Noble Ploenchit is the high-end condominium project by Noble Development Public Company Limited. The condominium presents the design concept of vertical garden city from Le Corbusier, one of Modern Architecture pioneers. It is the ideal living in future that man, technology and nature live well together.

The image of Noble Ploenchit from exterior view is preceded by Noble building – the tower on the frontage next to Ploenchit road. Architect, IAW Company Limited, created the impressive waver shape building which inside includes retails, café and Noble space for exclusive members in order to support condominium community and nearby.

Façade lighting of Noble building is designed by APLD, lighting design company from Thailand. Lighting designers use dynamic facade lighting as a medium of interaction among man, technology and nature. The imitation of delicate form, movement and colors from nature are used in lighting scene design. Water flowing, leaves blowing, or anything related to time, weather or season are created as the scenes that people feel into.

Linear addressable RGB LED fixtures by L&E are used for façade lighting. LEDs are installed continuously between every four vertical louvres. In daytime, they are humble for architecture but then turn into stunning dynamic illuminated graphics in night-time. With very tiny address, only10 cm, they can create the lighting scenes with exquisite lighting effects such as sparkling light. In the process of scene creating, each LED is differentiated as one of thousand addresses in a whole pattern. 

Then scenes are simulated by intuitive LED control software and hardware. The challenged part of façade lighting is about the installation of LEDs on the complex curve of façade design which is hard to be precisely constructed. Thus alignment and addressing of LED fixtures were adjusted to suit the on-site changes. In the end, various beautiful lighting scenes are created according to the design concept from lighting designers.

L&E is a lighting equipment manufacturer and lighting solution provider based in Bangkok, Thailand. They have been specialists in lighting for more than 20 years and engaged in many prominent projects in Thailand and other Asian countries.
