Norwegian Lighting Award 2016
ÅF Lighting wins the Norwegian Lighting Award 2016 for The Well.
The Norwegian Lighting Award for best indoor lighting has been awarded to ÅF Lighting for the lighting design for The Well – the largest spa and bathhouse of the Nordic region.
With a unique lighting design ÅF Lighting accentuates a stress-relieving atmosphere that guides visitors into a world of tranquillity, harmony and well-being of the spa.
The jury presented the award with the following statement: “The lighting concept is based on a metaphor of uneven wavelengths and wave heights where each room and zone has its own identity through lighting design that moves and affects the users in various ways through the facilities. Given the complexity and size of the project they have used an unusual control system with more than 70 diverse luminaires to create great variation through the entire facility. All luminaries are controllable, which is impressive knowing the size and volume of the project”.
The purpose of the lighting design was to create a stress-free environment and a relaxed experience for the guests, which includes easy orientation, where people feel secure and unexposed with a harmonious atmosphere. ÅF Lighting purposely created natural transitions between the various areas to avoid contrasts when you move from one area to another. Through delicate lighting the rooms appear inviting in the surrounding areas and the lighting in each recreational room creates coherence between them whilst accentuating their various functions.
“I am incredibly proud, grateful and humble to win yet another Norwegian Lighting Award and this time for The Well. Likewise, I am delighted and thankful for our lighting design team in Norway who created this project. And without close collaboration with architects, engineers, interior architects and the client this would not have been possible – so thank you to all our team members”, says a proud and happy Morten Jensen, manager of ÅF Lighting Oslo.
