LDR light-up the dark Swedish winter:


• The façade of the Ahlens Holm
shopping centre in Stockholm.

Twelve special versions of the Canto 1200MSR followspot light up Stockholm’s most important shopping centre façade. 
Located in the heart of the city, close to the central square ,“”Ahlens Holm”” is the reference for shopping in the whole city area. 
This permanent installation is one element of a campaign to boost the shopping trade during the dark Swedish winter. 
The original idea of the lighting designer was to empathize and renew the external façade by matching the original building design with three stripes of light. 
After having approached various companies, inviting them to throw suggestions about the project, Madeco (LDR dealer) and Abstract Teknisk Design were selected for the project as they came up with a cost effective solution and could match the customer’s needs. To better understand the final result, the original project was first realized on computer and then finally tested with one sample unit. 
Test results had evidenced the need to place the followspot on the roof of the building opposite to AHLENS HOLM in critical outdoor environment. 
Following extensive discussions with Stockholm city council, the shopping centre owners Ramsbury AB c/o Catella Property Projekts AB, properties were allowed to proceed with the installation. 
To avoid damages from the rain, a water-proof case has been designed around the luminaires and a heating system has been installed to warm the Cantos when the outside temperature drops below 5°C. 
Lighting the three stripes of the building was possible by placing a three-stripe pattern, B-size gobo inside a specially designed gobo-holder. 
Special thanks to Toivo Soldberg (MADECO), which follow up the development of the project and the final supply and installation of the units, Martin Spigel (ABSTRACT) who has taken care of completing the installation, and to the project manager Helena Bjornberg (LJUS & GESTALTNING AB) and the consultant Rune Olofsson (ACNL-ELTEKNIK AB).
