Innovation & Added Value

Matrix, Analyzing, De-Coding was the Architect’s concept; the façade Lighting concept mirrored this concept, to enhance the architectural language. The outcome is a clean sophisticated look for daytime and a digital processing/de-coding look during nighttime. Custom made RGB-LEDs were integrated with Architectural and Façade elements to achieve the overall ‘De-Coding’ concept. Each LED element has its own address, to support De-Coding concept and allow a moving active display.
