Turning Torso

Uniform LED strip lighting emphasises the curve of the corridors in the 54-storey “Turning Torso” tower. This futuristic apartment block, the tallest in Europe, corkscrews 190 metres into the sky like a twisting human torso at the “West Port” of Malmö. LED systems comprising DRAGONtape modules and OPTOTRONIC control gear are now proving their worth here in “real” lighting solutions.

Everyone taking the lift up their apartment in the “Turning Torso” is greeted on each floor by LED light from OSRAM. This futuristic apartment block corkscrews 190 metres into the sky like a twisting human torso at the “West Port” of Malmö. The 54-story tower was officially opened at the end of August 2005, the brainchild of the world famous Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
