Lloyds of London, fibre optic light fitting

Client: Richard Rogers Partnership, for Lloyds of London
Designers: Aaron Lawton and Peter Clarke

Developed to illuminate priceless treasures in ‘Nelsons Cabinet’ without introducing damaging heat from incandescent bulbs, these fittings took a fibre optic cable from a powerful remote halogen light source, and bounced it on to the artifacts. The matt black fittings emerge from a black velvet background, and virtually disappeared when seen from a normal viewing distance.
