Carnival Sunshine Cruise Ship

Creative Lighting


Carnival Cruise Lines has invested $155 million to expand and refit it’s 2,642 -passenger liner Carnival Destiny, in one of the most dramatic refurbishments in contemporary cruising, culminating with a name change to Carnival Sunshine.

The Carnival Destiny entered service in 1996 as the largest passenger ship ever built. Once the refit is completed, the Carnival Sunshine will have an increased capacity for 3,006 passengers.

The newly configured layout is to reflect Carnival Cruise Line’s $500 million ‘Fun Ship 2.0’ initiative, which will encompass nearly every nook and cranny of the vessel.

Barrisol Lighting Installations

Barrisol Welch is extremely proud to have been involved in this groundbreaking transformation.

We installed 104 translucent Barrisol lighting discs with an associated Madrix lighting control system. The installation required 4000m of RGB LED’s, 500 power supplies and was completed within 14 days in the port of Trieste, Italy.

John Martin Gallery

Barrisol Lighting Installation


The John Martin Gallery in Soho, London, hosts exhibitions, publications and films by contemporary and 20th-century artists and acts.

Barrisol Welch was asked to install a series of Barrisol light boxes throughout the gallery to help enhance the viewing experience of the exhibitions.

Barrisol Installations

Barrisol was chosen for its many benefits in museum and gallery installations.

Barrisol Acoustic Light installations can help to correct the acoustic properties of large open public spaces such as museums and galleries, whilst providing perfectly balanced light.

Our Barrisol LED light systems also reduce the harmful heat and ultra violet content found in many other lighting systems, thus helping to protect exhibits from exposure to light, without impacting on the exhibits viewing experience.
