Occupying one of London’s most exclusive addresses and just a stone’s throw from The Ritz and Fortnum & Mason is this exclusive Mayfair private residence. Once home to Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole and his youngest son Horace Walpole, the beautiful listed Georgian residence exudes style and opulence throughout.
Internally a 15m long crystal chandelier creates a breathtaking centerpiece in the residence’s grand spiral stair case. UFO was asked to supply and install a fibre optic lighting system which would illuminate the large chandelier. We opted to install multiple lengths of our glass fibre and P17T fittings within the chandelier, not only concealing the end fittings and fibre from view but also ensuring that the entire drop was lit for dramatic effect. Several of our 150W Compact metal halide light sources are used to power the fibre optics with bright white light and are stored out of view.
In the residence’s private bar and cinema room a cloud-like formation of sparkling Swarovski crystals adorns part of the ceiling. The crystals are illuminated with 240 tails of our polymer fibre and miniature downlights, all of which were fitted in a grid formation above the cloud by our installation engineers. Our 150W QFX metal halide lights sources provide the fibre optics with the bright white light that can be seen in the image opposite.
