London calling! LASVIT cipher-izes The Londoner hotel
Post by Bellavita Luxury

The Londoner super-boutique hotel has recently opened in the iconic Leicester Square – just steps away from the UK capital’s most notable theatres. It was designed by Yabu Pushelberg as an ode to the art of performance, and the internationally renowned design studio teamed up with LASVIT to create an emotional landscape which accommodates everyone. Come in and see our iconic collection Cipher glow in wholly new constellations that bring each of the hotel’s spaces to life!

The backbone of the hotel is formed by an exposed staircase which leads the guests and visitors from the ground floor to the event spaces below-ground. Spanning four storeys, the stairwell is adorned with a customized version of the Cipher chandelier that shapes the visual and physical continuity of the space.

“We wanted The Londoner’s Cipher installations to evoke positive emotions in their visitors, to uplift them. Along with Yabu Pushelberg, we wanted to shape beautiful spaces – light creates space and space creates emotion. And in this case, we did a great job,” says Leon Jakimič, LASVIT’s owner and president.

A subtle theatrical dialogue is staged in the green room which doubles as a private lounge. Here, a cluster of horizontal Cipher chandeliers shines bright right above the bar desk inlaid in green marble mosaic. The softly shadowed light genuinely enhances the place’s intimate atmosphere.

When descending further, more Cipher pendants can be found. Cipher chandeliers delicately illuminate the lower floor, accommodating guests in a ballroom lounge as well as visitors of the gallery located one floor further down. Another Cipher chandelier, this time in the form of a star, also welcomes the guests to the hotel spa.

The Cipher product family contains not only pendants, but also two types of table lamps, a floor lamp and even a vertical wall sconce. These adorn the hotel lobby and reception space on the ground floor, among others.

The Cipher collection gives everyone a unique opportunity to “write” their own design statement in glass. “It is a really flexible piece, and we are able to customize its patterning and rhythm like never before,” says Yabu Pushelberg.  There are 10 crystal components available in two different finishes, four metal finishes, and fitted with three junctors. The possibilities of combinations are almost limitless.
