BELSTAFF’S LONDON STORE LIGHTING
Global luxury brand Belstaff recently invited motorcycle aficionado David Beckham to open their new flagship London store on New Bond Street, bringing the city to a standstill as the footballer posed in the street outside with an entourage of models sporting the latest in Belstaff branded leathers.
The façade of the Grade 2 listed building has been retained but the interior structure of the building has been completely redesigned to reflect Belstaff’s unique British heritage.
According to their principles of employing exquisite craftsmanship and fine materials, Manhattan-based design firm Studio Sofield commissioned Collier Webb to create an impressive collection of bronze lanterns and plafonniers for the store’s ground floor. In design, these pieces are simple and elegant; in manufacture, masterpieces of execution.
Collier Webb handled additional components for the Belstaff London design, including a line of lamps from their catalogue range. Other custom lighting and hardware elements also feature prominently in the store and the Collier Webb Foundry cast the two bronze name plaques that follow the contours of the columns which flank the boutique’s central entrance.
