With LEDS C4, lighting is about a whole lot more than flicking a switch, it can makes a statement, and it can alter a space. The lighting installation in The Angel Gardens, does both. The Angel Gardens apartments are located in one of the newest areas of Manchester and they’ve been designed with the aim of establishing a new way of sharing the spaces we live in. The building was constructed in the area of the former Shudehill Mill owned by Richard Arkwright, the first steam-operated mill in Manchester, built in 1782. All of the building’s interior is inspired by the history emanating from every corner of this place. Choosing the Candle collection to light up its spaces was no accident: this collection was selected given its similitude with old cotton looms. These light fixtures are excellent choices based on their delicate appearance and their ability to generate warm, natural settings.

The lighting laboratory in Vic, promoted by Miquel Boada, founder of the distributor Boada, was built in collaboration with LEDS C4 which, in addition to providing products, also offered advice during the design of the facility. The laboratory opened its doors in February this year, inviting four prestigious artists (all specialising in sculpting and acrylic painting) from the region to experiment with the impact of lighting on their work.

Thanks to an innovative installation of Atom spotlights that was specially designed for the occasion, using LED Tunable White and Casambi built into the luminaire, and the development of a specific application to assure easy handling through a tablet, the colour temperature and light intensity can be easily adjusted to suit the work and the colours or finishes to be highlighted. The installation’s control possibilities are endless, enabling the user to select a full range of tones from 2700K to 6500K, as well as adjusting light intensity. The system allows different settings to be created depending on the artists and works, ensuring a visit to the space is truly experiential.
