Entry DescriptionWe created laconically and, simultaneously, alive compared to sharp modern architecture for the modern business hall in the central business part of the city. We put a lot of emphasis on comfortable, high-tech light. We have developed biodynamic light. For him, we grouped directional, diffused, hidden light, and sconces. All groups have a variable color temperature. Together with the chandelier, create biodynamic lighting scenarios that flow to each other every hour, adjusting to the color temperature and light level from the outside. The closer to the evening, the more contrasting the light, the atmosphere in the lobby changes from working and active to calmer. The same thing happens with the light on the chandelier. We developed not only the lighting design but also the chandelier itself with a unique shape. It was chosen to be perceived as a sculpture in the middle. And to improve the perception and visually expand the space, we made a mirrored ceiling over the chandelier. The perception of the shape of the chandelier varies depending on the angle of view. It is also very well received from the street through the large glass windows on the first floor.
