Betty’s BonBon Manufaktur Baiersbronn
LED spotlights and classic luminaires for a Wes Anderson-style shop
Bettina Buchthal was already successfully employed in research before fulfilling another of her career dreams when she established „Bettys BonBon Manufaktur“. From an initial enthusiasm for the ingredients and preparation of hard candies, a vocation arose. Since then, Betty’s product palette includes around 35 hard candy varieties, made traditionally, by hand.
Buchthal commissioned the architect, Birgit Stiletto, with the design of the shop. She composed a demonstration workshop of volumes, proportions, materials and light, which recall the colorful film stills of Wes Anderson. Green tones, wood, plants and coordinated Italien cement tiles, create a pastel backdrop in front of which Betty creates cherry, raspberry and orange flavored candies. Willy Wonka would be thrilled!
The complete lighting concept was implemented by mawa, and coordinated with the color concept of the shop: where built-in and surface-mounted lights provide ambient lighting, the cylindrical spot heads of the wittenberg 4.0 series, in matt white, are unobtrusive and discreet. They rotate and tilt, so that individual zones within the store can be accentuated with them as well.
The decorative wall light etna, and pendant light d28, have surface-finishes in shiny copper. They create a contrast to the green tones of the shop, and harmonize with the built-in woodwork. Above the cash register counter, the highlight is the pendant light bergamo by the glass designer Aloys Ferdinand Gangkofner. As a Re-Edition, this classic light was reissued by mawa in metalized clear glass, with a gradation of rose gold.
