City hall, Cham

On June 1st, 2018, the new City Hall in Cham was ceremonially inaugurated. The multi-functional public hall replaced the original building demolished in 2015. The building features a spacious foyer, two combinable halls, three conference rooms and a restaurant. Equipped with the most modern lighting, audio and media technology, the new City Hall is the ideal venue for all types of events.

Four stately 3 meter diameter crown chandeliers, manufactured by mawa, greet guests in the foyer and are impressive well beyond their size alone.Designed by Architect Ansgar Lamott, these complex custom-made luminaires are the result of an intensive planning, coordination, and production process.

For mawa, projects such as these are a challenge and a driving force at the same time. In these situations, our talented individuals in construction and production often find groundbreaking, innovative solutions to detail questions, which not only challenge the technical capabilities of our continually growing machine fleet, but also increases know-how which directly benefits future projects.

Mawa mounted the heavyweights, each weighing over 100kg apiece, in two stages. First, the substructure for the light shaft cladding was installed. After the foundation for the mounting was constructed, the actual installation of the interior cladding and the crown lights was carried out shortly before the opening - within only 2 1/2 days.

Positioned directly beneath the circular skylights, the chandeliers are an important conceptual element of the architecture. With a conically tapered, pendant system suspending each crown chandelier and a completely golden appearance, the chandeliers formally evoke incidental rays of sunlight within the purist interiors of exposed concrete and silver fir. As evening falls, each of the 24 lamps of our newest generation wittenberg 4.0, in addition to the indirect lighting components, ensures a glamorous ambience in the new cultural center of the city.
