Architects A&D Wejchert needed Stainless Steel bespoke lighting to compliment the Award winning Building at the Helix Performing Arts centre located on the Dublin City University campus. The 12,000 sqm building includes a concert hall, theatre, and exhibition area.
Working with local lighting manufacturer ‘VeeLite’, some 5 Stainless Steel ‘Specials’ were manufactured to order. Both the conical columns and the conical Luminaires were produced in Stainless Steel. The luminaire is IP65 rated and with an efficient reflector system. Removable brackets and banners were supplied for maximum user flexibility. The light type used for this project was Metal Halide; however today it would be 70w or 30w LED that would be used.
This unique architectural conical stainless steel light is suitable for a wide range of commercial or social environments including theatres, corporate buildings, hotels, offices, churches, etc. Streetlight/asymmetric or symmetric optics are available and there is an occupancy sensor option, so that the lighting can be switched off (or to low output) when there is no pedestrian traffic nearby. This would help to reduce energy and running costs. Other options include RAL colours (blasted finish on stainless steel as standard) and photocell.
As seen below, the luminaire is side entry mounted on a 60mm diameter pole. Wall version is also available on request. Different mounting options, lamp types, finishes, and energy saving options make this luminaire possible to adapt to a variety of settings.
