Signify illuminates Shanghai Bund with tunable white LED

Signify, formerly Philips Lighting, announced that it has dynamically lit the iconic Shanghai Bund which includes more than 40 historic buildings along the waterfront. This complements the project announced last November to give a lighting facelift for the Shanghai Municipality encompassing three bridges and 77 buildings in the financial and tourist districts. Shanghai's historic 1930's Bund features tunable white LED façade lighting on 23 out of over 40 buildings that comprise the project to emphasize the classical color tones of this architectural masterpiece with: Signify's Interact Landmark system, ColorKinetics ColorReach and eW Reach, Philips UniFlood and UniStrip LED luminaires. Interact Landmark is being used to monitor and maintain the lighting on the Shanghai Bund building as well as rooftops in the Pudong area and the Yangpu, Nanpu and Xupu bridges.

Signify is committed to helping Chinese cities develop more eco-friendly business and tourist landmarks by using connected LED lighting to lower energy use and reduce operating costs. The city is expected to save 50-70% of annual lighting costs by moving to connected LED lighting, when compared to areas of Shanghai previously lit with conventional lighting.
