PROJECT：Fab Guest (Brighton, UK / 2013 )
DESIGN: Niki Best
When interior designer, Niki Best, was first appointed to work on this renovated contemporary guesthouse in Brighton, she tells us that Anglepoise® came instantly to mind.
Her brief was to source classic British products that would give the Georgian townhouse interior a contemporary feel without looking incongruous and Anglepoise® ticked all the right boxes. Initially she planned to install classic Anglepoise® Original 1227™ desk lamps in all 14 guestrooms, but realized that space restrictions made the wall and ceiling mounted Duo® lamps better suited.
For the main reception space in Fab Guest, Best wanted to introduce a strong statement piece that guests would engage with, so she specified a Giant 1227™ floor lamp in custom colour. She was not disappointed; says Best, “our ‘big boy’ is a talking point for everyone. We have some great pictures of the guests posing with him. The house simply wouldn’t be the same without him.”
