Waldkliniken Eisenberg

Perfect light for increased well-being

On the outskirts of Eisenberg, surrounded by trees in the hilly landscape of Thüringen, lies the largest Orthopedic University Hospital in Europe. The award-winning hospital enjoys an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally.

Designed by the pen of the reknowned Milanese architect Matteo Thun, the innovative building reflects the high standard required of the aesthetic and quality of stay. His credo: Bring nature inside. Healthy architecture and healthy interior design promote physical and mental well-being. Following this principle, the architecture and design studio created the new hospital building with hotel-quality comfort.

mawa illuminates nearly all areas of this sensational, circular construction. The building, flooded with light, is symbiotically supplemented with individual lighting concepts. Form, function and design are consistently the main focus, and mawa continually accompanies the process of implementation with advice and support.

High-quality surfaces contribute to the aesthetics of the room. The luminaires from mawa fit seamlessly into this concept with their high quality standards and precise workmanship. Slim d28 rod pendant luminaires in chrome, wall luminaires from the wittenberg 4.0 series with brass rotary dimmers and spherical luminaires with metallised glasses emphasise the scene. The light colours were determined according to use.

The two project-specific and customized fabrications of the berliner ring 1 pendant lights ensure the best possible illumination. Constructed of two delicate profiles separated by a shadow gap, with homogenous light-emission in both upward and downward directions, these lights are duly impressive. The five meter long lights were each manufactured as a single piece, which gives them an especially harmonious surface-finish, with no visible segmentation.
The lighting intensity is easily regulated via DALI, and can be adjusted for any situation.
