With its nod to elegant French art deco lighting design, Voliere’s intricately layered wood veneer elements are arranged in the manner of feathery plumes. “One can learn so much from the past, in particular the appreciation for materiality which is also apparent in my LZF designs.“ Bodo Sperlein “Voliere’’ comes from the French name volière for outdoor bird houses.

Saga City Space

A revealing, soft, muted light fills the facade from the inside. And its openwork part comes to the fore thanks to external sliding lighting. Expolight Previously, we launched a gentle display of the entire field, and now we have included an utterly internal backlight, which with special lamps, gives a balanced light in front of the hidden windows. Expolight For this, we developed special compact lamps and placed them in narrow gaps between the openwork perforated brick facade and the warm facade inside the window area. We made the windows appear, but they simulated bright light from inside the rooms and spread a halo around. And now, with that layer on, dimmed and balanced the outer fill layer, so they're in a relatively correc... More
