Track lighting fixtures
Ishara Art Foundation focuses on contemporary art from a South Asian context. Located in Alserkal Avenue, its dedicated space and exhibitions programme builds on the shared histories, continued presence and cultural contribution of South Asian voices in the Gulf.
Scientechnic Lighting Solutions was responsible for the supply, testing and commissioning of ERCO Track Lighting Fixtures for the galleries of Ishara Art Foundation. The track lights have the provision of interchangeable lenses, enabling variable and flexible lighting design that can be adapted to the changing style of the exhibits and art pieces. Additionally, a bespoke solution from NGA for Linear Lighting Fixtures was also supplied by Scientechnic.
The system design of the track and light structures allows for different mounting options: recessed or surface-mounted, with flanges for ceiling panels, and suspension using cables or pendant tubes.
ERCO, founded in 1934 as a family business, now operates as a global player with independent sales organisations and partners in 55 countries worldwide. Scientechnic was appointed as the exclusive agent for ERCO in 1983 and together we bring groundbreaking new technologies to iconic projects in the UAE.
