For almost 70 years, the globally active cultural institution “Goethe-Institut Ukraine” in Kiev has been the first contact with Germany for many people. It promotes knowledge of the German language and fosters international cooperation.
For the redesign of the library, the lighting designers had to meet all requirements in terms of interior design and user comfort with just a few luminaire types. The wittenberg 4.0 luminaire series from mawa is ideally suited for this purpose. It is the most versatile in the portfolio.
As linear profiles up to seven metres long, the Mawa Wittenberg 4.0 light heads primarily emphasise the slender floor plan geometries. And below the central vault apexes, they have been integrated into circular chandeliers, with a diameter of up to two metres.
In international sales, special import regulations often have to be observed. For example, Ukraine insists on compliance with the IPPC standard of wooden packaging material. This standard was implemented for the transport construction for the safe delivery of the chandeliers by Mawa.
Meeting all requirements for room design and user comfort with just a few luminaire types is the goal of many planners.
In the library of the Goethe Institute in Kiev, this concept was implemented in a particularly vivid way. For almost 70 years, this globally active cultural institution has been the first contact with Germany for many people. It promotes knowledge of the German language and fosters international cooperation.
The Goethe Institute launched a competition for the design of the premises. Interior design firms based in Ukraine were invited to “create more space for communication” and “put people at the centre”. The result is inviting and flexibly usable spaces that cleverly combine the analogue and digital media inventory.
