In museums, everything revolves around conveying stories, art, and history. The right lighting is crucial to present artworks and exhibitions at their best. Linear LED lighting offers a modern and energy-efficient solution that allows museums to illuminate their collections impressively.

Choose an appropriate color temperature (usually between 2700K and 4000K) that suits the ambiance you want to create. Warm light radiates coziness, while cooler light can provide a more modern look. Install the lighting so that it falls evenly and without shadows on the artworks. Ensure an adequate distance from the art to prevent damage from heat.

  • Place LED strips along the contours of architectural elements such as arches, columns, or vaults to emphasize their beauty.
  • Use linear LED lighting along corridors and aisles to create an inviting and safe path for visitors.
  • Adjust the color and intensity of the LEDs to create different atmospheres, whether it's a serene and contemplative ambiance or a lively event atmosphere.
  • Opt for cove lighting along gallery walls to create a unique ambiance. Cove lighting can also be used to highlight architectural details in the museum, such as vaults, columns, or striking structures.
