Litestructures makes a splash at Westfield Stratford City


Jason Bruges Studio, in conjunction with Prolyte Group, have designed the world's first digital water feature for the new Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, East London. Renowned installation artists, Jason Bruges Studio, were commissioned to create a groundbreaking 'public art' design to be a key feature in Chestnut Plaza, the central public square leading to the Olympic Stadium. They turned to Prolyte Group's creative brand division, Litestructures, to help them realise their vision. The structure has been created as a digital water feature, dubbed 'Digital Fountain', and uses light to represent water in an illusory waterfall effect. The Litestructures team undertook comprehensive 3D solid modelling allowing virtual engineering of both the structural integrity and complex assembly of the structure. The main tower stands at an impressive 12 metres tall, is triangular in plan and contains 2856 LCD panels and their associated controls and cables. Angled panels surround the top of the tower with a more tapered design towards the base of the structure to mitigate 'climbability'. Granite benches, known as 'rills', incorporating 4165 smaller LCD panels, surround the base of the tower, giving the impression of water dissipating along channels as it reaches ground level.


Verbatim launches OLED modules


Verbatim announces the release of an OLED module that lighting designers, artists, engineers, and architects can use to easily implement the creative lighting schemes using the company’s VELVE OLED panels. Each module comprises a colour-tunable, framed VELVE OLED panel with a light emitting area of 123mm x 123mm. A printed circuit board with the control electronics is mounted onto the back of each panel. The whole assembly measures 146.4mm wide x 133.3mm long x 8.7mm deep and weights 192 grams. The dimmable OLED module, which consumes 2.6W from a 24V DC power source, features both DMX512 and DALI intefaces and its integral calibration ensures uniform light distribution from panel-to-panel. It delivers RGB colour at up to 47.6 lumens, illuminance of 1000 candelas per square metre at a colour temperature of 3000K, and luminous efficacy of 31 lumens per Watt.


Guano Apes with MAC Aura™ and Martin M1™


Lighting designer Stephan Aue of Ambion GmbH is one of the first Lighting Designers worldwide to use Martin Professional’s new MAC Aura wash light and placed 42 of the award-winning fixtures on the German rock band Guano Apes’ current European tour. The MAC Aura is the first compact LED moving head wash light with zoom that uses two independent color systems to produce new ‘eye-candy’ effects plus functions as a highly capable single-lens wash with fully pre-mixed color. It was launched at the PLASA trade show in London in September, winning a PLASA Award for Innovation. “We were all amazed about the fact that it is an LED wash with such a cool beam angle and zoom,” Aue continues. “The eye candy was also catchy enough to think about investing and the decision to buy them fell the very next day. Ambion was one of the first companies to order some and as soon as we got the okay for an on-time delivery for the Guano Apes tour, I replaced all the wash fixtures in the original design with the Auras.”
