Neumann & Müller sets the scene in Nürnberg
The European Coatings Show is an international trade fair covering the production of high quality paints and coatings, sealants, construction chemicals and adhesives. Taking place every two years at the Exhibition Centre Nürnberg, around 1,000 exhibitors from 43 countries presents their innovations before more than 25,000 visitors.
The Berlin office of German production company Neumann & Müller was commissioned to plan and execute the rigging, sound, lighting and media technology on the stand of Swiss speciality chemicals group Clariant. The requirement was for a homogeneous and extremely bright illumination of the ceiling panel — which became the concept for the lighting design and therefore the highlight of the booth. At the same time the colour temperature had to be adjustable to the 120 square meter luminous band encircling the stand.
This concept was implemented with the use of 140 SGM P-5 LED wash lights, which allow for controllable colour temperatures. For an overall consistent output, diffusion film was drawn in between the canopy and the LED fixtures.
Michael Herweg, MD of SGM Deutschland, comments: "If you look at the pictures, you would think that you are being presented with a rendering, due to the brightness and the smooth and even distribution of the light output. Here you can see immediately why such high-cost materials were utilised - the result is perfect."
