    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    HIGH-TECH BRINGS BUILDING FACADES INTO THE 21ST CENTURY Finnish Vitrulux Oy. unveils new technology set to to make self-illuminated facades common place

    A new blend of art and technology used to light glass-facade buildings is transforming city's night looks. Over the last year two new buildings in St-Petersburg, Russia have come to life -- housing offices by day, and dazzling imagination by night. The buildings' facades are a mix of glass windows and light-emitting panels which at night cover faces of the buildings with vivid images and rich textures.

    Thanks to recent advances in technology and design, self-illuminating facade systems have finally become practical both in terms of longevity and environmental friendliness. This new patented technology delivers a lighting solution compatible with modern construction technologies and minimal construction overhead. Vitrulux Oy., the Finnish company responsible for the two installations in St-Petersburg, has recently launched a website (www.vitrulux.com) which showcases these projects and provides technical background information.

    Vitrulux Oy specializes in design and installation of complex and high-tech fa├žade lighting systems for buildings and other urban structures. Our company builds on serious innovative decisions.
