Context

Artform Urban supplied a range of solar-powered lighting elements to The Royal Horticultural Society’s Garden at Wisley in Surrey. The requirement was for external lighting in prominent parts of the gardens to assist with wayfinding when dark.

Due to the size of the gardens the use of traditional outdoor lighting with permanent wiring was considered an expensive option. The digging of trenches for the wiring would also cause major disruption to the park along with a real potential of damage to rare species of plants.

Solution

Artform Urban's solution to the RHS brief were solar-powered elements which do not require wiring and only minimal labour when installing.

The Point Sun and Sunstone are 100% cable-free, self-charging ambient light sources. Designed by Faktor 3 they combine very simple designs with effective and sophisticated technology, to create a product rooted in Scandinavian design traditions.

These products also add huge sustainable value from an environmental aspect as they use renewable energy directly from the sun.

Outcome

The end result is that visitors and staff can now walk around safely in the dark thanks to eco-friendly lighting. No plants were damaged during installation.

The Royal Horticultural Society's garden at Wisley, Surrey is one of five gardens run by the Society and the second most visited paid entry garden in the UK, with an average of 1.1 million visitors annually. Founded in 1903, Wisley is a large and diverse garden covering 240 acres.
