Lighting Design Awards Project Finalists
Seven projects that use Precision Lighting’s luminaires have been shortlisted for this year’s Lighting Design Awards at the London Hilton on March 20, 2014. Into Lighting has three schemes in the Restaurants and Hotels category and a fourth under International Interiors, alongside Mindseye. PJC Light Studio and Illumination Works have been shortlisted for Large Retail projects. Precision Lighting is also in the running for a Lighting Design Award with its Pico Zoom variable beam LED mini-spotlight system.
Precision Lighting managing director Alex Ruston said, ‘we are delighted that such a variety of lighting schemes from these top consultancies are in contention for the Lighting Design Awards. We wish them all the best of luck on the night. This has been an excellent year for us with the launch of the new Pico LED spotlight range including the Pico Zoom, which is shortlisted in the Interior Luminaires category. Whoever wins, it will be a great event.’
Two of Into Lighting’s shortlisted projects are in London’s Shard, at the Aqua and Hutong restaurants. The third is at London’s Buddha Bar. Into also lit Il Milione in Hong Kong (shown in image above), run by Michelin-starred chef Marco Gubbiotti. Mindseye is in contention with its scheme for the refurbished Church of St Moritz, the oldest church in Augburg. PJC Light Studio has been shortlisted for one of its projects at Selfridges, while Illumination Works is hoping to win with its design for luxury goods retailer Smythson of Bond Street, London.
Precision Lighting’s shortlisted Zoom optic is an addition to the entire Pico range of LED mini-spotlights. A combination of adjustable optics and exceptionally smooth movement makes it possible to position and focus these discreet spotlights with pinpoint accuracy with beam widths from between 12 degrees and 30 degrees.
