Helsinki Music Centre

A symphony of light

1200 Pleiad downlights for general lighting and special made light lines gives a symphony of light in the new Helsinki Music Centre.


In August 2011 opened the new Helsinki Music Centre of 254 000 square meters. This is a modern entertainment centre with an architecture inspired by the logging patterns of the Finnish rivers.

The concert hall is at the heart of the building and seats 1704 visitors. The building also contains six additional smaller concert halls. In the foyer and the lobby are also several cafés, bars and exhibition areas.

This exceptional centre is a home to the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Sibelius Academy that is the only music university in Finland.


1200 pieces of our successful downlight series Pleiad fills the main concert hall and other six smaller concert halls with general light. The luminaires were painted black and some are installed with black rings so that they integrate well into the interior.

Formations that enriches architecture
The centre also has an exciting element of light. That is custom-made light lines of Basic T5 with opal diffusers. The lines decorate the open spaces and corridors and shows how well light formations can enrich architecture. 200 decorative and compact Closs with DALI are also installed in the centre.
