The FX awards celebrate world-class design excellence and the very best interior projects and products. Studio Fractal and its exceptional lighting design for the Royal Opera House have been shortlisted in the Lighting Product Category.
Studio Fractal specified Architainments linear LED solution, Architape, into the refurbished building, and it has been used to illuminate the Bow Street façade of the historic building. The illumination of the building’s exterior is part of a more inviting and community-focused approach of the Royal Opera House, which for the first time in its history will now be open to the public during the day.
It’s fantastic news that the team at Studio Fractal have been shortlisted in these respected awards for their outstanding work at the Royal Opera House. Architainment Lighting is proud to have supported Studio Fractal in this successful project and played a part in the overall completion of this stunning lighting scheme.Nic Tolkien, Architainment Lighting Managing Director

The Royal Opera House
One of London’s most iconic and recognisable architectural feats, the Royal Opera House, has recently unveiled the grand results of its £50 million rejuvenation project.
The building, found in the heart of Covent Garden, has been transformed from what was once seen as an elitist setting to become a welcoming and inviting space for the local community. Designed to be a key player in the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden rather than simply on the side-lines, the Royal Opera House will now be open to the public during the day for the first time in its history.
Award winning lighting designers Studio Fractal were appointed to create and deliver the lighting design for the refurbishment. The team of designers chose Architainment to supply a wealth of products from across their range, which were used for a variety of elements of the revamped building.
Architainment provided linear LED solutions for the coving of the structure, both internally and externally. To illuminate the colonnade, Lumascape and Philips Color Kinetics were selected, while Ecosense and Architape were used to light the Bow Street façade.
