LED filament specialist Bright Goods has announced its installation in Kingston’s brand new DoubleTree Hilton Hotel. The range of decorative, vintage-style LED filament lamps is lighting up the ground floor public areas including the reception, lobby and restaurant. The project was specified and managed by interior design architects DesignLSM in conjunction with The Light Corporation.
The DoubleTree, an upmarket 146-bedroom Hilton hotel located on the edge of the town, offers contemporary accommodation, state-of-the-art conference facilities and the hotel’s restaurant, Hawkers Bar and Brasserie, which is themed around Kingston’s extensive aviation history. It is an Art Deco-inspired area with an open-plan kitchen and an enclosed outside dining terrace.
The Light Corporation was commissioned to design a lighting system that not only complemented the aviation theme but provided warm and elegant illumination throughout. A vast range of Bright Goods LED filament lamps was specified to enhance distinct areas of the hotel. The lamps, all in 2.2K very warm colour temperatures, highlight the various shaped LED filaments and create a welcoming, atmospheric ambience.
The Florence 6W sepia tinted maxi globes, for example, are hung bare and installed in clusters amongst the copper pipework that runs around the perimeter of the restaurant, designed to give a contemporary, industrial feel. The Elizabeth 3W candles, Joseph 5W GLS bulbs, Jane 6W sepia tinted classic pears and John 6W long tubes are installed throughout the reception area, lobby, lounge, kitchen, bar and restaurant area to provide a warm and cosy glow for all visitors.
“Aesthetically, we were looking to create a modern and industrial décor and the Bright Goods LED filament lamps definitely helped us achieve this,’ says Steven Brazil, general manager at DoubleTree by Hilton in Kingston. “They look fantastic and we have received some really positive feedback from our hotel guests who have commented on their vintage-modern design. We wanted to incorporate ‘mood lighting’ which could be altered throughout the day and into the evening – and as these lamps are fully controllable, and can be dimmed when required, they were exactly what we were looking for.”
Matt Parker, project lighting designer of The Light Corporation adds, “We use Bright Goods lamps in every project we do in the hospitality sector and trust them for reliability, longevity and consistency of colour. Two years down the line after our first installation of Bright Goods lamps, they are still going strong, not a single lamp failure which is fantastic. It is good for us as it proves we are with the right supplier and good for Bright Goods as it verifies their longevity. We know they work, they look great and they perform – but more than that, they are going to last a long time.”
