The Reform Club in Pall Mall one of London’s most celebrated private members’ clubs, was in need of a bespoke lighting restoration project to protect the artwork. This was never likely to be a straightforward project – as a Grade I building, the club is the subject of exacting conservation guidelines.
Working closely with Connected Light a new lighting specification was created for the space. Installing a series of multiple LED spotlights that cross-wash a total of 18 listed portraits, which lends a new level of illumination to these extraordinary paintings. The end result combines fixtures concealed on ledge areas, along with strategically-placed units for both up- and down-lighting. The LED luminaires are masterminded by a central, computer-based system that yields individual control of all light sources.
