SGM selected for the opening ceremony of Hannover Fair

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Hannover Fair is the top industrial fair in the world. Henning Schletter from imaginary lights was responsible for the lighting design of the opening ceremony and he put his trust in the new G-4 wash lights from SGM:

"I chose the new G-4 from SGM as a front light, because I needed not only a high degree of flexibility but also the white light quality. Another advantage is the wide range of colors that the fixture offers because of the two additional colors. The two extra colors, amber and mint, provide a wide color spectrum for lighting professionals to truly explore the artform of lighting design.”

Henning Schletter is not only enthusiastic about the light quality, but also the low energy consumption of the G-4 Wash contributed to his decision to select the SGM fixture. Green Tec and Energy are central themes at the Hannover Fair, which further influenced Henning Schletter to use only highly efficient LED lights for the setup.

"Just a few years ago I needed about 150 kW for the same event. Today, I come with less than 30 kW, although I use significantly more lamps with much more power," says Henning Schletter full of enthusiasm. "With only eight G-4s, I have been able to accomplish the entire front lighting thanks to the advanced LED technology."

Hannover Messe is organized by Deutsche Messe AG and the lighting for the opening ceremony was supplied by Gahrens+Battermann’s Berlin department. The light setup was operated by Flo Erdmann.
