Pinacoteca di Brera lighting project represents a challenging project combining a set of various parameters, in order to provide a contemporary museum lighting system for this famous Milanese museum.
The Brera lighting project started in 2006 and Metis Lighting was involved for developing a new flexible lighting system. Working on the Pinacoteca di Brera between all this legendary artwork had been a challenge and a pleasure and gave important knowledge for the various museum lighting projects that followed.
Before developing a lighting concept, there was a meticulous analysis of every hall, documenting the existing lighting conditions.
Metis’ study included the illuminance levels provided by natural light due to the presence of several skylight and the specifications of the existing lamps, colour temperature, colour rendering and finally, the architectural elements that would permit an intervention for integrating new light fittings.
