This law firm in Amsterdam resides in a beautiful listed building.
With the ornaments on the ceiling, it was a challenge to get the lighting right. Also, the interior is luxurious and warm, so standard profiles and tracks would look a little out of place. For this project, we custom designed matt gold profiles with both general light and spots.
As the layout of the rooms is not fixed, and desks could be placed differently in the future, we needed ambient lighting for the workplaces. The profiles contain led modules, both uplight and downlight, with a diffuser to prevent glare and discomfort. By using the right diffuser, we could keep the profiles slim and still get a high output, without causing glare or trouble. To bring the rooms to life we added spots on the profiles as well, to accent, for example, a fireplace or a bookcase. All this proved possible within the constraints of the listed building, by using the single fixing point for power in the existing ceiling.
