LED Lighting to Tell Historical Stories of Iceland

A culture center and museum in Iceland has recently transformed with the luminaires from Altman lighting to more sophisticatedly transmit the stories and legacy of Thorbergur Thordarson, an Islandic writer and the region of Suðursveit in South-East Iceland.

A lighting designer at Luxor Lighting, Alfreð Sturla Böðvarsson created an elegant, story-telling design to build a unique and theatrical-style exhibition using Gallery LED and PHX 150W LED profile luminaires from Altman Lighting.

The Gallery Series from Altman Lighting is designed to serve versatile solutions. Getting started in the installation, Böðvarsson and the team at Luxor knew exactly where they needed to place the lighting fixtures in order to complete the design. Knowing that the museum wanted the retrofitted design to stand the test of time, they were confident they had the right solutions to complete the story.

Böðvarsson said,“From the start I decided that it would be best to use spot fixtures with shutters, as I needed to light the exhibition sets in a theatrical style. I also had the added constraint of keeping all the lighting angles very steep where the museum visitors would be walking, in order to minimize glare and guest interference in the lights. We needed to emphasize both the depth and quality of the sets, so I decided to keep all the fixtures in the ceiling, as I believe exhibition lighting should be as invisible as possible.”
