Statement hospitality lighting

Astro Lighting’s new collection includes two new ranges that offer a complete set of floor, table, wall and wall-mounted reading lights for a cohesive lighting scheme. The Venn range brings warm ambient lighting and focused task lighting to hospitality guest rooms and other spaces. Its matching floor light, desk light, wall light and wall light-reader combination make Venn an elegant, functional addition to any modern interior. All Venn lights are designed for use with Astro’s minimalist Stadium shade, inspired by modernist architecture. They are also available in a switch-operated version on a Made to Order basis.

Astro’s second complete set of new lights, Leda, adds a unique, pared back dimension to the new collection. The matching floor light, desk light, wall light and swing-arm wall light bring a contemporary accent to any hospitality guest room or living space. Leda’s distinctive cylindrical shade is available separately in a range of Made to Order modern finishes, and it uses replaceable, long-lasting GU10 lamps, enabling full flexibility in the choice of light colour and brightness. In addition, Leda’s lamp head features an innovative, heat-dispersing design which maximises the lifespan of the lamp.

Serge is inspired by the casual elegance of Parisian lighting designs. Ascoli features a pared-back silhouette with a crisp, precision-crafted shade and base, and a switch conveniently built into its base for ease of access.
