|The Colour Consistency Across All Lighting at The
Chez-Moi Ton Schulten Gallery
Throughout the years, Chez-Moi Ton Schulten Gallery in Ootmarsum, Netherlands has become a meeting point for contemporary art lovers for over 15 years, where Tom Schulten’s work serves as the benchmark and magnet that draws people in. His latest paintings and silkscreens are on display within a backdrop of elegance. Chez-Moi is much more than just a gallery. In the past few decades, it has grown into a temple of beauty and use, where visitors find tranquility and allow the colours and shapes to fill their senses.
Because the colours and shapes are so important to the overall experience within the gallery, the management team at the Chez-Moi Ton Schulten Gallery approved a project to replace 600 spot lights with new LED lighting to enhance the paintings on display.
It was very important that the new LED lighting meet the following requirements:
- No zoom lens or various types of reflectors
- Same lumen output as current installed spot lights
- Good CRI for consistency across the current colour arrangement
- Compatible with the current 3-phase track system by Hoffmeister
- Lowest possible damage potential, in connection with any high IR/UV light so that no colour change occurs in the artwork after years
- LED lighting manufacturer with a long history of product longevity and consistency
The highlighted artworks are extremely valuable at the Chez-Moi Ton Schulten Gallery. The lighting is designed to highlight the richly colourful artwork with a variety of spot lights shining on each painting from various angles. Due to this complex arrangement, there must be very little colour difference, if any, between the various spot lights in the gallery. The current 600 spot lights are Halogen 50-watt 10° and dimmable with a potentiometer.
