Lux Awards 2019 Shortlisted projects

October 7th, 2019 | Latest News | 0 Comments

Designed to celebrate and reward both creativity and sustainability in lighting, the Lux Awards will take place from 19:00 on the final day on the show, Thursday 14th November at the new location of The Hilton, Park Lane in London. The Lux Awards recognise clients and end users that have used lighting in exceptional ways to improve their lit environment, reduce energy and achieve business objectives. This year’s shortlists include…

 

Hospitality, Leisure and Faith Project of the Year

Illuminate, London

Sutton Vane Associates

Recognised for their creativity, innovation and commitment to sustainable solutions, Sutton Vane Associates responded to Illuminate’s brief of a dedicated, future-proofed events space that would meet all manners of event requirements while being aesthetically sleek and customisable. The grid lighting system installed by SVA in Level 4 and halo lights in Level 5 have been designed to be controlled as a whole or individually, with each line of the grid and each halo having the option of a standalone colour and brightness.

SVA also developed a hybrid system combining DMX lighting control with Bluetooth LE buttons. All lighting systems can also be controlled via an intuitive app for an additional cost when hiring Illuminate, which allows the in-house production team to easily customise and adjust every aspect of the lighting in the space for their needs.

Office, Education and Healthcare Lighting Project of the Year

Värde Partners Office, London

Susan Lake Lighting Design

Susan Lake Lighting Design worked with interior architects KKS Strategy to create a lighting design scheme for the London office of Värde Partners. Being an international company, Värde require video conferencing facilities in all the meeting rooms. Although it was necessary to provide light to tables and even illumination to faces, it was essential that members of a video conference could see to work and would not be seen on the cameras in shadow or silhouette. To achieve this objective, Susan Lake Lighting Design used a combination of light sources that produce the effect of layering the lighting. The meeting rooms have also been transformed with a unique ceiling feature which washes light around the edges of the pale timber slat ceiling perimeters.

In the reception, Susan Lake Lighting Design created a sense of drama and understated elegance by turning the main focal point of the space, the reception desk, into a spectacular visionary by creating a “floating” effect by concealing linear LED in the top element of the desk.

Outdoor Lighting Project of the Year

Kimpton Fitzroy, London

Lighting Design International

The Kimpton Fitzroy is a landmark Grade-II listed building. The striking grandeur of the terracotta facades and immaculate detailing required a restrained lighting design, respecting the building’s illustrious history.

Lighting Design International were tasked with forming a strategy to lighting the exterior of the building without overcomplicating an already busy façade and ensuring the lighting effects didn’t merge together. The key to the success of the scheme was balancing the intensity of each lighting effect. Senior Designer on the project, Ben Ferris, repeated general lighting effects at high-level, collectively creating linear compositions of light across each level, framing each façade and outlining the architectural form of the building with areas of intrigue created at street level for guests.

KSLD | EFLA Lighting Design wins IALD Award of Merit at the IALD Awards 2019

May 24th, 2019 | Latest News | 0 Comments

KSLD are delighted to celebrate the latest achievement for their Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber project. On behalf of the project team, Kevan Shaw received the IALD Award of Merit on 22nd May at the 2019 IALD Education Trust Benefit Dinner + 36th Annual IALD International Lighting Design Awards ceremony in Philadelphia, USA. KSLD | EFLA Lighting Design wishes to extend its congratulations to all who worked on this remarkable project.

Kevan Shaw said, “I am extremely proud to receive our first IALD Award of Merit for the Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber. We are of course also extremely proud of this project and the international recognition it has received for excellence in lighting design.”.

The judges called the bespoke LED lights a “technically brilliant solution” to the challenge – how to light a room that functions effectively as a TV studio for parliamentarians and visiting guests, and an accessible public space.

The project was judged as a winner in a field of more than 200 entries and has been formerly recognised at awards ceremonies across the globe. Significantly in 2018, the project was winner of the First Prize for Lighting Design at the Codega Awards; Highly Commended in the Office, Education and Healthcare Lighting Project of the Year category at the Lux Awards; Commended in the Workplace category at the Lighting Design Awards and Commended in the Lighting category at the Scottish Design Awards.

Kevan was also speaker at LIGHTFAIR International 2019, 23rd May, on the subject of ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Architect as Lighting Designer in the 1900s’ – The talk showed specific examples of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s lighting design and illustrated from research undertaken, the working methods of the period. Kevan has travelled in Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s footsteps twice; to recreate the original lighting in the construction of his competition winning House for an Art Lover and also in the restoration of the fire damaged Glasgow School of Art.

KSLD | EFLA Lighting Design goes from strength to strength as they also celebrate Associate Director Natalie Redford’s recent recognition as one of Lighting Magazine’s 40under40 class of 2019, announced at the Lighting Design Awards 2019. KSLD’s Icelandic colleagues’ beautiful project, The Lava Tunnel, Raufarholshelir, Iceland was also Highly Commended in the Public Realm and Landscape Project of the Year category at the same ceremony in London on 16th May.

SLL Lighting Handbook 2018

November 28th, 2018 | Latest News | 0 Comments

A major drive has been underway across the lighting profession to update the existing SLL Lighting Handbook. This work has involved over sixty people with some twenty-five chapter editors and nearly forty reviewers and technical auditors. These are mostly Members of the Society of Light and Lighting (SLL), drawn from over forty companies involved in lighting, including leading manufacturers, consultants and universities from across the country and overseas. Leading the effort has been Paul Ruffles, ex Chair of the SLL Technical and Publications Committee and Honorary Fellow of the Society of Light and Lighting.

Paul was named Lux Person of the Year at the Lux Awards on 15th November 2018 in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the lighting industry and for his work on the new edition of the SLL Handbook.

Widely established as a first stop for anyone seeking information on lighting, the previous edition of the SLL Handbook was published in 2009. Chapters on vision and light which were featured have now been removed and will be included within the brand new SLL Code for Lighting, which is due to be published in 2019. Additionally, the section which looked to towards the future have been removed, as time has shown that trends often move faster than predicted. The remaining chapters have been reviewed, updated and rewritten with the addition of 13 brand new chapters and 4 appendices, making the SLL Handbook one of the most comprehensive guides to interior and exterior lighting in the world.

New chapters summarise specific applications of light detailed in the individual SLL Lighting Guides such as LG13: Places of Worship; LG14: Control of Electric Lighting; and LG15: Lighting for Transport Buildings amongst others. Moreover, the Handbook will also look at areas not yet covered including historic buildings, exterior architectural and lighting for extreme environments.

There is also a new chapter on general building areas. Those important, but often neglected common spaces within buildings – corridors, toilets, entrance halls, along with back of house areas such as locker rooms and storage areas.

In order to assist the increasing number of lighting designers coming into the industry from non-engineering backgrounds, there are also chapters focusing on integration with other building services, electrical supplies and the important final commissioning of the lighting systems, in line with Commissioning Code L: Lighting (2018).

The SLL Handbook is aimed at those already working within the lighting industry and those in related fields who would benefit from a better understanding of the application of lighting, including electrical engineers, contractors, facilities managers and many more. The guidance is both practical and accessible to a wide variety of people, providing an overview of the fundamentals, technology and the application of light for different spaces and occupant requirements.

The brand new SLL Lighting Handbook is now available for purchase and download from the SLL website.
