Roca London


Helvar are proud to have put together the lighting control system for Roca London Gallery, the recent winner of ‘Large Retail Project’ at the Lighting Design Awards 2012.


Designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, the groundbreaking new Roca London Gallery in the heart of London is a unique concept that showcases Roca bathroom products. The gallery gets its inspiration from the power of water as a transforming element. The lighting control scheme supports the stunning interior ambience by emphasising the relationship between the architecture of the space and the design of Roca bathroom products. Located at Imperial Wharf close to Chelsea Harbour, the Roca London Gallery - the latest of the elite Roca Galleries following Barcelona, Madrid and Lisbon - demanded a unique lighting design solution.


Installed by Scomax Services, the Isometrix-designed scheme responds to the fluidity of the interior form and the changes in colour, texture and surface

finishes. The scheme makes use of cold cathode light sources, which are embedded within the building fabric and integrated into chandeliers to reveal the complex curves of the dynamic interior and interplay of materials. Scomax chose Helvar as the lighting control provider based on past experience of working with the company.


“Scomax have used Helvar systems in the past so we knew they would be a safe bet for Roca,” says Doug Kenneth, Project Engineer. “In fact, we were impressed with the service we received right from concept to completion. Of particular note was the commissioning service, which allowed us to hand over the project in full working order with lighting scenes fully programmed to suit the client’s needs.” A Helvar 452 dimmer provides appropriate levels of control for the


system, which has a variety of pre-programmed lighting scenes for day-to-day operation, daylight control and also bespoke settings for the many special events held at the gallery. Scene setting and adjustment is achieved via Helvar custom finish white keypads, and the system is also integrated as part of a touch screen controlled audiovisual system. The 452 is a DALI compatible dimmer that can operate in either a trailing or leading edge mode for maximum installation flexibility. At Roca London the dimmer is in trailing edge mode for seamless control of the cold cathode light sources.
