Long-life LED luminaires in hard-to-reach recesses are providing a unique viewing experience at the new Yitzhak Rabin Museum in Tel Aviv and minimizing disruption to visitors from unplanned maintenance.

The vision to create small, almost invisible light sources that wouldn’t detract from the artifacts was accomplished by embedding LUXEON LED based lighting solutions in walls, the floors and awkward spaces where conventional light sources wouldn’t be practical.

Two luminaires manufactured by D-LED, the D-Spot and Nano, were specified for the project. Each uses LUXEON K2 LEDs driven at 700 mA to achieve the light output and lumen maintenance required for the application. D-LEDs' experience with SSL solutions coupled with engineering expertise and support from Future Lighting Solutions enabled to project to come to fruition and for the museum to create a truly unique experience for its visitors.

“By using power LEDs, we were able to make backlighting luminaires that could be accommodated in very small spaces behind displays and equally to design discreet spotlights, each using three white LUXEON LEDs, that are so small that the eye is not drawn to or distracted by them,” said Noa Lev, the lighting designer who implemented the interior lighting of the museum.
