Pyramid design lighting scheme for iconic sculpture ‘Bianca’
An award-winning Plymouth firm has been tasked with creating the lighting scheme which will illuminate the city’s towering bronze sculpture ‘Bianca’.
The Pyramid Group will be working closely with the Theatre Royal Plymouth to decide on the best way to illuminate ‘Bianca’ when she takes up residence in the city.
The seven metre tall and nine metre wide sculpture, weighing in at around 3,500kg, is under construction and due to arrive in her new home outside the entrance to the Theatre Royal Plymouth in late 2018 or early 2019.
Deciding on the best way to illuminate ‘Bianca’ to her full potential, the Theatre Royal Plymouth team turned to The Pyramid Group for their expertise.
Nic Black, Managing Director of The Pyramid Group, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Theatre, and are in the process of creating design options that will show off Bianca in her best light. It is particularly pleasing to be working on another local project when our work often takes us out of the region.”
The Pyramid Group provides audio visual solutions, lighting design and event management for both commercial and residential customers from all over the world.
The Plympton-based firm recently added two awards to add to their list of accolades at the CEDIA industry awards, one of which was for ‘Best Lighting, Control and Installation’.
Adrian Vinken OBE, Chief Executive of Theatre Royal Plymouth, said: “This major new piece of public sculpture will be a significant addition to the city centre and make a big statement about Plymouth’s civic confidence and the level of its cultural ambitions. We want to ensure that it’s presented to the world in the best possible way and are delighted that a local Plymouth company are the best qualified for that important job.
We decided to use Plymouth firm The Pyramid Group for their experience, expertise and the fact that they’ve been recognised as one of the best in the world for what they do.
We really look forward to seeing what exciting ideas the team come up with to ensure ‘Bianca’ looks her best for all to see in the years to come.”
