St. Nicholas’ Church Berlin
Glass globes as individually manufactured floor, wall and pendant luminaires
St. Nicholas is the oldest church and one of the oldest buildings in the city. The St. Nicholas Church was originally built as a stone basilica in the 13th century. Today, it’s actual look is due to repeated modifications over the years.
For it’s current use as a museum and venue for classical music and organ concerts, Studio Dinnebier, from Berlin, designed a lighting concept which posed a technical challenge in both form and functionality. The partnership with mawa produced 9 different types of floor, wall, and suspended lights, all in a distinctive design language.
The key feature, a rotatable glass globe with an integrated light source, is the recurring theme woven throughout the entire house of worship.
The lighting, accessible for maintenance and upkeep, was designed, constructed, produced, and mounted, by mawa. The special feature: HIT and LV mixed technology operation with dimmable DALI control and integrated emergency lamp units
