Più alto – purist accents using light

The black pigmented wall surfaces inside the house are set off by Più alto spotlights in matt black.

They give the raw concrete a warm radiance and create a comfortable setting with their light. At the same time, the rotating and pivotable spotlights offer the necessary flexibility to adapt to changes made in the interior.

Light as a curator

The characteristic lighting effects of the purist surface-mounted spotlight makes any art on the wall seem superfluous. Indeed, the light serves an almost curatorial role: It turns the concrete into a stage and playfully brings out its materiality.

Harmonious illumination for the dining table

The styling of Mito volo, the suspended luminaire from the Mito linear series, caters to the cubist architecture – and retreats elegantly from the design. Thanks to the optional height adjustment feature, it floats at any desired height – while the cables disappear out of sight into the canopy.

Mito raggio – calming light

Amid the cool concrete and the natural landscape outside the windows, Mito raggio provides tranquillity.

The soft light from the arc luminaire falls protectively on the lounge chair – and creates a welcoming place to retreat.

The exposed concrete walls defy the floods. Have you ever regretted choosing black concrete?

Stephan Gottinger: At first, we thought the black concrete might look too dark and oppressive. When the concrete was poured, it looked like tar to start with. But as the walls were gradually finished, it all came together.

Martin Hermann: At that point we could already see how high the ceilings would be – by then we had no more doubts. Although the walls are black, the rooms have a liberating feel.

What influence does the light have on this effect?

Martin Hermann: The dark concrete actually has a warm color, which the lighting really brings out. It makes the raw material shine and creates a cosy atmosphere. The warm interior light also reinforces this atmosphere of being protected.

What role does light play in your life in the new house?

Stephan Gottinger: It plays a very important role, especially in the evenings and at night. As we can position the spotlights flexibly and use different settings for the light, we can always generate a new ambience.

Martin Hermann: In our home, we don’t just switch the light on or off – we create different light scenarios. Whether we are sitting on the sofa or cooking for our guests, we use light very consciously.
