This challenging project required a versatile lighting scheme encompassing conference rooms, offices, corridors and even a banquet hall. Soft light is reflected from polished architectural elements to illuminate the passageways. Lichtvision designed a temperature regulated dimmer specially for the light-based artwork of Professor Gerhard Merz displayed in the foyer.
A carousel switching system activates a different group of lights daily, substantially prolonging the life of the installation.
