One of Europe’s most respected architectural lighting brands is set to open The Vault.

  • Location: Newhaven (40 minutes from Gatwick Airport)
  • Size: approximately 100m2 across four rooms and catering facility
  • Opening: Spring 2022

Concord by Sylvania’s The Vault; is so much more than a training academy. Planned for a Spring 2022 opening, the new facility is designed to bring people together to share in light, as a response to months of being apart. The interactive hub covers approximately 100m2 across four rooms, all of which can be customised to meet specific event requirements.  In recognition of his hard work and dedication, the main boardroom is named in honour of Concord’s longest-serving employee, Tony Lawrence, Product Design Manager, who has been with the brand since its conception in 1968. The Lawrence Room occupies 40m2 of the space. There are three smaller rooms (Enlighten, Illuminate, and Connect) for demonstrations and meetings. The aim is to enlighten with knowledge, illuminate with new technologies and connect with colleague and clients. Each room is lit in a different style to showcase the brand’s latest technical innovations: from office, education and museum fittings to UGR downlights, pendants, residential and custom ceiling luminaires.

Simon Reed, Chief Executive Officer (EMEA), says, “At a time when we have all been forced apart, it is exciting to start planning how we reconnect with customers and employees. The Vault is designed to do just that. Providing the perfect conditions to connect, enlighten and inspire each other again and enabling us to experience light in its various forms.”  Darrell West, Sales Director, Specification UK, adds “As a team we are extremely passionate about offering our clients exceptional support and service, and sharing our knowledge. We look forward to inviting our clients and partners to The Vault to uncover some of Concord by Sylvania’s treasures.” Visits are by invitation only, so keep a lookout for yours.
