Illuminate at the Science Museum

London, UK

UFO were delighted to be chosen by London based lighting design studio Sutton Vane Associates to design, manufacture and install a new range of innovative lighting systems in the London Science Museum's Illuminate event space.
Responding to demand for a dedicated events space, Illuminate was designed to be a future-proof venue to meet all manner of event requirements while being aesthetically sleek and customisable. The UFO designed grid lighting system in Level 4 and halo lights in Level 5 can 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.
Further reflecting Illuminate's identity of light and discovery, the feature skylight over the staircase between Levels 4 and 5 also has the option of solid colour or a gradient effect; mirroring the museum's own branding.
In line with the museum's ethos of innovation UFO, working alongside SVA also developed a hybrid system combining DMX lighting control with Bluetooth LE buttons - the first time these two different protocols had been used together. 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 the space for their needs and adjust every aspect of the lighting as they wish.
