Spectral creates modern ‘chandelier’ lighting approach

These LED-based ‘chandeliers’ were created by Spectral Lighting to replace classic candelabra-style luminaires in the Victoria Rooms campus at the University of Bristol. They use Spectral’s H-profil system to provide the required lighting levels and a sensitive aesthetic suited to the building’s decor and befitting its history.

Opened in 1842, the Victoria Rooms served as an important centre for culture in the west of England. They later became the university’s music department. They now house the central library and still function as an auditorium.

Staff at the university were reluctant to install new lighting fittings, wary that they might not blend with the traditional features and architecture. The stringent demands of English Heritage also had to be met.

The resulting chandeliers use 15 W point-source LED modules combined with facetted aluminium Pablo reflectors to create the desired low-glare light effect.
