Signify illuminates Vietnam's Imperial City
Vietnam’s ‘Imperial City’ of Huế has been illuminated with Philips Color Kinetics technology by Signify.
The thick stone walls of Hue’s fortress offered protection to citizens of the ‘Imperial City’ for nearly a century and a half. Once only accessible to royalty, the Imperial City has been revitalised to not only preserve and honour the historical value of the monument but also to create a special attraction at night, attracting many tourists and locals alike.
The project was commissioned by Vietravel Company and sponsored by the Chairman of Thua Thien-Hue provincial People’s Committee. Technology used include 270 Philips Color Kinetics Vaya linear RGB LP and 155 Philips Color Kinetics Vaya Flood RGB LP controlled by LSM gen 5 1000. The installation was completed in March 2018.
The new lighting is able to create light shows that include simulating the firing of ‘cannons’ set in the walls of the tower. The LED lighting system is anticipated to be up to 75% more energy efficient than conventional lighting systems.
