UCL New Student Centre Opens
University College London's new centre in the heart of Bloomsbury is a 6-level hub for a host of student services. Foremost are individual and group study areas - 1,000 study places have been created.

The work surface lighting requirement was well met by Aktiva's discreetly efficient AL-07/LED/Desk, its 2.9 Watt lensed lamping doing its bit towards an aimed-for BREEAM rating of 'Outstanding' for the Centre.

Architect: Nicholas Hare Architects

Making Waves at the Old Library St John’s Oxford
B-Line/Book has now added a Wave shade option to its features. Designed to reduce light glare significantly, the Wave shade option has greater width than the standard B-Line but still presents a slim profile.

B-Line/Book/Wave is currently being evaluated for use in the Grade 1 Listed Old Library (built in 1598) at St John’s College Oxford. This test installation aims to combine contemporary lighting performance with an aesthetically pleasing visual presence to illuminate the oldest bookshelves in the University of Oxford.
