High prices and a Brexit-sized drop in the market might have seen the higher flats at London’s Centrepoint taken off the market, but thankfully lighting design consultancy Nulty has been busy at lower levels. The firm has been working with Gordon Young Architects and hospitality group Rhubarb on its all-day restaurant VIVI, channelling the building’s 1960s design. Apart from Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt’s central chandelier, made from layers of custom-coloured plexiglass, the lighting is understated and concealed, generating a smoky mood and avoiding reflections that might occur across its enormous glazed facade.
