Panasonic LED Lighting to illuminate the worlds tallest free standing broadcast structure- Tokyo Skytree
Panasonic will be the sole supplier of LED lighting to be used to light up the world’s tallest free standing broadcast structure, the Tokyo Skytree, scheduled for completion in May 2012. Only LED lighting will be used to illuminate the Tokyo Skytree. This includes 1,995 LED lighting fixtures and a LED lighting display system, which will dress the 634-meter tower in elegant, subtle nuances of light, while also addressing the modern day environmental need to conserve energy. The illumination of the Tokyo Skytree produced using eco-conscious lighting has combined beautiful lighting sequences brought to life by the beauty of shadows with the strong desire to be in harmony with the surrounding environment.
The Tokyo Skytree is a digital terrestrial broadcasting tower currently being constructed in the Oshiage area of Tokyo’s Sumida ward. When completed, its total height of 634 meters will make it the tallest free standing broadcast structure in the world, overtaking the 553.33-meter CN Tower in Toronto. And it will stand as the second tallest building in the world after Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which measures 828 meters.
