Effectively staging artwork and scientific objects in exhibitions, naturally in the best possible light, is defined as much by the curatorial stipulations as by the cultural environment and the zeitgeist. We have developed a wide range of LED spotlights with Spherolit technology to give exhibition organisers the broadest possible scope for design, from the neutral presentation of objects through to dramatically accentuated enhancement. For decades, ERCO has given focus to the perfect perception of art enhancing it with precise and efficient lighting technology to preserve the art while rendering it in brilliant colours.

Museums alter cities and regions

The design and construction of museums has developed into a showcase discipline of architecture. Projects such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao alter the perception of whole regions and, as a result, also their economic reality. Light not only makes art visible, it adds impressive scenography.

Presenting and preserving art

Collections with enormous material and ideal values need to be placed in the best possible light. The lighting technology has to successfully integrate the often contradictory demands of visitors and art conservationists regarding the protection of the exhibits.

Creating light signals for urban spaces

Holistic lighting concepts that also consider the external effect will transform museum buildings into nocturnal symbols of their respective locations. Glazed buildings that shine from the inside out attract attention in and to their environment.

Illuminating walls with artwork

Special lighting tools are required for illuminating vertical surfaces absolutely evenly. Especially in the area of wallwashers, ERCO offers an unparalleled wide selection of differentiated lighting instruments.

Accentuating points of interest with spotlights

High-quality spotlights provide accent lighting in museums.
The criteria needed to ensure the quality of a scenic lighting installation are: the availability of different light intensity distribution characteristics, an extensive range of accessories and details such as lockable positioning.

LED technology for quality lighting and energy savings

The advantages of LED technology include excellent luminous efficacy, long life and a light spectrum without IR and UV radiation. Brilliant light and excellent colour rendition are further bonuses of efficient LED lighting.
