LIGHTING PADS FOR THE SHARED CENTRE 
Two architectural offices have set up shop in a former Stuttgart textile factory. Nimbus products ensure light and concentration. 


Hi-Res  |  Lo-Res

The factory building in Seyfferstrasse in Stuttgart once produced children's clothes. This was the site where the textile company Bleyle knitted the sailor suits so popular at the turn of the century, before going on to become one of Germany's best-known underwear producers.

Constructed in the year 1911 by the architect Philipp Jakob Manz as a so-called daylight factory with large window openings, part of the building is now occupied by the architectural offices weinbrenner.single.arabzadeh and Orange Blu. The interior partitioning of the listed building has been carefully adapted to its new purpose. This included the addition of conference rooms, a kitchen and a model construction workshop used jointly by both offices. The work zones, however, are separated. The architects were also convinced by the fact that they were able to improve room acoustics and realise a harmonious lighting solution with products from a single source – namely from Nimbus. The design, precise detail and appealing materiality also met with great appreciation. Apart from the Lighting Pads, the architects also deployed Office Air floor-standing luminaires for the workplace, Squeeze suspended luminaires and sound-absorbing Rossoacoustic panels. The architects' offices are on the ground floor. When extending the rental spaces, both offices had the aim of creating a central communicative zone as a shared centre adjoining both office spaces. Conference rooms, two printing centres, a kitchen and a workshop are used synergistically. Industrial charm and high rooms characterise the well-lit, generously sized work zones.

LIVELY LIGHT EFFECT AND A TOUCH OF FLAIR

Pleasant acoustics are created in this zone by the sound-absorbing Pads with integrated lighting – Nimbus Lighting Pads. Acoustically effective Rossoacoustic TP30 Silence room partitioning elements have also been installed. As architect Frank Marohn, the office manager at weinbrenner.single.arabzadeh, explains: "Thanks to the combination of panels and carpets, we have very good room acoustics although the large spaces are not partitioned. What's more, the indirect illumination of the ceiling combined with the Pads creates a lively light effect and adds a touch of flair to the overall impression of the underside of the ceiling."

OFFICE AIR – THE NIMBUS CLASSIC AT THE WORKPLACE

In addition to Nimbus wall luminaires, slim, elegant Nimbus Office Air floor-standing luminaires were used for direct and indirect workplace lighting. These are among the most efficient floor-standing workplace luminaires in our wide-ranging portfolio. Here is what Marohn replied when asked about the company's reasons for selecting Nimbus products: "What makes the Nimbus luminaires stand out in our eyes is the outstanding light quality, a harmonious design and impressive function." The design-conscious staff is also impressed by the office's new atmosphere.
