Project description

Illuminated River is an ambitious public art commission which will transform London at night, lighting up to 15 bridges on the River Thames. Once complete, it will be the largest public art project in the world, seen over 130 million times each year.

We were selected as lighting supplier because of the extremely high quality of our IP67 rated fittings and the length of fitting we could manufacture.

240 fittings were used, each 2.3m long – a size that kept the number of lights needed to a minimum.

The fittings were supplied as plug-and-go sets, which are ideal for fast installation and easy maintenance.
