Nestled within the vibrant streets of Guillemard Road, Singapore’s design and lighting aficionados are in for a radiant treat. Sol Luminaire, the acclaimed lighting studio, has unveiled an enthralling new chapter in its journey: a redesigned showroom that promises to redefine the way we perceive and interact with light.
The space has just gone through a remarkable transformation to not only showcase an extensive collection of exquisite luminaries but also the groundbreaking LAB2.1, an avant-garde concept space dedicated to pushing the boundaries of lighting design. As we embark on this luminous journey, we invite you to join us for an exclusive peek into the new Sol Luminaire and LAB2.1 showrooms, where form, function, and creativity converge to illuminate the future of interior design.

Much of the open-concept showroom is inspired by real homes so you can properly see how different luminaires can come together in light layering. Showcasing materials like marble and custom paint coats by MrPCI can create realistic home interiors, and the design possibilities are endless. Your lighting advisors or interior designers will also be able to better demonstrate and show you how the lights in your home will work. Plus, it also lessens the emphasis on individual product booths that can feel too sterile and artificial, and this layout will not overwhelm you with choices.
For those who have homes with balconies and patios, the new Sol Luminaire showroom also has an extended outdoor area to show off some outdoor luminaires. This would definitely be appreciated by the homeowner who wants to see how outdoor lights perform with their own two eyes.
Soon, you’ll be able to see new luminaires like the Boba Pendant, Boba Chain Pendant, Kepler V2, Voli V2, and the Janus Switch by Futurahaus in the showroom too.
Nearby at 399 Guillemard Road, The LAB2.1’s showroom was also transformed into a space embodying a brutalist charm that is still sophisticated and elegant with the use of statement lighting pieces.
Exposed steel frames draw one’s attention to specific areas of the showroom whilst still allowing visitors to see through them to the opposite side. To juxtapose the raw and industrial aesthetic, the space has been furnished with lush and upscale materials like leather couches, allowing the space to feel like a gallery with the luminaires as the art on display.
