Signify announced that it has installed its architectural lighting into the façade of the China World Trade Center's (CWTC) Tower B, which is one of Beijing's tallest buildings.
According to Signify, it has “invisibly” illuminated the building. On the top of the tower, 88 sets of Philips Color Kinetics ColorReach LED floodlights were installed. Signify also provided a total of 400,000 white LED light points to accentuate the architecture of the tower walls. The Philips Color Kinetics eW Flex Micro string lights are embedded into cavities on the curtain wall, rendering them "invisible."
Signify's Professional Lighting Services team worked closely with the architect and reserved the cavity structures for the lighting. The installation nodes are exceptionally well designed, and the illumination angles and installation positions fit perfectly the structure of the curtain wall, preventing light from shining inside the offices at night.
Signify also provides the software to control the lights of the building. Philips Color Kinetics Video System Manager Controller is utilized to control thousands of LED lights which enables video content to be streamed and scaled across the building's entire façade. These LED motion graphics convert the tower into a giant canvas or video screen.
