Beautiful lighting for an auld building's spiral staircase

The design firm of Speirs + Major got the contract to update the lighting in Edinburgh's Usher Hall. Their solution for the hall's magnificent spiral staircase was this striking acrylic cylinder surrounding fluorescent tubes: "the inner layer is frosted to soften the light while the outer layer is etched with a ringed pattern
that catches the light. each fluorescent section is separated by shorter sections of frosted glass
rings uplit with leds to add sparkle and introduce variation along the length."
