New Lighting Solution for Hamburg’s Museum of Art and Industry
Sep 2, 2010 At the refurbished Museum of Art and Industry, the multifunctional Supersystem LED lighting system works at its best: paintings and sculptures are highlighted in all their facets by its attractive, brilliant light.
The Museum of Art and Industry in Hamburg now welcomes its guests in an entrance hall flooded with light. New visual axes across the building provide improved orientation for visitors and allow lots of daylight to enter the historic building. The contemporary interior design is enhanced by a state-of-the-art lighting solution incorporating Zumtobel’s Supersystem LED lighting system.
“More light” was the approach favoured by the Hamburg-based architectural studio of MRJ-Architekten. The redesign project, with total costs amounting to € 9 million, was financed by several foundations and sponsors, among them the Hermann Reemtsma foundation and the main sponsor Harald Hartog.
It was the museum’s director, Prof. Sabine Schulze, who suggested the use of Zumtobel’s LED Supersystem in order to present the works of art displayed in the exhibition areas in the right light. The visually unobtrusive system incorporating a delicate aluminium section impressed Ms. Schulze when she set eyes on it at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt, where it had been installed for the very first time. With the multi-functional LED Supersystem, power consumption is reduced to a minimum. Only 2.5 W are required by the light-emitting diodes that are arranged in groups of three on the underside of the pendant luminaires. Directed downwards, they provide pleasant ambient lighting in the lounges and exhibition areas. In order to allow illumination of the artworks in a targeted manner from various directions, they can be pulled out individually and aligned towards an object. Their light is UV- and IR-free, so as not to cause any damage to the highly sensitive paintings and sculptures. The indirect component comes from fluorescent lamps, which can be adjusted in brightness. To fit into the exhibition showcases, the Supersystem was modified and can now be integrated unobtrusively, yet efficiently into the frame.
A variety of lighting scenes have already been pre-programmed and can be selected using the switch panel.
