Welcome, Stefano Vegnuti

«Strictly speaking, it wasn't love at first sight. I only discovered lighting design late and slowly over the course of my studies. And yet, part of me has always been fascinated by light, which has, over the years, grown closer to my heart. Light is omnipresent, enchanting, impressive, and surprisingly powerful – in every sense of the word: it completely upset the career path I had long imagined, leading me from the Mediterranean to the foot of the Swiss Alps, where I’ve found a new home – and not least, a true passion. I look forward to many exciting projects at Reflexion» – Stefano

20 Years of Reflexion

Reflexion is 20 years young and celebrates this occasion with its employees.

Together, we visited the kiln tower in the Brickworks Museum in Cham, where Reflexion was able to provide the lighting.

Roger Boltshauser developed the kiln tower with his students, completing it in 2021. Thanks to prestressing the clay building, an oversized exhibition space is created. The roof can be walked on as an observation deck, offering fantastic views of the surrounding nature.

About the special – panel discussion in the Careum Auditorium

Architecture and lighting design

Reflexion sent out invites for a dialogue conference regarding customized luminaires. On September 5th, the architects Roger Boltshauser, Mike Guyer and Peter Märkli spoke with Jürg Zumtobel, the developer Markus Mettler and Reflexion founder Thomas Mika about customized lighting at a panel discussion in the Careum Auditorium in Zurich.

Do you need a unique luminaire and when is it used? How does the collaboration work in their development and what is the role of it in architecture? The top-class and cheerful podium dealt with these questions and cast a spell over the audience.

At the beginning of the event, Christof Bhend, the architect of the Careum Auditorium, presented his project. He also dealt in particular with the light in the underground auditorium and the special lights, that were developed together with the Reflexion.

Martina Lehr, CEO of Reflexion, provided an insight into the everyday life of the lighting designer in connection with the development of special luminaires. It takes strength and conviction to go the path of your own development and this is characterized by pleasure and suffering in equal measure.

The subsequent aperitif offered the opportunity for a lively exchange in a good mood and we look back on a successful event.

Golden rabbit for Pool Architects

We congratulate you warmly: pool Architekten was awarded the golden rabbit from «Hochparterre» for their architecture in the new Campus University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland. The large scale of the cube was recognized with a breathtaking atrium that creates plenty of space for encounters. In our lighting concept, natural light is symbiotically supplemented with discreet artificial light. Since there is nothing to add to the unique architecture that speaks for itself, we did without dominant decorative elements. Rather, lighting solutions were used that blend completely with the architecture.
