When reconstructing the Theatre Usher Hall in Edinburgh architects are faced with the need to create lighting for a huge spiral staircase. They created quite effective and elegant solution to this, and they called it “Single shaft of light”.
They have created an unusual chandelier «Single shaft of light», which has become an ideal solution for lighting the spiral staircase of the theater. After all, it is a single illuminant, it is very economical in terms of energy consumption, but at the same time illuminating every square inch of the stairs.
Usher Hall Theatre unique staircase
“Single shaft of light’ does not have hundreds of bulbs, unlike the other trimmings that are used for lighting in large indoor spaces. It actually did not like any light bulb. Yes, and the size of it is many times smaller than the classical chandelier. In Spiers+Major, is created a single glowing pole, which hangs along a twisted ladder from the top down, which combines fluorescent elements and LEDs.
This combination finally gives a very bright and very natural white light that penetrates even the most remote cubbyhole ladder of Space Theatre Edinburgh Usher Hall. And, moreover, electricity consumption is several times less than if the same light is received from filament lamp.
