As founder and Creative director, Chris Turner explains “We are looking forward to returning to Maison et Objet, it is a vibrant show that is at the heart of decorative interior design. We have established some renowned global contacts and firm friends amongst our clients who regularly visit our exhibition. Our profile has grown immeasurably in France and beyond as a result of exhibiting. And It is very exciting for us to be returning IMM Cologne and to consolidate CTO presence in Germany. We are regular visitors to the show and hold it in high regard. Both shows are highlights of the international trade fair calendar and influential markers of design trends.”
CTO Lighting has founded its reputation on a combination of high quality craftsmanship and materials. Never faltering in its pursuit of design excellence, CTO Lighting is frequently used by architects and interior designers in a vast range of projects from 5 Star hotels to private residential interiors, always adding a layer of depth and originality where they are installed. All CTO Lighting is made at its factory in the UK.
CTO Lighting will be showcasing more than twenty designs from their latest collections in a luxury setting and unveiling five brand new collections for the first time.
The inspiration for this piece has been taken from the home of CTO Lighting - “Cloudesley “, the street name where it resides in Georgian opulence. The name is self explanatory, and it describes the cloud like formations of its namesake. Reflecting an era of grandiosity, the repetitive oval forms of the glass when illuminated bring about a heavenly effect. Each opal glass shade arranged with an almost poetic rhythm. It is a signature CTO statement chandelier.
CLOUDESLEY CHANDELIERExperimenting and revisiting spherical and elliptic cloud like forms of traditional glass shades has resulted in a statement piece with soft curves where texture and light bring a modern approach to a classic arrangement. Cloudesley revisits classical lines and brings them to modern and sophisticated interiors of today effortlessly. The Cloudesley chandelier is offered in three sizes to suit any interiors. From the opulence of the grand entrance hall to the perfect lighting for the dining room table or the intimacy of the dimmed bedroom or hallway light.
Petra Pendant Light
Marveling at the myriad of glass masters from Murano where this remarkable material has been produced for centuries with artisan skills, and exploring both the duality between the fragility and powerful organic matter of glass, we designed Petra; a pendant light that perfectly combines the delicacy and the strength of our natural world.
PETRA PENDANT LIGHTReflecting on the organic quality of this natural element, we created a soft meteoric core of molten glass and juxtaposed it with a second outer layer of thick curvaceous pebble-like shade in a tinted neutral pigment which creates a depth of light and form. The combination produces a layered glass on glass pendant where the light is deflected creating a captivating impression, where the depth of colour and light brings an atmosphere of sophisticated luxury to the interior.
Petra pendant light can also be customised with either matt opal or a hand shaped glass tinted inner shade and is held in place by either bronze or satin brass drop rods, adding an exquisite finish to this unique light. These refined translucent glass pendants can either be used as a singular statement light or in multiples to create a delicate display of lights that echo the rhythmic pattern evocative of pebbles on the beach.
Skye Pendant Light
From the ethereal landscapes of the isle of Skye to the nuances of shifting shores, we are transported to a world of natural beauty with the launch of the new Skye pendant light collection.
SKYE PENDANT LIGHTA new collection where our glass masters create a soft milky white opal glass sphere, resembling the misty Highland air, both delicate and graphically strong, resulting in a pendant light that crowns the space with a strong silhouette and atmospheric warm light. The shades in Skye have been carefully thought to combine two levels of texture for this unique pendant light. An opal to clear sfumato glass finish, where the clarity of the glass at the base seems to turn gravity on its head, accentuating the white opaque part on top of an almost invisible bottom and held by a finely satin brass or bronze rod at the top.
Particularly stunning when used in multiple combinations to give depth to a composition of scale and majestic proportions and to create an ombré of milky finish, each one slightly different than the other, creates a cloud like effect and a dynamic interplay of form.
Tinto Pendant Light
Inspired by natures gentle shapes of the Tinto Hill in Scotland and brought to life by the hands of our very own craftsmen using metal spinning techniques to lightly control the inclination of the shallow cone, transforming raw brass into this simple and yet very elegant pendant light.
TINTO PENDANT LIGHTChosen for its ability to cast light downward in a dramatic way, the shallow conic shade of Tinto Pendant is fit with a warm ambient LED light that brings drama in scale with minimal lines over the objects.
Delicately finished in satin brass or bronze using the CTO signature technique gives a luxurious feeling to this light, and the silk braided flex cable lends buoyancy and lightness to the final composition that can be also finished with satin brass or bronze drop rods. Tinto pendant lights can be used either singly as a centrepiece or in multiples exuding subtle luxury and refinement. A statement light that can bring confidence to any interior.
