The question of light colour
The planning phase saw intensive, drawn-out discussions between the lighting designers, Expomobilia representatives and several gallery owners concerning the appropriate light colour for an art fair focusing on contemporary art.
With the aid of ERCO LED light the designers were able to prove that uniform, neutral white light offered the best possible solution. Daniel Tschudy, project manager from the Reflexion consultancy responsible for the fair at the time, concisely noted that neutral white light doesn't bear this term for nothing. "With paintings and other works of art it really makes all colours, and not just the warm tones, radiate – thereby guaranteeing optimum colour rendition. It also gets on well with the daylight flooding into the exhibition halls." The world's leading art museums and galleries have long recognised such benefits and have modified their light accordingly.
