Statue of Zlatan, Malmö

Sweco had the prestigious project of designing lighting for the statue of the football icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The statue can be seen at Stadiontorget in Malmö.


Project: designing lighting for the statue of Zlatan.

Competence: building service systems consultants, lighting design, energy calculations

Location: Malmö


The statue, which is just over 3 meters high and weighs several tons, has had its lighting designed by Sweco. The project was assigned to Sweco by Stadsfastigheter in Malmö and the statue was inaugurated on the 8th of October 2019 in Malmö where Zlatan grew up.

The goal of the project was to create the feeling of the sun illuminating the statue as per the artists request. The building service systems consultants from Sweco have worked with lighting calculations, visualisation and planning, where as always, we had a close dialogue with our client.
