Corridors & entrées are transfer zones with a narrative function: functionality-wise they are only connecting places, however they do tell a lot about the residents – whether through art on the walls, framed family memories or simply through furniture, color scheme and lighting design. A skillful lighting design creates atmosphere – and at the same time underlines the identity of the residents.
Corresponding corridor lighting
Whatever its shape, the lighting in your corridor should follow the proportions of the architecture and luminaires should be arranged accordingly.
Luminaires of the Mito linear series correspond in their reduced design language with any architecture and gently illuminate staircases and corridors.
Favorites for corridors & hallways
A real highlight – pendant luminaires
Seemingly floating, Mito sospeso, in combination with the illuminated ceiling, opens this entrance and makes the room appear sublime.
Playing with light – illuminating long corridors
If you want to counteract the length, it is advisable to brighten the walls with direct light selectively. The corridor will then be segmented and perceived as shorter. Combined with pictures, the corridor becomes a private gallery.
Recessed spotlights such as lui piano deliberately withdraw themselves and yet provide focused light. Surface-mounted spotlights can be used just as effectively where no space has been left in the ceiling.

Design meets function – stairwell lighting
The art here, however, lies in skillfully adding function to the aesthetic aspect: Stair steps should be clearly recognizable and the luminaires should not protrude too far, but should be discreetly recessed.
Mito soffitto can be used as both ceiling and wall luminaire and provides absolutely glare-free light even in narrow stairways. The following luminaires of the io or Sento series enliven functional staircases with their characteristic light cones.
