The brief

As a well-established quality jewellers dedicated to providing excellent and tailored customer service, Wakefields wanted to ensure that all aspects of the physical environment reflect this and add to the customer experience. With existing chunky ceiling cassettes in place, they wanted a sleek and streamline solution that would provide total temperature and climate control but in line with their aesthetic. Wakefields have been established as a family jewellers since 1911, find out more here.

Before - standard ceiling cassette

Ceiling cassettes do a great job of efficiently dispersing air in a larger setting, but they can appear a bit industrial. A solution was required that would allow for the efficient and effective circulation of air around the spacious premises, but without visible mechanical sources. With beams and atmospheric lighting in the ceiling, the air con needed to function highly but without detracting from this.

During - removal of ceiling cassette

Now open for business after Covid restrictions forced closure, the need for minimum disruption and swift, neat installation was paramount. We had to work carefully with attention to detail and protecting the surrounding furniture and luxury goods.

After - invisible air con
