The lighting design in the interior emphasises the architecture and interior design using systems integrated within the architecture, while also using crystals and objects of light to create a prestigious, festive atmosphere. ERCO supplied the recessed luminaires: wallwashers for the palladium-covered exterior of the auditorium and directional luminaires for accentuating the columns and window embrasures. These are also used to add sparkling light to the gigantic spheres made of Swarovski crystals. These are an avant-garde interpretation of the crystal chandelier and, as their light source, use efficient and long-life metal halide lamps.
The pathways to the building are marked out with Lightmark bollard luminaires, while its marble facade is illuminated with Tesis in-ground luminaires. Metal halide lamps are used here too, ensuring low energy consumption and natural colour rendition.
In addition to the 1850-seat auditorium, the Palace of International Forums also accommodates a large number of conference rooms and a banqueting hall. The accentuating lighting with brilliant light sources optimally presents the qualities of the high-quality materials and surfaces - examples include the ERCO recessed directional luminaires, which scenically illuminate the columns of a foyer with grazing light.
