创新 & 难点 Innovation & Difficulties
1）Diamond light customized
Designer proposed feasible light source parameters, lens material and cutting requirements, and work along with manufacturers to develop the diamond light source; In order to meet the installation requirements of aluminum profile facade, the linear light appearance should be customized, and the dynamic diamond flashing effect be realized by control system.
2）Integration of light source and Alu Facade
Due to the complex structure of the modular aluminum profile facade, need to work closely with Alu profile structural designer to finalize the grooves on Alu profile for diamond light fitting installation and wiring layout, to realize the effect of "Inlaying diamonds" on Alu profile.
Considering that the project is located along the main road and in residential areas, traffic safety and light pollution of residential environment need to be strictly controlled; Multi-mode configuration required by different time periods, including energy-saving mode.
