Selux lights the Goblin Room

Selux lights the Goblin Room

Quadratic Kju LED luminaires by Selux were installed in this triple-winged, prestigious, neo-baroque building where the US General Lucius D. Clay met with the provincial government to lay the foundations for the rebuilding of modern Germany.

The new LED lighting system is precisely harmonized with the needs of listed buildings, combining as it does aspects of aesthetics, power and functionality superbly.

The Villa Reitzenstein is to Baden-Württembergers what the White House is to US citizens. Initially, starting in the 1920s, the villa served as the residence for the President of the State of Würtemberg and, since 1952 and the foundation of a new state, it has been home to the Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg in Germany’s south-west.

In refurbishing the villa the goal was to compensate the “1970‘s trend for modernisation”. Accordingly the lighting planners from the Berlin bureau Lichtvision removed an ungainly pendant light structure for direct and indirect room lighting that used outdated, conventional light sources and had previously dominated this conference room.

Quadratic Kju LED luminaires by Selux were then installed in the individual compartments of the carefully restored cassette ceiling made from cream-coloured varnished wood via a special suspension.

As well as its highly-efficient LED lighting technology, a further particular feature of this luminaire is its flat, precisely shaped luminaire body made from transparent PMMA. The double wall design with additional, opal optics on the inside generates an attractive look and feel, enabling particularly uniform diffusion of LED light in the warm light colour 3000 Kelvin. This creates soft lighting within the room, which is perceived by users as particularly reader-friendly.
