Lighting a museum gallery is always something to be glad about. Museums do appreciate light and lighting and lighting designers always hold a key role in the project. Lighting the Heatherwick designed Cauldron, was more than a privilege to begin with: The Cauldron is symbolic object of a glorious moment of the city that I live and love, a moment which pretty much coincides with me moving in the city, which in a personal levels signifies a lot.
So, this is a museum gallery, nevertheless a gallery that narrates the moment when all eyes were turned to London. And there is a big difference than any other gallery that I've worked. Lighting here is part of the exhibit, rather than just illuminating it. That left a bunch of opportunities to express myself as a designer stretching the limits of what is acceptable in a museum space.
And what we delivered is a mix of dynamic entertainment lighting and dramatic gallery lighting. And for the gentle mix of those I am proud. I hope you'll visit, enjoy the space and rexperience the moment.
