Leuchtturm/Light house, Jena, Germany, Installation, 2015
To accomplish the desired effect, each window of the tower’s 7 top floors was equipped with a single, controllable LED lamp, as well as a specially produced and recyclable shutter, that reflects the light to the outside, while giving shade to the inside. The shutters were designed to be easily
removable at daytime, since the offices were in use while the performance took place.
A major requirement for the technical installation was the tenants’ demand that no cables can be running on corridors or block doors from closing. For that reason, the buidlings’ optical fiber network was used to distribute the data-signal on each floor and via Cat6 Ethernet to each single office. Due to the utilization of the existing infrastructure, kilometers of cable could be saved and interference with the office routine was reduced to a minimum.
