Luminale light building 2008
WE FINISHED A SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION AT THE LIGHT+BUILDING IN FRANKFURT AM MAIN, GERMANY
We thank you for the great interest and positive feedback you gave to us, especially in the case of the lighting installation of Atelier Wolfgang Rang /Lighting Roof Frankfurt – Gateway to the Zeil” at the building of Galeria Kaufhof. The project was realized in cooperation of Atelier Rang and Galeria Kaufhof and was one of the most impressive and outstanding lighting installations at the Luminale 2008. Every evening xenon lighting beams, each of powerful 7000 watts, built a bridge between the centres of the city. 12 FALCON© BEAM searchlights of the manufacturer alpha one gmbh threw xenon beams into the night sky, viewable over several kilometres and dissociated this project from the other mostly static facade illuminations by temporarily changing beam movements.
Also the two projects “imPuls” of elken elektronik/Leszek Natonski at the house of the cathedral and “Clouds & Stripes” of JUST.BURGEFF.Architekten/Atelier Deluxe at the FBC (Office Tower Frankfurt), which were supported by A&O Technology with FALCON© xenon fixtures of alpha one, suceeded.
ENCHANTMENT BY LUMINALE-PROJECTS IN FRANKFURT AM MAIN
FRANKFURT AM MAIN, GERMANY
On this year’s Luminale, 22. – 27. April 2006 A&O Lighting Technology GmbH was represented with the “Frankfurter Lichtdach” as light jump and gate to Frankfurt. From the main train station to the European Central Bank a light roof overdrew the Kaiserstraße of the Main-metropolis. At the same time the roof-shaped illumination built a bridge from the main train station with the financial district up to the business centre of Frankfurt’s city centre. A&O Technology implemented the project “Frankfurter Lichtdach” by the architect Prof. Wolfgang Rang and light planner Prof. Christian Bartenbach with the new xenon lighting system FALCON BEAM by manufacturer alpha one. 8 of the 4000W-xenon-beams were used for the production of the light-roof above the city.
