THE LIGHTING DESIGN FOR TAPPERIET BRUS WAS THE PRACTICAL PART OF MY MA GRADUATE PROJECT FROM DESIGN SCHOOL KOLDING, DEVELOPED IN THE FOUR MONTHS LEADING UP TO BRUS’ OPENING IN MAY 2016 IN COLLABORATION WITH THE CLIENT TO ØL AND RØMER/HARBO.

THE ACADEMIC SCOPE OF THE PROJECT WAS TO CREATE A QUALITATIVE AND CONTEXTUAL LIGHTING DESIGN METHODOLOGY, BY APPLYING METHODS FOR TESTING AND ITERATING WITH USERS THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT.

WHEN ASKING THE CLIENT WHAT THEY HAD LEARNED FROM THE COLLABORATION, THEY ANSWERED:

“TO THINK LIGHTING IN FROM THE START, AND DEFINE OPTIONS FOR WIRING AND POWER AS EARLY ON AS POSSIBLE. WE WERE CONCERNED ABOUT WHETHER IT WAS POSSIBLE TO LIGHT UP THIS SOMEWHAT DARK HUGE ROOM, BUT WE GOT POSITIVELY SURPRISED WITH THE PROJECT.”
