Lumenpulse Lights up the Sölvesborg Bridge
LED technology illuminates the longest bicycle and pedestrian bridge in Europe.
At 756 meters long, the Sölvesborg Bridge is the longest bicycle and pedestrian bridge in Europe. To develop a lighting scheme that would enhance the bridge’s distinctive look – without harming the local habitat – design firm Ljusarkitektur turned to Lumenpulse LED technology.
“We’ve had good experiences with Lumenpulse on previous projects, and when tested, their fixtures delivered the results we wanted,” Lina Färje, lighting designer at Ljusarkitektur.
The firm used 24 Lumenfacade Color Changing luminaires to graze the suspension cables and light the distinctive arches. A custom, deep glare shield was also developed to hide the light sources and prevent glare.
Colors are preprogramed for different scenarios, including migratory patterns of birdlife in the area, and special events in the city. The end result has managed to be both dynamic and understated, turning the bridge into a local landmark.
“This project is another example of the flexibility and durability of LED,” says Jesse Lilley, Lumenpulse Senior Vice-President of Marketing. “It allowed them to create something truly elegant and dynamic, while still being environmentally friendly. We’re very happy to have been a part of it,” he said.
