Reflection Room, by designer Flynn Talbot, is an immersive coloured light experience that will be the first London Design Festival installation to be housed in the Prince Consort Gallery.

The vaulted space is lit at each end to highlight and define the dramatic 35m length of the gallery, its ceiling structure and visitors to the installation. It is illuminated with Talbot’s signature of complementary blue and orange lighting, and large black refective Barrisol panels are used to expand the width of the space, offering a fragmented view of shifting colours, faceted refections and light.

Refection Room uses 56 custom-made stretch membrane Barrisol panels in gloss black. Woven within the panels are Tryka LED profiles emitting vivid orange and blue hues. The resulting play of verticals serves to transform the space into a vivid refective space of coloured light made with a futuristic textile, paying homage to the history of the room itself, that previously housed over 30,000 textile samples.

Flynn Talbot explains, “I conceived the idea standing in the gallery, and wanted to add my story on top of the beautiful existing architecture but not to take it over. With all of my work, I want to create new experiences using light that build a connection between people and place.”

In partnership with Barrisol with further support by Tryka LED & Seam Design.

Flynn Talbot is an Australian lighting artist and designer based in London, UK. Talbot creates lighting installations and commissioned pieces for galleries and unique buildings along with innovative lighting products for serial production.

Talbot’s starting point is always the same for each project. He begins with the consideration of the “light effect” and constructs each project around it. Every decision and detail is made with the quality of light and user connection in mind. Talbot does not believe in being bound by style, material or form. This method creates a timeless quality and a strong point of difference in his work.
