Having previously supplied something for this space many years previous, Knight Frank Facilities was aware that we were likely to be able to help them with a similar scheme at another of their buildings. 

They were keen to improve the whole aesthetic of the reception area at One Glass Wharf in Bristol, to bring the space up to a high quality standard for their tenants by adding something eye catching to create this reception canopy.

Under a paid design commission, we presented four different feature options, focused around the eye catching qualities and also protection for the staff in the reception from possible falling objects from above.

The final design incorporated both a halo design, but also elements that extend up into the circular space above, utilising existing fixings and cables drawing the eye upward to the tall space above.

Integrated remote controlled LED lighting provides a subtle light to the feature, appearing stronger on duller days and in the winter months. 

The fabric carries a class O fire rating and is able to cleaned from the stairs surrounding the space.
