Project: Cinémathèque Québécoise
Aug 11, 2009
Lightemotion, the Montreal firm specialized in lighting design, completed the architectural lighting as well as the light signature of the Cinémathèque Québécoise in Montreal.
Lightemotion literally drew the contours of the glass catwalk with blue light, not only to underline the dynamic shape, but to give as well the illusion to passers-by to see a suspended light box in mid-air. By hiding all light sources in the building’s architecture, the designers succeeded in creating a halo of light that remains subtle and at the same time sufficiently visible to serve as a light beam in the middle of the night.
The lighting solution employs Lighting Paradise LED screens; Philips ColorGraze Powercore used both indoors and outdoors; some Ruud Lighting Micro Floods and Shreder LEDs. Inside, LED spotlights hidden behind heat radiators slide along the metallic window posts to fade away on the ceiling.
“We wanted to create a scenario with moving lights, to create a metaphor of moving images which is what cinema and video represents,” explained François Roupinian, the founding President of Lightemotion.
