Beyond PurpleHaze T


he 300 meter-long Zeleni Most (Green Bridge) spans the River Sava in the Croatian capital. Most people


in the country simply know the bridge as the 'Hendrix bridge', ever since graffiti with the surname of the legendary rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix first appeared on the bridge in 1995. Philips Lighting worked with the famous


Croatian lighting designer, Dean Skira, on the project. At night the bridge is bathed in an almost ethereal white light showing off its arch, spans and graceful design. However, as a train approaches, it is detected by a sensor and the white light fades to black causing the bridge to seemingly disappear.


Then, as the first coach behind the locomotive crosses the bridge, coloured lights come on in sync with the speed of the train crossing the bridge. Both the bridge and train are bathed in a moving ribbon of colour worthy of a riff from the bridge's namesake. As the train disappears the white light returns. The revitalised railway bridge makes the


surrounding area more attractive for locals and visitors. "The goal was to upgrade the visual identity of the City of Zagreb. It is part of our plan to enhance city life around the Sava river," explained Ivan Babic, Head of the Infrastructural Services Department for the city. "The innovative LED lighting highlights the


grandeur, colour and the beauty of the bridge. It's become a tourist attraction with people often stopping to take pictures in front of it." Lighting designer, Dean Skira, said: "Most bridges are utilitarian in appearance; few of

them possess the architectural or structural ingredients required to be able to use light as a medium to enhance the beauty of the engineering. What we created with Philips Lighting was something very special."


Philips Lighting has given the Hendrix bridge in Zagreb, Croatia, a unique lighting makeover, transforming the railway bridge with a spectacular LED light show that is triggered by trains passing over it.
