Lighting Design International – Shortlisted for LuxLive 2017 retail category
 

Lighting Design International (LDI) has put together a lighting scheme that reflects the name of the Milton Keynes Sunset Walk shopping mall, which is 1km long and 116m wide, and houses more than 200 stores.

The refurbishment by British architects Rawls & Co covered just under a quarter of the overall circulation of the mall.

It was important for the final lighting scheme to provide a touch of glamour and to make it a destination within the centre. LDI paid special attention to entrance atriums and decorative elements, to provide a strong visual presence to entice shoppers.

Gold finished geometric ‘kites’ were proposed by the architect and these structures are uplit from bespoke track spotlights, providing high contrast 2700K lighting, enhancing the rich gold finish and contrasting with the 3000K general illumination.

An array of large Moooi Raimond pendants were also used to provide sparkle and reflection against the gold finish of the ‘kites’ and polished beaten metal ceiling panels.

The kites lead the visitor from the high ceiling atrium through to the lower ceiling mall, where their golden tone is echoed in the bespoke mirrored gold hexagonal ceiling lights. A total of 960 hexagon lights were installed throughout the mall, to lead the customer through the newly refurbished areas, while providing uplight and downlight along with visual interest to the space.

The hexagons were developed by LDI in conjunction with Mike Stoane Lighting, and come in three styles; 180mm deep uplighting only, 80mm deep uplighting only and 180mm uplighting and downlighting.
