One of the most widely published photographers of contemporary architecture, Iwan Baan is noted for his documentary images that narrate the life and interactions occurring within architecture. We met the Amsterdam-born photographer at work in the northern French town of Lens, where he captured the poetic architecture of the new Louvre for ERCO. In our film interview Baan, who is in his mid-thirties, sheds light on his photographic style, his approach to architecture, and his first camera.
The Département Pas-de-Calais has always been known for its coal and heavy industry. The Louvre Lens has now added an attraction which, at first glance, appears far removed from its surroundings. It is a branch of the Louvre in Paris and yet conceptually of unusual compactness and rather unlike its big brother. Thanks to the architects of SANAA in Tokyo and the lighting designers of Arup in London, the Louvre Lens has become a milestone in the worldwide museum landscape.
Founded in 1970, the Levy Gallery has since been synonymous with Pop Art and Surrealism. The loft-like ambience on the outskirts of Eppendorf appeals to visitors with its open architecture as much as the enchanted sculpture garden with its fascinating interplay of art and nature. As a first rate gallery, the Levy Gallery exclusively represents such artists as Allen Jones, C.O. Paeffgen, Mel Ramos and Daniel Spoerri. The new lighting concept underlines the high standards set by Thomas Levy and his team.
Notable for its monumental concrete façade, the former flak bunker dating back to World War Two is now a characteristic feature of the urban image of Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg. Elaborately renovated and converted as part of the International Building Exhibition, IBA, today's power plant using renewable forms of energy supplies the surrounding residential district with clean energy and green heat. The café and exhibition zones of the Energy Bunker meanwhile invite visitors to embark on an exciting tour of discovery.
In an historic villa in Zinnowitz Pier14 has now extended its boutique concept for luxury fashion by adding a Concept Store with an exquisite bistro. Here, the regional fashion and lifestyle chain transports the flair of sophisticated Baltic resorts into the present: clear, modern architectural features alternate with seaman aesthetics and ornamental fin-de-siècle décor.
ERCO´s four downlight ranges manage in striking fashion to bring light into your architecture. Focus is given to delivering a perfectly coordinated lighting experience without special emphasis on the luminaires - no matter the spatial situation.
The open architecture of the Louvre Lens masterminded by SANAA, the sober setting and the comprehensive museum concept establish a fascinating dialogue. ERCO spoke to the museum director Xavier Dectot, the exhibition designer Adrien Gardère and the lighting designer Jeff Shaw about the ideas behind this project.
Museum lighting is one of ERCO's key areas of expertise. The new introductory page for projects of this nature provides comprehensive information on methods and lighting tools along with a range of other links to the Light Scout.
The overview page provides approaches and examples of diverse and efficient lighting solutions to present clothing in a professional light and develop a fitting image for the brand.
ERCO offers modern lighting technology for the outdoor area to illuminate façades, public squares and vegetation with efficient visual comfort.
The overview page provides approaches and examples of diverse and efficient lighting solutions to present hotels and restaurants in a professional light and develop a fitting atmosphere using light.
Cost-efficient, ergonomic lighting is indispensable for offices and administration buildings. At the same time, qualitative, perception-orientated lighting creates atmosphere, helps staff identify with their employer, and provides an attractive environment for customers and visitors.
This special project overview presents lighting projects from various areas using ERCO's LED lighting tools.
Using computer simulation as a medium, our application studies show how differently architecture can be interpreted with light. The photo-realistically simulated space situations provide valuable inspiration to designers and clients.
