Museum Kunst der Westküste Alkersum/Föhr

Painting lighting with 400 individually developed surface-mounted spotlights

The collection of the Museum Kunst der Westküste (Art of the West Coast Museum) was endowed by Prof. h.c. Frederik Paulsen, who wanted to make his extensive collection of mainly maritime paintings accessible to the public.

For the entire complex, mawa design produced a newly developed variation of the wittenberg surface-mounted spotlight.

400 spots of the newly developed variation of the  wittenberg surface-mounted spotlight were used in the galleries to provide the right light for approximately 480 paintings.

The analysis of local building history is evident throughout, and tangible in the interaction between the Museums’ garden and structure.
