Entry DescriptionThe idea of a light concept was to create a shining tree in weightlessness and to cover the entire floor and walls with complex organic shadow patterns and additional reflections of the tree in partially glass vertical surfaces.
For the wood to be an accent, we needed to avoid illuminating the walls and floor and generally avoid additional bright glare.
For this purpose, we had to specially design and manufacture individual lamps of several types, which are hidden in inconspicuous, non-random places on the walls and ceiling and even hidden in the long roots of trees, lenses, and secondary light-forming accessories to draw contrasting shadows on the walls and the floor with light, complementing the natural lobby atmosphere. In addition, we made the tree reflected in the dark glass, so this stunning sculpture seems to multiply itself into several copies thanks to the play of light, shadows, and reflections.
At the same time, delicate lighting settings were needed so that you do not list over other areas of the lobby interior, appropriately distribute the accents to a tree and create a comfortable light for guests that would not blind.
