TurningTorso2 Brought To You By LED Lighting

This “Turning Torso” building in Sweden is the European Union’s tallest residential apartment building.  Its unique architecture features curving corridors inside the building and an equally distinctive exterior design.

What’s really impressive about this building is its lighting plan.  Architects designed a custom LED system that was integrated into the building’s round interior, which was quite a challenge.  Narrow, flexible LED modules were fitted into pre-made custom fixtures and then recessed into the ceiling.

The Turning Torso is included in the New York Museum of Art’s 25 Most Exciting Skyscrapers in the World exhibit.  Check out this article in LEDs Magazine for more details on the innovative lighting design.
