Science Museum adds new lighting installation

The Science Museum has updated its Making the Modern World gallery with a brand new lighting installation from AV experts White Light, as part of continual investment in its unique portfolio of event spaces.

As one of the museum’s flagship galleries, Making the Modern World features some of the museum’s most remarkable objects and is a one-of-a-kind setting for events, allowing clients access to artefacts such as the Apollo 10 command module and the first Apple computer.

The brand new lighting installation will streamline the experience for clients, allowing for shortened set-up times and a simplified process for event concepts including dinners, receptions and awards. The new offering will also enable clients organising an event in the gallery to make use of the lighting options to enhance their event.

Pioneering iPads featuring pre-recorded scenes, colours and lighting on different sections of the building’s architecture will be used to demonstrate the space’s potential to clients, as well as highlighting areas for food stations and bars.

Ben Lheureux at the Science Museum, said: “We are continually investing in and improving our event spaces to put the client experience first, and our new lighting installation by White Light does just this. We pride ourselves on our unique venue offering and delivering a streamlined production solution alongside the unique setting will open up the potential for clients looking to deliver stand-out events.”

Jason Larcombe, lighting designer at White Light, continues: “We are extremely proud of our long-standing relationship with the Science Museum; a partnership that has been further cemented with the Making the Modern World gallery. We listened closely to the team’s exact requirements and created a model which offers a rich and highly flexible system with new sales potential”.
