• Lighting up the staircase, the Spiers + Major way

    Here’s what you get when Spiers + Major set out to light up a staircase. Invited to light up the Usher Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland’s top historic art venue, Spiers + Major were faced with the challenge of lighting up the spiral staircase as well. And they did it well! By concealing all the wiring and electrical equipment for the lighting, the architectural integrity of the building has been kept intact. Taken that the spiral staircase has cylindrical, concrete walls, concealing all the lighting was somewhat of a task. Also, a 13.8m chandelier was used using lengths of fluorescent tubes encased within double acrylic cylinders.


    All in all, a spiral staircase has never been so well lit before, and we just cant stop admiring the work done by Spiers + Major.
