Shanghai Bund illuminated with tunable white LEDs

Signify has announced that it has dynamically lit the iconic Shanghai Bund which includes more than 40 historic buildings along the waterfront. This complements the project announced last November to give a lighting facelift for the Shanghai Municipality encompassing three bridges and77buildings in the financial and tourist districts.

Shanghai's historic 1930's Bund features tunable white LED façade lighting on 23 out of over 40 buildings that comprise the project to emphasise the classical colour tones of this architectural masterpiece with: Signify's Interact Landmark system, Colour Kinetics ColourReach and eW reach, Philips UniFlood and UniStrip LED luminaires. Interact Landmark is being used to monitor and maintain the lighting on the Shanghai Bund building as well as rooftops in the Pudong area and the Yangpu, Nanpu and Xupu bridges.

Signify is committed to helping Chinese cities develop more eco-friendly business and tourist landmarks by using connected LED lighting to lower energy use and reduce operating costs. The city is expected to save 50-70% of annual lighting costs by moving to connected LED lighting, when compared to areas of Shanghai previously lit with conventional lighting.

The lighting design for the historic Shanghai Bund facades involved a host of designers including:

  • Fisher Marantz & Stone in association with Uno Lai Lighting Design & Associates were the Project Concept Advisors and designers of The Customs House and Pudong Development Bank facades
  • UNOLAI Lighting Design & Associates designed the Asia Building and The House of Roosevelt, Shanghai Clearing House facades
