A Wing

Hunter Douglas Architectural as ceiling supplier

An airport is a constantly expanding building project. Lufthansa, Frankfurt Airport’s biggest client, is growing likewise and A Wing in Terminal 1 was converted especially for the airline. The concept behind this conversion work is one of total transparency. All divisions necessary for orderly functioning on the inside consist of glass panels or simple stainless steel railings. The interior is characterized by select materials and colors. There is also a very low-key information sign system which serves to underscore the overall noble and elegant impression. The all-dominating feature of the interior, however, is the design of the ceiling and its accompanying lighting. The light is reflected from the edges of folded aluminum sheets that are illuminated by lights visibly integrated under the ceiling. This makes the ceiling, which initially seems low and oppressive appear higher than it actually is and devoid of material. Deliberately designing areas to be lit with varying degrees of intensity counters the mishmash of lighting usually evident in such spaces. Not least of all, the select materials, a restrained color palette, careful textures and the carefully considered lighting solutions should also leave their mark on the Lufthansa image.

Lufthansa Senator Lounge

BEGA as Lighting

A pleasant atmosphere, a spacious amount of room and sophisticated furnishings are the characteristics of the Lufthansa Senator Lounge concept. Frankfurt Airport now has this waiting area, equipped with these classical luminaires.

The waiting areas offer business travellers and holidaymakers an important relaxation area, which requires harmonious but at the same time functional illumination. The top quality glass cylinders of the table lamps provide uniform light distribution for reading and relaxing.

Arranged in pairs, these luminaires are customised for fixed installation. In the standard version, the glass cylinder is mounted on a high-quality stainless steel base. Three different sizes and various light sources make them attractive lighting elements.
