Museum of Innocence Istanbul

A harmonious lighting concept for all rooms and corners

Opened in 2012, the „Museum of Innocence“ from Turkish Nobel Prize Winner Orhan Pamuk is literature in real life. Thirteen years ago in Istanbul, he bought a tall and narrow house in the historic district in order to open a museum there, which would be the real life twin of his novel.

The museum was designed by two young artists from Germany: Johanna Sunder-Plassmann (Cologne) and Carlotta Werner (Weimar). Studio Diennebier + Blieske took over lighting design and lit this wonderful exhibit with a total of 127 wittenberg spotlights »made in Brandenburg«.
