Timeless stainless steel luminaires and refurbished existing luminaires in a uniform design language

The ceiling luminaries in the main auditorium of the Karlshorst Polytechnic were completely taken apart and entirely overhauled by mawa design. In addition to the refurbishment of wood and brass parts, technical components were naturally upgraded with the newest energy saving technology.

In addition to the renovation of the existing wall lamps (newly brass-plated as well as powder-coated) Mawa also designed 2 new pendant lamps, and 1 new wall lamp. These timeless, stainless steel lamps took their formal language from the existing lights, and reinterpreted them in modern terms.
