Just minutes away from Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, the St Pauls House Hotel opened earlier in the year and was inspired by husband and wife team Sharon and Adrian Harvey’s love for design and hospitality. The Astro Joel Wall and Table lights in cream were chosen for the hotel bedrooms because of their classic design with subtle contemporary twists in form as well as a high quality finish.The LED-compatible Joel range features table lamps, wall lights, floor lamps and pendants. There is also a larger version – Joel Grande. Finish options for the integral shade are polished chrome, black, cream and matt gold.
St Pauls House was conceived with the casual yet contemporary buzz of Shoreditch, London, in mind. By coincidence, Shoreditch is home to the celebrated new Courthouse Hotel, where Joel has also been specified.Design director and Astro co-founder James Bassant comments on the design;
“The inspiration for the new Joel came from a light I designed for Astro when the company launched 20 years ago. At the time it was unashamedly retro, but the current collection has subtle details in form and finish which bring it right up to date, while retaining unmistakable references to the post-war classics which inspired it.”
