Designed by the architects of OZ architect , the façade features vertical stripes of traditional steel profile Trapeza® 5.183.39B in seven Hairultra® colours going from yellow, orange, pink and different tones of blue and purple. The coloured stripes are complemented with peeking white lines playing with volume and perspective. The full composition resembles the popular Dutch flower fields and were inspired by French conceptualist Daniel Buren, whose vertical stripes became his works’ signature.

LZF as Lighting

Choosing the right lighting is a profession

When the interior plan is ready, all the furniture has its place and the colour and material plan has been determined, the design stands or falls with a well thought-out lighting plan by a lighting designer. There is so much choice of luminaires on the market that it is difficult to determine which lighting is right for your situation. Recessed or surface spotlights, how many and where to place them, what is the budget and what mood do you want to create?

In the kitchen, there needs to be enough light on the worktop, but it is also possible that it can be dimmed when you have finished cooking. In the bathroom, the lighting plan is just as important: is the light warm enough to feel comfortable? When you take a bath, the lighting will be different from when you stand in front of the mirror first thing in the morning.
