Tripping the light fantastic
Even Zeus himself could not have hurled his lightning bolts to such spectacular effect as this theatrical light sculpture achieves. By simultaneously dramatizing and structuring the space, the sculpted lighting complements the concentrated clarity of the black-topped reception counter. Light guides the way – not only in legends, but here quite specifically at all points where a visitor enters into a new sphere, such as the elevator. Transformation through reflection is a thematic highlight: Where in film, a mirror is used to symbolise the dawning awareness of a new or hidden self, here mirrors expands the foyer to infinity. Alternating lamellae tell a story from a multitude of perspectives, thus opening up a whole universe of possibilities.
Special effects for good business
The interplay of wood and mirror on the rear wall acts as a counterpart to the interplay of moods: Different lighting conditions and figures in motion are repeatedly reflected back into the space, taking the visitor on a quasi-cinematic journey. At the same time, this effect gives the hall an unprecedented depth – with very little intervention in the existing architectural structure. In this way, a fitting stage has been built for future-proof business: agile companies from dedicated innovation sectors of the fintech community have now joined existing prestigious names such as Zurich Versicherungen and Lavazza.
