary Wharf skyline, with beautifully designed interiors throughout and a split level roof terrace bar with panoramic views over London.
The first installation is a riot of colour as you walk in to the hotel; with a strong focus on art in the lobby area, it is in fact titled the ‘gallery’. Highly textural, the panels act as a focal point for guests, while also providing a decorative background.
Sam used mixture of recycled materials, coffee, and intense heat to create the ‘rusted’ effect. He worked exclusively with Dulux to create the colours exactly to the hotel and designer’s specification.
