Bespoke brass lighting for Edinburgh’s newest brasserie

Working to a Martin Brudnizki Design Studio design, we produced a stunning two-tier chandelier almost 1.5 m across that forms a focal point in Brasserie Prince by Alain Roux.

The bar and brasserie at The Balmoral – a Rocco Forte hotel in Edinburgh – signifies an alliance between the Forte family and legendary father and son chefs Michel and Alain Roux. Opened in June 2018 the menu offers classic French dishes made with the finest Scottish ingredients.

The chandelier was handmade in Dernier & Hamlyn’s London factory. It is finished in antique brass and fitted with ribbed, curved, translucent panels.
