London’s famous Courtauld Gallery on the Strand is among the latest art venues to opt for Precision Lighting’s EVO spotlights. Lighting designer Studio ZNA created a scheme for the gallery recently with 48 customised EVO S16 spots. They are located on Basis Track set into a cornice detail. The EVO S16 is a fully adjustable spotlight for the MR16 lamp, mounted on a long arm and interchangeable snoots that click into place with a bayonet mechanism.
EVO’s specially designed heat sink and airflow system reduces the lamp and surface temperature while preventing any light spill. The Courtauld chose spotlights with a white finish so that the slim spotlights illuminate the art while also blending with the decor. The gallery is home to one of the most important collections in the UK, including works by Botticelli, Rubens, Cézanne, Manet, Renoir and Van Gogh.
