On behalf of the City of Malmö, a new lighting design for the bridge with 240 pillars, was requested. The bridge is one of the 14 bridges that run over the inner ringway around Malmö, all of them with their own lighting design. The purpose of the new lighting is to make the bridge a local landmark for the commuters.
For more information: Segekarusellen
The first phase of the project was to lit up 80 of the 240 pillars. Custom-made brackets and vandalism protection has been developed by me together with Malmö City Technical Department. The second phase consisted of the is the effect lighting – under the bridge, a stream goes and above that stream, there are going to be water reflections. Over the cycle path, two squares are going to be projected to get a feeling of two lanternin-windows. To test these effects, a mock-up on site was done.
