With more than 9,500 square metres and 7,500 artworks illuminated, it is being described as the 'largest gallery space ever lit by LEDs'.

It has been revealed in 4-traders that the newly renovated museum will open its doors to the public April 13th with the entire art exhibition illuminated by LED lighting. Philips worked closely with museum staff and architects to create a strong focus on visitor experience and the display creates effects and visual contrasts that closely mimic the colour rendition of natural daylight. With more than 9,500 square metres and 7,500 artworks illuminated, it is being described as the “largest gallery space ever lit by LEDs”.

Speaking about the project, Rogier Van der Heide, Chief Design Officer and Vice President at Philips Lighting explained they drew upon their “knowledge of the art and science of illumination to achieve a quality of light that truly brings out the detail of each masterpiece”.

Closely following the updates and developments of the LED industry, the team at Simple Lighting, who specialise in a range of home and outdoor lighting, were particularly interested to read more about the project. A representative shares their thoughts on the matter.

“The lighting illuminates masterpieces spanning several centuries. This means that as well as conserving the artwork, the lighting solution needed to be as flexible as possible. LED lighting is often used to illuminate art as brings out colours in more details. At Simple Lighting we offer a range of LED products suitable for the home at reasonable prices.”
