Illuminated prominade in London's Westend

26. July / 2017

Between the north and the south building, a remarkable light construction showcases the thoroughfare with its cafés and restaurants in a novel way. Carl Stahl Architecture developed a carrier structure, stretching between the buildings,which consists of I-SYS stainless steel cables in combination with LED suspension lamps. These ensure individual, changeable light moods and can be addressed directly via DMX. The carrier ropes with a diameter of 16 millimeters cross to create a grid pattern measuring 750 by 750 millimeters. Just short of 700 lights with a diameter of 80 millimeters are attached to the supporting structure at different lengths. The 12-meter expanse between the façades appears to have waves due to the different light lengths - the perfect stage for creative light designs. Carl Stahl Architecture concealed the technology the installation is based on: The data cables are elegantly routed through attractive stainless steel tubes. The lighting scenario is maintenance-friendly: The LED suspension lamps each with an illuminous power of 5.1 Watts and 165 lumens can be exchanged individually if required.
