Office Reception Area, Finsbury Square, London

We were asked to supply lighting to a wall in the reception area of this central London office building as the client wanted an eye-catching and modern design suitable for this refurbished office block. The illuminated feature wall is made up of 14 floor-to-ceiling panels of laminated glass behind which we installed panels of Prismex and each panel was edgelit with white LEDs. The colour-changing effect was achieved by laminating dichroic film on to the glass panels – dichroic film is a “mirror” film, which gives the appearance of changing colour as one walks past it. Each panel is set at an angle against the next one so that each panel appears slightly different from its neighbour when moving past it. The client also wanted the new reception desk to be illuminated in a single colour. The reception desk was made of slabs of black marble on the top with glass panels across the front of it. Again, we installed Prismex panels behind the glass and edgelit the panels with white LEDs. The whole effect creates a cutting-edge feature in this refurbished office reception area and as the entrance way to this office building is glass, it can be see by passers-by and looks just as stunning at night.
