Eiffel Tower for the first time installed

Eiffel Tower for the first time installed - DE CAGNA UN MONDO DI LED


Eiffel Tower


The structure was built in less than two years, from 1887 to 1889, during the Second Industrial Revolution and is widely regarded as one of the examples of architectural art as the most extraordinary, is unquestionably one of the most representative symbol of Paris throughout the world. Its significance has grown over the centuries: witness at first,the progress of humanity than ever before with the industry's impact on the art world, it has added meaning for the construction of national defense and finally a symbol of a nation and tourist attraction. The majestic construction is formed at the base by four arched pillars, which are united in support of the structure, tapering upwards, and is interrupted by three platforms, each of which has a large lookout. Since 2000, the tower is lit by 352 lights sparkle in the evening and every hour with 20,000 strobe lights,ensuring a very impressive visual effect.

As
the structures and techniques for making use of the company De Cagna, are becoming increasingly ingenious and revolutionary also the inspiration for the design of new projects is projected into the future, not only for the use of a light clean and modern, but mainly thanks to the inventiveness of artists De Cagna, who never ceases to surprise, leaving room for large firms improbable run.
Tangible example of the continuing progress towards representations that in turn gives rise to confusion and astonishment among the people is undoubtedly the setting for the famous "Falla Sueca" 2011 in Valencia.
A science fiction as the entrance to the building colors and eccentric shapes rise four mighty towers rising to heights (from 14,10m to 18,10 m) towards the center of the pediment, the loggia closed higher (20,60 m) to form the 'hypothetical facade of a majestic castle radiating only LED light.
At the center under the arms framed by intricate geometric forms, the opening of a tunnel with three naves light proceeds in the form of time since the overlap of three identical circles. Approximately 106m long (with the continuation of an elegant espalier of 23,50 m) the structure is an ideal reference to Einstein-Rosen bridge or tunnel time and space, the illusory idea developed in the early twentieth century of a gravity tunnel, which goes from one point to another universe and allow the matter to travel faster than light would take to travel the distance through normal space, according to scientific theories not yet proven, this shortcut could potentially allow time travel.
Post to invoke the idea of outer space, the background 3 stars close the three circles of the tunnel bringing out the most extraordinary things in perspective.
The work on the facade is completely covered by light blue with hints of the same color placed along the arches to hold up the entire gallery space, the color choice that goes well with the white ice of the drapes, also makes the idea of infinite space where a succession of balls and shimmering three-dimensional drops, have the dream image of an open door on the universe. The entire project consists of well 176632 and 147200 microlamps of  LED.
Further to illuminate and outline the shape of the square oblique four compositions (by 19632 light bulbs) about 10m high made
of rich concentric rosettes, even here the circle is the meaningful part of the whole creation, the cosmos, the infinite, the idea of the supernatural.
Aggravating this reference in the two side streets three arches 9,50 m high and 8,40 m wide, placed symmetrically with respect to the central square of 10500 light bulbs.
Conversely the tunnel described above unfolds along the second stretch of road Falla Sueca, a long tunnel formed by the repetition rate of 12 arches that led to continue for about 124 m ending with a high  pediment of 18 m. Made a total of 37674 bulbs, also follows the style of the first installation, giving vent to colors and new forms of experimentation, thus acting not only by the monumental entrance to get to work gradually toward the mammoth of the tunnel, but also the background, looking at the entire design from the main entrance, where the eye is automatically guided towards the furthest point of flight, powering the concept plans and infinite spaces.
The whole object is 258148 light bulbs and has a consumption of about 250KW, the architecture is incredibly innovative, intimidating and almost stuns the viewer who walks all the way and especially going through the tunnel structure of implausible space and time has made the idea of being in another world, time seems to take a different course, the huge size of the project, the chromaticity whimsical and sophisticated likely to give the idea of a fourth dimension, as if it crossed actually a parallel universe all to be amazing and almost unreal.






LIGHT is the subject of our company, not only the real creative medium being able to emphasize and highlight buildings' geometry and art forms, but also the active subject of an expressive language variously modulated and mouldable. Light is a meaningful sign conveying a world of emotions, feelings, thoughts and vibrations. Light is a great mean expressing spatial and temporal suggestions, actions and moods. Light designs and creates spaces, atmospheres and depths, structuring itself as a constructing element of places, times and relations. Our intent is analysing the relation between light and architecture, light and art, each helping the other to be revealed. Our company is capable of doing this not only in a functional, but also in a poetical way thanks to the aid competent artists.
Our company has always paid attention to the environmental impacts and to energy saving. With the presentation of the new 3 LED bulb (also available with 2 LED) being held in SCORRANO the 5th,6th and 7th of July, the journey begun in 2006, when our first exhibition (a gallery) all decorated with LED was presented, will finally end. In that occasion truly unexpected results were achieved, especially those concerned with the brightness of the so called WARM WHITE LED lamp, which reached almost the same intensity of the incandescent lamp. Once terminated the developing process of the 3 LED lamp, which, however, has not been abandoned and it is still being followed with the same attention, the procedure of replacing the incandescent lamp on its structures has begun. The new LED lamps will be directly installed on the new structures (such as the
Tower of Pisa which will be presented in Scorrano), while the existing structures are being updated little by little, so that in 2010 an event or an exhibition all decorated with LED will be set up. For instance an exhibition of 160,000 lamps with the traditional incandescent lamp produces a power consumption of 800Kwt. However, from 2010 with the new LED lamp the incredible amount of just 70Kwt will be consumed. This striking result, within the traditional illumination of Salento, opens new scenarios previously unimaginable, with much fewer problems to be faced in the implementation of an event or an exhibition, called FESTA. 
Features of the LED lamp: same shape of the old lamp operating with the same electricity grid and screwing on the same lamp socket can use 12V with only a small trick or change in operation, thereby resolving the safety problem, a furhter issue related to the world of illumination
the optical effect is greatly improved since the colours are real and not obtained through the addition of coloured plastics.
Advantages of the LED lamp: longer durability (incandescent bulb 4000h - LED 70000h) - zero maintenance - lower energy consumption (90% less) - no wear of the lamp - higher impact resistance due to the plastic bulb.

Installation on a diamond - Otranto

"The Castle of Crossed Destinies, " from 12.06.10 to 26.09.10.
To borrow and paraphrase the title of a book by Italo Calvino, he was given the name "Crossed Destinies " a sculpture of light on the eve of 2011, twenty years after the first landings of the Albanians on our coast, want to remember those events, but also bring to mind many of those years, before the policy and identified a response, in that sea died. Not a celebration, but an invitation to reflect that you want to continue through art and culture in a symbolic place in the Mediterranean: Otranto and its castle that has seen many times in history to cross swords with the destinies of men. In the frame of a giant diamond grid materializes, intercepting the paths and the paths of visitors who are attracted by the lines, taking volume and body, become elements to be covered: the design by the architect Raffaele Zizzari, text by Luigi De Luca, the production of De Cagna luminaries.
