For the successful completion of the project, Philips collaborated with renowned lighting designer Al Borden of The Lighting Practice, who also worked on the Empire State Building’s tower lighting replacement, Jones Lang LaSalle, the building’s management company, and value-added partner Electric Light Agencies.

“As one of the busiest destinations in New York City, we knew we had an opportunity to create a unique public experience. Philips’ dynamic lighting system helps bring whatever game, concert or special event is happening inside the building to the public outside, engaging everyone who walks by the Arena in the excitement of The Garden,” said Joel Fisher, Executive Vice President of Sports Properties, MSG Sports, in a news release.

“We have the industry expertise, partners, and best practices for delivering innovative, turnkey solutions, such as the one at Madison Square Garden, quickly and effectively because we understand that today’s lighting systems go far beyond the light fixture to integrate with other business-critical systems on the network. The new LED lighting system gives The Garden a unique new way to engage fans and heighten team pride and support by allowing the community to stay connected with the games and events, even from outside its walls,” said Amy Huntington, CEO Philips Professional Lighting Solutions.
