For Est Lighting, Christopher Elliott has designed a new type of space

For the Australian lighting brand Est Lighting, the studio Christopher Elliott has taken up the challenge of creating a space where these varied light sources dedicated to architecture can be perfectly highlighted. The studio's architects had to deal with a high ceiling and sawtooth industrial space in order to insert comfortable and domestic alcoves, much more suitable for the presentation of such luminaires. Discover this 4.0 showroom with the appearance of a co-working space, and the prestigious Est Lighting collection.

 

 

 

Taming space for Est Lighting

Recreating spaces that are intimate and that everyone can relate to is probably the most risky step in the design exercise of a exhibition area. A showroom is, moreover, a very specific place because by its definition, halfway between a gallery and a sales space. However, the Christopher Elliott studio took up the challenge, designing an efficient interior that perfectly matches the image that the Est Lighting brand conveys.

Indeed, initially intended for architects and interior designers, Est Lighting presents decorative or architectural lighting fixtures in minimalist design  for some, grandiose for others, and this while scrupulously respecting the functional aspect that is a real priority for the profession. What could be more difficult, then, than to stage them in a large industrial space. To do this, Christopher Elliott Studio has set up several elements: first, to recreate low ceilings in space, on a domestic scale. Then, by structuring and perforating these same spaces with arches of all sizes and different materials, inspired by the way light interacts with curved surfaces.

And it is probably because the interior design studio and the lighting brand know each other well, having worked together on projects in the past, that Christopher Elliott has given life to such a space. Using materials that guide light as well as shadows, so that both the space and the products displayed appear at their best.

As an interior designer, Christopher Elliott knows how much easier it is to approach the product issue as a collaboration rather than a sale to architects. It is therefore based both on this feeling and on the lighting brand's desire to offer an exhibition space that has common points with a place for co-workingthat the design studio designed the showroom.

The success of coworking spaces and cafés in which it is quite comfortable to work is so huge that interior designers have to take interest in them. By arranging pieces such as a coffee machine, a bar, spaces for groups, individual spaces, Christopher Elliott clings to this universe in order to make the link between it and a casual and relaxed atmosphere, and that of the showroom, more formal by habit. A space that makes you want to spend time there and whose friendly atmosphere is felt even in the smallest corners.

In addition, the studio took care to organize the exhibition of the luminous pieces so that each visitor had an overview of the collection, thanks in particular to the arched openings mentioned above. In this showroom, it is not a question of overbidding products, exposing the slightest piece in order to sell at any price. On the contrary, the luminaires each have their own space, without contradicting each other. The product discovery process is fluid, each collection is intelligently represented and highlighted. A well thought-out space, a key showroom in the evolution of the Australian design and sales areas in general.
