Signify Illuminates a New Identity for London with Its Connected LED Lighting

As the lighting partner for London’s Illuminated River project, Signify updated the progress of the exciting lighting art and how connected LED lighting creates a novel identity of the city.

Iain Byrne, Project Manager of Illuminated River Project at Signify, addressed that urban lighting and architectural lighting serve as powerful tools in building impressive images for city landmarks.

“Light is one of the most powerful means of breathing new life into cities and metropolitan areas and is becoming more and more of a focus when it comes to urban design and beautification,” highlighted Byrne.

Signify has the first phase of the project, which includes testing and programming of all connected lighting points for London Bridge. The company has programmed nearly 2,000 light points to display over 16.9 million different light colors with stunning lighting effects for only one bridge. When the project completed, 15 bridges of River Thames with dynamic LED lighting will structure the world’s longest public art commission across London.

Currently, Southwark, Cannon, Millennium and London bridges have completed the pre-commissioning process in phase one of the project. This process involved the testing and programming of all connected lighting points. So far, over 6,000 light points for the first four bridges have been successfully programmed.

Signify’s Color Kinetics LED luminaires have been tested, programmed, and tagged to ensures that they are of the highest quality for meeting the needs of all stakeholders including the Illuminated River Foundation, the artist, Leo Villareal’s Studio as well as the London boroughs where the bridges are located. Interact Landmark’s architectural lighting management system is implemented to control all the lighting effects created by the LED light points.

The project is expected to be completed by 2022 with more than 13,000 luminaires installed.
