8,800,000€ project, 35,000€ luminaires

For this 7m tall space, custom made luminaires, 3.5m in height, were devised using Barrisol stretched ceiling material. By using this system it was possible to obtain pendants which, unlike a conventional pendant of similar size, only require supporting rings at their upper and lower extremities. The lower face of the luminaire utilizes the same stretched Barrisol to provide a degree of comfortable direct lighting. This surface features an opaque disc behind which are hidden the simple linear fluorescent light sources. Behind this disc one has access to the telescopic system that can be lowered to floor level permitting straightforward access to the lamps for maintenance, even
though the luminaires hang from a great height.
