The Design Museum

Concept: The Holon Design Museum has a noticeably minimalistic approach that requires exceptionally integrated architectural lighting. The indoor museum gallery includes a particularly diverse set of artwork, and its collection requires a high level of lighting flexibility in order to successfully maintain the space’s modern, innovative ambience.

Challenge: Combining a minimal design approach with the necessary amount of lighting flexibility in order to complement the building’s architecture and exhibition areas.

Solution: RTLD’s architectural lighting design incorporates linear lighting that integrates directly with the building’s architecture lines. This linear lighting approach was used throughout the lines of the buildings, tribune stairs and handrails. The main exhibition hall includes a very specific and unique linear ceiling structure and skylight which we were able to highlight with the use of indirect light incorporated directly into the building’s infrastructure. This element enables the interior space to glow at night and enhances the building’s interior look. Together with the interior, spot-based track light system, this lighting plan creates an atmosphere in which guests can fully experience the various design exhibitions.
