Dynamic LED lighting becomes the view

VUE Restaurant OUE Bayfront, Singapore


VUE Restaurant OUE Bayfront, Singapore

Š 5th Avenue Singapore

Situated in the prestigious OUE Bayfront on Collyer Quay in Singapore, VUE attracts high-profile clients. So, Klaasen Lighting Design (KLD) was tasked with using light to provide a more comfortable and dynamic dining experience for guests. Founder and Director Martin Klaasen wanted to achieve a unique ambience with dynamic

color, using an indirect light distribution to illuminate the restaurant’s curved ceiling. Klaasen selected Color Kinetics PureStyle IntelliHue Powercore, a premium interior concealed luminaire, iPlayer 3 controller, and Data Enabler Pro to provide integrated data and power. IntelliHue was chosen because of its unique capability to precisely control a variety of white and colored light from the same luminaire.

NYPA brings smart street lighting to the State of New York New York Power Authority New York, USA


Smart Street Lighting NY was launched in early 2018 by Governor Andrew Cuomo with an ambition to replace at least half of New York’s one million streetlights with energyefficient and sustainable alter­ natives.

Through the program, NYPA provides financial, logistical, technical, and informational support to help cities upgrade their street lighting to connected LED. Interact City IoT lighting software gives municipalities the option of leveraging the connected street lighting system to deploy smart solutions citywide.


“As we implemented Smart Street Lighting NY, we came to understand that these systems are no longer used just to illuminate roads. They are in fact vertical assets that can be utilized for smart city deployment.” Gil Quiniones, President and CEO, NYPA Case study PDF ›
