St. Josef Spitalskirche Speising Vienna
Curved pendant profiles in subtle gold
mawa illuminates the Roman Catholic Church of the Orthopedic Hospital in Speising with three custom constructed pendant profiles from the wittenberg 4.0 series.
Since 1956, Austria’s leading specialty clinic has been located in the 13th district of Vienna on the site of a former orphanage with its associated church building.
During renovation of the church, the lighting system was updated. The lighting concept from Friedemann Vest, produced for this purpose, particularly focused on the curved structure of the altar steps and row seating. For this reason, all three lighting profiles possess different lengths and radii.
The gold-like finish of the housing reflects the ornamentation of the otherwise unpretentious church interior and wonderfully correlates with the ceiling fresco above the altar.
