Lichtcampus Hamburg

From 15 to 19 February 2015, the campus of Hamburg's University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) is being taken over by lights. The Faculty of Design, Media & Information has created a new forum entitled 'Lichtcampus' for interdisciplinary exchange on the phenomenon of light. The event coincides with the International Year of Light, which UNESCO is observing in 2015. Hess is taking part in the project by giving a talk, hosting a booth and presenting its innovative CITY ELEMENTS illuminating column.

Varied programme on the relevance of light in teaching and research

Talks, presentations and workshops

More than 20 universities from across Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland are involved in the event, as well as over ten companies from the lighting sector. Experts and students from a range of disciplines – including media, art, design, engineering and architecture – will provide insights into their eclectic work with light in a varied programme of talks, presentations and workshops.
There will also be exemplary light-based university projects, innovations and products on show from research institutes and companies. During the four-day event, various universities will set up light installations around HAW's art and media facilities ready to reveal them to the public on 19 February 2015.

Light and function aligned

CITY ELEMENTS by Hess – Multi-functionality at its best 

As specialists in designing exterior lighting and street and site furnishings, Hess will be presenting multi-functional CITY ELEMENTS illuminating columns as part of the 'Lichtcampus' experience. These products have potential extending far beyond their illuminating function. Together, the most innovative LED technology and individual elements that can be combined as desired open up many additional functions for urban requirements. These include providing power and water, creating festive illuminations, installing a camera in areas where security is a priority, emergency call functionality, attractive light projections or e-mobility.
Hess will be giving a talk about the wide range of uses and possible ways to combine CITY ELEMENTS in Room 1 of the university on Tuesday, 17 February 2015 from 3.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. All are welcome.
