Project details

GHD are the market leading manufacturer of hair products and styling equipment. In October 2008 they opened their prestigious new headquarters in Leeds Bridgewater Place.

The brief Liteideas and Litetask received was to turn Carey Jones’s innovative design into reality in the most energy efficient and cost effective way possible.

The centrepiece of the project is a sumptuous exhibition area which has at it heart an internally illuminated glass catwalk. The catwalks white leather seating and walls are highlighted by under seat lighting and illuminated feature bulkheads that, like the catwalk itself, utilise ‘Intelligent white’ LED technology. The catwalk and feature lighting can be independently controlled within a colour temperature range of 3000-6500.

The glamour does not end when you leave the catwalk however with the luxurious feel continuing throughout the salon/training area, reception, offices and board room.

The lighting was supplied and project managed by Mark McDonnell of Liteideas parent company Litetask limited.
