Inwido, AalborgInnovative showroom and office.
Inwido contacted LITE A/S for advice and guidance in the context of fitting out their new head office and showroom on the Aalborg waterfront. The building, which houses Inwido’s new premises, is an old warehouse, which was completely renovated to provide a modern workplace with a beautiful showroom and state-of-the-art conference facilities.
Everything possible was done to merge the modern décor with the impressive structures of the wonderful old building. That meant that the right choice of lighting was even more crucial, in order to highlight the ambience, the visible rafters and the building’s other special features. We selected a mixture of lamps with colour effects in soft and hard tones to suit the different spaces and the features they wanted to highlight.
In the showroom we created a solution, which creates a situation, in which, whatever group of products they wish to display, the lighting matches the colour of the logo for the group of products in question. All this is underpinned by the background lighting of the surrounding space. This also changes in accordance with the logo colour of the selected group of products, helping to provide a total atmosphere and enhance the impression.
Because the individual office environments are part of the overall showroom, it was crucial for LITE A/S to find a lighting solution for the desks in the actual workplace, which could blend elegantly with the overall picture. We chose the Red Dot Award-winning pendant light, After 8, whose unique look fits perfectly into the environment.
Inwido have acquired a unique showroom and an inspiring workplace.
Testimonial from INWIDO
“In connection with the design of Inwido Denmark’s new head office and showroom, I had the great pleasure of working with LITE. Inwido Denmark’s new head office is now based in one of the old warehouses on the Aalborg waterfront.
In terms of interior design, it was a challenge to transform the beautiful old premises into a modern working environment, while continuing to highlight the original building. Throughout the entire process, LITE’s Lars Andersen was responsive to our wishes and enhanced the whole interior design by adding lighting, which emphasises the focus on the lovely spaces and provides a wonderful atmosphere. We were given advice about lamps to provide soft light, hard spotlights and appropriate colour effects. All this added the finishing touches to a place, of which we are all proud and in which we want to stay.
The beautiful lamps above our desks are a great example of their excellent guidance. Because of time pressure, our intention was to stick with a standard lamp, but Lars persuaded us to be patient, because he had chosen a special lamp for us. Today I am convinced that Lars’ choice is absolutely spot-on. These attractive lamps add a simple and amazingly beautiful finishing touch to the space.
I am immensely satisfied with the positive collaboration we experienced with LITE and would strongly recommend the use of a lighting designer like Lars for advice and recommendations when it comes to lighting.”
