News & Business Ice Age Live Gets Painted with Light


Luc Peumans from Belgium–based creative visual design practice, Painting With Light, has designed lighting for the new “Ice Age Live” show, a vibrant stage adaptation of the 20th Century Fox ‘Ice Age’ animation movies. Over 300 special gobos are used in a variety of Clay Paky moving lights to help the process of matching and texturing the ice and the props. Lighting also helps animate the characters, with the costumes taking light exceedingly well. A substantial trussing grid installed above the ice provides positions for most of the lighting as well as flying facilities for performers and props.


Peumans comments; “I think we have succeeded in producing a series of magical and emotional moments. It felt a bit like making a movie, but with real characters playing in it…The audience get to see the characters they love up close and become immersed in the story with them”.


The new headquarters for engineering company IDOM is a 16,000m2 space situated in Monasterio de El Escorial in Madrid. The project, according to the architects, involved erecting a building to beomce the hub of IDOM’s activity, and to represent the company for visiting clients.

A Spectrum of Colour at Blackpool Illuminations


Perspex® Fabricators Inplas Fabrications are delighted to have been commissioned to produce a range of Fluted Pylons that will form an eye catching corridor of colour at this year’s Blackpool Illuminations. The event is visited by around 3.5 million people each year, so is a great opportunity for the team’s work to be seen. Designed by Jo Berry and funded by Arts Council England, the sculptural light works use the latest Perspex® materials to produce a riot of colour. Using material supplied by Perspex Distribution and inspired by a collection of drawings and photographs from the Illuminations in the 1930’s, the pylons use the latest lighting and material technology to re–create the classic designs with a modern twist. “We have been working on this exciting


project for over a year,” explains Inplas Managing Director Trevor Smith, “and it is fantastic to now see the spectacular artwork lit up. The vision and enthusiasm from Jo and the Illuminations team have enabled us to push the boundaries and utilise the full benefits of Perspex®. Using the properties of a new material, Perspex® Spectrum LED, we have maximised the light transmission from the LEDs with a bright, intense colour and no LED hotspots”.


luminaire DINAMIC C.L. was chosen, equipped with 2x28 T5 HE and high visual comfort lens. It was deemed the most suitable in order to comply with technology, optics, photometry, power, quality and aesthetics requirements. The colour temperature was chosen as 4200K for workers’ higher visual comfort. The luminaires were installed with DALI ballasts in order to be managed individually from the building’s central lighting control system. The DALI protocol enables the control of flux according to the amount of natural sunlight, and the level of lighting at each workstation can be adjusted individually. These flexible options adapt to the personal comfort parameters of each worker with special visual needs, and to achieve the highest efficiency as the system makes the most of natural sunlight.


Cambridge City Council Expands Free Light Bulb Recycling Service with Recolight


Cambridge City Council has expanded the number of low-energy light bulb recycling points it provides to residents through its partnership with Recolight. As one of the first local authorities to trial Recolight’s recycling scheme, Cambridge has now expanded it, providing eight recycling locations for the city’s 120,000 inhabitants to conveniently recycle their old low-energy light bulbs. The Council has added two new collection points; one in Waitrose on Hauxton Road and another in the Coville Road car park in Cherry Hinton. They join Recolight’s network of 800 collection points that are open for consumers to use for free. These complement the existing 1,100 Household Waste Recycling Centres operating in local authorities across the UK. Cambridge differs from most cities in that many


residents do not own cars, making a strong case for collection points to be located at convenient locations on the high street.
