Rapenburg Plaza provides Philips Selecon colour changing solution for National Military Museum
24 February 2015
King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands has opened a prestigious new cultural and historical institution at The Netherlands' former Soesterberg air base. The National Military Museum (NMM) is the largest of its kind in Europe and displays the significance of The Netherlands' armed forces. "The concept for the space is that each of the halls are interactive and follow a storyline," says lighting designer and Rapenburg Plaza partner Pelle Herfst. "We selected Selecon fixtures as excellent tools to achieve this. The DMX-controlled colour changing possibilities meant we were able to create a wide range of ambiences for the different thematic spaces. I am also very impressed by the optics of the PLprofile1."

Part of the 'Unlimited' disability arts festival, the piece was lit with eight Philips Selecon LED PLProfile1 luminaires, chosen for their crucial colourising flexibility by lighting designer John Ford. "I chose the PLProfile1 luminaires as I knew I needed something flexible to get as many lighting options as possible into a small space, and a conventional rig can be limiting in that sense," says Ford.
