A Journey Through Volvo’s History is Brought to New Life With LDR's CDM Architectural Line
Sweden is the country of Volvo and Goteborg is the right place for taking a journey through a world of iconic car models, groundbreaking innovations and imaginative prototypes.
All you can imagine and much more can be seen At Volvo Museum where visitors can take a trip through Volvo’s history and heritage, all the way from the start of its foundation in Goteborg dated 1927.
Through the years the museum expanded to an area of 8,000 square metres becoming one of the main attractions for more than 100,000 tourists from all over the world.
With the target of sustaining the beauty of the works on display in the new 2000 square metre pavilion “Life at Exreme” dedicated to the Volvo ocean race and golf tournament, particular attention was given to the artificial light by giving priority to the quality of the light and aesthetic of the products.
The lighting project was commissioned to Mediatec, one of Europe’s largest corporations specialising in delivering AVL integrated solutions, with the specific aim to integrate the lighting system in the existing building architecture.
“It was a challenging architectural project since we had to provide an answer to different needs with one unique solution,” comments Fabiano Besio. “The performances of the CDM lamp (12000hrs , CRI >90 with a choice of 3000°K and 4500 °K ) coupled with a built-in ballast and compact stylish Italian design drive the choice of the architects.”
The company Bellalite, exclusive distributor of the LDR’s range for Sweden, provides local support to Mediatec supplying the museum with the right mix of floodlights, Fresnels and profiles luminaires contributing to the success of the museum.
“Our company,” says Leif Lundgren from Bellalite, “is known for providing high quality service and great product to the Swedish market. This is an important addition to the existing portfolio of architectural installations made In Sweden from Bellalite using the LDR architectural range.
“Our theatre background and passion for lighting was taken into the architectural market with success,” commented Fabiano Besio. “We are particularly proud of the results and the continued success is proving that we made the right choice. A special thanks goes to the company Mediatec and Bellalite, and to all the people involved with this project.”
