Illuminated Wire Mesh Haver & Boecker
An illuminated façade with DOGLA-TRIO 1030 and a color-washing system
The office building of HAVER & BOECKER’s wire-weaving division now shines in a completely new light. This is due to a new LED system that lights the wire mesh from below.
The Liner Shield AC XB LED-RGB-light source system by Traxon Technologies is fully outdoor-rated and the ideal solution for high-brightness architectural illumination.
The LED spots provide high brightness, high color brilliance, and various radiation characteristics while remaining low in power consumption. The simple plug-and-play system and flexible cable lengths enable easy installation for large-scale lighting projects.
Used in combination with IMAGIC WEAVE® transparent media façade, the illumination of 481 m² of architectural wire mesh façade is perfect.
The colorful illumination of the wire mesh façade with light compositions can be customized individually. It is possible to assign static color to each LED or to play automated lighting effects. A direct interaction between the color-washing system and IMAGIC WEAVE® media façade is also possible. For example, the video background color on the media façade can be extended to any wire of the wire mesh façade.
The visual effect of the illuminated mesh façade is specifically influenced by the geometry of the mesh. Theoretically, a closed wire mesh reflects more light and an open wire mesh reflects less light, but in reality a mesh façade can be much more fascinating and alterable than that.
The illumination of spotlight architectural wire mesh also provides a rather unique magic to the viewer. The harmoniously matched beams have their own dynamic, moving in time with the viewer’s position.
