Office landscape meets world of experience: the south German outdoor shoe specialist Lowa combines creative departments and brand studio in its new premises. Light from ERCO at the location ensures both maximum visual comfort for creative work and an authentic display of the products. The zonal lighting concept is based on the principle of Human Centric Lighting and thus on human perception – entirely according to the needs of employees and the responsible use of energy resources.
Almost 100 years ago, the shoemaker's son Lorenz Wagner founded the company of Lowa in Jetzendorf, Germany, near the Alps. The company, which has advanced to become an outdoor specialist, has been drawing on the pioneering spirit of alpine mountaineers since the 1920s. The expertise is evident in the development of footwear able to withstand even the extreme conditions of mountain peaks exceeding 4,000 metres above sea level. The company is now expanding internationally, and needs more space for its rapidly growing workforce. In the adjacent town of Petershausen, Lowa set up an office and brand world for its marketing, design and development departments: this is intended to attract potential staff as well as international customers via a mountaineering-oriented interior concept and good accessibility from the nearby metropolis of Munich situated in the foothills of the Alps.
