Aglo Systems custom designed four different types of feature lights for a new luxury apartment complex in South Yarra, VIC.

A newly built 20-level apartment complex located on St. Kilda Road, South Yarra, the Fawkner offers 253 luxury hotel-inspired apartments. Aglo Systems worked with Vast Electrical Services, Icon Builders and K.P.D.O Architects to deliver the lighting for the project.

Aglo’s Custom Design and Manufacturing team developed four different types of pendant feature lights to be installed throughout the high-rise building. The first pendant is installed in the reception area. Two versions of a cubed style pendant were designed with brushed light brass and polished nickel finishes. Manufacturing these pendants required metal folding, welding, polishing and electroplating. The brushed brass cube pendant version is located above the reception desk and the polished nickel pendant is on the opposite side, in the residents’ meeting room.

For the residents’ meeting room, Aglo’s Custom Design team additionally developed a large branch-shaped pendant for installation above the meeting table. Milled and cast metal techniques were used during the manufacture of this pendant, which also features glass blown shades.

The fourth architectural light feature, a chandelier, was designed for the wine room. This chandelier is installed over the centre of the dining table and incorporates three layers of moulded glass tubes in orange, clear and frosted colouring. Manufacturing techniques used for the chandelier included metal rolling, folding, welding and polishing for the frame of the chandelier, and moulding and sandblasting for the glass components.

Aglo’s in-house professionals completed the entire design and engineering work, and also assisted with the onsite installation.

Aglo Systems was also engaged to supply the general lighting for this project.
