Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía · Madrid

A place where Art is the Queen.

A Palace where you dance to the sound of footsteps.

A perpetual and subdued light that calms you and takes you to other spaces.

Reina Sofia

Museum of art contemporary from the 20th century and, located in the old General Hospital of Madrid, large neoclassical building of the eighteenth century, initially designed by José de Hermosilla and continued by Francesco Sabatini.

It houses works by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró being one of the most visited museums in the world.

Domes of the Cloister

In 2016, we were commissioned to be part of the restoration project of the cloister vaults of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, to design and manufacture of bespoke fixtures for the project.

By illuminating the vaults, we managed to give the space height and solemnity, we emphasized the original architecture and created a rhythm that invites us to circulate quietly through the cloister.

SAKMA designed a special projector to be integrated on the vaults: SPT 95.

Thanks to a filter, the beam of light tilts up to 20° to focus on the vaults without the need to tilt the spotlight. It has a support that adapts perfectly to the columns through a 90° anchor.
