A futuristic feature
LED and solar-powered lighting systems specialist Zeta, in association with leading sign manufacturer Tara Signs, created a cost-effective futuristic LED lighting feature wall for a newly refurbished office building at an industrial park in Maidenhead, Berkshire.
One of the key architectural-led design elementsof the refurbishment was the inclusion of a colour-changing feature wall at the back of the building’s reception area and the creation of a similar effect on the reception area front desk. A combination of Zeta’s expertise in LED technology and Tara Signs’ specialist sign manufacturing knowledge enabled the two companies to recommend an alternative solution to the client’s original plan to use an expensive acrylic substrate featuring an embedded pattern. As a result, the cost of the LED lighting feature was reduced by over £10,000.
Tara Signs created an innovative four x two metre fabric-covered installation with a Novatec light box fitted with Zeta’s RGB embedded LED panels. The feature wall is equipped with four DMX controllers that provide access to over 2,000 colour options. The wall has also been made future proof by providing the building’s tenants with the opportunity to add a company logo or new background to the skin whenever they wish, without the need for any additional technical support.
The second stage of the project included the creation of a similar colour-changing feature on the front desk. Five-metre x one-metre opal polycarbonate panels featuring a digital print pattern were treated with a UV laminate and backlit with Zeta’s RGB embedded LED panels that were controlled via three DMX controllers to work harmoniously together in conjunction with the feature wall.
The result was an impactful and customisable interior design feature as well as lower energy bills and carbon emissions.
