Ice House Square is a new urban square at the heart of the redevelopment of the docks in Swansea.

The £200m development programme is called SA1 and is funded by the Welsh Government and the private sector.

We were commissioned by Peter Fink of Form Associates to deliver his competition winning ideas for an interactive light based art work in the space. The individual luminaires are all manufactured in bespoke lengths and form a series of different shaped rooms working against the grain of a regular grid of trees.

Movement sensors are installed that detect the presence of visitors and animate the lighting in different patterns according to the ways in which people move through the new square. Designed using long life LED sources and with a robust digitally based control system, the scheme adds an elegance and dynamism that transforms the space after dark.
Our build materials for the luminaires were chosen to be robust and low key by day. We developed the luminaire as an evolution of our other bespoke products, from previous projects, to ensure easy management and low maintenance in a challenging and hard working urban environment.
