Working closely with technicians from Bristol-based Downend Electronics, it was decided that a surface mounted fitting from EMFA would provide the right lighting effect for the Stumpery, without impacting on the delicate ecosystem of the space. The decision to use EMFA products was made based on their functionality and 1P67 durability; “When we began looking at the possibilities for lighting this space, it made sense to us, with all the natural beauty and wildlife around, to keep this lighting arrangement as efficient
