The system consists of indirect ceiling wash lights, sidewall wash lights, entry lights, galley lights and accent lights based solely on LEDs technology. Wolfgang Helbach, president of DLE, said “This is an important milestone in aircraft interior lighting. It is the first major application of LED lighting technology by Boeing for general lighting in the interior of any of their aircraft. We are enthusiastic to be part of the Dreamliner team.”
Upon boarding, passengers will be welcomed by a larger, open entryway with sweeping arches directing their eyes upward. Above them they'll see a calming, simulated sky that enhances their perception of spaciousness (see photo). The arches are repeated at carefully selected locations in the interior, giving passengers the sense of being in well-proportioned spaces. The "sky" effect continues over the aisles throughout the airplane. Illuminated by arrays of LEDs this "sky" can change in color and brightness throughout the flight, enhancing the passenger's sense of comfort.
