Out of the Darkness into the light
Mushroom Lighting was originally a product of the early 70's, with the chief lighting designer heavily involved with Prog Rock, and amateur theatre, progressing rapidly into large concerts such as Deutsches Eck in Koblenz, Cropready, and the infamous Nags Head with John Peel, lighting many many bands. Over the years the passion for lighting hasn't diminished, but has moved into corporate one offs working with the likes of Debenhams, Coca Cola, Dior, Unilever, Coutts etc offering not only lighting but AV and sound, and where requested high end rigging, trussing and motors.
All these skills were ustilised on the world s largest hanging time piece (Timeless) which hung over a 40m void in the atrium of Senator House in the City of London. The project won Sign of the Year for main contractor Sign Of The Times, and Client Acrylicize.
Event work ranges from private parties to lighting St Paul's Cathedral for Cancer Reasearch Christmas Carol Concert, Amnesty House, and even supplying snow for 3 months in the heart of Knightsbridge!!
