Bert & May, specialists in tiles, wood, furniture, bathroom fittings and kitchens have made the leap to entire pre-fabricated structures with Bert’s Boxes. The boxes are specified with Factorylux light fittings, including the bedroom lighting.
The environmentally friendly modular living spaces take prefab to a new level with reclaimed timber walls and floors, green roofs and underfloor heating below the handmade encaustic tiles. The boxes are built by Bert & May and designed by architecture and design studio Box 9 Design.
The two bedroom big box features the classic bronze Maria Banjo wall lights with gloss black enamel shades beside the bed, and a central ceiling pendant light with a 360mm industrial light shade in matching gloss black enamel. In keeping with the eco-friendly nature of the box, all the light fittings were equipped with the Eco-Filament pear light bulbs.
The smaller one bedroom box used the same fittings – wall lights and central ceiling pendant – but in white vitreous enamel. In addition to the bedroom lighting, Factorylux bathroom and outdoor lighting was specified for the boxes.
The boxes hit the sweet spot of great design – they are highly original while being effortless and uncontrived. Congratulations to Box 9 for the design work and Bert & May for the build.
