TM Lighting has partnered once again with Masterpiece London, the capital’s leading cross-collecting fair (27th June – 3rd July 2019), as art lighting specialists including lighting a series of major sculptures and installations using TM Lighting’s exceptional LED products.

The partnership follows a series of high-profile projects from TM Lighting including Historic Royal Palaces Hillsborough Castle, The Rothschild Foundation, The Wellington Collection at English Heritage Apsley House, Sotheby’s Old Masters Sale at Victoria Beckham’s Dover Street boutique, Mayfair, and Damien Hirst’s 24ft crystal encrusted ‘Pegasus’ at Brasserie of Light, Selfridges, London.

Monumental works of art located in walkways throughout the fair this year will be specially lit by TM Lighting. Curated by Jo Baring, Director of the Ingram Collection of Modern British & Contemporary Art, The Masterpiece London Sculpture Series 2019 will showcase dynamic modern and contemporary works by celebrated artists.
