LEDs Show the Sistine Chapel in a Whole New Light

Visitors to the Sistine Chapel can now see the frescos as they’ve never been seen before, thanks to a new LED lighting scheme. The new lights, provided by Osram, bring out the detail of the intricate paintings, while protecting them from harmful UV and slashing energy consumption. After 500 years, this extraordinary piece of art history can now be experienced in unprecedented quality, bathed in the light of more than 7,000 LEDs. The aim of the project was to demonstrate new possibilities for LED technology with regard to energy efficiency and improved quality of light, and thus to achieve more rapid market penetration for the new technology.
