Donna Dederding from Zumtobel reveals the lights used to touch up The Panorama Museum of the Sacred Defense in Iran in this blog entry.

The Panorama Museum of the Sacred Defense in Iran is dedicated to the Iran-Iraq war that took place from 1980 to 1988. The historical artworks are highlighted through the minimalistic ARCOS LED spotlight. The museum is due to open very soon.

Zumtobel's Acros LED spotlights were used to illuminate art works in the museum.

The spherical shape of the building conveys a three-dimensional understanding from a two-dimensional image. Despite all the complexities and the various different sections of the building, which are all located underground, the outside of the museum appears to form a hemisphere in the middle of the water. The reflections from the water and the sky give the impression that the architecture is suspended from the sky. Around 1900 square metres are used for the art galleries situated inside the main dome, which include a rich collection of paintings, photos and artistic volumes.

It was a natural decision for the lighting solution partner Pars Idea Stack to propose the minimalistic ARCOS LED spotlight for the illumination of the important artworks. The combination of pinpoint accent lighting and wide-area illumination ensures that a special focus is placed on the exhibits. The UV-free and IR-free light is not only gentle on the exhibits but also helps to considerably reduce energy consumption when compared to conventional solutions.

Veteran artist Habibollah Sadeqi is working on an 80-metre long painting entitled “Liberation of Khorramshahr” that will be displayed in the Panoramic Museum of Sacred Defense. Sadeqi belongs to a generation who has kept the memories of the war days alive through his artworks. The painting is made up of of several pieces, which will be attached after completion. Sadeqi explained: “The painting is one of the most important works I have ever painted in the past four decades. It will be completed by May 2016.”
