exploring with light

the city palace

The MSMS II Trust, caretakers of the City Palace, wanted to create a “stirring night-time exhibit” at this heritage property. They wanted the Palace to stand out as a ‘Glowing Jewel’ in a city dotted with heritage Forts, Palaces and Havelis (Mansions).

The concept of “Night tourism” is still in its infancy in India and the Trust wanted to be the one to introduce it to Jaipur and its people, given that tourism is the city’s largest economic contributor.

Design Matrix was commissioned to provide lighting design consultancy services after a two year long short-listing process.

The Palace glows with Rajput pride and ‘warmth’, creating an intriguing and stunning night time visual of a bygone Royal era.
