Zumtobel redesigns Swiss customer centre

(Switzerland) – Zumtobel welcomed around 200 guests to Zurich to mark the redesign of its Light Centre.

The Zumtobel Group recently celebrated the redesign of its Zurich Light Centre with a special opening ceremony.

Around 200 guests attended the official opening of the 740sqm site, located on Thurgauerstrasse 39, in the Swiss city to take in its conceptual redesign.

Intended to create a “future-oriented customer platform”, the Light Centre aims to convey the experience of light in its various applications, underlining the extensive lighting expertise of the Zumtobel Group and its brands.

“We are delighted to have created a future-oriented platform for our customers with the new Light Centre Zurich, which shows everything from light to IoT solutions,” said Marc-André Rusch, General Manager of Zumtobel Switzerland.

“The final location inspires and creates an inviting space to discuss and design lighting solutions together with our customers. It is a place where light can be experienced, and it is enormously important to us to be able to convey this experience of light to our customers.”

With the renovation of the Light Centre – initially opened in 1999 by light artist James Turrell – its content has been revised. The underlying concept of the new centre is an open space, part of which can be utilised flexibly. Its various themes encourage exchange and networking, offering customers and employees a lively and dynamic meeting area that at the same time provides room for presentation of the latest product and system innovations and smart lighting solutions.

A special highlight of the newly renovated Light Centre is the Zumtobel Masterpiece by US architect Daniel Libeskind, visible both from inside and outside, behind the glass façade.

To mark the launch of the redesigned centre, EOOS designer Harald Gründl from Vienna, Austria, presented the new Zumtobel Supersystem integral collection with specifically created wall reliefs, which will remain at the new Light Centre as exhibits.
