On entering Savoy Place visitors are presented with an elegant and interactive digital chandelier that sets the tone for the rest of the building. This sculptural piece represents the convergence of the various sectors of engineering the IET by presenting them as a dynamic ‘field of energy’.
The various facets are depicted as animated particles of energy that interconnect to become greater than the sum of their parts. As visitors move underneath the sculpture various elements subtly animate and come to life, creating a dynamic and ever-changing image of the IET.
Within the lobby space of the Faraday Centre on the 2nd floor is a live digital display showing up-to-the-minute information from the global world of the IET. We took multiple data feeds and sources of information and mashed them together into a visually stunning, real-time projection, which is part sculpture and part infographic. Behind the scenes is a simple and elegant content management system allowing the IET to update and manage what gets shown to visitors immediately.
Engineers have radically changed lives for the better over the years, solving problems, improving safety and contributing to the quality of life. The first floor lobby display reflects this with a display about the 100 ideas that changed the world, as chosen by IET members. The physical exhibit shows individual items in their own display case and is enhanced with two touchscreens either side, allowing visitors to explore the idea and the end product as they browse.
