At Absolute Action, we strive to enhance the works of artists wherever they are displayed, be that in a residential setting or a major gallery or museum, with exquisitely tailored lighting. Here are some pictures of paintings and sculptures that we have lit using fibre optic lighting.
A series of beautiful glass panels - designed by Beleschenko - adorn the front of a Princes Street building in London. The lower section, at ground level, is backlit using Absolute Action's fibre optic lighting.  Toughened glass had been enamel painted and laminated with glass flakes embedded in a silicone inter-fill.  The bright colour of the glass is made all the more dramatic by being backlit by 200 fibre optic lenses powered by five powerful metal halide lightsources.

The  Bishop Terrick's drawing room and dining room at Fulham Palace house some fascinating works of art, all of which are perfectly yet unobtrusively lit by Absolute Action using fibre optic lighting.  The light heads were suspended within a ceiling rose above the chandeliers in each room, and therefore perfectly discreet.
