Philips Lighting LED luminaires behind translucent glass in St Davidís shopping centre in Cardiff can create a change of scenes and animated displays.

A major extension to St Davidís shopping centre in Cardiff include Philips Lighting LED luminaires in an illuminated wall running the length of the escalators linking the refurbished centre with the new St Davidís 2 development to the south. The iColor Flex SLX LED luminaires prove the opportunity to create a range of scenes and animated displays.

The St Davidís 2 shopping centre has an area of 89 900 m2 and is a joint venture between Land Securities and Capital Shopping Centres. It includes over a hundred new shops, 25 new cafes and restaurants and luxury residential accommodation.

The lighting is designed by Building Design Partnership.

135 luminaires have been installed behind a translucent glass screen. Each luminaire comprises 50 tri-colour RGB individually addressable LED nodes and linked to a Pharos LPC40 control system. Each RGB node has an embedded Chromacore chip, so any node can produce virtually any colour at any time.
