Architect Dejan Todorović chose Philips StyliD PerfectBeam projectors with a 7-43° beam angle to illuminate the paintings. DALI controllers enable precise adjustment of luminosity intensity, 16 pre-defined lighting atmospheres and individual lamp diagnosis. The technology highlights each painting beautifully without the risk of damage, and guarantees flexibility meaning it can be adapted for changing exhibitions.
Dejan Todorović proposed the zenith lighting concept for the building: using cubes of 64 Philips CoreLine panels connected to DALI controls to regulate lighting levels in tandem with the PerfectBeam projectors. Natural daylight provides most of the light during the day. At night, the CoreLine panels and PerfectBeams gradually take over.
A priority for the exterior lighting was to emphasize the museum's unusual geometry: the borders, the building's six cubes and their glazed domes. The exterior eW Blast Powercore gen4 Philips Color Kinetics luminaires highlights the six cubes' vertical edges. CoreLine Tempo projectors installed below the six cubes' glass domes complement this illumination from inside. The entire illumination can be enjoyed from different perspectives - the best view is from the Belgrade Fortress - and highlights the museum architecture's unique polymorphic crystal forms.
The success of the solution underlines the value of cooperation among the project's stakeholders to achieve the best possible result. Signify provided technical advice to help Dejan Todorović find the best lighting concepts for his designs after numerous discussions. This teamwork resulted in an innovative museum lighting concept that satisfied the investor’s requirement, synchronized with the building's original design, while providing the ideal environment in which to display artwork.
