About the project
LED was used throughout this project in order to satisfy the request for “green design” by the client.

Keflavík International Airport is the largest airport in Iceland and the country’s main hub for international transportation. Isavia, the public body that managed the operation and development of the airport, asked Mannvit, Iceland’s largest engineering and project management firm, to find a green and practical solution to illuminate the retail section, immigration area, service desk, bar, restrooms and adjoining external areas. These sections cover a total area of 1800 square meters in the airport’s South Terminal.

Mannvit chose iGuzzini lighting products to achieve the requested solution. Besides the need for green credentials through energy saving, LED was chosen because it offered optimal control and smooth dimming.

The retail area, specifically the Duty Free store, was one of the focal points which required a combination of general lighting; which could be dimmed easily, and spot lights; to highlight the goods on offer. iGuzzini’s recessed iN60 LED, which offer a life span of 50,000 hours, good colour rendering and smooth dimming, were used to provide the general lighting alongside a selection of iGuzzini’s Gem pendants. Carefully placed Hub systems by iGuzzini housed spot lights that provided the desired effect on the product displays.

For the restrooms and immigration desks, continuous rows of recessed iN60 LED were used. The final view shows clear luminous lines without any dark spots. The bar and service desks utilize pendant versions of iN60 LED. For the South Terminal entrance, iGuzzini Plateas are used for the urban lighting, guiding both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

All products used in this project are controlled by DALI-KNX. A combination of this and LED as a light source will pass on energy savings of 30% to the client.
