The Swirling Walkway

To create drama while not overwhelming guests, the lighting needed to create a sense of space, curate visitor traffic flow, and perfectly illuminate the 32 beautifully designed bathroom vignettes in the showroom. Architects Coppin Dockray and lighting designers from Lightplan chose Soraa LED lamps because of their unique ability to deliver narrow beams and perfect rendering of colors and whiteness. Specifically, Lightplan chose 635 of Soraa’s MR16 LED lamps mounted within Prospex® Spot Midi 2100-MR-SP fixtures from Lucent®, a Works With Soraa partner. The Prospex die-cast aluminium fixtures come with integral control gear and their adjustable heads accept up to two accessories held behind an anti-glare snoot.

Visitors are guided through the Crosswater showroom space by a stunning “swirling walkway” of approximately 5,800 hand-blown glass spheres that hang from the ceiling and are perfectly illuminated by Soraa’s LED lamps. Because Soraa LED lamps cast strong, narrow beams from a small source, Lightplan was able to spotlight the beautiful glass spheres without light spilling over onto merchandise displays – even as a control system creates a moving effect among the baubles.

“Soraa lighting makes the journey through the showroom a sensory experience for visitors. Because Soraa LED lamps provide a high intensity beam from a small source, we were able to create perfect, focused lighting on the fixtures and objects on display in each of the 32 uniquely appointed bathroom display areas. The snap on attachments, spreader lenses, are great tools to shape the light beam for a particular object preventing any spillage,” said Baris Gursen, lighting designer with Lightplan in London.
