Toshiba develops new LED lighting for the Louvre
The Lighting system created by the Japanese company Toshiba will be used in several rooms of the famous louvre Museum in Paris. One of the rooms will have new lighting will be home to the iconic work of Leonardo Da Vinci: La gioconda or mona Lisa.
This change in the lighting of the museum is part of an agreement with the Japanese company. In fact, in 2010 and had begun the work of replacing the lighting in the museum on the outside of the museum including the glass pyramid, involving energy savings of up to 73% and similarly reducing CO2 emissions.
The lighting for the room where the Mona Lisa will be completed by 2013 and will be unique, but Toshiba will continue to work at the museum until 2023.
The benefits of LED lighting are particularly exceptional museums. Natural light tends to damage almost all the artificial light but also makes it less and works of art such as those housed in the Louvre are very sensitive to any kind of light, the new lighting in addition to representing a saving implies a less wear of the works on display there.
