Custom chandelier designed and manufactured by Lighthouse Lighting supplier in Spain, for restored Isaac Theatre Royal
It's not just the performances that make a night out at the Isaac Theatre Royal a memorable experience – it's also the setting, which is made all the more spectacular by the glittering chandeliers and mood lighting.
Lighthouse Lighting was contracted to supply and assist in the selection of all the internal light fixtures. These included downlights and service lighting, the custom pillar lights and large gold pendants on the exterior, and the custom-designed chandeliers in the lobby and theatre.
Stephen Hermens, lighting designer and manager of Lighthouse Lighting in Christchurch, says the company was faced with a number of challenges, but worked closely with the electrical engineer to meet the architect's requirements.
"We were given a brief and a concept design for the lobby chandelier from Warren and Mahoney, which we forwarded to our main supplier in Spain. The chandelier was of paramount importance, so we were delighted when the company came back with a perfect design."
Hermens says energy efficiency was another important consideration. LED lighting was used wherever possible to meet this brief.
"LED lighting also has a low heat output, but still maintains high illumination and provides a warm, inviting ambience."
