The Britannic House Pendant
The Britannic House pendant appears strikingly contemporary despite being designed in 1920 for BP's head office Britannic House in London. The sandblasted glass halo reflects light from the inner glass bowl.
S Lantern Pendant
The 'S' Lantern chandeliers were designed in 1929 for the garden loggia of the Viceroy's house in New Delhi. The lantern is typical of Lutyens's love of geometry with the octagonal central cage supported by a circular base and top. Each 'S' motif is separately cast and assembled by hand to create this unique fitting. The lantern is also available in timber.
For both the Britannic House and S-Lantern fittings, we have adapted the designs to wall sconce versions.
Both the S- Lantern, the chain of the Britannic House lantern and both the sconce can be ordered in a variety of metal finishes.
The S-Lantern can be custom made to various sizes and dimensions. Standard sizes are as follows:
|Small||230mm / 9"||430mm / 17"|
|Medium||410mm / 16"||710mm / 28"||40kgs|
|Large||685.8mm / 270"||1219mm / 48"||105kgs|
The Brook House Ceiling Light
The Brook House light was designed by Edwin’s son Robert for a London apartment in which he collaborated with the redoubtable Syrie Maugham on the interior architecture in 1936. A photograph of the main entrance hall of the apartment shows that at least three were made. All are now lost. We have looked very carefully at making the light with a diameter of 750mm with a nickel finish, glass and nickel beads and frosted glass panels.
The Mansfield Pendant
Lutyens used the Mansfield pendant in many of his houses. This photograph shows an original, as we have not yet had the opportunity to make it. It would be available in a variety of metal finishes with moulded frosted glass.
The Lozenge lantern is a fitting of our own design yet utilizing the lozenge shape that Lutyens often used in his detailing. The fitting has been especially developed to incorporate the use of fabric, specifically the very exciting and beautiful range of fabrics designed and produced by Fortuny of Venice and New York.
The fabric illustrated is Papiro in tan, olive, plum & gold. Others may be sourced via Fortuny at www.fortuny.com or through their downloadable app for i-phone and i-pad.
The frame is available as bronze, (illustrated) or antique silver.
The lantern shown in the gallery is 664cm/21.8" high and 663cm/21.7" diameter of the canopy. Smaller sizes may be specified.
