Aids charity event. The amazing thing was that our scheme lit the Cathedral much better than the existing scheme and showed off the architecture properly. But being in red light people only saw and were amazed by the colour, they did not realise the way we had also enhanced the wonderful building. And this was all done before LEDs! I would love to repeat the project in white light and show the cathedral properly.


Q What project do you really admire and why? Beyond the world of lighting it would have to be the Dyson vacuum cleaner. One man, James Dyson, changed a complete global industry. For lighting, my favourite project is really weird. It is the light fitting that Lord Leighton commissioned for his house. He was so proud of having the new electric lighting that he had metal birds each holding a stem in its beak with bare light bulbs on the ends of each stem. He was proud of his new electric lighting and he wanted to show it off. If you've got it, flaunt it! Sutton Vane Associates worked on the restoration of this fantastic fitting.

Q Great news about your new office. How will this allow Sutton Vane Associates to progress in the future? We have opened another office outside London because there is demand from all parts of the country, but the main reason is that it will enable us to develop Studio One as a separate centre of excellence with a focus on retail and commercial lighting projects in particular. As we were coming up to our 15th birthday it seemed like an ideal opportunity to expand, and despite the woes of the construction sector we have been taking on new staff.


Q What projects are you working on at the moment?


It is going to be a very busy year but certainly one of the most enjoyable projects is the Titanic Signature building in Belfast, which celebrates the city’s engineering achievement as well as the tragedy that befell what was a marvellous ship, a century ago. We developed the lighting strategy for the building’s internal spaces along with concept designer Kay Elliot and the exhibition designer Event Communication. It has a dark ride and we are doing a lot with colour and shadows, including guiding people through the building using colour temperature.
