Food and drinks make the perfect foundations for a bar and restaurant atmosphere. Therefore, the interior design and décor of the environment should never be underestimated. Bocca Social desired to create a flawless ambience for its guests, whether they wanted to tuck into a tasty Italian dish or sip on signature, crafty cocktails with friends.
It’s key for every hospitality venue to have high-quality accessories to reflect its concept and offering, and this is exactly what Bocca Social has achieved. The aesthetically pleasing Beckenham-based Italian bar and restaurant boasts an eye-catching floral wall, plush pink furnishings and striking brass vintage lights, which when combined with the stand-out food and drinks, generates a seamless, enhanced experience for patrons.
Lighting was an essential element to set the tone and mood of the establishment. Bocca Social opted for a selection of uniquely handcrafted vintage-style lights from Industville, which work in harmony with the beautiful pastel colour scheme and exposed brick walls to create an industrial haven. “Lighting has the ability to determine whether a customer has a positive experience and how long they decide to spend there – more importantly, determining whether they become a regular patron,” explains Natalia Georgiadou, marketing communications manager for Industville. “The secret to good lighting is having the option of a dimmer. This enables venues to adjust the lighting throughout the day to suit each type of guest and occasion. For example, dimmer lighting in the bar area in the evenings contrast against brighter lights for lunchtime get-togethers.”
With the guidance of the Industville team, the owners selected three signature industrial lights: the Brooklyn Dome 13 Inch Pendant, Orlando Wire Cage 4 Inch Wall Light and Brooklyn Dome 8 Inch Wall Light, all in the vintage brass finish. Lights were placed throughout the restaurant and bar areas and above tables to cast the idyllic amount of illumination for the ultimate dining atmosphere.
Understanding the need for stylish, industrial and affordable lighting, Industville has a large range of lights which are perfect for every interior style going. All products are made from high quality, raw materials and handcrafted to a unique, industrial finish. There’s even the option to craft your own bespoke lighting!
