Precision Clients Win Lighting Design Awards
Two projects featuring Precision Lighting luminaires have won 2013 Lighting Design Awards.
Paul Nulty Lighting Design has won the 2013 Lighting Design Awards retail category for its scheme at fashion chain SuperDry’s world flagship store on Regent Street, London. And Mindseye won the award for International Interior Projects with its stunning scheme for the BMW Showroom, Paris.
‘Precision Lighting is very proud to sponsor the Lighting Design Awards,’ says managing director Alex Ruston. ‘And we are delighted that Paul Nulty Lighting Design has won with SuperDry, a project that rightly received high praise in the media and featured our LED Pico 1 spotlights in a key role. Mindseye has specified Precision Lighting for a number of projects. Its design for the BMW Showroom in Paris is spectacular and well deserving of the award. It also used our discreet Pico luminaire.’
Precision Lighting sponsored the Interior Luminaires category of the 2013 Lighting Design Awards at the London Hilton on Wednesday 27 March, 2013. Alex also congratulated Havells-Sylvania for winning the award for this category with its innovative Concord Glace bulkhead luminaire. Precision Lighting supplied 396 Pico 1 LED luminaires for PNLD’s SuperDry scheme. The store has more than 9,500 square feet of prime retail space decked out in authentic distressed woodwork, rusted metals and intensely styled zones by architect SKK. The shelving and vitrines are illuminated with miniature Pico 1 LED spotlights which provide jewellery case-style lighting.
LED technology helped ensure the scheme is very low-energy, consuming only 15W/m2. Working closely with PNLD and Supergroup, Precision Lighting designed and manufactured standard and custom Pico 1 luminaires. These were mounted to systems including bespoke elliptical brass and aluminium basis tracks, retrac, and monopoints, to integrate seamlessly into each individual display.
Sponsoring the Lighting Design Awards is just one of a series of outreach initiatives by Precision Lighting aimed at supporting lighting professionals. The company recently hosted a briefing for leading lighting designers and architects working in the museum and gallery lighting sector. Precision also has close links with Brunel University and has a student placement scheme designed to encourage new talent in the lighting sector.
The company recently invested in research and testing facilities at its south London headquarters to support the launch of three new LED spotlight ranges: the versatile Oculus, the sleek Discus and the discreet Pico. It also recently simplified its product numbering system and added a product selector tool to its website to make specifying easier.
