Lighting consultant Nulty, which was involved in this month’s lighting feature (p28) were also responsible for Samsung’s new retail experience store at Thomas Heatherwick’s Coal Drops Yard at London’s King’s Cross. Sitting directly beneath his ‘kissing’ rooftops, the design envisioned a day-to-night lighting scheme for the 1900m2 space that capitalised on Heatherwick’s structural gymnastics. 

The firm came up with a ‘ribbon of light’ concept, linking the two halves of the space beneath the mirrored roof forms and running along floors, walls and ceiling.
