TM Lighting worked with London Design Festival 2019 to illuminate ‘Legacy’ on display at V&A Museum, 14th – 22nd September
London’s top cultural leaders collaborate with influential designers to create a ‘legacy’ piece in American red oak for London Design Festival.
In May of 2019 Sir John Sorrell CBE, Chairman of London Design Festival, invited leaders of London’s cultural institutions to collaborate with some of Europe’s most exciting designers to create a ‘legacy’ piece of design – an object of personal or professional relevance that they would like to pass on to a family member or the institution they lead.
The pieces – ten in total – are all crafted using American red oak. Nine of these beautiful and thought-provoking collaborations are on show in the Sculpture Gallery of the Victoria & Albert Museum, and one piece outside the Natural History Museum on Exhibition Road, for the duration of London Design Festival, 14-22 September 2019.

Dísir – an exhibition in collaboration with Kristian Day Gallery
and Jeanette Gunnarson, 11th July – 30th August 2019
at TM Lighting Gallery
TM Lighting is delighted to announce Dísir, an exhibition in collaboration with curators Kristian Day and Jeanette Gunnarson featuring work by contemporary artists Aisha Christison, Anousha Payne and Lucy Evetts.
Dísir explores the correlation of digital and spiritual ‘other worlds’, new and old realities be they algorithmic or folkloric. Free association and creativity are pitted against and merged with automated reasoning. How much expression is left to chance? Fittingly the Dísir of our title were the female deities of Norse mythology known to control fate, be it benevolent or hostile.
Aisha Christison’s paintings are saccharine dreamlike scenes that pay homage to formative years spent between the virtual and physical world. Operating outside of conventional dimensional planes, Christison employs imagery using interwoven fragments of her personal history through a visual language made possible by digital technology yet also shows its origins in European post-expressionism. With a strong sense of nostalgia, her paintings offer the viewer an intimate view to her interior world.
Anousha Payne’s work explores the human pursuit of spirituality in object form, as a form of cultural expression that is distinct from religious symbolism. Through the process of psychic automatism and free-association, she is interested in the possibility of imbuing spirituality into an object, and in the material qualities of religious or spiritual objects. Payne is currently researching the anthropological notion of new animism and is exploring how this can express spirituality through instinctive drawings and watercolour paintings, these are then translated into sculptures. This process seeks to build an aesthetic dialogue and personal visual language as a meditative interaction. A recurring theme is highlighting the incongruity between ancient materiality and modern technology.
Lucy Evetts makes paintings and installations using a variety of different approaches that include paint, silk screen and print. Using text and imagery Evetts creates fragmented voices and visual languages that continuously collide juggling private and public experiences. Predominantly sourcing her imagery from social media, led by her own online algorithm, and attempts to question ideas of intimacy and modes of sharing to create paradoxical narratives.
TM Lighting, leading art lighting specialists, will collaborate with Kristian Day and Jeanette Gunnarson to illuminate the works of art in Dísir using their high colour rendition LED gallery spotlights to bring the works of art to life within TM Lighting Gallery.
A Private View will take place on 10th July, 6.30 pm – 8.30pm.

Shining a light on design innovation; TM Lighting joins Benjamin Hubert of LAYER, and Cosentino, to present ‘Raytrace’ at Milan Design Week, 2019
April 9th – 14th 2019
TM Lighting, British designer and maker of specialist LED art lighting, has joined British designer Benjamin Hubert of LAYER in collaboration with Cosentino, worldwide leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, to present Raytrace at Milan Design Week 2019. The collaboration showcases an immersive, architectural installation introducing Dekton®, the ultra-compact, large format surface by Cosentino – exploring the product’s design, innovation, strength, durability and beauty.
The large-scale, architectural installation Raytrace is a 25-metre long and 6-metre high triangular passage composed of Dekton® ultracompact surfaces, seemingly balanced on a single edge within a dark, atmospheric space. Upon entering the passageway, a mesmerising caustic pattern slowly dances across the surface, emulating the refraction of light through water – evoking the serene feeling of being underwater. As visitors walk through the passage, they become a part of the installation, as their shadows are cast against the structure’s surface. Two mirrors at either end of the vault reflect the installation, creating the illusion of an infinite space and offering glimpses of the caustic patterns playing out on the interior.
The lighting for Raytrace is an integral part of Hubert’s installation at Milan Design Week. TM Lighting has specified their superior, high colour rendition LED ZeroSixty accent lights with a custom length snoot to provide enhanced glare control, mounted above the installation on Arttrack to focus the light directly into the organic forms composed of Dekton® ultracompact surfaces, creating caustic light effects and an immersive and mesmerising experience for visitors.
Hubert’s design references the highly technological qualities of Dekton® as an indoor/outdoor architectural product and the natural minerals used to produce the material. Taking inspiration from the Dekton® creation process, Hubert creates a dramatic, interactive experience showcasing the harmony between nature, light and architecture.
Benjamin Hubert comments “We chose the ZeroSixty light’s by TM Lighting for our immersive Raytrace installation for their technical attributes. We were looking for a sustainable, high-powered single LED light source to create the unique caustic lighting experience – the centerpiece of the installation, and they were the perfect choice.”
Harry Triggs of TM Lighting comments, “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Benjamin Hubert to present Raytrace at Milan Design Week. It’s exciting to bring together TM’s specialist LED art lighting with Cosentino’s innovative material to create an experience that explores the boundless possibilities of light and design.”
TM Lightings partnership with Benjamin Hubert follows their previous collaboration for LAYER’s show-stopping FOIL installation at London Design Festival, one of the most visited installations showcased at London’s V&A Museum.
