Sky Skills Studios, London
The Skills Studios consist of four fully functioning TV studios, situated around a central area. Spanlite were commissioned to create and install the egde-lit glass feature. Each panel, including the doors, is able to change colours – specifically to match the background colours in Sky’s logo, via specially adapted aluminium glazing channels that house RGBA LEDs.
The glass was printed with a white ceramic ink dot pattern, to highlight the colour near the edges of the glass, and to depict the name of each Studio on the corresponding door. Control of the LEDs is managed via DMX.
The result is a dazzling success – a dynamic feature at the heart of the design aesthetic. Each Studio can be colour-coded via the glazing, or all the panels can be set to a particular colour, or they can be set to change colour at the touch of a button.
