The three schemes that DHA worked on could not have been more different, each requiring a considered approach to the lighting scheme to reflect the individual scheme design, the needs of the audio-visual environment and the very particular lighting requirements of the objects in each exhibition.
Google’s Weblab project required a cool palette of light to suggest the laboratory environment, punctuated by splashes of warm light to indicate interaction and energy.
Heatherwick Studio’s Designing the Extraordinary scheme required a tight punch of light onto each item and object on display to create a jewel-like display of this company’s remarkable output.
The Casson Mann-designed Hollywood Costume sought to re-create the hyper-reality of the film soundstage with dramatic, dark backdrops and projected images to immerse the visitor in the world of character creation by the work of the costume designer.
Congratulations to all of the nominated scheme designers. We were delighted to have provided the lighting designs to each of these remarkable exhibitions.
