Edelvives. Zaragoza


The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.

"Oscar Wilde"

Evolution and transformation.
125 years of history.

The museum, located in an old deconsecrated chapel, wanted to preserve various elements such as stained glass windows, the mosaic and the carving of the Virgin, giving them their place and making them protagonists of the spatial configuration.

The goal of the project is to show the evolution and transformation of a publishing editorial with more than 125 years of history, taking into account both its historical and material content, as well as the current situation of a leading company in the implementation of technological changes in the educative and editorial sector.

With this installation, a second life is given to the old chapel that the Maristas Brothers had in the main headquarters of the Edelvives editorial house in Zaragoza.

The importance of light
in museums.

The light colour, quantity, and distribution are vital role to help us to transform these spaces into stimulating areas, and enjoy the pieces at their best. It also allows us to being able to observe all their chromatic nuances, shapes and textures.

To carry out the lighting project, the FCLD lighting designer's studio chose SAKMA's experience for the general lighting, display stands and light boxes for stained-glass windows.

Our Tunable White Technology
The right light, in the right place, at the right time.

CRI, colour temperature, optics, heat dissipation, ultraviolet and infrared radiation are very important factors to control in order not to damage the works.

For general lighting, the linear modular suspension LSK 50 fixtures were installed. These luminaires add great versatility to the space and are very suitable to create continuous and uniform light without shadows.

The exhibitors were lit with Light Stick HI + and Backlight 40, and TiraLed Extreme Tunable White were used to light up the windows, which allows us to emulate the natural light. The tunable white technology allows us to manage and adjust the color temperature throughout the day, from a warm to a cold colour temperature.

Using SAKMA microcontrollers and specific algorithms, we can ensure the colour temperature remains constant during dimming, and that the intensity remains constant in the process of changing the colour temperature, thereby maintaining the Colour Rendering Index (CRI).
