O’Blaney Rinker is pleased to represent EOS Lightmedia

O’Blaney Rinker is pleased to represent EOS Lightmedia — an award-winning lighting and audiovisual design firm with international experience in architecture, public spaces, building facades, themed attractions, museums, presentation centers, and public art installations. Their services include design, supply, install, and programming services of lighting and media systems, including control technology.

You may have seen some of their work first hand!

9/11 Memorial Museum

Eos Lightmedia was contracted to supply, install and focus the majority of lighting for the museum. What would normally be a relatively straightforward task—lighting a museum—was instead a highly sensitive one: Eos needed to realize the carefully constructed vision of the design team from Fisher Marantz Stone, within the constraints of site conditions, local contractors and New York labor unions.

The New England Patriots Super Bowl Experience

The New England Patriots Super Bowl Experience is a high-impact, modern-feeling gallery which takes viewers through the history of the team’s greatest victories on the field. Eos Lightmedia was contracted by architect and exhibit designer Cambridge Seven Associates to design the lighting for the new Super Bowl Experience Gallery at the existing Hall at Patriot Place in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

BC Place Stadium

Eos Lightmedia provided a lighting control and programming system to realize the full potential of the venue’s new solid-state, high-output LED lighting technology while respecting residential neighbors. Under the lighting designer’s direction, Eos programmed light shows including signature looks for the building and shows for both the Lions and Whitecaps. To this day, Eos continues to program lighting for the facility and create unique shows for special events and celebrations. More »

Luminaries at Brookfield Place

Eos Lightmedia worked with Maltbie for Rockwell Group’s Luminaries public lighting program at Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan.  The installation consists of 650 translucent lanterns embedded with RGB LEDs that hang in a dynamic canopy of light up to 45 feet off the ground. Eos selected the fixtures, created the electrical data layouts, created the interactive kiosk software and hardware designs and assisted Rockwell’s programmers and Brookfield’s on site tech team with the installation.

With a rich technical understanding of the mechanics of light and sound, Eos Lightmedia works with architects and designers to seamlessly integrate technologies within the built environment.

Diverse artistic backgrounds in professional theatre, live entertainment, and film are used to evoke emotion, spark wonder, and guide the human experience. This unique expertise allows Eos Lightmedia to produce vivid, exciting, immersive atmospheres in physical space.

If you can dream it, they can design it.

Historical Illumination

Founded in 2002, Tryka L.E.D. Ltd, has established an ever-growing international reputation delivering high profile projects.

One of Tryka’s latest projects was to provide lighting for the exterior of Lancaster Castle—a medieval landmark, believed to date back to the 11th century. This famed building is now enhanced with striking external lighting that dramatically highlights its historical character.

Tryka supplied a blend of floodlights, strip luminaires and ingrounds. Spotlights from their AURA family creates a tight beam to illuminate the clocktower. Subtle accent lighting was used to highlight the architectural features of the Castle. All luminaires were supplied in RAL 7024 to integrate and not distract from the castle.
