RIVERS OF LIGHT


VALLADOLID, SPAIN CLIENT: VALLADOLID’S MUNICIPALITY AND PHILIPS LIGHTING Designed with the concept of using light as a communication tool, the route of light seamlessly links different areas of the city whilst also enhancing the public’s interac- tion with the varied activities available, be they culture, dining, shopping or leisure. In addition the route was designed with the intention of revealing the dynamism of the city throughout the year, keeping it open to visitors during all the seasons. Starting at sunset, the Rivers of Light route reveals a new vision of Valladolid, its richness and cultural options through the beautification with light of a wide selection of architec- tural heritage. The scheme won first prize in the Philips/ LUCI 2011 city.people.light awards.


EXHIBITION DOMENIKIS THEOTOKOPOULOS, 1900, EL


GRECO - MEXICO CITY DESIGNERS: OMB DESIGN CLIENT: SEACEX The main challenge of this exhibition was to relieve El Greco from its dark and gloomy reputation, and rescue the extremely rich colour palette that he acquired while living in Venice. For this purpose, OMB painted all the vertical surfaces in lapis lazuli blue, achieving an original and effective result. Because of the very special structure of the exhibition area, the lighting system had to be integrated in a very discreet and non-in- trusive way, in order to be completely invisible and avoid glare. The luminaires used were very small and linear, easy to hide and con- trol, achieving a smooth and magical effect on the paintings which appear to be floating in space. The remaining exhibition rooms were lit in a way as to produce an intimate atmosphere, as well as to reinforce the very special and often wrongly understood style of El Greco. The chosen projectors were deliberately contemporary and flexible enough to adapt to the many different painting sizes, ad- justing not only the light beam but also the light flux individually on each painting. The main challenge of this project was to achieve a general atmosphere of semidarkness, lighting the paintings in a very smooth and even way without hot or bright spots to allow a perfect appreciation of details and colours without revealing the restoration processes. Another very important issue was the aiming adjustment as well as the severe lighting levels control, UV and IR radiations on the paintings.
