So how was it achieved? PLAZA S3x and S7x spotlights and BLADE Micro linear luminaires were chosen for this project because of their size and ability to be hidden. Morten chose a warmer white for the bricks – 2700K – with 3000K used to highlight the white cornicing and architectural elements on the building, making them stand out.
“To me, it’s very important not to ‘harm’ the building during the daytime with large fittings – therefore, I carefully picked the smallest and most effective. At the same time, these products also needed to be high quality in terms of durability (there’s a lot of rain in Denmark – so the luminaires had to be engineered to last), glare control, lens options and easy handling. The glare control element was particularly important to prevent spectators and visitors being blinded and to keep the night sky dark.”
Morten ensured that the luminaires were all carefully placed to be as invisible as possible. As it was a mock up, the fittings could not be drilled or screwed into place, so the wiring was done with extension cords and the installation was put up, photographed ad dismounted the very same day.
