13th century history restored by light

Lighting Designers Sutton Vane Associates have restored important historical paintings at The Parish Church of St John the Baptist in Little Missenden using a Light Projects Evica EP40 projection system.

The Church has a range of medieval wall paintings described as an “exceptional ensemble of paintings of different periods and certainly of national importance” by the Courtauld Institute of Art.

These amazing paintings have been conserved, but due to their age have some parts missing. Sutton Vane Associates designed a projection system that could gently fade up and overlay colourful images of the original masterpieces over the existing paintings in a sequence that helps tell their story. 

So, at the touch of a button, a visitor can experience the wonderful artwork and can see how it appeared in the past.

The Parish Church of St John the Baptist appointed Sutton Vane Associates as the lighting designers for their Heritage Lottery Funded Project to develop a new, flexible and energy efficient lighting scheme. 

Light Projects supplied the 
Evica EP40 40W Effects Projection System and provided much helpful support during the installation and programming of this complex and demanding project. 

“We are delighted with the Evica EP40 40W Effects Projection System that Light Projects supplied. Light Projects were very supportive during the challenging installation stage” said Sutton Vane Associates.

Shining a light on underwater lighting

Light Projects and Wibre are showcasing the latest advents in underwater lighting at this year’s Spatex Show (Stand B57). In addition, Light Projects’ Director Roger Beckett will be hosting a seminar at the show where he will talk about how to enhance pools and spas with underwater lighting

Wibre’s new Centum°° range comprises a range of built-in and surface mounted underwater spotlights which use the very latest technology to offer industry-leading light outputs at 166 lumens per watt. This, coupled with temperature monitoring and integrated surge protection, ensures optimum operation, long life cycle and low maintenance.

Exclusively available in the UK via Light Projects, Centum°° includes four recessed IP68 underwater fittings from 5 to 47 watts. The light sources used are particularly powerful and compact LED modules available in 3000K, 4000K and 6000K as well as RGB-W and Dynamic White. Two surface-mounted spotlights complement the range for use in fountains and water features. These feature similar colour temperatures and lumen efficiency with the added versatility of distribution angles of 25° to 30°.

In addition to the launch at Spatex, Light Projects is offering product demonstrations to lighting designers and pool and spa manufacturers. If you would like to organise a visit or require more information, please email info@lightprojects.co.uk or phone 020 7231 8282.

Illuminated Swaying Reeds Light the Imagination

Lighting Designers StudioFractal have created a fantastically innovative and creative scheme in St Helen’s Square, London, developing a bespoke lighting system in partnership with Light Projects using RobLight Fibre Optics.

This is a magical example of how fibre optics can be used to transform a space with minimal use of light sources – this element of the scheme is lit with less than 100 watts.

120 fibre optic ‘custom reeds’ varying in height between 600, 900 and 1100mm have been cleverly woven into the garden of this key public space at the foot of The Leadenhall Building in the City of London. It provides an essential break-out space for nearby workers and a versatile area to accommodate exhibitions and performances.

At night time, the reeds with their glowing acrylic tips sway gentle in the breeze surrounded by a wealth of plants - all beautifully counterpointing the steel and glass of the adjoining buildings. The gently curving raised planters themselves creating seating areas and a guided walkway through the space.
 
     
884m of PMMA Optical fibre is routed unobtrusively from the reed tips down stainless-steel rods into underground ducting to four constructed pits which house RobLight FL1000 Exterior LED projectors. Four sets of 40 individual tails are specially site terminated to maximise the optical efficiency making it comparable to a factory-made Fibre Optic Harness. Each rod is anchored to a base plate buried under the planting and incorporates a spring coil that gives the desired balance of rigidity and flexibility to safely produce the swaying effect.

Once in place, the whole system is run from only four 24W LED projectors. The 4000K output with 80+ CRI colour temperature offers a bright crisp light adding to the twilight feel of the installation.

RobLight is exclusively available in the UK from Light Projects. If you would like to find out more or speak to us about a product or your project, please get in touch.
 
     

     
Lighting Up the Community

Light Projects was honoured to form a small part in helping to realise the ambitious DIY SOS Grenfell project to build the replacement Dale Youth Boxing Club and Community Centre located under the Westway.

Approached by lighting designers Hoare Lea, Light Projects donated fittings from its MentorLED range as well as LEDStar 1’s to help accomplish their creative lighting scheme. The Mentors were supplied with SR111 lamps donated by Soraa and a three-circuit track supplied by Eutrac and provided by Prime Light. Installed throughout the new Boxing Club, these have been used with eggcrete louvres to remove glare while providing illumination for the training equipment in the gym, such as the punch bags, weights and fitness machines.

The recessed IP67 LEDStar 1’s were supplied in a black finish to provide discreet general ambient lighting for the Community Centre in the kitchen area. These Mk3 LEDStars, with 2.1W CRI 90+ LEDs, had a 20° beam tilt incorporated for exact focussing in a 3000K warm white for a soft and welcoming feel.
