The new Aarau railway station now has a new attraction thanks to the Einstein Passage. Aarau honours the world-famous physicist and Nobel prize winner, who lived in Aarau for a year and graduated in 1896 with the Matura, the Austrian school leaving certificate at the old cantonal school, with a memorial plaque and an artistic light installation between the station hall and Bahnhofstraße.
Our LED-Tiles C31 in conjunction with the System Power Supply 4E form the technical basis of this installation. For a project of this size, such an installation can only be realised when technology and creativity are combined.
