"The Charterhouse, Barbican, London (top image): Many of the paintings are over two metres in height, and during daylight hours, without picture lights, the artworks were dark and obscured by window reflections. The Slim Light Pro helps to minimise the reflections from daylight in the canvas, while bringing life and warmth into the paintings. It sits on the contemporary side of our picture light range, however can disappear into both heritage and classical settings.

Brasserie of Light, Selfridges, London (gallery image one): We provided specialist Gallery One Fifty art lighting to highlight the centrepiece, a 24ft encrusted Pegasus statue by Damien Hirst, within the Art Deco destination restaurant. The GalleryOneFifty is a high-performance track-mounted art light developed specifically for use within areas featuring high ceilings, typically found in galleries, museums and contemporary spaces.

Private Residence, London (gallery image two): We installed a selection of our TM Lighting Slim Light Pros in an antique bronze finish featuring a custom anti-glare hood. The lights blend seamlessly into the overall feature while providing precisely illuminating each of the artworks. The elegance of this scheme is in its simplicity; providing a grandiose space with a much-needed focal point.

Private Residence, London (gallery image three): A beautiful contemporary picture lighting option is the TM Lighting LED Slim Light Pro. We used a customised Slim Light Pro finished with antique bronze and mounted with a customised wall bracket. It highlights the rich colours within the large-scale photographic artwork whilst providing even light distribution.

Apsley House, London (gallery image four): Our TM Lighting Classic Picture Lights have been used to illuminate artworks throughout the house including the Waterloo Gallery to ensure true colour accuracy and bring the paintings to life, while providing warmth and a balance of light in the rooms. This image of the Waterloo Gallery demonstrates how even within a dense hang, these picture lights disappear into the background allowing the artworks to take centre stage. 

Hyperion Art Collection, Creechurch Place, London (gallery image five): Zero Sixty ArtPoints were installed throughout, which have interchangeable lenses, provide a focussed concentration of light to specific pieces and are suitable for taller ceiling heights in galleries, commercial spaces and private residences. The ArtPoint mounting system provides the flexibility of a track and spotlight system with the discreet minimalist design of a surface-mounted accent light.

Private Residence, London (gallery image six): High Colour Rendition LED Downlights beautifully highlight the rich colours within the paintings and the golds within the gilded frames."
