UNIQUE LIGHTING SCHEME ILLUMINATES SWEDISH BRIDGE
Brightly illuminating the ‘Sölvesborg Bridge’, Swedish design firm Ljusarkitektur has developed a unique lighting scheme to enhance its landmark status.The use of colour changing LED fixtures from Lumenpulse graze the suspension cables of what is considered Europe’s longest bicycle and pedestrian viaduct. Highlighting the distinctive arches, the pieces were mounted on the outside of the 756 metre long structure.
The overall design was achieved without impacting on the local wildlife – to limit glare, the firm integrated deep, custom glare shields, which also hide the light sources.
Influenced by the surrounding fauna and flora, Ljusarkitektur pushed the fixtures’ flexibility and controllability to program different colour sequences throughout the year.
Managing to be both dynamic and understated, the glowing, reflective installation has turned the bridge into an attraction in its own right.
