LDU coffee shop

illumebydesign was engaged to provide the lighting consultancy, design and supply of all project lighting for the new LDU coffee shop in Dallas TX, USA. To lower the height of the front-of-house space and increase its intimacy we incorporated an undulating sea of custom illumebydesign glass pendant lights. These softly lit coloured glass pendant lights also offer a level of intrigue to the passerby, and add to the venue’s brand identity.

Once installed these pendant lights became regularly photographed by patrons, and have come to form part of the LDU hospitality theme. The lighting, along with other interior elements from this first coffee shop design, were later reinstated in LDU’s second Dallas, University Park venue, helping to establish a recognisable brand.

We love working with local artisans wherever projects take us, and are very grateful to Dallas glass artist Aaron Tate for blowing these illumebydesign Boz light shades as well as the black glass Seed pendants located over the banquette area.
