The opening of the new Scandic Hotel ”Downtown Camper” this week, with lighting designed by Frandsen Project, calls for recognition of all the efforts made to give you a special experience when travelling. Lighting plays a large part in creating an atmosphere, as Frandsen Project knows very well.
The minute you set down your suitcase upon entering a hotel lobby, all of your senses register atmosphere and ambience. Warm or hot? Cosy or not? A lot of this has to do with how the lighting looks and works.
At Frandsen Project, 90% of their business is lighting specifically designed for hotels in collaboration with contractors. For Director Thomas Hansen at Frandsen Project, the starting point is always the same: ”The design should result in the best possible atmosphere and be complementary to the additional design. This requires a design process founded on the needs of the users, and an understanding of the local building regulations.”
He explains that Frandsen Project has developed an extensive and unique collaborative network within the hotel industry over the past 20 years.
”This makes it possible to offer a very comprehensive development process to our clients, and we feel very fortunate that so many international design studios use us as partners in their hotel projects”
Light up my room
When working with Frandsen Project you will experience that their commitment is based on creating quality, not quantity. This results in the ability to play with light and shadow. Mr Hansen and his team are very attentive to this matter, especially when working with larger rooms or areas:
”Big rooms can be challenging when creating the right atmosphere, in order for the guest to feel comfortable at all times of the day. We always offer our opinion on what would be a good solution, and we really appreciate working with architects and interior designers in this process.”
He finishes by saying, ”Aesthetics, as the final result of the design process, is everything – even if it means extra adjustments in our design. The user should experience our products as an integrated part of the whole room, and it should be easy to use.”
