Pope Gives Blessing to LED Revolution at St Peter’s

Planning for the new LED lighting system for the world’s largest church has entered its final phase. The lighting calculations and simulations for completely new lighting concept – with the emphasis on indirect illumination – have been successfully completed. The design eliminates unsightly drop shadows on the circular inscription, which is carved into the wall below the cornices of the basilica.  A total of 700 custom-made luminaires with more than 100,000 LEDs will bathe individual works of art and statues at the basilica. The lighting – scheduled to be completed by Christmas 2018 – is being supplied by Osram, who also lit the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms in the Vatican in recent years. http://luxreview.com/article/2018/02/pope-gives-blessing-to-led-revolution-at-st-peter-s
