LED Linear - The Best Installations 2018

LED linear has really had its year in 2018. It seems you cannot walk around London today and look up without seeing sharp lines of linear through glass-fronted offices. With the year ending soon, Synergy looks back at the best LED linear lighting installations the team have seen while out and about in the capital.

1. Victoria Place Shopping Centre, Victoria, London 

First up its a brilliant use of LED linear lighting at Victoria Place Shopping Centre in Victoria Station which makes extensive use of recessed linear, surface mounted linear and LED downlights arranged like stars on the ceiling. But that’s not the best bit. The stunning installations of rounded triangles combined with straight lines of LED linear (pictured below) is an incredible and inspiring installation. The handy work of Haskoll Architects and Hoare Lea

2. Burlington Arcade, Central London

This Hexagonal LED by A. C. Special Projects looks stunning with its fluid colour changing LED linear lights that tessellate Two PIR sensors are used to trigger colour changes at both ends of the arcade when someone walks through. Surface LED downlights neatly installed with steel conduit compliment the LED linear and provide the main area lighting. This linear installation is not only stunning it is technically very cool as well. The system runs via an astronomical clock that considers changes in daylight to ensure low maintenance.

3. Rainbow Tunnel, Knightsbridge

Socrates commissioned this fantastic rainbow lighting from DHA Designs for a construction tunnel proving that even temporary lighting can be cool. The non-too eco-friendly T5 fittings represent a sound wave and will be in place for the next 2 years. The picture below was taken this summer however with winter and dark nights on the way the tunnel has come into its own as a destination for photographers Check out The Knightsbridge Estates Instagram for some amazing photos.

4. American Century Investments, Covent Garden

American Century Investments secured a great Covent Garden building in 2017 and wanted to make an impact in their entrance area with a bespoke recessed LED linear installation that has a real wow factor. Modus Workspace delivered with this stunning complex linear installation which branches tree-like to reflect the American Century Investments logo. The LED linear tree seamlessly connects into continuous lengths of linear down the corridors and into meeting rooms. This bespoke LED linear installation was manufactured by Synergy Commercial Lighting, yes that’s us.

5. Nexus, City of London

Nexus Underwriting needed an Office-Fit-Out for their historic building at 52 Leadenhall Street, City of London. Peldon Rose created what must be the coolest office of 2018. Long lengths of LED linear light the stunning ground floor breakout space and they continue into the achingly cool mezzanine meeting room. The second floor mirrors the ground with LED linear suspended below an amazing original skylight. The team at Synergy have some serious office envy working on this project. Thanks to Peldon Rose for their kind permission to use these photos.
