The Canon Corporation occupy a prominent Kowloon skyscraper called Oterprise Square. Located in the Tsim Sha Tsui district, Canon has recently employed Laservision to provide a turnkey lighting design based on the following objectives;
- Energy efficiency (particular attention was needed to minimise consumption),
- Super bright,
- Minimal maintenance,
- A need for viewing to be viable from oblique angles,
- Consideration for the highly reflective nature of the buildings exterior.
The design utilises high powered (6 watt) LED dots and has set a benchmark for environmentally sustainable skyscraper lighting. 14 rows of LED dots have been installed along each of the building’s external ribs and the design cleverly solves light trespass and light pollution issues that are problematic in illuminating glass surfaces. The final view provides spectators with intensely bright colour changing effects, regardless of the audiences viewing position.
The low energy design utilises only 1800 watts at a cost of under USD $2.00 per night*. At such a low energy requirement, this lighting design has the option to be serviced by sustainable energy solutions such as solar power.
Clients enjoy the economic reward of high quality LED design with an individual fixtures globe lasting 70,000 – 80,000 hours. A lifetime of approximately 15 years ! In comparison, traditional wash lighting fixtures have an expected lamp life of approximately 3000 hours.
The Canon Corporation now look forward to participating in Hong Kong's 'Symphony of Lights' Show.
While both the Australian and Hong Kong markets are at the forefront of energy consumption sensitivity, Laservision has focused and will continue to develop low energy lighting solutions.
