The artist Prahbhavathi Meppayil turned to us for lighting consultancy for her site-specific commission dp/sixteen/part one, that was unveiled at the 2016 Art Dhaka Summit in Bangladesh.

Her installation was inspired by the large geometric canopy, which is seen when looking from the lobby to the outside. However, the perceived connection was obstructed by disturbing reflections from the light bulbs in the lobby area. In addition there was an overall lack of light to realize even illumination of the artwork. 

With our consultation and explanatory sketches, Prahbhavathi and her team could alter the lighting in the lobby with a very low budget.
