The large exhibition hall, into which daylight enters through glazing on two sides and from above, was named after the glass craftsman Per Steen Hebsgaard. Here, selected works from his many years at Holmegaard are on display, during which he brought to life designs by major artists such as Per Kirkeby and Bjørn Nørgaard.
As part of the ERCO individual service, a special variant of the Parscan spotlight with a short mounting bracket was developed and, in combination with Stella spotlights modified with RBGW LED, was mounted on steel posts of varying heights in the hall. The Stella spotlights create a cool contrasting light on the works or else accentuate them with warm colours such as amber.
Work (once again) in the old Holmegaard Værk glassworks: glassblowing demonstrations give visitors to the museum an impression of the traditional handicraft. A crew of experienced glass workers demonstrates the processes in a new, modern hotshop. High lumen-output Parscan 48W floodlights on track provide optimal light for the challenging work at the furnace.
A black box was integrated into the former glassworks as a room-within-a-room structure completely without the incidence of daylight, in which changing exhibitions of fragile works of art can be seen. To be able to align the lighting as flexibly as possible to the respective exhibits, a dense track system (with spacing of only one metre) was installed beneath the newly installed ceiling.
The custom version of the Parscan spotlight with short mounting bracket was used here as well, in addition to Stella spotlights modified with RBGW LED. Not only the number of luminaires, but also their alignment, luminous intensity, distribution and the light colour of the Stella can be flexibly adapted via Casambi Bluetooth to the exhibitions in the space which change every three to six months.

High-output Parscan spotlights as well as Stella spotlights modified with RBGW LED create powerful, efficient and precise accent lighting, in some cases also with coloured light: not only the exhibits themselves, but also the surroundings such as floor areas and steps, were designed by the lighting designer with use of coloured light, incorporating sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic contrasts.
On a gigantic, approximately 34 metre-long table, glass objects from Holmegaard are displayed on the one side with ceramic objects by Kähler on the other, which have been part of Danish table culture for almost 200 years. Optec spotlights on track with narrow spot (approx. 8°) and spot (approx. 15°) distribution accentuate the objects.
Floor-to-ceiling shelving 40 metres wide and an impressive seven metres in height accommodate more than 40,000 objects from over 200 years of glass history. One of the largest and most important collections of its kind in Scandinavia, it contains unique pieces, not only from Holmegaard, but also from the Kastrup and Odense glassworks.
Compar linear pendant luminaires with oval wide flood distribution (approx. 60° x 80°) create dimmable glare-free lighting with high visual comfort above the desks in the first floor offices and meeting rooms. The black anti-glare louvre of the pendant downlights enables the luminaire to blend with the material and colour of the ceiling.
