Lighting designer Zoe Faulkner of Troup Bywaters + Anders and Foster + Partner Architects worked closely together to create illuminated curves via the XAL Frame Curve system customised to reflect the building’s structure.

Digest Volume 4.5 covers XAL’s range of discreet lighting and their latest innovations. After 30 years, they continue to push the boundaries of technology and design.
We then look at Aertssen Logistics, an architecturally futuristic building with lighting as unique as the structure itself. Interior designer Eef Debeuf gives insight into her vision and the project’s spectacular lighting system.
XAL truly continues to inspire architects and designers alike with UNICO; a downlight with unique flexibility that meets every requirement.
Finally, we evaluate functional and appealing lighting for educational establishments, notably Lucerne University.
In our next Digest Volume 4.4, we delve into Europe’s leading architectural and decorative lighting manufacturers, Wever & Ducre and celebrate two of their exceptional designs.
The WETRO collection brings pieces made with techniques based on hundreds of years of craftsmanship, making each product completely unique. VENN accentuates exciting design elements, with its striking overlapping squares, but also incredibly multifunctional.
Welcome to Digest 4.3. In this issue we hero XAL’s innovative and timeless design, starting with the MOVE IT 45 SYSTEM. A magnetic track system that allows workspaces and conference tables to be individually illuminated with a single track and the right insets.
We then tap into how lighting has been used in a number of open-learning, spatial situations within St Martin’s Primary School, to achieve a feel-good environment. Similarly, we discuss the versatile lighting formats for meeting rooms and how it can truly determine the mood and outcome of any discussion.
Welcome to Digest Volume 4.2. Despite the continual challenges faced by us all, the creative minds and manufacturing teams behind the Brands we represent at Est Lighting, have shown remarkable resilience. Their admirable defiance has conceived the release of new collections that continue to push the parameters in ‘good design’ and lighting technologies. We proudly applaud their perseverance.
With our Melbourne and Sydney showrooms renovating to represent these new products, some of which we showcase in this Digest issue, we invite you to put some time aside to visit us and see these new collections for yourselves. Of course, there will be Gin & Tonic’s and Negroni’s on request!
