Entry Description

The light is of paramount importance in the access, platform areas and in the underground connections. It clarifies the concept of path guidance and safety, emphasises the architecture and provides orientation. The lighting radiate a pleasant and safe atmosphere. The strong, attractive elements at the railway station consist of a light wall and the so-called canopies, which give the railway station its own identity by day and night. The targeted illumination of the tinted glass panes makes the impressive lanterns shine from the inside and brings the new sights into focus.


We have been creating unique realms of light for interior and exterior spaces since 1997. Our distinguished portfolio encompasses more than 800 lighting design projects, many of which have received international awards, and includes a wide range of commissions: from private bathrooms to interactive light art, from street lighting to urban lighting masterplans, railway systems and airports. At the heart of every project lies our passion for designing with artificial and natural light.
