Nobel Biocare: EuroPerio 2015

Project Overview

  • Lighting Designer Owen Pritchard-Smith from Spirit Design approached Dom Sheerman at Blinding Light about an exhibition lighting project he was undertaking for Andreas Messerli AG and dental implant manufacturer Nobel Biocare.
  • Blinding Light supplied lighting , rigging and power distribution to Owen’s brief and design, this included Daylight MSR Pars, ETC Source 4s and Truss and motors.
  • Part of the exhibition stand design which was to appear at EuroPerio 2015 at ExCeL London, included some open topped, material light boxes. The brief was to light these boxes from above, letting enough light travel through the material to light the bar area underneath.
  • With only a metre or so between the truss and the material Owen needed to find a fixture with a very wide beam angle and little or no hot spot. It also needed to be bright enough to stand out against the general house lighting in ExCeL and the MSR PARs around the rest of the stand.
  • With the help from Dom, Owen tried and tested many different luminaires, but as he said: "none of them ticked all the boxes for what I required". That was, however, until Blinding Light tracked down a Q-7 W with its cool white flood of LED light for him to test: "As soon as I powered it up, I knew it was exactly what I needed for the job", he says.
  • Blinding Light supplied 16 Q-7 Ws, which were mounted in the rig for a perfect result. The Nobel Biocare stand appeared in its pure, clean and white atmosphere suitable for a professional and innovative dental technology supplier.
  • With a beam angle of 110° and an output of 60,000 lumen, the Q-7 W lit the material box, through to the area underneath with ease.
