Toshiba LEDs to light up the Louvre Museum

30 June 2010 13.00 BST

(France) - Toshiba has entered into a partnership agreement with the Louvre Museum, Paris, to support lighting renovations in some of the museum’s most visited public spaces by providing state-of-the-art LED lighting and renovation costs.

One of the world’s most popular museums, the Louvre is aware of the need to replace energy-consuming xenon lighting with an environmentally-friendly alternative. Toshiba will deliver this with its energy-saving low-CO2 LED lighting, and use its products to illuminate some of the Louvre’s most familiar spaces.
Among the areas covered under the partnership agreement, Toshiba will provide the LED lighting for IM Pei’s iconic glass entrance Pyramids and the Napoléon Court (both due for completion in 2011), and the Cour carrée, which is expected to be renovated in 2012.
Toshiba is taking its new lighting system business to a global level, with initial promotions in such regions as France, Germany, and the UK. Toshiba LED lamps have been available at retailers in France since this January. By further promoting its business, Toshiba is aiming for 350 billion sales in FY2015.
