Enhancing the urban environment
LumenRadio’s CRMX wireless lighting controls played a key role in a new lighting system for Götaplatsen in central Gothenburg, Sweden. The project is part of the city’s effort to actively use lighting to enhance the urban environment and it was a featured project at the recent Annual General Meeting of the Lighting Urban Community International (LUCI).
The plaza, located at the end of the magnificent avenue Kungsportavenyn, is the center of Gothenburg’s cultural life and is lined by 3 major institutions; the Gothenburg City Theater, the Gothenburg Museum of Art, and the Gothenburg Concert Hall. The plaza features an impressive fountain with a gigantic statue of Poseidon signed Carl Milles, and attracts large crowds for such annual events as Chalmerscortégen, Christmas in Gothenburg, and Gothenburg City Marathon.
LumenRadio developed the permanent installation, designed with energy efficient and environmentally friendly LED fixtures, in cooperation with our Swedish distributor Hofmann Teknik AB and engineering firm Ramboll, with government support and ownership by the City of Gothenburg Traffic and Public Transport.
