This exhibition shows DHA’s continuing collaboration with the Science Museum, and adds to our body of work in the field.

Only in England, Science Museum

DHA are very proud to have been asked to light the first exhibition in the new Media Gallery at the Science Museum in London.

The exhibition, the first in London showcasing British photographer Tony Ray-Jones, opened on Saturday as part of major refurbishment works in the space.

The exhibition also shows works by Martin Parr, who followed on from Ray-Jones’ work on cataloguing British life. Parr was asked by the National Media Museum to scour their archives of Ray-Jones’ work. He selected unfamiliar and previously unexhibited pieces for the gallery.

The gallery is an exciting new space in London, with the potential to show case major new works, and DHA are very pleased to be part of it. In the spirit of this, the gallery uses LED lighting and daylight harvesting to reduce the energy footprint.

Only in England runs until 16th of March 2014 in London and then from the 22nd of March until the 29th of June in Bradford.

More information and ticketing can be found on the Science Museum’s website here.

Casio G-Shock

Basement of the Casio G-Shock StoreCasio opened their new flagship store for the G-Shock brand in London on Saturday 21st of April and DHA Designs were very pleased to be brought in to advise on the lighting for the store. DHA Designs were retained by HarrimanSteel on this exciting project in a premier location in the heart of Covent Garden.

The store was designed as a very flexible space, retaining a strong aesthetic. Upstairs, the store has a modern, stylish feel; while the downstairs is more urban. The lighting is designed to compliment the space and remain consistent throughout.
