Stockholm Lighting is proud sponsor of lighting and control systems. Read the exciting story about Dramaten's architecture and most important of all - go there an evening this week and experience it live
About Dramaten's architecture - according to Dag Kronlund, historian at Dramaten
The architect Fredrik Liljeqvist wanted to create an inviting, imaginative and festive building in Ekebergsmarmor. The best artists of the time were commissioned to work with the interior and the exterior. The facade is a real art treasure with its incredible craftsmanship and creative details. Carl Milles performed the large center group of the façade in front of the tower, which represents "Drama", surrounded from the left by "Architecture", with a model of the theater building in hand, "Poetry"," Sculpture" and" Painting". All this as a mark that the building was a temple of art in several respects. Milles also made the six masks on the facade and the bas-reliefs of the columns with the tumbling children. Christian Eriksson created the reliefs on the theater's facade. The left represents a back-anal Dionysus train, the right a scene from the well - known Renaissance masked comedy, the Commedia Dell`art. The sculptor John Börjeson made the two sculptures gilded bronze depicting Poetry and Drama. The two sculptures in the facade corner niche were shaped by Teodor Lundberg. Antique and Modern respectively. August Strindberg's bust of Knut Jern found its place in the 2012 Strindberg year. The heated bronze sculpture by Margareta Krook by Marie Louise Ekman was erected in 2002. Thanks to. Stockholm's lighting company Dramaten and the Nobel Foundation Photo: Patrick Miller
Where the light guide you
Designer Alexander Lervik and artist Eva Dahlgren invites you to a universe with new design and music. Exhibition at "designgalleriet" in Stockholm opens 7th february and is open until 1st march. Stockholm Lighting sponsors lighting and controls.
The designers of the festival are looking for site-specific outdoor installations, that deal with Tartu city, its forgotten spaces, its history, its citizens. We are looking forward to see new solutions for old places – direct light to non-places. Stockholm Lighting sponsors the lights for the ruins of the old cathedral.

Sweet Sixteen 2015
Thank You for a fantastic night!
Visit by Dr. Nakamura
Friday, December 5th is a day we will never forget in Stockholm Lighting Company. Dr. Shuji Nakamura, the 2014 Nobel Laureate in Physics, visited us in the office and talked about his research on Gan-on Gan diodes and the birth of the blue diode. We thank Dr. Nakamura for giving us this opportunity and, above all, for all the work he put in to enable that diodes can now be used as energy-efficient light sources. We promise to continue to spread the knowledge of LED lights in our part of the world.
When Stockhoms inner city only major industry, Octapharma, grew out of its premises at West Kungsholmen it acquired the so-called "Great brewery "built from 1890 to 1891. The property, which has cultural classification, has now been converted to house the company's headquarters, meeting and conference services, changing rooms, warehouses and dining rooms. Joliark architects have carefully together with an antiquarian expert and in consultation with the Planning Department and City Museum renovated the house, which at the acquisition was in extremely poor condition.

Nobel prize to the founder of Soraa
Soraa was founded in 2008 by three professors in electronics . One of them, Dr. Shuji Nakamura, has now been rewarded with the Nobel Prize in Physics for his research. Together with his colleagues, Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Aman he created the blue diode that was the piece of the puzzle that was missing for, by mixing light from the already existing red and green LEDs with blue light, create white LED light. The blue LED is behind the majority of today's white LED light generated by blue or violet LEDs and phosphor technology. Through his work in Soraa Dr. Nakamura continued to take the blue diodes from an invention into an extremely useful and high quality product. if you want to know more contact Rikard@stockholmlighting.se
Swedish Lighting award 2014
This years "lighting day" became a great industry party with creative meetings with colleagues, customers and parteners. The highlight was like always the distribution of this year's Light Price. We had obviously hoped that Sölvesborg bridge would win as we delivered fixtures, controllers and a lot of wonderful programming hours. But this year it was not our year and instead we saw Stockholm Library as a very worthy winner. Congratulations Ljusarkitektur
