Sweden – W-DMX by Wireless Solution once again played an important role in the recent Lights in Alingsås event in Sweden. The event is Northern Europe’s largest lighting workshop in public spaces, attracting more than 85,000 visitors every year.

Beginning in the year 2000, leading lighting designers and companies have been invited to Alingsås to demonstrate their expertise, network and hold workshops. For five weeks, the dark evenings of Sweden are transformed into beautiful lighting installations around the town.

It started in 1999 when students from HDK, Jönköping University and Gothenburg University gathered in Alingsås to experiment with different lighting designs for public buildings. The following year, the municipality entered into agreements with the Professional Lighting Designers’ Association – PLDA, who have brought the international world of lighting design to Alingsås every year since then. The result is an educational and fun lighting event, which has grown annually.

Four W-DMX WhiteBox F-1 units and two W-DMX WhiteBox R-512 receivers, supplied by Wireless Solution, were used on two of the installations. The Åmanska Parken, featuring lighting designer Herbert Cybulska, used SGM G-spot and SGM P5. The second site, Klämma, featuring lighting designer Gudjon Sigurdsson, used Zumtobel Aphrodite fixtures. 

Margaretha Stenmark, project manager said: ”We were very happy with the W-DMX system and how it worked. We will use it at the 2015 edition of Lights In Alingsås as well. We have a nice cooperation with Wireless Solution which we hope will last for many years.”

Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution said: “Wireless Solution has worked with Lights in Alingsås in the past with great results. The WhiteBox series is our solution for architectural and entertainment projects that require the reliability and ease of use of W-DMX products, in a weatherproof IP-65 rated casing. Perfect for the winter climate in Sweden. The installations were stunning and the reaction was very positive.”
