The Royal Court of Sweden added 100 x SGM’s P-2 LED wash lights to the entrance of Djurgården – the Royal National City Park in Stockholm.
With Sweden’s infamous dark winters, the planned light installation needs to improve the environment around the entrance of the Royal Park and provide different colours of lighting throughout the year. The installation uses 100 compact SGM P-2 LED wash lights along the main road leading into the King’s Island of Djurgården.
”During the planning process, we looked for a rugged, fairly small, fixture that would deliver most bang for the buck. That led us to SGM and the P-2 range,” says lighting designer Fredrik Jönsson Jönsson about his choice of fixture.
Project manager Inge-Björn Mossige-Norheim adds: “We did look at other alternatives, but ultimately selected SGM’s P-2 for its much clearer colours and the small form factor, presenting a lot of “bang for the buck” or “light output per kilo” – and the fact that it will withstand the climate. We were told that the fan in the unit can freeze without damaging it. We have tested that, and found it to be true.”
Located in Stockholm’s city centre, Royal Djurgården is a popular place both locals and tourists, attracting more than 15 million visitors per year – more than those visiting the Great Wall of China.
