New funky lighting at the new eircom HQ

via eircom is a time lapse vid of the LED lighting in their new HQ which opens in September. Wouldn’t it be nice to do a photowalk of that at night? Better still imagine if they ran a competition inviting people to programme the sequencing of the lights? Keep watching as the lighting changes become more swish:

    Really cool, great to see they finally understand the priorities of running a Telco.
    I’m sure that the B&B shareholders have regained their trust in the company now..

    So after a decade of web hosting and they still dont offer PHP…

    Wonder what the carbon fuckprint is on this charm?

    “Wouldn’t it be nice to do a photowalk of that at night?”… I was thinking that the other night, but didn’t get around to it. Although they were on at least two nights this week they’re not on tonight.

    Are they using LEDs?… from across the river here it looks like fiber optic lighting.

    disclaimer: I don’t know too much about lighting.

    eircom get keys at same time as writing rent/lease cheque for new HQ.

    Sick, sad and true.

    How not to motivate your employees! But hey, who cares!


    RIP B&B – It’s a matter of time.

    @ Evert, all I can say is I hope for your sake that your post above is merely sarcasm! If it’s not is nothing more than EVIAN.

    Every crap band in Dublin is gonna want to shoot their homemade music videos in front of that building now! Lucky us.

    @ Liam, LED lighting is quite low voltage and low wattage output so your environmental concerns should be eased!

  8. Cian says:

    It may have a quite low voltage and low wattage output, but it could be argued that lighting the outside of a large building as is being done is a pointless waste.

  9. NaRocRoc says:

    @ Cian, “a pointless waste” you say? I fundamentally disagree. I think well designed lighting on facades and from within buildings can add dramatically to a fairly dull cityscape. It can be artistic and functional. A case in point is Grand Canal Dock. It looks fantastic at night and gives that area of Dublin some much needed identity. The city’s bridges also look much better since they were rigged with lights underneath. I could go on.

  10. Cian says:

    “Pointless waste” might have been a bit strong, but, fundamentally, if you’re going to start to look at something from an environmental view point it is a waste.

  11. Evert Bopp says:

    @Tom Young What do you think, honestly?

  12. Tom Young says:

    @ Evert, yes! 🙂 Irish Times on Friday consolidates the sarcasm.
