"Kenwood House, Hampstead, London (top image): The TM MasterLight illuminates Kenwood House's historic collection. Nestled near Hampstead Heath, the house, built in the 17th century, was gifted to the nation in 1927, along with Lord Iveagh's 63 Old Master paintings. With museum-grade lighting and high colour rendition, the TM MasterLight illuminates the collection’s masterpieces, including Rembrandt's Self-Portrait with Two Circles and Vermeer’s The Guitar Player, with precise and even illumination.

The Arts Club, Dover Street, London (gallery image 1): Custom TM ZeroSixty Spotlights bring to light the Ofelia Lounge at The Arts Club in London. Finished in antique brass, our TM ZeroSixty spotlights feature an interchangeable lensing system, enabling precise artwork illumination tailored to the rotating exhibitions on display. With high colour rendition, these spotlights accurately represent every shade and tone in each artwork.  

English Country Estate, Private Residence (gallery image 2): Collaborating with interior designer Sims Hilditch, we supplied our TM Goodwood Picture Lights to illuminate a collection of newly restored family portraits. Featuring a classical mid-size hood for enhanced glare control, the TM Goodwood is perfect for tall canvases and well-suited for heritage settings and art collections.

Vesper Bar at the Dorchester Hotel (gallery image 3): We were specified with Martin Brudnizki Design Studio to illuminate the Vesper Bar at the Dorchester Hotel, an icon of the London hotel scene. The TM Classic Picture Light, with its heritage styling, proved to be the perfect complement to The Dorchester’s timeless interiors. This picture light not only enhances the ambiance but also addresses the specific needs of the artworks on display. The hood’s depth contributes to optimal lighting while efficiently controlling glare from other light sources throughout the space, making it ideal for rooms illuminated by natural light. Directly behind the bar, we introduced the TM Solo Picture Light, which brought a touch of elegance to the circular artwork on display. This picture light not only illuminates the artwork but also adds a decorative element, enhancing the overall atmosphere of the space.

Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London (gallery image 4): Art has played a central role in Andrew Lloyd Weber’s RIBA award-winning refurbishment of Theatre Royal Drury Lane. The art collection includes Pre-Raphaelite works by Edward Burne-Jones, modern scenes of London by Edward Kerr-Lawson and contemporary Shakespearian scenes by Maria Kreyn. The collection is lit with our TM Classic Picture Light and ZeroThirty Accent Lights. Spotlights discreetly illuminate statues of famous playwrights in the rotunda and Shakespearian scenes along the staircase, aiming to place the spotlit figures ‘centre stage’ as if in performance.  

The Penthouse at the OWO, London (gallery image 5): TM SlimLight Pro Picture Lights illuminate a collection of contemporary artworks at the OWO’s newly designed penthouse. This high-performance picture light complements the modern interior while respecting the OWO's historical context. Offering the same optical performance as larger picture lights, the SlimLight Pro's sleek, compact design seamlessly integrates into the modern domestic setting. 

L’Ecurie at Dorfold Hall (gallery image 6): Collaborating with architect Zoë Polya-Vitry, we contributed to the RIBA award-winning revitalisation of L’Ecurie at Dorfold Hall. Polya-Vitry's vision was to merge the architectural heritage of the disused stables with a modernisation of its interiors, creating a contemporary event suite. Our luminaires blend contemporary lighting techniques with the venue’s traditional aesthetics. TM ZeroSixty Accent Lights, custom-finished in gold to complement existing brass details, are discreetly installed on a concealed recessed track system, allowing the architectural design to stand unimpeded. At eye-level, the original brickwork is illuminated by our TM Linear Graze. Attached to L’Ecurie is the newly converted Tack Room, which takes on the feel of a modern New York City loft with its striking sleek grey interiors that are complemented by TM Lighting’s suspended MainsTrack which was left exposed and painted black to engage in a dynamic contrast with the space. The interiors are entirely lit using TM’s GalleryOneThirty Spotlights creating a balance between artificial light and the natural light coming through the room’s porte-fenêtre windows.

Cox, Pimlico Road, London (gallery image 7): We brought to light Cox London, a one-of-a-kind atelier specialising in contemporary furniture. Their showroom features a collection of handcrafted, sculptural pieces. Our TM ZeroSixty Spotlights with high colour rendition (98+CRI) accurately reveal each piece’s details, materials, finishes and patinas. Mounted on TM ArtTrack and TM ArtPoints, this lighting system offers adaptability and versatility, perfect for evolving displays in galleries, museums, and showrooms.
