Discover the buildings illuminated by Zumtobel which immensely highlighted their architectural beauty.
- Dornier Museum:
The Dornier Museum for aeronautics in Friedrichshafen is shaped like a hangar, impressively depicting the passion of flying. While, during the day, natural light enters through large windows, the museum turns into a glittering point of light at night – with a lighting installation by James Turrell adding to the effect. He has created a lighting work of art with its harmonious colour sequence to highlight the exterior façade of the building. With the implementation of innovative Zumtobel 16-bit control, the luminaires’ colour space was extended to several million colours providing unlimited effects.
- Galleria Centercity:
The Galleria Centercity shopping mall in Cheonan, South Korea is a huge building which is easily visible from a distance. Dynamic light shows produced by more than 22,000 LED lighting points cover the structure in a glittering feat that stands out impressively against its city skyline. The high-power LED spotlights specially developed by luminaire manufacturer Zumtobel are designed to merge almost imperceptibly into the façade. 12,399 of the 22,000 luminaires used are 3.6 W RGB luminaires, while the remaining units (approximately 10,000) are 1.2 W white luminaires. Zumtobel collaborated with Bonn lighting design firm ag Licht and the prestigious Amsterdam architecture firm UNStudio created this one-of-a-kind lighting installation.
