ERCO specialises in architectural lighting.


Digital Lichtbericht 7

Published in October 2015
What do Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and ERCO have in common? Well, the most obvious connection is passion for light and an inquisitive mind, and yet we share another trait with the great German poet, and that is a fascination for Italy.

ERCO has supplied major Italian fashion labels as well as a whole host of boutiques with precision lighting tools for many years, but this year, the scope and diversity of our Italian lighting projects moved beyond our expectations – a couple of the more notable projects include a narrative lighting concept for the heavily symbolic Imperial Forums in Rome, the lighting of Australia’s new Biennale pavilion in Venice and the new Fondazione Prada in Milan as well as the relighting of Milan Cathedral. Each of them shows that digital ERCO luminaires, with our amazing technological platform, have become firm components as efficient lighting tools for differentiated, perception-orientated and energy-efficient lighting concepts.

This adds to our excitement and anticipation of the PLDC that we will attend with our own booth this year. One unique highlight is that we will present a preview of the 2016 digital innovations that will almost certainly intrigue you. Please do join us when the new parameters for lighting design based on LED technology are discussed and tweaked at one of the world’s most exciting lighting design conventions – the autumn is a perfect time for a trip through Italy

Whether you’re involved with museums or historic sites, the illumination of landmarks is, and remains, a challenge. Lighting concepts in the public domain must stage the impressive dimensions of monumentally large structures and extensive spaces effectively using high levels of luminous flux, but without causing glare for the traffic and people around. With this in mind, ERCO has just launched the new outdoor luminaire Kona as a perfect lighting tool for the illumination of tall buildings at extended distances – allowing large luminaire spacing for maximum performance with efficient visual comfort and excellent glare control.

See you in Rome!

ERCO is responsible for its upgraded lighting with efficient LED lighting tools.
