Perfectly blending the old with the new, Sylvania has delivered a lighting upgrade with wireless controls at one of Poland’s oldest and largest museums, The District Museum in Toru´n. The new scheme provides dynamic accent lighting from Concord Beacon Muse II LED spotlights combined with SylSmart Standalone to selectively highlight individual works of art and give the museum the ability to configure the ambience of the room.
The District Museum in Toru´nCase study
Located in the Ratusz hall of Toru´n, the museum’s 300 m² Grand Hall is home to the country’s largest and most prominent collection of sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth-century bourgeois portraits and coats of arms, ‘The gallery of burgher’s portraits’. Displayed across the hall’s vast pillars between set back windows, the museum needed a flexible lighting system that would enable them to highlight individual paintings or the whole collection for the rising number of high-profile events they were hosting. The lighting scheme upgrade saw the installation of 30 Concord Beacon Muse II LED spotlights and SylSmart Standalone wireless lighting control system.
Agnieszka Tybus-Bugajska, Deputy director of organization and administration District Museum in Toru´n commented; “We wanted an effective, high-quality lighting scheme that provided us with the flexibility to create tailored environments for the display of our portrait collection and ensure a memorable experience for visitors and those that attend our many events throughout the year.
