Tim Routledge designed a stunning light show to complement fireworks and a drone display with high-power Elation beam lights in each of the London Eye’s 32 pods
“We wanted something that could cut through so you could see the beams and create more architecture with light,” Routledge said of his decision to use the Excaliburs. “It was very much about getting the chunkiest beam we could.” Tim Routledge – Lighting Designer
Despite the overhead protection, Routledge says the Excalibur’s waterproof rating was required because of the constant loading in and out in an outdoor environment. Additional Excaliburs lined the pier in front of the 135-meter tall wheel, working with other long-throw luminaires.
