I had the following challenge: Mounting a heavy industrial lamp on a plaster ceiling. An additional problem was that there were two connections, both of which were too far away. I didn't feel like having cover plates and strips on the ceiling. I wanted a neat finish with a nice plate. But I needed two records to get rid of it all. That's why I chose to mount oval plates. That makes it a bit more playful.

How did you proceed?

First attached two slats (at right angles). I attached these firmly to the ceiling beams with screws. The panels are from Multiplex Interieur Poplar. That is very light material. It's nice if you have to attach them above your head. But it is sturdy enough and can be fixed well with screws. I opted for the “grounded” version. These were well primed and 1 finishing coat was sufficient. I also chose to hang the plates floating. Metal plates attached and pushed together. Naturally, the lamp itself is screwed through the plate into the underlying slat with two large screws. And a large hook has also been mounted to support the weight of the lamp.

What are the dimensions?

The plates are oval (160.0 x 70.0 cm) and 12 mm thick.
