Martin lights Danish School of Engineering
Using Martin Professional LED strip lights to backlight 24 panes of glass that operate as sun shades, the building - designed by architectural firm CF M°ller A/S - now radiates in a wash of eye-catching colour that has announced the Engineering School's arrival as a dynamic, new member of the neighbourhood.
The glass panes consist of two layers of 6mm tempered glass with yellow foil between. The panes, 40cm wide x 8m long and divided into four sections, are illuminated from the back by the IP67-rated RGB strip lights, thereby making the foil 'glow'.
Control of the lighting system is via a Martin software-based M-PC controller, which allows for programming and simple control of a series of custom light scenes.
Martin Professional's Aarhus-based R&D Department has enjoyed a long-standing cooperation with the School. This project, including lighting design, however, was completed in cooperation with Martin Professional Scandinavia.
The client is reportedly happy and satisfied with the result, a dynamic lighting solution that students have also found useful in their daily studies.
