An office with an intrinsic value

  • Year: 2019
  • Location: Jönköping

A city needs old buildings to maintain a sense of permanency and heritage. Architect firm Tengbom's is situated in such a building, the Fire Tower. Now in a new up-to-date light.

Tengbom is one of Scandinavia's leading architectural offices. The Jönköping office is situated in an old fire and police station, built in 1898, called Brandtornet (Fire tower). The premises in which Tengbom now have their office, is the former gymnastic hall for the fire fighters.

The old characteristic interior was emphasised and enhanced with our pendant luminaire Notor 78. We wanted to highlight the unique red-brown roof by tightening the luminaire's expressions so that they melted in as well as possible, while giving a really nice functional work light. This gave a minimalist and discreet impression, with the colour of the luminaire like the ceiling.
