Aglo Systems was engaged to customise architectural light fittings for the Canterbury Leagues Club in Sydney as part of an extensive refurbishment programme. Canterbury Leagues Club is one of Sydney’s premier hospitality destinations, and is being refurbished in a staged development process. Aglo has been working with Point of View lighting designers and Altis architects on the concept ideation and fabrication of custom luminaires for the Club.

The Library Chandelier (DPL6) is made from electroplated steel framework that is suspended from the ceiling. Thirty hand cut crystal droppers suspended from black fabric cable are each illuminated by a G9 LED lamp. Getting the correct pattern etched into the crystal droppers was a challenge for the Aglo team.

The DPL1 Banquette Chandelier is a simplistic bent tubelight with 13 of them arranged in a semi-circle around a pole to create an interesting feature. The chandelier was manufactured by mandrel-bending a steel tube at both ends. A custom made spinning was also manufactured to conceal the lamp holder. The feature was finished with an antique dark brass electroplate and fixed to the ceiling with a canopy, which concealed the power cable at one end and was then wire suspended on the other. A single E27 light bulb illuminates each tube section. The challenge lay in getting a clean and neat bend with a consistent tube diameter.

The DWL1 architectural light fitting is a wall light for the lounge area of the Club. This feature consists of three mandrel-bent and welded tubes, polished and then electroplated in a brushed dark brass finish. The laser cut and rolled decorative mesh placed in front of the three E27 LED lamps is a striking feature. Four of these fittings were supplied for the room.
