Context

The Dr Susan Weber Gallery - a new furniture Gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum - contains an energy efficient lighting scheme by Happold Lighting that features Concord Beacon Muse supplied by Felio Sylvania.

Happold Lighting was appointed by the V&A to work with Nord Architecture to develop a low energy, contemporary lighting scheme for the new gallery space. The practice undertook a daylight
analysis of the space, and to conserve the sensitive exhibits, natural light levels are balanced with discreetly positioned artificial lighting.

Product used

Concord Beacon Muse spotlights are installed at high level within the space and are positioned to reveal the forms and details of the V&A furniture collection. The spotlights use warm, high colour rendering LEDs, each fitted with suitable filter, depending on the exhibit.

Each luminaire is fitted with a potentiometer to allow individual setting of light levels to allow
visitors to fully appreciate the craftsmanship of the pieces.

Comment

Laura Phillips, Lighting Director at Buro Happold: “When we designed the lighting scheme for the new gallery we had a two-fold challenge – to create a sense of daylight in the space for visitors while preserving but also revealing the exhibits in the best possible way. Beacon Muse helped us achieve this and the use of LED played a significant contribution in us meeting our energy efficiency targets for the project.”

Outcome

Natural daylight and artificial lighting were brought together for maximum benefit within the gallery spaces.
