Self-illuminating glass on the Nestlé Competence Center

The end of 2015 saw, as part of the third construction segment and the implementation of the Campus Nestlé, the completion of the new Competence Center at the central location, the Campusplatz on Lyoner Strasse in Frankfurt. Multiple installations with linear LED light inserts from the LEDLUX product portfolio are responsible for the impressive appearance of the building at night.

Self-illuminating glass on the Nestlé Competence Center

The end of 2015 saw, as part of the third construction segment and the implementation of the Campus Nestlé, the completion of the new Competence Center at the central location, the Campusplatz on Lyoner Strasse in Frankfurt. The three-storey structure was given a spacious entrance hall. This provides access to a shop on the ground floor. The first floor contains a large exhibition area for the self-presentation of the Nestlé corporation. If necessary, the rooms can be divided and then used to stage workshops. The second floor contains rooms for conferences, with the appropriate ancillary rooms. The conference rooms are divided up using flexible office partition walls. Multiple installations with linear LED light inserts from the LEDLUX product portfolio are responsible for the impressive appearance of the building at night. The highlight is formed by two flat, shining glass swords, which are mounted orthogonally to the face as a design element around the second floor. The three metre-high glass elements are illuminated by light inserts of type LEDLUX LX RGBW linear. The compact LED lines, which are recessed in special aluminium retaining profiles, couple the light into the lower edge of the panes of glass, where it is forwarded homogeneously across the surface through special grid printing. In this way, the glass elements seem to illuminate themselves. Thanks to the RGBW equipment of the light inserts, both coloured and crystal-clear white light can be set. A connection to the KNX allows recall of the preprogrammed static or dynamic light scenes from the existing building systems technology. A second LEDLUX installation illuminates the exterior around the ground floor. Installed in the instalight 4010 facade system, light inserts of type LEDLUX LH linear form a continuous white light line. Thanks to the integrated power supply unit, the LEDLUX version used can be connected directly to the 230 Volt supply, meaning a minimum of installation and planning work. Finally, the entrance portal of the Nestlé Competence Center is illuminated with LEDLUX. A continuous light line on three sides was installed using a delicate aluminium profile. Equipped with LEDLUX LN linear, this installation is optimised to the requirements for orientation and ambient lighting.

    The light line system serves as an ideal tool for effective building accentuation. Reduced to a minimum of material in mechanical terms, the LED light line supports the architectural building character but, when switched off, recedes almost invisibly into the background. In addition, the light insert stands out through a direct connection to the mains voltage and compatibility with standard dimmers.
