The South Tyrolean lighting manufacturer ewo recently presented their innovative modular ‘ewoLED technology’ within various outdoor lamps at this year’s light+building in Frankfurt. One of them is the ‘Gotham Street Lighting System’ which was developed in colaboration with lighting designer Steven Scott (Scotia Lighting), he created the photovoltaic panels for the mast system and the Danish architectural practice 3xn, who was responsible for the design of the lamp’s head. The project for the
Bella Center in Copenhagen was commissioned by the Danish Government with the mandate from the United Nations, it was presented within last year’s UN Conference on Climate Change for the first time.
“The goal of the ‘Gotham Street Lighting System’ project was to develop and realise a sustainable outdoor lighting system. The luminaires were designed in such a way as to offer a CO2 neutral lighting solution. The photovoltaic panels generate more energy than the system requires. The focal point of the UN Conference on Climate Change is to develop a comprehensive set of guidelines to combat global warming.”
“ewo is able to present a highly efficient and versatile solution for street lighting in the form of the LED modular system. ewo incorporates the following two principles throughout its LED lighting manufacturing process: highest quality and optimal modular configuration. The company is aiming its new product at other outdoor lighting producers and in doing so offers them a new system whose specifications set new standards – the product which offers consistent performance and efficiency fulfils norm EN13201up to the highest classification of M1.”
