Futuristic Apartment Tower Lit By Motion-Sensing LEDs


The new "Turning Torso" residential tower in Malmö, Sweden, is not only an architectural feat but a state-of-the-art example use of LEDs for residential lighting. Guests or residents heading to apartments on the upper floors are greeted with automatic lighting triggered by motion sensors for LEDs. No additional light sources are necessary, and LEDs thus demonstrate their potential in "real" lighting solutions. The main objective for the lighting installations in the corridor areas was to keep service costs down throughout the lifespan of the equipment. The tower is also supplied with 100% locally produced renewable energy, and the tower is said to be living up to the objective of 105 kWh per square meter per year. :: LED Magazine
