There is a certain privilege and responsibility in being involved in the illumination of a national collection of historical treasures.
Over the past number of years, ECI were immensely proud to work closely with the Office of Public Works on the lighting upgrade in the National Museum of Ireland, Decorative Arts and History at Collins Barracks.
This former military barracks is home to two priceless collections; Decorative arts which encompasses silver, ceramics, glassware, furniture, clothing, jewellery and coins while the military history collection tells of Ireland’s military and revolutionary past.
ECI Max Dimmable spotlights, complete with 38 degree beam angle and Bridgelux COB LED chip, were used extensively throughout the project to provide exceptional colour quality and superior performance.
The Concord Beacon Muse track spot was also widely used for its adjustable 10- 60 degree beam angle without the need for additional reflectors.
One of the most inspired choices of luminaire on this project was the Ares Melrie semi-circular uplight which blends seamlessly with the existing architecture of an arched walkway, expertly highlighting the historic vaulted ceiling and guiding visitors from one building to another.
