On the eve of Good Friday 14 April, guests and friends of Sol Luminaire flocked to 50 Craig Road to celebrate the grand opening of our latest lighting gallery space, Galerie 5.
Artisanal pieces inspired by different forces of nature. Makhno Studio's Makivka luminaires draws inspiration from poppy blossoms, The Soucy Shop's porcelain works tells the ebb and flow of time, and lastly Frédéric Saulou's furnishings which incorporates forgotten post-Industrial materials.
Within the walls of the newly-refreshed shophouse, attendees got the chance to view the artisanal luminaires and collectibles in person, from brands like Makhno Studio, llll to The Soucy Shop, and new arrivals such as Frédéric Saulou tables, Makhno Studio art toys and Sticky Glass homeware.
The ground floor was converted into an exhibition space where works of the artists were accompanied by video projections of their creative process. Architects, interior designers and guests gathered together in what felt like a housewarming party, with light canapés and free flow bubbly served alongside.
Nobody could resist taking a quick snap of llll's sculptural luminaires.
Part of the three-storey tour was the sensory space housing luminaires from llll, located at level 2. Guests were drawn by the motion sensor and illusory bodies of artist-designer Sarah Dehandschutter’s lights, which quickly became the room for an insta-worthy selfie.
