As Dezeen's article on Il Gattopardo restaurant quotes: "Soft lighting is diffused through fabric resting between the ceiling beams, which was designed to mimic a sunset. An illuminated onyx bar adds to the warm lighting scheme."

Christian Liaigre Tribute
Christian Liaigre 1943 - 2020 I want to pay a very personal tribute to Christian Liaigre who passed a week ago. I have known and worked with Christian for many many years. He was an artistic inspiration and a true design master. His minimalist elegance his perceptual artistry his attention to excellence and his ability to create remarkable environments were a gift to his clients and to those of us who were fortunate enough to work with him Christian was an icon a visionary influencing both his contemporaries and the up and coming generation of designers. His work has been in my opinion incredibly important and timeless in its impact.In the years I knew him and collaborated with him I learned a lot from him in his ability to distill things to its essence and achieve a simplicity in the design that was elegant and sophisticated.Along with being a great artist, Christian was a great friend. I cherished my friendship with him. My heartfelt condolences to his loved ones and his design colleagues in his wonderful firm. I know they will continue his work and his legacy.Rest in peace Christian. All of us at Isometrix are thankful for the relationship and friendship we had with you and your teams. You will be missed but never forgotten. Arnold Chan
Pace Gallery in New York
As Dezeen's article on the gallery accurately quotes: "The building has been designed as an integrated and dynamic space for artists, collectors, curators, gallery-goers and Pace's international team alike".The lighting scheme was designed by our London studio with a focus on making it as adaptable as possible to fit the dynamic nature of the space, whilst maintaining a complex level of control over both light levels and color temperature and keeping it all discrete and hidden from view.

Antony Gormley Exhibition at the Royal Academy
Isometrix were delighted to be a part of the lighting collaboration for the Antony Gormley Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. Working directly with Antony, the design brief was to use daylight to maximum potential. When daylight is not an option, to achieve homogeneous shadowless lighting throughout the exhibition that will allow the sculptures to shine without any light being shone directly on them. The RA's architecture and massive skylights were instrumental in achieving this goal but they were also the source for some of the project’s greatest challenges. Building a 156 sq meter skylight is a challenge in itself but making it completely comply with the brief, meant there were even more obstacles to overcome. The 13m x 12m custom built skylight (pictured above) for "Clearing VII " allows natural light to flood the space during the day and evenly lights it up when daylight becomes insufficient. For other spaces, track lights with special optics were used to create wall washes that blend seemingly with natural light, tacitly engulfing the space in thousands of lumens of warm white light. We are passionate about light and its ability to enhance the special flow of a building and we could go on writing about it indefinitely. There are no amount of words or images that can truly describe the experience of the meeting of great architecture, good lighting and the work of an amazing artist such Antony Gormley.
