Zuccotti Park, once used as a staging area for the recovery efforts after the September 11 attacks, and the campground for Occupy Wall Street protesters, is decorated with beautiful white lights during the holidays. The park is also illuminated with lights built into the ground. It is located between Broadway, Trinity Place, Liberty Street and Cedar Street, just across from 4 World Trade Center.

This modern family house has two highlights, which proved to be a special lighting challenge: heart of the house is an over all floors leading, 8-meter-high wall of water. To visually underline the effect of the gently flowing water, LIGHT ON used LED strips in a stainless steel profiles from top and bottom, illuminating the wall with linear grazing light. Another ambitious solution was developed for the bar made of onyx stone. To make the colorfully drawn, translucent stone work optimally, the entire bar was backlit with VarioLED ™ Flex HYDRA HD25. The niches in the bathroom and a spiral staircase are illuminated by lighting fixtures of the VENUS family.

KOVR – Wall and Ceiling Integrated Lighting
‘HYDE’ by KOVR: A Smooth Combination of Decor Elements and Lighting
Designed by Danny Venlet for KOVR, ‘HYDE’ high-quality panels are a reworked concept of conventional luminaries into an “all-in-one solution”: a seamlessly integrated LED lighting system into printed architectural surfaces. The HYDE range comes in distinctive natural decors. The remote control and mobile application complete the unique user experience. The system adapts harmoniously to any mood with its easily controllable light intensity.
Hyde – Fully Customizable
HYDE is not just another off-the-shelf product: the system can be perfectly tailored to any part of it’s features. The customer defines the panel size, the KOVR team digitally prints any desired decor onto the surface and programs a specific lighting scheme into it.
Easy Mounting and Wireless Control
Designed and assembled in Belgium, the system comes with high luminary efficiency, a long lifespan and color fastness over time. The complete lighting system is mounted inside the panels, that have a thickness of only 12mm.
The assembly or dismounting can easily be done by (dis)connecting the panels from the tongue and groove system. Finally, it is linked to a personalized mobile application. The application makes control possible from any device with browser or via the mobile app.

39 Victoria Street, London, United Kingdom
The refurbishment of this key building in Victoria involved the relighting of the main office floors with low energy lighting and the creation of an impressive new entry experience.
A special canopy feature was developed with integrated lighting built-in to visually link the interior spaces to the external streetscape. A series of canter-lever arms extend through the interior lobby and are brought together to form a canopy at the entry point on the streetscape. Adjustable lighting offers the facility for varying coloured presentations. Whilst a set colour balance is used at most times in a static mode, for special occasions the colours, tone and brightness can be set to different levels.
The lighting controls utilise the DMX protocol which in this project is on a wireless network, due to the complex nature of the building and the tight voids which precluded traditional cable ways to be threaded through the structure.
