  • More about TM Lighting’s G150
    The G150 is agallery spotlight with narrow 9 degree optics and magnetic quick change lenses. The 9˚ narrow beam width is particularly important as it is difficult to achieve with LEDs. Galleries with tall ceilings need narrow beam spotlights as the diameter of the beam gets larger and more diffuse the further away you get from the light source; narrow beam lights are better for lighting sculpture. The snap on lens is perfect for ‘selling’ and ‘public’ galleries with rolling art collections as it makes the focusing element much faster and allows us to change the beam width to wider beams, or add other accessories key to the focusing of the artwork.

On 18th January 2018, TM Lighting joined the panel at the annual Share Museums East Collections Care Conference ‘Is Seeing Believing?’
In association with the University of Cambridge Museums Collections Care and Conservation Programme explored the current challenges in heritage lighting.

Much has been written over the years about light in museums, galleries and historic properties. Monitoring equipment and scientific data is more accessible than ever before. But where do we go from here? What do we do with the data? How do we apply this knowledge? And what does it mean for the smallest to the largest of collection?

TM Lighting discussed the benefits of using LEDs in galleries and heritage spaces, including quality of light, sensitivity of light, and product selections.

The panel included:

Mick Stanley, Independent Researcher – Introduction to lighting in general and Government Indemnity Scheme requirements

Chris Woods, National Conservation Services – Standards and Guidelines, PAS 198 and EN16893 etc

Analytik – current available technology and technological limitation

Helena Rodwell, Fitzwilliam Museum – Light mapping

‘Planet on Fire’ Art Exhibition at TM Lighting

On 22, Aug 2017 | In News | By ADMIN

28th September – 15th December 2017 (weekdays by appointment).

From 27th September, an exhibition of work by contemporary artists, Tamsin Relly and Henry Hussey, will go on display for three months at TM Lighting. Curated by Jo Baring of the Ingram Collection, the exhibition is a collaboration with TM Lighting as part of our ongoing programme of exhibitions supporting emerging artists.

Hussey and Relly will collaborate for the first time in a two-person exhibition ‘Planet on Fire’. Their works both address current socio-political and environmental issues. Relly’s multi-layered, tonal and expressive paintings will juxtapose Hussey’s bold striking works in tapestry, alongside a selection of new original prints by both artists.

Baring comments “It’s wonderful to collaborate with TM Lighting to provide a platform to show the work of two such exciting artists at a similar stage in their career, having shown together in past group shows this is the first time they will present an exhibition as a duo. In different ways, each are responding to a world in crises. Hussey’s work with a more socio-political emphasis, and Relly’s from more of an environmental angle – global warming, extinction of species, and depletion of ecosystems. The result is a vibrant and thought-provoking exhibition.”

TM Lighting and Seam Design illuminate ‘Transmission’ by Ross Lovegrove for London Design Festival

On 20, Sep 2017 | In News | By TM Lighting

Lighting up ‘Transmission’ by Ross Lovegrove at the V&A

Architectural lighting specialists, SEAM Design, has partnered with lighting experts, TM Lighting to light Ross Lovegrove’s installation ‘Transmission’, presented by Alcantara at the V&A as part of London Design Festival, 16 – 24th September 2017.

Transmission is a collaboration between Alcantara and British designer, Ross Lovegrove, on display in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Tapestries Room for London Design Festival. Inspired by the 15th century Devonshire Hunting Tapestries at the V&A, Lovegrove created a spectacular 21-metre-long fluid and free-standing three-dimensional tapestry, which is made entirely from Alcantara®, the renowned Italian material. A tactile and pliable material, the soft undulating folds of the installation reflect and highlight both colours and forms of the medieval tapestries. The versatility of the material is highlighted in the different methods of treatment, including colouring and embellishment.

Championing innovation and excellence in lighting design, SEAM Design has created the lighting for a number of landmark installations at the museum since 2011. Following three previously successful world-class lighting designs at the V&A with TM Lighting, they embarked on a new collaboration for Lovegrove’s visionary installation to provide LED accent spots to illuminate the installation. Choosing TM Lighting is a result of their continued research and investment into a range of products that matches and often surpasses museum-grade lighting in terms of light quality and light distribution.

“We’re excited to be invited once again by London Design Festival to provide specialist art lighting at The V&A in collaboration with Seam Design. This year, to illuminate Ross Lovegrove’s ‘Transmission’, we’ve utilised our new TM Zero 150 gallery LED spotlight which provides a focused beam ideal for museum ceiling heights to beautifully highlight the undulating folds and loops in Alcantara’s® unique textural material, framing scenes within the V&A’s historic tapestries, whilst also considering conservation light levels to preserve the delicate fabrics.”
Harry Triggs, Founder and Director, TM Lighting

The design concept was to provide specialist lighting that would bring out the rich colours within the unique fabric, which has been specially dyed to colour-match tones within the surrounding tapestries, and delicately light the top edges in the loops of Alcantara® where viewers can intuitively consider the tapestry through the evocative folds of the material. The design of the artwork frames particular themes and scenes within the tapestries to view through the folds, creating an interactive experience for visitors, which merges design, creativity and art. It was therefore important for the lighting to be carefully positioned, working within tight angles to highlight the textures and faces of the frames only, and not the sides of the folds. Through a simple system, the lighting provides multi-layered experiences of the ‘Transmission’ as the centrepiece by illuminating the continuous ribbon of fabric as well as the surrounding historical tapestries in the room. It’s shaped to create a continuous curtain of light that falls on the edges of the folds on both sides of the sculpture, where visitors can appreciate and experience the piece in its finer details.

“The aim of the design was to not detract from the tapestries themselves, whilst focusing the attention on ‘Transmission’. The challenge was to feature the installation as a centrepiece and connect it to the tapestries, to create an artistic ambiance. Whist ‘Transmission’ is the singular sculptural object in the room, it also invites visitors to experience the tapestries in a different way by framing elements of their compositions through the loops. The balance of the light projecting onto the centrepiece and tapestries helps to tie these pieces together to create an immersive art experience.”
Marci Song, Director, SEAM Design

The lighting makes the colours rich and vibrant, highlighting the gold thread detail that creates a beautiful undulating highlight of continual light along the top of the folds where a 2700k warm light level was implemented to work with the dimly lit, serenity and stillness of the Tapestry room. Providing a bespoke lighting solution that brings art to light, the installation sees the launch of the new, innovative Zero 150 Gallery Spotlight, which features no forward heat throw or UV rays. The design is entirely focussed on the installation and not the delicate tapestries where careful monitoring the ambient light levels is in place to ensure levels do not reach beyond 50 lux. The 15th century tapestries are priceless pieces of art, which are therefore sensitive to UV light. This design consideration was accommodated by using the best choice of spotlights and UV levels. Warming filters were also utilised to draw out the depth and richness of the colours and textures of the fabric to create a ‘light curtain’ across the folds of the sculpture. This accentuates the continuous ribbon that occupies the length of the Tapestry Room. The result is a balance between the lighting of the tapestries and lighting for the sculpture that creates an interaction between ‘Transmission’ and the tapestries, where the tapestries can be viewed in a new dimension. Sometimes their beauty and detail is overlooked, but the lighting design has brought a new way of viewing the pieces, showcasing the beautiful colours, textures and detail that invites the viewer to appreciate these aspects in a way that has gone unnoticed.
