Customised LED lighting fixtures from Gantom Lighting & Controls have been used in revamped galleries at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

The fixtures illuminate both the historic dioramas and the display cases of the First World War Galleries, which re-opened to the public in December 2014, and are part of a new lighting design by Benjamin Cisterne.

Gantom president Quan Gan said the company had seen a steady increase in usage of the company’s lighting products among museums and exhibits, attributing this to their “modularity and versatility”.

Lighting the dioramas called for fixtures that combined theatricality with durability, according to Cisterne. “My background is in theatre design and one of the things that people come to me for is to bring something of that to museums – not just to illuminate the objects but to employ a level of interpretation in the design,” he said.

“The Gantom fixtures enabled us to focus and colour a theatrical scene for each [diorama] that has reference to place and time of day, and conveys the mood of the imagery. Two of the dioramas have digital backdrops that cycle through a timed sequence. The Gantom fixtures allowed us to create dynamic lighting effects for those scenes.”

The new diorama lighting uses 120 Gantom DMX Dynamic White Flood and 120 Gantom DMX RGBW Flood fixtures. The display cases use more than 1,000 Gantom Precision Z Spot and Flood fixtures ranging from 3,000K to 4, 000K with custom glass-top mounts designed to conceal the fixtures.
