The Royal Museum for Fine Arts (KMKSA)
After winning an international competition commissioned by the Flemish government in 2003, the Dutch architectural firm KAAN Architecten worked intensively on the complex masterplan for the renovation and extension of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp. The Flemish government's Department of Culture, Youth and Media invested around EUR 100 million in the overall renovation of the building, which, besides being one of the last examples of neoclassical architecture in Antwerp, houses a rich art collection spanning seven centuries: from the Flemish Primitives to the Expressionists, with works including paintings, drawings and sculptures. Well-established within the urban fabric, the museum was originally designed in the 19th century and opened to the public in 1890. The KMSKA ( Koninklijk Museum van de Schone Kunsten) was conceived as a daytime museum, where visitors could enjoy a stroll surrounded by beautiful works of art and the outdoor landscape, visible through the multiple openings to the city and the interior patios. One of KAAN's boldest choices was to completely conceal the museum extension within the existing structure. The new addition is not visible from the outside, this in order to emphasise the monumental character of the 19th century building in the southern quarter of Antwerp, which has progressively gained in value since the beginning of the 2000s due to public investments and urban transformations. The KMSKA is now divided into three areas: a public entrance, central exhibition spaces and offices at the rear of the building. From the Leopold de Wael square, a monumental staircase provides access to the museum and through large restored oak doors leads to the entrance hall, which houses an interactive information zone, a cafeteria, an auditorium, a bookshop with a coffee corner and a circular staircase leading to the street level, where are located a library, a cloakroom and a second entrance for large groups. From the lobby one then arrives at the majestic Keyser Hall, whose role is to introduce and direct visitors according to two different routes: one, ascending the grand staircase, leads to the main floor of the renovated 19th-century museum; the other, going straight ahead, leads visitors to the new 21st-century museum. For the renovation of the historical museum, the old magnificence was preserved as much as possible: visitors pass through a row of exhibition rooms painted in a color palette that refers directly to the museum's original colors. The ancient grandeur is recounted by the oak doors, tall columns and ornate plaster ceilings, some of them gilded. On the first floor, the subject of the extension, the bright, minimalist interior, without decoration of any kind, is characterised by ceilings with deep skylights, also white, which amplify the effect of the natural light pouring in from above. Artificial lighting was a novelty for this museum designed with natural lighting in mind. ARUP came up with a lighting concept that could be adapted to different architectural contexts and that would be able to meet different exhibition and conservation requirements. The choice fell on the Palco and Palco framer floodlights for a number of reasons: their minimalist shape allowed them to be inserted both in the historical part of the museum, opting for the black version, and in the contemporary part, where they were chosen in the white version. In terms of performance, the floodlights were chosen for the extreme reliability of the optics and their extension. Super spot, spot, medium and wide optics were used for a total of about 950 fixtures, of which about 40 were specifically made with Tunable White to be able to define the best color temperature for certain paintings. The BLE control system made it possible to overcome the difficulties related to the height of the rooms: in some cases the height from the floor to the track is 12 meters: working with manual dimming would have been very difficult. The Casambi protocol working with a meshed network ensures that each luminaire communicates with the others and in this way guarantees the connection of the whole system. Thanks to this protocol, specific lighting scenes were created for each room: dimming and color temperature for each painting were defined with the continuous presence of the museum curator. For the Adoration of the Magi, for example, painted by Peter Paul Rubens, multiple Palco fixtures are used to get a general uniform lighting effect. Certain areas of the painting were highlighted with some Palco framers in Tunable White to emphasize the blue hue near the camels with a cold color temperature and the red robes with a warmer color temperature. The luminaires are heavily dimmed, in some cases by 80 % and more, to ensure the preservation and protection of the paintings. An example for all: in the Rubens Zaal, for “The martyrdom of saint Apollonia” there were some accents done with the Palco Framer. The curator thought to an elliptical shape with the framer and used a neutral white to highlight the scene in the middle of the painting. This was dimmed down to a mere 2% which was enough to add some contrast. Passing to modern art, for “Landscape with a Girl Skipping Rope” by Salvador Dalì, extra emphasis was placed on the girl skipping rope in the middle. The painting naturally already has a chiaroscuro effect in the middle for make sure the viewer looks at the girl, but with the Palco framer it was enhanced. KAAN Architecten's architectural concept for the KMSKA is intended to be an enchanting journey in which visitors explore two contrasting and dialoguing museums, which are revealed little by little. The experience is never predictable, but always in balance: both paths are designed to serve art.

PRODUCT NEWS & INSPIRATION

FLAIR CYLINDER
The Flair Cylinder family is a series of pendant, surface, and wall mounted decorative luminaires featuring refined proportions, attention to detail, and minimalist versatility. It consists of the Flair Sleeve, Flair Diffuser, and Flair Glow Ring. The Flair Diffuser is available in 2" or 3" diameters, while the Flair Sleeve and Flair Glow Ring are available in 3" diameters only.
Pru1
We present Pru1 — sleek, minimal illumination. No power cord, nearly invisible mounting hardware options, an elegant linear luminaire at a petite 1.5˝ diameter. Ceiling Wash for wider spacing between luminaires, Flat and Focal Glow Wall Washes for layers of light, Prudential Lighting is always pressing the boundaries to create superior performance. More than sixty-five years since our first fixture, we are beginning again with Pru1. Ceiling Wash Vs. Symmetric Indirect illumination is often too bright directly above luminaires. Our Symmetric distribution is best utilized for open ceilings or mounting distance of at least 24 inches. Our Ceiling Wash gently washes ceilings with more even illumination. Why two Wall Washes? Flat Wall Wash Bathes walls in soft, even floor-to-ceiling light to create a monolithic accent wall. Fixture placement (setback) is critical. Too close to the surface being lit, and the evenness is compromised. Too far, and the floor will be lit. We aim for max intensity at 20 degrees, so for a 8 to 9-foot mounting the fixture is placed 36 inches away. Focal Glow Wall Wash Bathes walls in soft, even floor-to-ceiling light to create a monolithic accent wall. Fixture placement (setback) is critical. Too close to the surface being lit, and the evenness is compromised. Too far, and the floor will be lit. We aim for max intensity at 20 degrees, so for a 8 to 9-foot mounting the fixture is placed 36 inches away. Designed to highlight artwork or add drama to a vertical surface, the max intensity angle is raised to about 40 degrees – creating a sweeping curve with a highlight at eye level falling off smoothly above and below. Here too, placement is essential for desired effect. Too close and the highlight area intensifies, moving too high up the wall, place it too far away and the dynamic quality gets muted. 36 inches is typically the proper distance, again dependent upon mounting height.
Sanibel
Sanibel is minimalist and modern, with a unique curved body and indirect uplight that creates a subtle bit of illumination without drawing attention to itself. Depending on the finish color chosen, Sanibel can blend into the wall for a clean, quiet effect.
