Together with architect Herzog & de Meuron and M&E Consultants Hoare Lea a full portfolio of luminaires from WILA Lighting was developed to compliment The Blavatnik School of Government building's curved circular form. The Blavatnik School of Government is a new building located in the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter in Oxford.
LED luminaires, all of which are circular in their design, have been utilised throughout the building creating a stunningly simple and modern ambience. WILA designed and manufactured a large percentage of the luminaires, customising a standard WILA luminaire to meet the architectural brief. The largest of the LED luminaires is the Halo Pendant with a diameter of 650 mm which produces up to 3675 Llm of 4000 K light with a direct/indirect distribution, achieving up to 112 Llm/W.
The cellular office spaces located around the perimeter of the upper floors include the Halo surface mount luminaire. Through discussion with the project team this luminaire evolved in design from the original WILA Flat Light luminaire and utilises the low glare Micro-prismatic optic. Although the luminaires have 90% DLR, they also feature an indirect element giving added visual interest to the installation.
