wish list

The four star Skylon Hotel is a spacious and elegantly designed hotel conveniently located close to Dublin airport and the city centre.

 A major feature of the Skylon Hotel is the Skylon Bar & Grill, Dublin's newest bar. The elegant and contemporary furniture and decor, paired with the soft industrial, bespoke lighting from Chantelle, made the interior a winning combination.

The challenge

Audrey Gaffney Associates were tasked with renovating the hotel, in particular the Skylon Bar & Grill which was the heart of the hotel. They wanted to create a dining area which would offer guests a memorable experience,  using the lighting to create the perfect ambience and mood for this. Project manager Orla McAdam chose to work with us here at Chantelle Lighting as they needed reliable suppliers to ensure the products met the hotels strict dreadlines

Orla McAdam said: "It had been over 25 years since the bar had a full make-over so it was quite dated. We were also challenged by the bar being on a split level which limited where the seating could go."

The solution

Orla and her team developed a classic concept for the new Bar & Grill, using slightly masculine features such as dark wooden paneled walls and deep buttoned bar seating. Above the booths sit our ribbed glass pendants, which are simple enough to catch the eye, yet don't take away from the detailed interior. Our hugely popular steel ring pendants hang at the centre of the Bar & Grill spanning nearly two meters across and featuring 44 LED bulbs. The deep, rich colour palette of the bar paired with the multi globe pendants gives the bar a warm, inviting environment for guests to relax.

Orla added: "We worked with Chantelle to select a number of table lamps, pendants, wall lights and spotlights to complement the furnishings we were using.

"The use of antique brass and satin brass on the different fittings helped to create a really warm feel to the venue whilst the industrial ring feature with 44 LED lamps has created a talking point for customers."

The Result

The team at Audrey Gaffney Associates have created a bar that is integral to the hotel yet stand alone for local residents. It has increased revenue as well as reduced staffing levels due to the improved space layout and flexible seating arrangements.

Chantelle Lighting's managing director Anthony Holly said: "It's great to see the finished product at the Skylon Hotel. It's always exciting for us to see how our bespoke products in-situ; the Skylon Bar & Grill looks fantastic."
