Because of the unusual design and specification of the roof structure there was a very stringent set of guidelines for Studiotech to follow. They designed 982 LED nodes that would each fill a maximum footprint of 100mm square and could be fixed with one M1O fixing bolt to a pre- tapped hole. This disguised the LED diode and also allowed for interconnection, giving seamless control with each addressable node.


temple-like department store. Galeries Lafayette incorporates a ‘Mix and Match’ philosophy as an important and integral part of the store design and the lighting reflects this in an optimum manner.

Leeds’ consumers have seen a massive development in their city centre in the form of the new Trinity Leeds Shopping Centre costing £350m. Studiotech were part of this huge project and created a three dimensional lighting effect ceiling that not only engages consumers but is also a talking point. The robust installation is primarily used as a standalone dynamic feature but can also create stunning light shows. Taking advantage of the advances of 3D printing the team at Studiotech designed and developed a bespoke range of fittings for the roof. The triple glazed glass within the roof structure allows for a multitude of visual reflections and the varying lengths of acrylic wands housing each of the LED nodes creates inspiring visual effects.

The ceiling has over 3000 components individually designed, manufactured and installed by Studiotech. The containment and node housing were all coated with a polyester powder coating to give the installation a uniform appearance when viewed from the malls and bridges. When the lights are turned on the effects are astounding. The lights are integrated with the BMS system to allow for overall control of the light level and to change the mood from night to day. There are 40 scenes pre- programmed by Studiotech in the library and these allow for combinations of static colours, effects and other media to be layered to create a wide range of lighting effects. Different scenes are triggered through the use of an astronomical clock or via the BMS system.


The system is also set up to incorporate special events; the user friendly system allows centre management to take advantage of the full breadth of the system by adding video and sound. They can also run any scene at any time or even create new scenes.
