Innermost & IM Design Concepts have released a collection of lifestyle photography showcasing Innermost’s signature lighting fixtures within American residential environments. Explore the full collection of images.
The first series is set at the residence of IM Design Concepts’ partner, Christoph Oberli and the house serves as the headquarter of the Innermost US distributor. Dubbed the ‘Innermost House’, Chris volunteered the spacefor this experimental display of unique products from the London-based design brand. With its open-plan split levels and full glass walls, this ‘mid-century modern’ house makes for an interesting architectural backdrop to the stunning Innermost pendants.
As the first ever installation of Membrane in the USA, the glass pendant chandelier makes for an incredible feature in the bright conservatory. The smoky hand-blown form changes along with the light in the glass-walled room, set deep within the forest.
‘Beads’, in a Gunmetal finish, transforms the dining room, throwing shadows across the space and bringing interest and excitement as the centerpiece.
As permanent fixtures, a composition of three large yellow Stupa are the unique focal point of the formal dining area, meanwhile the red Latitude spotlights successfully create a playful atmosphere in the breakfast room. Matrioshka is used to beautiful effect in the bright main entrance-hall and a collection of colored Snowdrops bring a visual treat to the sunroom.
Working beautifully alongside the effortless interior style of this 1977 house, the selected lighting fixtures fit perfectly into this American home. The considered use of the pendants within the interior truly echo the brand’s ethos of beautiful, thoughtful and innovative products designed for social spaces.
The second series was shot at the nearby Chan-Galli house, a 1930s stone cottage. After an extension in 1970, and refurbishment in 2015 by the present owner and interior designer, Lincoln Chan, the house has been decorated to the highest specification.
As a signature feature of the photo shoot, the Buckle 70 was used as the focal point in the lounge of the original stone cottage; the delicate lighting sculpture making for a dramatic juxtaposition, and reflecting the heavy stone walls. In the kitchen, Matrioshka in blue was used to hang low over the minimal dining area. In the second selection, Circus pendants by Corina Warm were installed, notably the Circus 36 dome in white for the counter and the Circus 56 large pendant for the casual dining area.
As curators, industry experts and mavericks, Innermost have been working with designers from all corners of the globe to create their beautifully unique products, since 1999. They repurpose conventional approaches and use materials and processes in a daringly unique way. These photographs reflect the innovation and quality of their lighting range, which works beautifully within the home.
“We have many installations in restaurants, hotels and public areas with great photography on hand but wanted to acquire a collection of images that show our lighting in a residential environment”, says Innermost Co-founder and CEO, Steve Jones, “I think we hit the marks with those examples”.
