Light serv­ing art

Domus - - NEWS - www.zum­to­bel.com

Us­ing only LED, the light­ing de­sign for the new Museo degli In­no­centi in Florence was de­vel­oped by Zum­to­bel in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ipos­tu­dio. In ad­di­tion to an 85% drop in en­ergy use, LED light­ing en­sures top qual­ity in all shades of white. In the Pic­ture Gallery, each work is lit softly and pre­cisely: larger paint­ings with pro­jec­tors (6m tall) and ad hoc lenses to per­fectly out­line the works and avoid shini­ness and re­flec­tion. For the room host­ing the Ado­ra­tion of the Magi by Ghirlandaio (right) the light­ing em­pha­sises the way we per­ceive the work. Two softly blended shades of white: a colder gra­di­ent at the top, which be­comes softer as the eye de­scends.
