Europe’s largest butterfly sanctuary has installed a computer-controlled LED lighting system that allows it to “glow in millions of different colours”.

The project was commissioned by Uğur İbrahim Altay, Mayor of Selçuklu Municipality.

“The Tropical Butterfly Garden is one of the most important iconic symbols of Konya. The LED lighting system and fixtures have added value to the silhouette and visuality of our city,” said Mr İbrahim Altay.

Over 6,000 different butterfly species and 20,000 tropical plants are housed in the museum which also has the largest indoor butterfly flight area beneath its wing-shaped dome.

The management of the museum chose Philips’s dynamic lighting so they could “mimic the myriad colours and changing life cycle of the butterflies” that are on display.

Thanks to the Philips LED system, the park will now drastically reduce its environmental impact and energy bill.
