This truly stunning and inspirational example of lighting design in Burgas, Bulgaria became a global project. The project was designed by renowned international lighting designer, Tapio Rosenius (Lighting Design Collective), project managed by KerenOr Lighting in Israel and manufactured by Kemps Architectural Lighting in Leeds. We were able to deliver the full lighting package under extremely tight deadlines, something which made the project all the more impressive.
Following two on-site mock-ups by Kemps in the depths of a freezing Bulgarian winter, Lighting Design Collective specified over 4km of Kemps' Coveline Cold Cathode system (KL-CLN-EMD100) to backlight the Barrisol coloured bands of light throughout the newest mall in Bulgaria.
Using exciting and vibrant colours such as Traffic Light Yellow, Lavender, Orange and Saffron, the cold cathode has created a visually arresting effect and a very warm, inviting space where people can relax as they shop. With a lamplife in excess of 50,000hrs, cold cathode was the perfect solution to creating this vibrant and seamless colour.
Cold cathode was used in the coves throughout the mall for in-direct lighting to contrast the Barrisol features and we also supplied over 800m of Kemps' K-Light Module RGB LED system.
Working closely with project managers, KerenOr Lighting (Israel), and electrical contractors, Electra (Israel), we were also contracted to supply the main bulk of the lighting package for this mall, along with other specified fittings from Lucent and Weef.
As part of our collaboration with Lighting Design Collective, their founder and design director was quick to comment: ''Kemps Architectural Lighting jumped into a complex, large scale and fast track project with great attitude and resources. Their skills and determination ensured timely and high quality supply of the required lighting technology to our client and helped greatly to achieve a successful realisation of our design'' - Tapio Rosenius, Lighting Design Collective.
Not only was this project completed to aesthetic brilliance, but we were also able to meet the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold rating requirement for sustainability and reduction of light pollution.
