Eco high power floodlight 500W and LED strip value-500 RGB protected

The Propylaeum in the city of Munich was illuminated with a powerful LED lighting system from LEDVANCE as part of a series of large-scale light installations.

This winter, the city of Munich illuminated the Propylaeum, the city gate at the west side of Konigsplat square, with a powerful LED lighting system from LEDVANCE.

The Propylaeum was illuminated as part of a series of large-scale light installations throughout the Kunstareal verbindet, or museum district, during the city’s annual arts and cultural festivities. Thanks to LEDVANCE as a strong partner, it was possible to create a high intensity lighting solution robust enough to withstand adverse weather conditions.

The greatest challenge of the project was to allow the Propylaeum, an important symbol in Munich, to shine in a new light. The lighting design was carefully integrated with the existing architecture, emphasising the original design rather than distracting from it. The light installation had to meet the strict static and urban planning requirements of the landmark, which is under monumental protection.

In order to meet the dimensions of the light installation and architecture, a specialised lighting system had to be found. An IP65-certified lighting solution was needed that produces homogeneous illumination in terms of colour temperature and luminosity.

The lighting solutions from LEDVANCE were particularly impressive due to their high luminosity and homogeneity, combined with a low installation profile. Thanks to their high quality standards, the luminaires are also weatherproof. Due to the constant colour temperature, a consistent lighting pattern could be created. At the same time, the low energy consumption of the lighting installation enables an efficient illumination of the Propylaeum. Controlling the lighting with a LEDVANCE remote control allowed for greater flexibility and the lighting installation could be easily adjusted even after the installation of the steel frame. A seamless transition between architecture and lighting was created – a fusion of light and architecture was achieved. Luminaires used in the project generate over one million lumens of luminosity to properly illuminate the monumental size of the building. “There are times when art and culture need more space than just an idea,” emphasises Yul Zeser, artist of the art installation in the Propylaeum.

For the lighting installation to meet the demands of adverse weather and performance, the ECO HIGH POWER FLOODLIGHT 500W and LED STRIP VALUE-500 RGB PROTECTED from LEDVANCE were chosen. The light sources from LEDVANCE were compelling here, both in their performance during daily operation and in their long operating time, as well as their wind and weather resistance.
