Project/Product Description

Bert Frank, the premium British lighting brand based in London and Birmingham, has expanded their renowned Beran range with the new Beran Drop Chandelier 3.

Designed and manufactured from its flagship production base in Birmingham, UK, Beran merges traditional raw materials like brass and alabaster with modern engineering techniques, resulting in a harmonious product that exudes sophistication, grace and durability.

The Drop Chandelier combines three large alabaster stone diffusers in a dynamic, linear formation for show-stopping impact that will leave a lasting impression. The unique veining of each stone diffuser is particularly noticeable in this formation, highlighting the inherent beauty in the natural material.

The 2023 Beran range expansion marks an exciting new era for Bert Frank and its overaching collection of timeless lighting designs. Beran seamlessly integrates functionality, style and quality into contemporary lighting pieces that are suitable for most elevated commercial and residential spaces.

The Beren Drop Chandlier is available to purchase form October 2023 – prices starting from £4,995 due to the finishes chosen.

Materials Used

Known for it’s refined, circular form and trademark brushed brass fixtures, the Beran Drop Chandelier is made using coveted white alabaster from the pristine quarries of Aragón, Northern Spain. The carefully formed light diffusers exemplify the delicate balance between luxury and modernity, one of the key characteristics the Art Deco movement is revered for.

Alabaster has a wonderful softness, while being surprisingly robust, and the natural creamy white marbling creates a very gentle light that is calming and welcoming – with it being used for the Beran Drop Chandelier not only adds a touch of opulence but also showcases the natural beauty of the fine-grained stone – key details that can be focused and admired within the chandelier.

The metalwork of the Beran Drop Chandlier is available in four standard finishes: Brushed Brass, Antique Brass, Dark Bronze, Satin Nickel.


All products are manufactured to order in Birmingham, the manufacturing capital of England, known as the ‘workshop of the world’. The city has a rich industry of heritage and history of engineering excellence, offering serval advantages for sustainability. With locally produced products, the required transportation is reduced, leading to lower carbon emissions.

Bert Frank also consider their use of materials across all of their business, from sourcing to delivery. Having never subscribed to a throwaway culture, manufacturing all its products to order in the UK and using natural materials that are recycled and reproposed.

Issues Faced

Alabaster is a beautiful, fine-grained stone, however it is also prone to breakage and deterioration if handled or stored improperly, prone to scratches and bruising – therefore it must be cared for in the correct manner.

Additional Comments

Michael Evesque, Managing Director at Bert Frank, said: “Following the Beran Wall Light’s increased popularity and growth in consumer demand in our key markets around the world, we are thrilled to announce this new chapter for one of our best-selling ranges. Prior to this launch, Beran only existed as a wall sconce, but now we have truly tapped into the potential of the range to create a family of elegant lighting products that embody beauty, timelessness and quality.”
