OXFORD STREET ESTATE WIN IALD AWARD OF MERIT
On the 9th May 2018, the lighting profession gathered in Chicago’s trendy Revel Fulton Market to honour the winners of the 35th Annual International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) International Lighting Design Awards.
Seventeen projects from eleven countries were on display – including interiors, workspaces, museums, hospitality sites, and a place of worship. This year’s winners represent some of the most innovative and inspiring work found anywhere in the world of architectural lighting design.
The design of the Oxford Street Estate in London, with lighting design by Lighting Design International, took home an Award of Merit, accepted in person by Graham Rollins on behalf of the LDI design team.
For this type of project our BLADE and FUSION LED luminaires were a match made in heaven. BLADE – our linear wall graze luminaire with its mains on-board easily grazes up to an impressive eight meters in height. It’s narrow beam is fully dimmable from 0-100% (not a flicker in sight) and even running at a massive length of 210m, very little additional cabling was required because of its clever loop in/loop out wiring. It doesn’t stop their either, BLADE also features a single, combined power and data cable which did not distract from the overall design. (Very discreet) Working in harmony with BLADE – FUSION was the perfect partner to graze down the towering 35 meter pillars, dominating the skyline at either end of the bridge.
