A young city is celebrating a milestone birthday and we as a young company from the Lower Rhine are part of it: 2015 Karlsruhe will be 300 years young and LED Linear supports the city's birthday as the official supplier for LED lighting.
The city birthday KA300 shows Karlsruhe as a worth living city, in which encounter and exchange are very important. Karlsruhe commits its 300th anniversary with a summer festival over 15 weeks (from 20th June 2015 until 26th September 2015). The heart of the Karlsruhe festival summer and the eye catcher in the castle garden is a newly designed pavilion, which offers visitors a colorful cultural program. With its innovative design language the multifunctional pavilion forms a delightful contrast to the historic backdrop of the castle.
The architectural sculpture was designed and implemented by the project community "J. Mayer H. and partners, architects and Rubner Holzbau GmbH". The lighting design was taken over by the company “lichttransfer” from Berlin under the direction of Katrin Söncksen. The pavilion is illuminated with linear lighting solutions of LED Linear. Overall 119 ADONIS luminaires and 150 VarioLED™ HYDRA HD36 light lines in profile were used. Both products provide an enormous light output, are UV and water-resistant and offer the best quality of light thanks to Japanese LEDs. As a result, they meet the high requirements for the application in this project. Moreover both products meet the demanding design requirements of the project: the ADONIS luminaires with opal encapsulation and VarioLED™ HYDRA light lines in the profile, both are characterized by their homogeneous light. Thus, the structure of the building sculpture is appealing diffusely illuminated, emphasized in height, structure, surface and materiality and the building encouraged in his character.
