    Shanghai shines with waterfront illumination

    Shanghai’s historic 1930’s Bund features tunable white LED façade lighting on 23 out of over 40 buildings that comprise the project to emphasize the classical color tones of this architectural masterpiece with: Signify’s Interact Landmark system, Color Kinetics ColorReach and eW Reach (now specified with ReachElite), Philips UniFlood and UniStrip LED luminaires. Interact Landmark is being used to monitor and maintain the lighting on the Shanghai Bund building as well as rooftops in the Pudong area and the Yangpu, Nanpu and Xupu bridges.


    Signify is committed to helping Chinese cities develop more eco-friendly business and tourist landmarks by using connected LED lighting to lower energy use and reduce operating costs. The city is expected to save 50-70% of annual lighting costs by moving to connected LED lighting, when compared to areas of Shanghai previously lit with conventional lighting.
