The UNESCO Day of Light with EHRGEIZ

November 2018

After the great success of the Year of Light in 2015, the UNESCO decided to declare May 16th as the "International Day of Light".

The date was chosen wisely, as on that day in 1960 Theodore Maiman had the first working laser, a ruby laser, put into operation. With this he created a milestone in lighting technology.

This year, UNESCO celebrated this special day at its headquarters in Paris with a magnificent light installation by the Finnish light artist Kari Kola. He put the entire UNESCO building and the surrounding architectural sights in the right light impressively. For this he mainly used EHRGEIZ products such as the Chroma Blue and the SuperNova RGBW, two bright surface washlights for outdoor use.

The result was amazing and we are looking forward to the upcoming installations of this fabulous artist.
