Signify has partnered with Central Public Works Department (CPWD) to light up the Parliament House and spread the message of hope on the occasion of International Day of Light.
International Day of Light underlines the potential of light to foster peace and sustainable development. On this occasion, the 93-year old landmark was illuminated with a dynamic simulation that used an advanced light consisting of over 875 ColorKinetics lighting fixtures.
The simulation started with vibrant colors depicting the diversity of the country and then changed to a subtle show of five colors that denote the five elements of the universe, as a symbolic representation of the world coming together in this endeavor to recover. Then, the lights turned from red, to orange, to green and then to bright in blue. And finally, the building glimmered in the glorious tri-colors of Indian National Flag as an indicator of unity and solidarity in this time of darkness.
The dynamic lighting system is controlled, monitored, and managed using Signify’s Interact Landmark connected lighting software. Interact Landmark’s fault detection, alerts, and troubleshooting capabilities helps to reduce downtime and keep the site looking spectacular.
Speaking on the occasion, Sumit Padmakar Joshi, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Signify Innovations India Limited said, “The initiative is a reminder of hope and positivity during an extremely difficult time. We at Signify, believe that light is fundamental to a progressive society and its sustainable development goals, and the International Day of Light is a perfect opportunity to harness its powers in an effort to bring the country together. This initiative is also a mark of our renewed commitment to look for solutions in lighting technology for a ‘new normal’ that we find ourselves in today. We are thankful to CPWD for being our partner in this effort.’’
