September 11, Moscow hosted two significant events for the lighting and electrical industries - the award ceremony of The Golden Photon Award 2019 and the 25th anniversary of the main Russian exhibition InterlightRussia | Intelligent Building Russia.
The architectural lighting project of the “LETO” shopping mall outperformed its competitors and won the nomination “Façade lighting of buildings and structures”.
For the fulfillment of this lighting concept special polycarbonate light boxes were designed in the form of petals duplicating the metal elements of the facade.
Light boxes were specially designed to give a maximally even light, equal in its brightness all over the entire surface. Each petal is lit from the inside by IntiDOT spotlights, so it is possible to control each light box and make the petals look vivid. Not only the petals but also the branches of the decoration are illuminated with the use of IntiDOT LED garlands with a 300 mm pitch. The degree of protection IP65 (IP67 for the driver) provides a long service life (no less than 50 000 hours) of the product in a wide temperature range varying from -40°C to + 55°C.
The entire facade illumination is controlled by pixel by means of MADRIX software which allows creating various variants of color-dynamic solutions. The lighting provides the following modes of the equipment operation: regular static and weakly dynamic modes for each day; modes for the New Year holidays; for public holidays and big sports victories. In addition, the modes are programmed to change automatically with a change of seasons: winter, spring, summer, autumn.
The Golden Photon Award was organized by independent industry consulting company Light Business Consulting.
The award is supported by the Eurasian Economic Commission, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation, GKU Energetika, the Honest Position Association, the Association of Energy Service Companies (RAESKO).
The general partner of the Prize is the Association of Manufacturers of LEDs and Systems Based on them (APSS). The strategic partner is the international exhibition of decorative and technical lighting, electrical and building automation Interlight Moscow, powered by Light + Building.
