You dream it and we will build it
People are at the heart of everything we do. We make it a priority to understand our customer’s needs and requirements and have developed a diverse portfolio of innovative products, designed to shape any space into the perfect environment which to live and work. Whatever they need, our portfolio offers the solution. But with some projects being unique, they sometimes require a customised solution. And this product can be designed to order with our Bespoke Team in our own innovation lab. From idea to engineering, they will supply with speed and a deep understanding of a customer’s needs and requirements. You dream it and they will build it.
Our most important source
Detailed discussions throughout the life of the project. To ensure long-term quality management, you keep the same contact persons throughout the entire project.
Images and sketches usually say more than a thousand words. They serve to illustrate complex issues as a basis for ongoing discussions.
The specialists in our construction department are involved in the project at an early stage. Obvious challenges / problems can be pinpointed in good time.
Technologically relevant concepts do not come out of thin air. Professional evaluations are carried out in our laboratories at an early stage.
Manufacture and realisation
Whether we are talking about a sample product or a product that will ultimately be applied – our entire know-how, plus the experience gathered from working on other projects, can be incorporated into your project.
«Bespoke projects serve to establish Regent’s competences in pilot projects and with key customers and architects, and enable complete package offers to be made for large-scale projects. Given that project business is developed very close to the market, the work we do in the way of technical and design support is a substantial contribution to Regent’s innovation rate.»

A heavenly solution
The Greek gods would have been delighted with the Bespoke Asklepios luminaire. As on a pleasantly overcast day, light seeps gently through the fine mesh ceiling structure, resulting in a diffuse but evident spread of light throughout the space that is also suitable for office environments.
But what was actually behind the design of the new luminaires for the striking Asklepios building on the Novartis campus? It all began with the clear vision of the architects Herzog & de Meuron. Their idea was not only to create a custom luminaire, but to develop this vision as part of the overall project. The Bespoke team at Regent seized upon the architects’ creative idea and made it their goal to deliver an appropriate solution. Collaborating closely with the architects, the Bespoke team succeeded in developing a luminaire that would meet the structural requirements of the lighting so that the expectations and requirements laid down by the architects and the client were fulfilled to an optimum.
The specifications were particularly stringent, given that the luminaires needed to integrate perfectly with the fine mesh ceiling structure. As a result, the luminaire not only blends in perfectly with the architectural concept for the ceiling, but also features a filigree grid pattern that picks up on the design of the ceiling structure. The “sky” thus remains in line with the open space design of the building. And still the lighting is able to meet the wide range of requirements inherent to the highly communicative spaces. This is due to the fact that, without it even being visible, there are different versions of the luminaire in application.
By generating an open-air effect, the Bespoke luminaire plays its part in supporting communication between staff in every corner of the building. Even in the bar area, which is accessible to the public. Asklepios, the Greek god of healing, would definitely have given full points for this project.
