We are currently awaiting delivery of light fittings from other suppliers to be able to commission a brand new LUTRON Lighting Control System for the main restaurant at the Mercure Hotel in Brisbane. The talented iLAB Lighting Designers kindly specified a smart LUTRON system for controlling all the light fittings included in their specification. Most of the fixtures are DALI driven and some circuits use phase dimming. Using two 16-zone DALI GrafiK-Eye QS and a slave ESN Adaptative phase dimmer, we were able to control the whole space with quite a lot less than 10K$.
We also supplied (on time...) a few OPAL LIGHTING downlight. We will be commissioning this project in the next week or so, so stay tuned for more photos!
From the Sydney Opera House to the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Sydney was awash with amazing lights and sounds. A record crowd attended braving the rain which at time was torrential. It was all good fun and The Milky Way attracted its fair share of attention with people coming all the way from France to admire it!

Go and have a look and discover the team, the project genesis and get the latest news from "The Milk Bar" blog. Fascinating!
And obviously we expect to see you in Kendall Lane from the 24th of May and up until June 10th.
A collective of young, emerging architects and designers create their VIVID Festival installation, The Milky Way. The humble milk crate's importance and use throughout the ages as a practical container is used to create an expression of art, thought and experimentation, communicated through this motion-lit sculpture suspended by steel wire cables.
Milk crates a part of our culture as much as the automobile or the iPhone, but somehow they have become insignificant to our consciousness, consistent with most things humans lack interaction in.
The purpose of the entry is to illuminate Kendle Lane and provide a spatial experience to the public with the neglected milk crate
The Sculpture is to be set suspended through the public alley, distributed by geometric pattern design and integrated with motion sensor lighting which will provide a unique interaction with the general public.
Archinterface is proud to be involved with Opal Lighting, Convergent Technologies/Lutron and the help of Vossloh Schwabe supplying the LED lighting strips, the control gear and the control system for this amazing lighting sculpture
Vivid runs between 24th of May - 10th of June
