The lighting renovation of the Taipei 101 Tower in Taiwan with a state-of-the-art dynamic LED lighting system has been done by Signify. Philips lighting technology has truly transformed the façade of the building between the 97th and 100th floors with a Color Kinetics LED lighting display consisting of more than 10,000 individually controllable light points.
The world’s highest dynamic wall lighting display bathes the top of Taipei 101 in vibrant colours and uses less electricity than a large toaster. According to the lighting designer Uno Lai, the most challenging aspect of the light show was integrating the sound and lighting with the systems. The technology involved in Taipei 101 surpasses anything seen in European or American buildings at the moment.
The Taipei 101 Tower, once the tallest building in the world, is an iconic landmark in Taipei, Taiwan, and more than 300 meters (984 feet) tall. In 2005, the New Year Fireworks Show became the focus of international attention when it became the world’s first supertall skyscraper to host a fireworks display.
For the 2016 New Year celebration, a light show and countdown to the New Year was developed using the new lighting. This lighting show was coordinated with the fireworks display for the first time, providing a dazzling spectacle for viewers.
