ALCOVE LIGHTING DESIGN - A Streamlined Silhouette

Sculpted into the middle of the ceiling and adjoining wall, this fluid alcove lighting concept was employed for Mumbai’s Art Deco Cinema - New Empire, designed in the 1940s. A Deco detail that introduces an innovative expression to lighting design - when alcove lighting is more commonly designed at the corners of a ceiling rather than sculpted in the middle, as seen in this design illustration.
