Federal Archives, New magazine building, Berlin

Files upon files ... 110 kilometers of files are kept in the new magazine building of the Federal Archives in Berlin. Transparency and openness are central themes of the new building by Stephan Braunfels Architects. In this spirit, 64 cylindrical pendants constructed of metal-mesh are arranged in a circle and hang at a lofty height from the ceiling of the two-story glazed reception area. Appearing light and airy, these visual masterpieces were designed by Prof. Jan Blieske and planned, constructed, and installed by mawa engineering. Following several adjustments to the light aperture and equipped with an invisible connection at the joint of the corset support, our seventies downlights (se-23-5, spot 13°) feel comfortable in their new (woven metal) dresses and hover chandelier-like above the... files.

Scope of Work

  • Planning, technical construction and installation of 64 cylindrical pendant luminaires constructed of rolled wire mesh with support corset and invisible joint connection. Lighting technology: narrow-beam seventies downlights se-23 (spot 13 °)
