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.
