Featured in The Times: The Fromagerie Cabinet

The Fromagerie Cabinet

Interiors Editor for The Times, Katrina Burroughs, graciously included LANSERRING’s design for a bespoke fromagerie cabinet in her recent article covering high end interiors trends.

We were delighted to be consulted about our observations of our market and very proud to share this design. Speaking to The Times, LANSERRING’s Alex Beaugeard explained “We were asked by a London client to explore the perfect conditions for maturing cheese prior to consumption.”

The fromagerie cabinet is a stone-clad environment, which keeps the contents a few degrees cooler than room temperature due to the thermal mass of stone. We lined the enclosure with tiles of Himalayan rock salt because it helps to remove moisture from the environment thus accelerating the development of the flavours and textures in the cheese. Backlighting filters through the rock salt, creating a soft pink glow.

Refined Larder Concept’s

Homes & Gardens journalist Linda Clayton has kindly acknowledged the merits of LANSERRING’s Pickling Cabinet, describing it as an exquisite piece of living room furniture inspired by larder designs. In her recent article, Clayton appreciates the seamless integration of culinary storage and interior design, highlighting our dedication to crafting functional art objects.

The Pickling Cabinet, meticulously handcrafted using a combination of American walnut, patinated brass, and marble, stands as a testament to our commitment to creating exceptional pieces. Its sleek, slatted sliding screens offer glimpses into the illuminated internal spaces, captivating observers with its understated elegance and meticulous attention to detail.

Clayton specifically admires the small shelves incorporated within the cabinet, which not only serve as practical storage spaces but also present captivating platforms for each pickling jar. This unique design element adds a touch of sophistication and ensures that the cabinet showcases its contents as individual works of art.


Homes & Gardens Coverage  

May 16th, 2023

We at LANSERRING are delighted to announce that our Ladbroke Grove Townhouse project has garnered recognition with not one, but two features in Homes & Gardens magazine. The first article, penned by Linda Clayton and titled “Invisible kitchen ideas – 8 reasons why this subtle trend is taking over,” delves into the contemporary design movement of incorporating invisible kitchens into living spaces. This trend aims to seamlessly blend the kitchen into the overall aesthetic by concealing handles, appliances, storage, and even cooking areas.

The article by Linda Clayton explores the growing popularity of invisible kitchens and presents eight compelling reasons why this trend is making waves in the design world. By creating a harmonious integration between the kitchen and the living space, homeowners can enjoy a cohesive and uncluttered environment. The concealed elements contribute to a sleek and minimalist look, fostering a sense of openness and serenity. With the kitchen discreetly tucked away, the focus shifts to the surrounding decor and furnishings, allowing them to shine.

In addition to Linda Clayton’s feature, Jennifer Ebert contributes an article titled “Kitchen storage trends – 7 statement looks and innovations that will change kitchen design forever.” This article emphasizes the impact of handle-free kitchens in achieving a minimalist aesthetic. By eliminating visible handles, the kitchen maintains a clean and streamlined appearance. This design choice not only enhances the overall visual appeal but also promotes functionality and ease of use.

Both articles commend the Ladbroke Grove Townhouse project for its innovative incorporation of invisible kitchens and handle-free designs. At LANSERRING, we take pride in our commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining kitchen spaces. Our goal is to create environments that seamlessly blend form and function, enabling homeowners to enjoy living spaces that are both aesthetically pleasing and practical. We are grateful for the recognition from Homes & Gardens and will continue to innovate  in the world of kitchen design.

Blandford House  

October 19th, 2022

Our Blandford House project is an exemplary study in crafted contemporary style. Against a backdrop of opulent classical architectural detail, we created a bespoke kitchen with a clean finish. A layered natural material palette incorporates enticing textures and dynamic shading.

For the splashbacks at the sides of the space and the central kitchen island, we used two tones of leathered marble to emphasise a sense of depth and volume in the space. At our workshop, we hand-stained oak for the joinery to reach a rich treacle shade, and to compliment it we finished the brass with a soft brushed effect.

The space itself featured opulent classical cornicing, with which we needed to craft a relationship. While the joinery of the hob area meets the cornicing – offering a sense of permanence and intentionality – we chose to give the secondary elevation the look of having been placed. In doing so, we sought to create a sense of lightness to the installation and integration with the architectural features of the home.

In response to our client’s love of symmetry, we played with counterbalance and format with the joinery. The secondary elevation is bookended by full height cabinets, framed with brushed brass, but the wine cabinet at the left is presented in glass while the ingredient store uses veneer. The effect is one of lite symmetry.

The clients we worked with on this project were looking to craft their dream home and were long standing admirers of LANSERRING design. It was a delight to contribute to their elevated new lifestyle and we are immensely proud of what we created together.

Holly Park Hall  

October 18th, 2022

In a story of restoration and new life, we present our design for Holly Park Hall. 

At the centre of this grand heritage space we have placed an altar-like Breccia Capraia marble island. Kitchen storage and appliances have been concealed behind reintroduced traditional panelling. Meanwhile, arched beams have been introduced to an area of dropped ceiling height, making sense of imbalance.

To the side of the room is an insulated pantry. Sliding steel and glass doors frame tantalising fresh produce on elegantly backlit shelving. Marble splashbacks against the outside walls conduct away heat, keeping ingredients cool naturally.

The room is divided by a row of original archways, beyond which lies a comfortable living area. A full entertainment suite is concealed in the continued traditional panelling. As a whole, the space feels like something between a ballroom and a chapel.

Cadence in Collaboration with Steinway & Sons UK for London Craft Week  

May 11th, 2022

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new collaboration – Cadence – with revered piano makers Steinway & Sons.

It was a pleasure to discover our shared heritage in European crafting traditions which, like LANSERRING, Steinway has brought into a new era for their field. As design and craftsmanship fanatics, our collaboration represents a meeting of minds to create a unique space and experience.

Cadence is at the lower ground level of a classic Victorian terraced house with a south facing garden. At the southeast corner of the LANSERRING-designed space stands the Steinway ‘Spirio’: the world’s finest high-resolution player piano. Using cutting-edge actuator technology, the Steinway ‘Spirio’ will play itself in an exact recreation of a grand master performance, creating an unadulterated listening experience of live piano music.

Behind this peerless piano is a curved wall which reflects its rich tonal sound outwards into the room. A bespoke designed sound-dispersing chandelier made from steam bent veneer hangs above. Its abstract curving leaf design is inspired by concert hall design of international quality. There are no speakers; the aural experience from every zone has been planned and augmented with LANSERRING design and craftsmanship.

The space itself is encircled by a band of concrete which wraps around the upper half of the walls. At a second depth, the lower half of the walls are clad in natural quartzite. Steel fins hold the walls and ceiling in place while at the same time creating shafts for natural light to pour down the walls. In the bays created by the fins, timber shelves sit proud of the wall, allowing the light to wash uninterrupted down the concrete face. The shelves are populated by artwork, sculptures, and musical memorabilia. Cabinets fitted in the bays next to the seating area feature metal and glass doors in classic LANSERRING vernacular, and the doors open on piano hinges.

At the southwest corner of the room is an elegant LANSERRING kitchen. Raised off the floor by brass legs in a unique faceted finish, the cabinetry manages to feel light and airy. Their fronts are detailed with flowing, organic lines which, on closer inspection, are found to be grooves that flow gracefully across the wood and metalwork. The design is continued on the kitchen island in front, referencing the flow of melody. On the worktop, the gas burners have been sunk into the quartzite, maximising the visual continuity of the crystalline structure. Here we see LANSERRING’s mastercraftmanship skill and attention to detail at work: this elegant, low impact design can only be achieved with an absolute mastery of stonework.

The entire experience has been designed to transform from day to night. The music playing on the Steinway will progress from light, relaxed daytime music to deeper atmospheric music for the evening. As the inhabitants of the space embrace the lower light and drinks party atmosphere, LANSERRING design will quietly adapt. Where during the day, sunlight would pour down the lightwells, our lighting plan in the evening uses up lights in the bottom of the bays between the fins for low-lit elegance.

At the top of the space, a walled winter garden has been sunk to ground level. In the evening, the inhabitants of the space can migrate here and enjoy the fire pit and the percussion of crackling embers with ‘Spirio’ music still flowing from indoors.

As a bespoke kitchen designer, LANSERRING is often asked to rise to exacting and unique briefs. Cadence is a space for a music lover and frequent host looking to revel in and share their passion for music. For LANSERRING, rising to a brief such as this is seizing the opportunity of bespoke design to augment the client’s lifestyle and transform their experience of their home.

The Power of Light  

November 22nd, 2021

LANSERRING connects innovative design with excellence in craftsmanship.

Our network of suppliers and specialists, colleagues and collaborators is paramount. As masters of our own crafts within custom joinery and furniture, we hold a deep respect for other craftspeople and artisans. Where our specialisms interact, a beautiful opportunity for collaboration is revealed.

Our celebrated installation at the LANSERRING New York Gallery created a challenging set of demands on its lighting system. We knew there was only one lighting design team who could match the subtlety and finesse of our furniture: Xavio Design.

The team at Xavio created a finely calibrated bespoke lighting system that compliments and elevates our own installation. We chatted to Xavio’s Design Director, Rebecca Richards to hear about her experiences working with LANSERRING and about the design she and her team created for us …

Please would you introduce Xavio Design – who are you and what do you do?
Xavio Design is a dedicated super-prime lighting design consultancy. We are passionate about light and see lighting design as an art and a science. Working on a wide range of ultra-exclusive properties in the residential and hospitality sectors, we continually strive to raise the bar of lighting design and to enhance our projects with inspiration, expertise and superior product sourcing. We work with clients for whom perfection is key, and we take enormous pride in delivering flawless outcomes every time.


For Xavio, what is the role of lighting in an interior space?
Light is the paintbrush with which we shape what we see. A floodlit space loses all dimension, so a considered lighting design is crucial for adding depth and soul into any interior. At Xavio we take great care in designing with both light and shadow, and in a way that minimises any attention being drawn away from the luxurious interior. By retaining a mystique as to how that is achieved, the soul of an interior can truly resonate.


What can lighting do for a kitchen? A dressing room?
Lighting can make or break your experience of any room, and in kitchens and dressing rooms it has to work on many different levels. Colour rendering is key – both for appetising catering, and for true colour tones and fabrics in a wardrobe. Scene setting is also critical to ensure a seamless shift as activities change from cooking to hosting an evening soirée, or from feeling energised for the day ahead to relaxing and winding down as day moves to night.


Please would you describe your lighting design for the LANSERRING New York Gallery?
LANSERRING commissioned Xavio to replicate the brand’s ethos and atmospheric craftsmanship of joinery into the wider space of the gallery. We worked closely within their brief to transpose the warm and luxurious feel of their joinery into an holistic design. Using concealed lighting within joinery elements and spotlight tracks suspended from the exposed industrial ceiling, we were able to create a synergy which ties together the industrial setting with these elegant light fixtures. The harmony of joinery and light working together helps to create this holistic space, one that respects the heritage and passion for excellence in craft and design so synonymous with the LANSERRING brand.


What impact does it have on the experience of the space?
The result is a home experience within an industrial showroom. Prospective clients can walk off the Manhattan street into an authentic NYC building where the atmosphere exudes quality and exclusivity. This is brought forward by LANSERRING’S design and craftmanship, their traditional artisanal techniques and respect of fine natural materials. The exposed ducting and high ceilings reinforce that authenticity, creating a perfect combination of home and industrial, a beautiful canvas for the play of light and shadow.


How does it work at different stages of natural light throughout the day and the seasons?
The gallery makes use of mostly natural light in the kitchen area, allowing that natural light to flood in and bring to life the fine woodgrain and stone detailing, immersing a prospective client in how they would experience their kitchen joinery at home. In contrast to this, the dressing room area has no natural light, making it feel cosy and private. The lighting in both areas has been designed to work harmoniously with the time of day or season. With added flexibility, the user can also enhance the space on a gloomy day by increasing the lighting levels, or set the perfect mood for an evening party or exclusive event.


How did you find working in collaboration with the LANSERRING team?
The team at LANSERRING is complemented by specialist designers, master craftspeople, project managers and technicians. They are critical thinkers, and at Xavio we never like to propose an effect that isn’t possible or is compromised in real life. This made for a strong working partnership and it was an honour to be given the opportunity to work alongside them on their first US Kitchen Gallery.


Did you encounter any particular challenges on the project?
One of the most important challenges to overcome was bringing the exquisite design experience of LANSERRING to the US market using a completely different lighting toolkit. Bringing our depth of lighting knowledge into a new market and making sure it was integrated effectively via a local team with different regulations and standards required methodical communication. Through careful coordination we have together created a showroom that emphatically embodies the established LANSERRING experience with that local NYC flavour.


What aspect of the lighting design are you most proud of?
We can’t possibly separate the lighting design from that of the fine cabinetry, so my favourite aspect has to be the Pickling Cabinet. The hand-oiled slatted oak panel mimics Manhattan’s soaring towers, thrown into silhouette by the warm vertical lighting and allowing glimpses of what lies within. Concealing light sources within these fine details and against some unforgiving surfaces such as solid marble is always difficult, so it’s always a relief to see it successfully come together.


If the New York Gallery were your own kitchen, which spot would you be in on a Sunday morning?
Having been out for a morning stroll to collect some of New York City’s finest bagels and coffee, it would be time to enjoy it relaxing in the kitchen. The natural light would be shining through, the sounds of the city a reminder of the world outside. I would be looking forward to welcoming a small group of friends for a lunch which would be laid out across the island, glowing under the linear pendant light.
