Kalmar Oyster Chandeliers QNCC Doha, Qatar

Lloyd Martin's insight:

This spectacular design supply and installation. A unique concept brought to life by our partners Kalmar. 


The Conference Hall has a capacity for 4,000 seats (or 2,000 when used as a banqueting venue). LED colour changing back-lit disc panels provide ambient light for the space. These can be lowered to the floor for maintenance purposes. Circular dynamic lighting trusses with controlled spotlights for banquet use surround each of the discs.


These can be set at defined levels for public use and lowered to the ground for rigging and maintenance. In between the discs hang dynamic decorative chandeliers, dubbed Oyster Lights, comprised of LED back-lit colour changing panels viewed through arrays of Swarovski crystal. This arrangement allows the room to be colour set and balanced with the back-lit discs. The Oyster Lights themselves are motorised, enabling them to silently rise, lower, open and close to suit the requirements of the hall.


Individually controllable, they can each be set to different heights or altered en masse using a pre-programmed lowering sequence. The chandeliers span five metres when opened and offer a helpful way of lowering the perceived ceiling height in order to create a more intimate dining experience.

'Harry Potter Abbey' gets lit up

'Harry Potter Abbey' gets lit up | Coloured light for Architecture | Scoop.it
The cloisters at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire have been lit up by the National Trust as part of a new installation.
Lloyd Martin's insight:

The 13th Century abbey - seen as the birthplace of photography having been home to pioneer William Fox Talbot and more recently was used to film scenes from Harry Potter - has been brought to life with illuminations and special effects lighting.


Some of the original colours the cloisters will be painted will return and although it is a shame that we cannot get intensity of the painted colours, it will give a sense of the conditions and atmosphere of the cloisters when the nuns were in residence.


The effects have been designed to give a sense of some of the activities which once took place in the abbey cloisters including putting fires back into fireplaces and projecting impressions of colours once painted on the abbey's walls.
