Dutch courage

The Groninger Museum in Holland has enlisted the help of lighting specialist Ralph van den Berg and designer Maarten Baas.

The brief was to keep the existing scheme design but to replace it with more energy efficient light sources.

The project required the combined light source and fitting to have a maximum cross-section of 10cm and deliver the luminosity of a 50W halogen lamp. It also had to be dimmable.

The solution was the installation of 550 Megaman PAR16 8W GU10 2800K LED lamps throughout the museum’s oval-shaped access rooms, entrance area and restaurant.
