18 Jan WANDSWORTH CREATE A BESPOKE RANGE FOR GASHOLDERS
Wandsworth Electrical is delighted to announce that they have created and manufactured a bespoke collection of electrical accessories for the most anticipated London development; Gasholders, Kings Cross, which is due for completion in Spring 2017.
The redevelopment of the three gasholders in Kings Cross into 145 premium apartments by the Kings Cross Central Limited Partnership is one of the largest and most exciting regeneration projects in London.
Assigned with designing the interiors of the apartments within these iconic structures is Jonathan Tuckey Design who chose Wandsworth as its sole electrical accessories partner for its 100 years’ experience, technical artistry and capability to design and create bespoke electrical accessories especially for Gasholders.
The design concept for the Gasholders apartments is to create ‘industrial refinement’, striking the perfect balance between subtlety and modern elegance. To create interiors with a true sense of industrial refinement, Jonathan Tuckey Design draws inspiration from the gasholders’ unique architecture and heritage by using warm woods, natural stone and contrasting metals. To complement and enhance the design vision, Wandsworth Electrical have created an array of unique and bespoke plate combinations with a variety of finishes for each of the rooms within the apartments.
For the customized kitchens, two bespoke plates have been designed, one of which bends around a pillar to allow for smooth continuation of the pillar design and mirrors the design of the control panel on the other side. The plates provide three sockets plus a toggle and dimmer switch and come in matt black, helping to provide a strong contrast to the brass and stainless steel worktops.
To match the electrical accessories to the bespoke brass door furniture, Wandsworth Electrical developed a tumbled brass finish that elegantly sits alongside the brass door furniture.
The bespoke light switch design has three toggles and one dimmer with a black ring around one of the toggles to inform residents that this one controls the blinds. The matt white plates blend in beautifully with the white rooms, and just have one unique simple stand out feature: a brass ring, to indicate the blind control.
