Glasgow 1999 Outdoor Luminaire

In the course of a major revamp and overhaul, the Hampden National Stadium team considered a number of design-led solutions to its location problems – it is in the middle of a built-up residential area and has to coexist with a lot of pedestrian traffic. The team eventually came up with a brief to design an outdoor luminaire. To inspire the stadium’s team, the Glasgow Collection commissioned designs from Graven Images, Gerard Taylor and McKeown Alexander. These concepts were used to brief Philips International Lighting, which designed The Glasgow 99 Outdoor Luminaire on a human scale, without the floodlighting usually found in designs of this type.
