Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series LEDs Chosen to Illuminate Paris’ Grevin Museum

May 14, 2019

The SunLike series of natural spectrum LEDs from Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. has been adopted by Ramo, a LED lighting manufacturer in France, for downlight fixtures used to illuminate wax figures in the Grevin Museum of Paris.

Since 1882, the Grevin Museum Paris, located on the Boulevard Montmartre, has been a leading tourist attraction, with exhibits of more than 200 wax figures of movie stars, celebrities, historic figures and politicians, including Kylian Mbappe, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, and Albert Einstein. 

Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are the world’s first LEDs to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight. These LEDs were co-developed through the combination of Seoul Semiconductor’s optical semiconductor technology and Toshiba Materials’ Tri-R technology, which defines its original concept as “the light closest to the sun for human well-being.” Tri-R technology enables the spectrum of natural sunlight to be reproduced by a white LED light source. Seoul Semiconductor products are distributed in Canada by Mouser Electronics Inc.

The SunLike COB LED packages adopted by Ramo for the Grevin Museum Paris’s downlight achieved colour temperatures of neutral white (3000K) and warm white (4000K), optimized to natural light spectra and colour rendering of CRI-97 — close to CRI-100 of sunlight, and higher than the CRI- 80 of conventional LEDs. The downlight fixtures are designed to bring out the most natural colour tones of objects that are particularly colour sensitive, making the wax figure exhibits of the Grevin Museum Paris appear more lifelike to visitors. They also deliver considerable benefits of significant vivid colour, detail contrast, and homogeneous quality of light by reaching lower blue light peak similar to sunlight spectral curve possible to reduce scattered reflection and glare.

“Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are unique products that have redefined high quality lighting with differentiated design in our industry,” says Omar Rezki, chairman of Ramo. “In cooperation with Seoul Semiconductor, we were able to create a fixture design with outstanding performance to deliver an optimal lighting solution for the unique requirements of the Grevin Museum Paris.”

“We are proud that Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series LEDs were adopted by Ramo for these fixtures, which will deliver a high light quality for the Grevin Museum Paris that was not possible to achieve using conventional LED technology,” says Nam Ki-bum, sales executive vice-president at Seoul Semiconductor. “With the SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs, Seoul Semiconductor can offer the best selection of LED lighting for museums, art galleries, hospitals, and commercial spaces, with a high colour rendering and a natural light source similar to the spectrum of natural sunlight.”

RAMO designs and manufactures high quality LED products that are mainly used in museum lighting with complete in-house design, development, and manufacturing capabilities. The company designs LED lighting in cooperation with light designers, lighting engineers, experts and museum curators to provide optimized lighting solutions to meeting their unique needs; www.ramo-industries.com.

Seoul Semiconductor develops and commercializes LEDs for automotive, general illumination, specialty lighting, and backlighting markets. As the second-largest LED manufacturer globally excluding the captive market, Seoul Semiconductor holds more than 14,000 patents, offers a wide range of technologies, and mass produces innovative LED products such as SunLike; www.seoulsemicon.com/en.
