Art work lit by Sutton Vane Associates in the Brilliant Biodiversity Gallery - 'Life in all its forms' Zone at the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre in Kuwait. The light slowly cross-fades to emphasise first one and then another living creature.

Sutton Vane Associates has a wide range of experiences designing lighting schemes for museums, exhibitions, event spaces and heritage sites. We built on this extensive knowledge to give each section its rightful moment in the 'spot light'. The great variety of objects, exhibits and experiences within the Cultural Centre meant we worked with a multi-disciplinary team of experts, including  museum and cultural heritage experience consultancy Cultural Innovations and interior fit out specialists Beck.
