Paddington Central Welcomes Its First Ever Light Installation

Paddington Central Welcomes Its First Ever Light Installation

Chords of Light was created by one of the most innovative design engineering studios in the world.

Paddington Central, the busy work and social hub will be turned into a hybrid environment combining the virtual and physical from 25 November until 6 January 2020.

The Amphitheatre in Sheldon Square is set to be transformed into a spectacle of light, colour and movement. The light installation, Chords of Light, is a fully immersive lighting design by London-based design studio Tangent.

The contemporary sculptural Christmas Tree is composed of the latest optical lens technology and the world’s first ‘gol-coloured LED from Stanley Electric Co. 32 individual spotlights will light up the tree from around the Amphitheatre making the installation an imaginative and unique design. The Chords of Light installation will also delight visitors with an astonishing real-time light animation that is produced when someone uses the hashtag #PaddingtonCentral on Instagram.

Paddington Central Estate Director, Rob Stickland shares his enthusiasm for the installation saying: “Having showcased Tangent’s first major solo exhibition earlier this year as part of the Paddington Central Design Route during London Design Festival we are delighted to welcome them back. Chords of Light will be a vibrant installation which is sure to enliven the area for the people who live and work here, as well as attracting audiences from afar.”
