LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The 2009 GE Edison Award was presented to Andreas Schulz and Alexander Rotsch of Licht Kunst Licht AG (Bonn, Germany) for lighting EnBW City in Stuttgart, Germany. A personalized Steuben crystal award for the 27th-annual lighting design competition was presented by GE Lighting on May 11, 2010 in Las Vegas. The GE Edison Award competition is open to those lighting professionals who creatively employ significant use of GE light sources (lamps and/or LEDs) in a lighting design project completed during the previous calendar year.
Light is energy, and energy is the business of EnBW, the third largest supplier of power, gas and water in Germany. And energy is made tangible throughout their new headquarters complex, the EnBW City, designed by architect Lars Klatte from the firm RKW Rhode Kellermann Wawrowsky.
Inside the entry hall, a luminous cloud of polished aluminum wire and innumerable xenon light points defines the visual center of the space. Complemented by two water feature walls, it forms a narrative approach to the theme of energy. The mirrored surfaces of the glass and water enhance the brilliance of the space.
Full glazing allows plenty of daylight into the entry hall. Grouped in sets of four, downlights with GE 70-watt ConstantColor® CMH® T6 3000 K ceramic metal halide lamps are attached to the roof structure, and provide light and shadow.
