Phillippe Starck has created the luxurious hotel, Lily of The Valley, located on the French Riviera, up in the hills of Saint-Tropez overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The fantastic location makes demands on both materials and the interior, and the designer has especially focused on lighting to create an atmospheric universe that matches the extraordinary location.
The right light has a great influence on the guests' first impressions of the hotel, and especially if the guests arrive in the evening, lighting is of great importance - outside as well as inside. Therefore, it requires understanding of architecture, as well as knowledge of light and shadows, to create the best lighting conditions. Philippe Starck appointed Venø copper lamp from Nordlux as the most optimal solution for outdoor lighting at the hotel. The exclusive copper lamp has a sophisticated and timeless design and is beautifully integrated with the wooden walls and neutral earthy tones. Likewise, Venø is chosen as the three screens and glass insert lets soft and comfortable light shine through, creating a relaxing and homely atmosphere in the luxurious oasis.
Philippe Starck is acknowledged for his beautiful designs and creations all over the world and has always pushed the boundaries of design. He has created the luxurious hotel with inspiration from Californian villas and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The hotel embraces and adapts the landscape with organic materials and tone-in-tone earthy colours, which reflects the stunning nature, where the Venø copper lamps fits perfectly into the unique atmosphere.
The following Nordlux lamps are utilized in the project: Venø outdoor lamp in copper.
