A work of micro-architecture that projects soft, warm light from above onto a lower surface, giving rise to unusual compositions of brightness and shadow. The light slides along the lateral walls with a wall-washer effect, created by the LED sources with dimmers, by means of a touch function. More

Plastic Stratosfera

In 2018, the headquarters of Plastic Stratosfera – a company that specialises in speciality media for the graphics and paper industries – were renovated under the direction of architect Patrik Spreafico. The renovations included work on the external facade and the square in front of it. The facade was clad in dark grey, rippling metal panels that contrast with the orange shade used for its central band. In between the panels, Updown 3.6 single-beam outdoor wall-mounted fixtures were installed. The architect chose 15° narrow optics for these 3000K white-light fixtures and an anodized aluminium finish, so that they blend in with the cladding. The regularly spaced vertical light beams produced by the... More

Head office KeenSystems

KeenSystems headquarters is situated along the ring road around the village of Gemert. The decision to not establish their new office building for their rapidly expanding hi-tech company in the city of Eindhoven comes from the desire to operate from a very much green and inspiring environment.

The hardware is located in Amsterdam on top of world’s most relevant internet hubs.The noise barrier that follows the ring road and protects the residential area behind it from the traffic noise is continued and completed. In this way we aspire to strengthen the pr... More

Office Building

The ground floor of the building is mainly devoted to commercial spaces, a dental practice is also located there. The three floors and the attic are dedicated to office space. The roof of the third floor is partly laid out as a terrace accessible via the attic offices. The non-accessible parts of the roof are vegetated by intensive and rustic planting, which constitutes a qualitative environmental contribution. Apart from the green roof, the project is careful to devote a considerable amount of space to vegetation, in particular through the creation of numerous green spaces and bushes on the ground floor. The construction will be carried out in simple and natural materials in adequacy with their environment, as visible on the facade: sta... More

Extra large

Luciano Bertoncini has designed a collection of large rectangular mirrors to hang on or lean against a wall, thus extending home or community spaces and making them brighter. Available in two heights and four widths, Extra Large mirrors feature a simple geometric thick frame in drawn anodized aluminium or white painted frame. The mirror surface is therefore slightly recessed so as to create an interesting perspective effect. These functional accessories that add a special touch to any context, can be hung vertically or horizontally. More
