Entry DescriptionThis is a landscape lighting project for a communication plaza project in the factory "Nabeya Bi-tech Kaisha" in Seki, Gifu, Japan. About 400 people work in this factory for design, manufacturing and sale of machine elements and components for motion control technology. This plaza is constructed as connection points from work place to parking lots for workers with the staircases. The building next to the plaza has rest space and fitness club, so that the plaza can play a role of communication place for workers.
This plaza is located at the center of the factory, however in evening, there is dark because of lack of lighting and surrounding forest. Mainly lighting are equipped only for roads with only cold colored light.
We try to set home space in the factory to communicate between workers with warm lighting. Warm orange colored lighting with the three dimension curving bench invites you the space as special lighting color in the factory. Layer lighting with table lighting and a lighting with a pole generates depth of the space and impressive space with night activities.
