The light for tomorrow

mawa is occupied with the future of lighting – the Futurium in Berlin is occupied with the future of our lives.
Together, they form a successful symbioses in a rather peculiar exhibition hall. More than 500 spotlights from mawa illuminate the spaces, objects, and installations in the house of the future which opened in September, 2019.

Situated on the banks of the Spree River, between the main train station and the Reichstag building, the Futurium houses exhibits, a laboratory, and an event forum. The main focus lies with the exchange of scientific, technological, and societal developments. Here, one can find answers to the questions regarding our future – for free, in fact, during the test phase lasting until the end of 2022.

seventies plus specifically tailored for museums. The powerful and efficient lighting tool easily serves the tall and dimlit room design of the Futurium.  Modular lighting construction and extensive accessories enable easy revision and extension of light-modelling components. When adapted for track systems, the spotlights are repositionable.
