Sculpture commission project; bold tendancies

This popular annual sculpture commissioning project asked The Lighting
Design Studio for bespoke, temporary lighting solutions.


Comments from Sven Muendner Co-Director Hannah Barry gallery.

“Our exhibition space is as exciting as it is challenging: a dis-used car park in a central, urban area of London serves us as a platform to present new, commissioned sculpture by young artists. The objects require precise and crisp lighting according to the artistic specifications while the area to be covered is vast and due to the open air structure suffers from light noise.
The Lighting Design Studio has mastered the task perfectly. From a brief conversation and a site visit they deduced the key information and produced a lighting concept that we could easily understand and adjust according to our ideas. The solution was cost efficient, professional, effective and quickly installed”

The charitable project asked us to carry out the works on a very tight budget to complete the scheme, with a very fast turn around required, with particular consideration given to ensure each piece was lit appropriately and that the lighting was easy to install and take down later.”

A combination of high quality architectural lights and the use of low cost halogen lights were used to highlight the pieces. With particular care taken with the placement of the fixtures to minimise glare and to enhance the over all experience of the exhibition.

The lighting increased the visibility of the sculptures at night enabling members of the public to admire the works whilst also enjoying the fantastic panoramic views of london from the roof top.

We want to thank Louis Poulsen and iGuzzini for very kindly lending us their equipment.
