Existing customers Benchmark Designs had big plans to give the communal areas of the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds an overhaul, including the café and seating area. The team at Benchmark Designs were keen to use the Aston Lantern for their pendant lights in one of their up coming projects, having seen the quality of our glass pendants at 100% design, and we were thrilled to work with them on such a project.
To light the area over the counter within the main restaurant, Benchmark Design specified Fritz Fryer Lighting's clear glass Hereford pendant lights and in the main seating area, the Aston Lanterns with clear glass tops and ribbed glass bottom sections offer the perfect level of light. All with Polished Brass metal work and burgundy flex to keep the luxurious, royal theme present. The beautiful setting of the café makes for an 'old meets new' experience with the contemporary twist added by our pendant lights making the perfect match. The simplicity of the clear glass in the Hereford pendant lights over the bar area allows the focus to remain on the delicious food on offer, whilst the curve in the seating area is perfectly complimented by the tubular design of the Aston Lantern pendant lights.
So if you are in the area, pop along to this fabulous museum not just to look at the glorious relics of history but also for your chance to eat your sandwiches under our Aston Lantern pendant lights. You know you've had a good day out when you've learnt all there is to know about arms and armouries, but in a beautiful and well lit space.
