Officials and researchers of the Songyong Research Institute of Light Decoration and Illumination strive to add beauty to the country whose appearance is being transformed day after day.
Established in June 2007, the institute took its first step by illuminating the Grand People’s Study House and the Statue of Chollima; it has now developed into a reliable base with R&D and technical service capability in its specialist area.
Over the past years, it completed designs and installations of light decoration and illumination devices for the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum, Sci-Tech Complex, Mirae Scientists Street and many other grand monumental edifices across the country in conformity to the national tastes and modern aesthetic feelings. Recently, with high creative ambition and courage, they developed a rhythmic LED point lamp and rhythmic control device for large-screen poster and manufactured LED lamp devices with holophotal effect, directional illuminators and various kinds of interior illuminators. These sci-tech achievements have contributed to illuminating the streets and buildings in the capital city.
Typical examples are the colourful night view of the magnificent Ryomyong Street and the outer walls of the Ryugyong Hotel, the largest architectural structure in the DPRK, which have turned into large screens. They are making strenuous efforts to present refined and weighty illuminations that embody the Juche-oriented ideas of the Workers’ Party of Korea on architectural and aesthetic beauty.
