The video below gives a short insight into what to expect upon her launch. Working with the collective creativity and knowledge of Carnival UK, David Collins Studio, Richmond International, Sybille de Margerie and Adam D.

dpa Oxfordshire decided to invest in solar panels as our large, steep-pitched, south-facing roof was ideal for an efficient installation. As well as hopefully being economically advantageous, we really liked the idea of reducing our Carbon Footprint. We decided not to have a battery but to sell back excess electricity as and when we produce more energy than required. Being an office generally occupied from 8 am to 7 pm, it is an ideal application. As you will see, we are delighted with our first full month’s results producing more electricity than we are consuming. Of course, we are now in the British Summer and results in the Winter will obviously not be the same, but we are very optimistic about this investment and the carbon emissions we have saved.

“Fourth Wall”, featured at the Darc Awards 2023 on 30th March at Fabric, London, was a collaboration between dpa lighting, ELR (Engineered Lighting Revolution) and Truelux. The fully immersive installation was designed to put the viewer in the place of their favourite actors by transporting them into some of the most iconically lit moments in film history by bathing the participant in various colour palettes from the rich history of the silver screen. The inspiration for the installation and for each ‘Scene’ came from different lighting techniques used throughout the history of cinematography to convey a wide-ranging sense of moods and emotions to the viewer. Unique layers of light were used to set the mood within the installation whilst specific colours, lighting angles and effects were tailored to each genre to set the scene for …Horror of the 1930’s …Hollywood Musicals …1920’s Film Noir …Science Fiction Movies …Classic Action Film.
