The best experts in lighting fine art don’t just have an eye for the craft, they also have the kind of fixtures that can make a display something special. Illuminating a valuable painting or sculpture can be pretty intimidating for homeowners, and without the knowledge or technical aptitude, setting up a collection of fixtures can feel like trial and error. With Phantom, that kind of frustrating setup can be eliminated, as well as any uncertainty with the fixture selection process. After all, picking the right fixtures is just as important as installing them properly, and there are many options to choose from.
How can experts in lighting fine art help a homeowner pick the right system?
The first, and arguably most important part of setting up a display, is selecting the correct fixtures for the job. Even the best design can’t overcome a cheap, poorly made source of illumination. This is perhaps where a knowledgeable design firm can offer the most help, as they have access to all kinds of advanced fixture technology. And most designers will also have a showroom dedicated to demonstrating them in action, so a homeowner can get a feel for a system before they commit to one. A designer can also walk a homeowner through customization options and appropriate settings for each of its fixtures. If a homeowner wants it, they can get a crash course in display illumination, and how to maximize its effect.
Once the selection process is handled, a design firm can assist throughout the installation process, especially if a homeowner is comfortable handling it on their own. Normally, it’s pretty quick, and if there are any unique challenges, like a vaulted ceiling, odd room dimensions, or intrusive ambient illumination, the experts at Phantom are used to working around such concerns all the time, and can produce the desired look no matter what obstacles are presented.
What kind of display illumination does Phantom use in its projects?
While Phantom can adapt any type of illumination to a display, its most powerful option is its optical framing projectors, which offer an incomparable look. Few experts in lighting fine art can work with standard optical framing projectors, but Phantom’s are designed to be as intuitive as possible. For example, though Phantom offers several projector models, all of them can be installed without the use of special tools.
However, it might take an experienced installer to get the placement just right, as glare and illumination metering are always concerns. Fortunately, Phantom’s designers have no problem offsetting and positioning the projector so that it contours to the subject perfectly. And if a homeowner has a particularly challenging subject to work with, like an oversized painting, Phantom’s designers can still frame it perfectly, using tandem projectors if necessary. There is, in short, no setting too challenging for Phantom to overcome, which is just one reason why its projectors are finding their way into homes around the country.
