While bespoke lighting manufacturer Dernier & Hamlyn has been around since 1888 and is justifiably proud of its heritage and its craftsmen’s traditional skills, the company is keen to invest in new technology and enhanced services to meet its clients’ needs.
In 2020, Denier & Hamlyn moved to much improved premises that house its manufacturing and project management teams as well as a new design studio. This new facility allows designers and their clients to come to the Surrey site so that they can work directly with Dernier & Hamlyn’s designers, engineers, and artisans to produce the bespoke lighting they want collaboratively making the whole process more efficient.
Fundamental to an effective studio is lighting that is crisp, clear and does not cause glare from screens or other equipment. Having reviewed various options, NVC Lighting’s new DALLAS low glare, linear luminaires were specified and six were installed.
Dernier & Hamlyn’s head of design Mark Harper who heads up the company’s design studio says: “As lighting specialists we obviously appreciate its importance. However, the fittings, we produce are more about aesthetic effect than functionality. We chose NVC Lighting’s they provide an ideal solution to our practical lighting needs and enhance our modern studio environment.”
