CBI member Philips provided the International Youth Culture Centre in Nanjing with an energy-efficient, dynamic, colour-changing, computer-controlled LED lighting system.
Transforming the city’s skyline with a 16 million colour palette, the façade of the 68-storey building, which houses a five-star hotel and offices, costs less than €114 a day to light. In this instance, the computer controlled LED lighting system saves an additional 60% in electricity used compared to normal LED colour lighting.
A total of 700,000 nodes of Philips iColour Flex MX LED lights accentuate the building’s fluidity and curves while Philips Vaya Linear LED lights create the striking vertical lines. The 300-metre high structure looks even taller due to Philips Vaya Flood LED lights, which project into the night sky.
The lighting system enables the building owners to change colours and create spectacular light shows with a click of a mouse button. The building was designed by leading architect Zaha Hadid.
