Entry DescriptionSupercell's eight-story Headquarters' lighting design's starting point has been the company's ideology. The atmosphere of the spaces is moderate and soothing, creating room for concentration.
The lobby represents unique wooden architecture that is spectacularly highlighted. The general light is bright, but when it gets dark, the light dims as the lobby emerges as part of the street view.
In the common spaces, light is dimmed. In the morning, the light is cooler, and as the evening darkens, the mood changes; the light is warm, and the illuminated pilasters resemble a campfire against the window views of Helsinki evening.
The Atrium staircase is like the heart and soul of Supercell. Abstractly changing tones and slow-motion give room for imagination. Light changes with the seasons and the days, always appearing different.
On the top floor, a key element is uniquely designed Hexagon lighting, representing the basic ideology of the company's operations, the movement of cells. In the street view, Hexagon communicates dynamism.
Light is part of the architecture and the lives of the users of the spaces. The lighting solution provides elements that the end-user can endlessly modify.
