Yet they’re usually the first thing you see when you step foot inside a building, which means they have the power to set the tone for the rest of a design scheme. Because they’re hung vertically and positioned just off-centre, the simplicity of the trio mirrors the clean geometric lines seen in the stairwell behind.
Positioned at diagonally intersecting angles, a series of MEA suspension lights draws the eye up and elongates the space. Their ultra-contemporary form and exposed wiring also contrast with the period wall panelling to create an atmosphere of modern grandeur. Here, ETU is featured in a custom blue glass finish, with stark blackened brass that marries with the choice of black leather recliner. The simple silhouette of our MEA wall, finished in brushed brass, aligns with the wrought geometric staircase and sharply cut wooden steps to create a minimalists’ paradise.
In a sparse design scheme like this one, the sleek linear form of a wall light maintains aesthetic balance and adds functionality without taking over the space.
