After the completion of a major engineering plan aimed at ensuring the total safety and stability of the tower, the city council decided to complete the external renovation with a low environmental impact lighting system that should be able to deliver a new appearance to the old building at night. The company in charge of the lighting project, Enel Sole S.r.l., turned to Griven in order to receive a complete report based on the demanding project specifications. The lowest number possible of LED fixtures was required and they should also have to illuminate exclusively the tower surface and not the adjacent buildings without exceeding the restrictive legal luminance limits.
Moreover, the lighting system should deliver a wall grazing effect on the surface of the tower, a uniform color changing scheme based on monochromatic tones dynamically alternating according to different scenes and programmes. GRIVEN’s lighting designers, in cooperation with Enel Sole S.r.l, forwarded the complete protocol in a record time, complying with all the demanding project requirements while delivering a beautiful lighting effect. In order to achieve the final result, a powerful but at the same time extremely compact unit was required. Therefore, 10 Zaphir in RGBW color configuration with either elliptical or elliptical wide optics were chosen to provide the required effect. Displaying a number of intuitive features with immediate and full access to all functions, a LED D.O.P. controller, completed by a wireless DMX signal transmitter and a DMX signal receiver, was required to seamlessly manage the whole system.
