Corian® shines as luxury lighting

Corian® shines as luxury lighting

Caxton Rhode continue to grow with their latest large-scale commission.

The Wimbledon based design studio recently unveiled their latest work of art, a solid Corian light installation for a
luxury Chelsea apartment. Rob Bartlett, Creative Director of Caxton Rhode, was commissioned by fellow SW19
designer, Annie Friend (of Anniemation Interiors) to complete the brief.

At nearly a metre in diameter, this dramatic piece of wall lighting perfectly embodies the Caxton Rhode approach.

Rob sees himself as a Tailor of Interiors, personally attending to every detail, including the design of every piece.

“I opted to use Glacier Ice White Corian because it excels on so many levels.”

“The feel and finish of this commission was a key consideration for me. Annie had used a range of sumptuous
materials throughout her scheme and therefore the same had to apply to my lighting design.

I opted to use Glacier Ice White Corian because it excels on so many levels. Not only is it durable and beautiful by default, but the translucent qualities of this particular type made it the perfect choice for this design. I have alwaysloved the sheer malleability of Corian. For me it is the perfect product; as premium as natural stone, with an innate flexibility that makes it so unique."

To maintain the material’s integrity and ensure a flawless distribution of light, the patterned fascia was milled directly into a single solid sheet. An outer shell was constructed from sections of the same material, before being bonded and polished to create one unified and seam-free piece. A spiral of remote-controlled LED’s provide a dimmable, true-white light from within.

Completed (from concept to creation) in four short weeks, this is hotel standard lighting for one client’s exclusive use.
