1000 Companies to Inspire Britain

Wednesday, 09 March, 2016

Lucent Lighting identified in London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’

 

Lucent Lighting recognised in third edition of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report which Identifies fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) within the UK.

 Lucent Lighting is honored to have been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses.

 To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. More detail on the methodology can be found in the report online here   

 Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said:

“High growth SMEs are the driving force behind the UK economy, developing the skills, jobs and growth we need. But ambition alone is not enough; their success must be highlighted and their growth properly supported with appropriate finance. That’s why today’s event is so important: demonstrating the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.

“Today’s celebration is fundamental to London Stock Exchange’s core, the need to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and create an entrepreneurship revolution.”

 Writing in the publication, The Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP said:

“UK high-growth businesses are leading the charge in rebuilding our economy. These companies are the backbone of the British economy. They create high-quality, well paid jobs, innovate and drive economic growth. This government fully understands the need to support ambitious entrepreneurs and ensure they can access the finance they need to grow.

“We have held the steadfast belief that –alongside deficit reduction – nurturing entrepreneurs, creating jobs, supporting hard-working families and keeping taxes low would get the UK economy back on track. Our measures to increase access to finance for business and encourage more investment have had a transformative effect on our economy.”

Darc Night 2015

Thursday, 22 October, 2015

You may have heard about the new style of lighting design awards, the 'darc awards' which was brought to life by Mondo*arc Magazine in conjunction with Light Collective this year. Lucent Lighting was proud to be one of the sponsors of the event, which was held on the 24th September, 2015.

Sponsors were paired together in teams (manufacturer with lighting designer) and given the opportunity to create a light installation for the event using their products.

Lucent worked with Michael Grubb Studio (MGS) to create a 12 meter long installation titled 'The Source' for the back wall. 

The concept stemmed from the idea of celebrating ‘more than the downlight’ with particular emphasis placed on integral lighting and a hand-crafted construction process. We CNC a pattern of scaling triangles which were cast out from the circular ‘Source’ in the centre of the installation.

The Source was inspired by the definition of Lucent; glowing with or giving off light ‘the moon was lucent in the background’. We then used Artex to create a landscape texture which was side illuminated by the entire Lucent ProStrip Black range in it’s various formats.

   

We individually addressed the LEDs and created an animation which tied together with a projection. Both teams from Michael Grubb Studio and Lucent worked as one to construct the light installation and wire the 112 triangles back to the DMX drivers.

  

Both teams enjoyed exploring ideas and solutions and were proud to create something new and different and finding a use for Artex was one of our proudest moments at Michael Grubb Studio.

After a frantic two-day set up, everyone was glad to finally be able to stand back, grab a glass of champagne and enjoy the awards ceremony. 

Well done everyone for your amazing installations!

 

 

 

Lucent would also like to congratulate all the awards winners. This includes our installation team members Michael Grubb Studio for their work on the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin which placed 3rd in the 'Best Interior Lighting Project - High Budget' category. This project uses Lucent's ProSpex Pinhole Edge Accent fixtures with Xicato XSM 1300lm and ELDOLED DMX drivers.

Alexander Wang Flagship Store

Friday, 09 October, 2015

Alexander Wang has opened his largest flagship store to date in Albemarle Street, Mayfair. This 625sq meter store, spread across 4 floors was opened in early August this year and features Lucent lighting's Axis Midi Trimless fittings!

View this project on our website

The store presents all of Wang's Clothing, Accessories and Homeware collections and was designed by Wang himself and Architect Van Duysen. The design mimics Wang's dark minimal aesthetic style and makes reference to both modern and classic archetypes through the use of a restricted pallet and a range of textures and materials.

Wang and Duysen highlighted the long-standing structural elements of the old post office building where the store is located, by using a new surface treatments such as silver travertine stone and matt black recycled rubber.
