The lighting concept distinguishes between two different uses:
1. functional, 2. representative.

The illumination is planned accordingly for the various spaces. In the office areas and meeting rooms for instance, the lighting is designed in a very functional and structured way.

For representative areas such as the foyer and circulation area, lighting becomes architecture, a decorative object or signage. It can even transform into a multimedia element which communicates beyond a normal lighting object or installation. The decorative light also helps with orientation. Lighting fixtures in the circulation area are not meant to be seen and are therefore hidden within the ceiling grid. Only the illuminated floor below indicates where it’s source could be.
