Philips’ LED lighting for The State Hermitage in Saint-Petersburg (World’s Largest Museum)
Honoring the 200th anniversary of the Victory in the Patriotic War of 1812, new LED lighting has been presented by Philips and the State Hermitage. With the new lighting, the General Staff Building and the Chariot of Glory now gives square artistic distinctiveness and highlights its architectural elements at night. The winged chariot still virtually hovers over the square even after the sunset too.
The Arch of the General Staff Building serves as the entrance to the Palace square. It is also a war memorial of the Patriotic War Victory. Three coupled arches that are decorated with bas-reliefs illuminated the arches and the front of the construction, thanks to Philips. Powerful LED lighting that provides bright white light also illuminates the sculpture of the Chariot of Glory.
The Leader of Philips in Russia said that the realization of this project has further strengthened their already longstanding relationship with the State Hermitage.
