London Transport Museum.
SkinFlint Design were appointed Lighting Designers for this corporate hospitality suite of the London Transport Museum in 2008.
A modest, yet intricate development by architects Denner Ellis Boddington centred on a multi use boardroom where a flexible lighting scheme was required to adjust to an array of differing activities ranging from corporate board meetings, through video conferences to evening receptions.
A multi source layout, comprising of indirect and direct fluorescent, LED and LV halogen sources effortlessly adapts to the changing roles of the space via a single lighting control system. The boardroom layout not only provides functional illumination but also serves in highlighting the original Victorian cornice work; a strong visual link is formed between this and the linear lighting product. The language of the boardroom was extended into the waiting and circulation areas with indirect fluorescent coving acting to accentuate areas of interest and subtly navigate visitors through the space. Within the waiting area the rear of a custom built display cabinet is highlighted with a hidden colour changing detail, allowing the hosts to set the system to that of their corporate colours whilst a fibre optic arrangement accentuates the content within. All areas within the scheme are controlled via presence sensors to reduce energy consumption.
Original period feature lighting from the 1950’s was supplied by our sister company to link the area with the content of the adjoining main museum.
