Each work of art was commissioned to fit the colourways of the space, was hand finished with precious metal leaf or resins, and stayed affordable.
Chester Square, London
After visiting our showroom, Laura chose several pieces of art available in our gallery and beautiful golden ‘Lily Pads’ by Isobel were commissioned for one of the bathrooms. Isobel does gorgeous delicate porcelain work where each piece is hand crafted, fired three times and finished with a variety of colours. An elegant teal sculpture by Philip enlivened a corridor on one of the floors and Jennifer provided three drawings for the guest bedrooms. A large canvas by Beatriz was chosen to go above a staircase. Beatriz’s work is inspired by her surroundings as she translates the energy and visual information of her daily life into her work using colour as her personal language.
24 King William Street
Ben Adams Architects recommended Luminaire Arts to their client as we have a wide range of artwork to choose from. The clients went through original paintings, prints and photography in our database to find the perfect style and medium for the large reception space.
Paul’s work was chosen as his use of double exposure is reflecting the ever changing face and weather of London. Paul captures objects on his traditional film camera as they change from one point of view to another. The work, installed at almost 6m height, required a tower and expertise of our art installer. The works themselves are 1.8m high and 2m wide and are also visible through the large window face at the front of the building.
The Maple Building
The Maple Building is an elegant, clean-lined luxury apartment building in London’s Kentish Town. Many parts of London have their own village feel and Kentish Town is no different. A unique atmosphere is enhanced by beautiful parks and quiet streets.
To complement the designer’s choice of natural colours and textures in the newly built luxurious interiors, our consultants have felt it would be best to enhance these with Jennifer’s work; a south African born artist settled in UK, whose work often resembles maps and various natural phenomena.
Luminaire Arts were asked to propose a selection of bespoke artworks for the recent refurb of suites at Claridges hotel, Mayfair.
Considering the prestige and art deco heritage of the 5* brand alongside the contemporary clientele of the hotel, Luminaire Arts were proud to present talented British artists for the project.
Artists puts forward were prized for their technical and artistic skill especially in areas of photography and ceramics.
With clarity, passion and dedication Luminaire Arts have installed artwork that has had great response from both staff and guests at the hotel
Novotel Canary Wharf, London
Luminaire Arts worked alongside Koncept Design Studio and Accor Hotels to commission Sam’s stunning installation at Novotel Canary Wharf.
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.
Mercure Sheffield St Pauls Hotel & Spa
Luminaire Arts were asked by LRW Architects to come up with a creative solution for a large sculpture to inhabit the wall of the elegant atrium space at the St Pauls Hotel in Sheffield.
The hotel atrium housed an elegant and spacious space next to a Winter Garden for guests to relax, eat and converse making it perfect for a commissioned piece that would be admired for years to come. The designers had envisioned a concept of wind swept leaves in a material close to Sheffield’s cultural and historical heart: steel.
In searching for an artist, Eddie was the perfect fit. Self taught metal sculptor Eddies’ work opens up form, shape, colour light and the use of materials with an architectural and geometric feel, especially steel. Eddie worked with Luminaire Arts and the client to produce a bespoke wall sculpture made from water jet cut corten steel leaves, which were hand formed and finished.
Artisan apartments, London
Luminaire Arts have successfully teamed up with award winning design practice Rolfe Judd and developer Dukelease to complete three artisanal boutique apartments in London’s artistic quarter of Fitzrovia with fantastic artworks and sculpture.
The Artisan project on Goodge Street had art and craftsmanship at the centre of its design ethos and the project has deservedly won the London Evening Standard Conversion of the Year Award. The artwork was very specific to the project and the apartments, the works needed to be unusual but in a sophisticated, no nonsense way, they were very much part of the interior design concept.
The developers on Artisan were focused on having an exclusive bespoke offering they could use as an additional selling element. As interior designers it is always a pleasure to use bespoke ‘one-off’ products to give a sense of identity and personal style.
North london residence
Interiors by Sarah Ward has teamed up with our consultants to source art work for an elegant, large North London property. This extraordinary mansion was developed by Octagon in a Conservation Area in North London. It’s comprising 21,630 square feet and was built in the Georgian style.
Luminaire Arts provided 8 pieces of art for this stunning property in association with Interiors by Sarah Ward. The artwork we commissioned included two 2 metre by 2 metre large scale resin, silver leaf and oil paintings by Jennifer, and artworks by Mireia. The remarkable pieces by Beth were chosen in the gallery as the client loved the colours and movement of the medium.
