Brasserie Blanc
Milton Keynes

Brasserie Blanc is a chain of restaurants owned by Raymond Blanc, delivering authentic French menus.

The challenge

Award-winning design agency Blacksheep had been working with Brasserie Blanc to refurbish a number of their existing sites, each with an individual look tailored to their location.

Blacksheep contacted Chantelle Lighting to manufacture some bespoke light fittings for the refurbishment project they were working on at Brasserie Blanc in Milton Keynes.

They wanted to create a contemporary yet cosy feel, contrasting the light flooding in from the large windows with darker fixtures and fittings.

Having worked in collaboration previously, Blacksheep knew that our team of bespoke lighting experts at Chantelle Lighting would be able to help them produce something special to create a feature at the Milton Keynes site.

 The solution

After learning more about the project, our design team proposed the manufacture of two large retro inspired pendant lights which would help to illuminate the whole venue and complement the dark fabric used in seating areas.

Chantelle’s team of craftsmen and women manufactured the multiple arms on the pendants using brass, finishing off each fitting with 24 circular glass globes and LED candles.

Weighing 30KG and with a width of 1350mm and a height of 1600, each pendant was a huge task to manufacture, but the result was outstanding.

 The result

Now in place at Brasserie Blanc in Milton Keynes, the two retro inspired pendant lights have long been a talking point for customers and the design became one of the most popular on the Chantelle Lighting website.
