Highly efficient GLOS lighting from FUTURE Designs has been installed at 22 Bishopsgate, the tallest skyscraper in the City of London that has been developed by Lipton Rogers Developments for AXA IM
FUTURE Designs, the international manufacturer of luminaires and bespoke lighting solutions, has completed the office lighting for 22 Bishopsgate, the tallest tower in the City of London, standing at 278 metres high. The project is developed and managed by AXA IM – Real Assets on behalf of an international consortium of investors, with Lipton Rogers Developments retained as developer.
FUTURE Designs has provided the 1.4 million sq ft (130,000 sqm) development, set to be Europe’s first vertical village, with GLOS, a contemporary and minimalist luminaire that results in a perfectly illuminated environment. This linear recessed luminaire was developed in conjunction with HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt and 22 Bishopsgate’s architects PLP.
GLOS is highly efficient with a lumen per watt value of 157, whilst the careful design ensures the fixtures could be installed in a simple manner reducing install time. GLOS’ minimalist form compliments any workspace or environment with its design based on a homogeneous light across its surface. Its simple in its design which means its simple to install.
The new skyscraper is a complex, 22 sided, faceted glass structure. The design is built and managed to satisfy the changing nature of the City of London in terms of the type, size and priorities of companies based there, including demands for high standards of technology and sustainability.
