A real beauty – Traxon LED lighting enhances the unique architecture of the headquarters of Omnicos
Omnicos – Bagnolo Cremasco, Italy
In September 2017 the new headquarters of Omnicos, the cosmetics company, was opened in the Italian municipality of Bagnolo Cremasco. The building has a total area of 8,700 square meters and accommodates the administration, R&D and production departments. Star architect Beppe Riboli was responsible for the architecture and lighting design. In realizing his lighting concept, he put his trust in Traxon e:cue as a full solution provider. The outdoor areas and the headquarters building were equipped with Traxon LED lighting.
Location: Bagnolo Cremasco, Italy
The new headquarters of the Omnicos cosmetics company was completed in only eleven months. The complex consists of three buildings. The main building is the headquarters with offices and areas for receiving customers. The other two buildings are the "Diamond" laboratory, connected to the headquarters by a pedestrian tunnel, and the production building. A large outdoor area completes the complex with easy parking for customers and employees, as well as service areas. The building is truly state of the art, not just architecturally but also with regard to its technical systems – for example in terms of climate neutrality. Omnicos placed great emphasis on efficiency and sustainability for the energy supply and also for the lighting concept. The bright and generously proportioned headquarters has a geothermal system and a photovoltaic system and is equipped with LED lighting throughout. The architecture and the lighting have been designed to ensure that the 140 people who work there feel completely comfortable in their surroundings. The result is a futuristic complex which radiates an atmosphere of lightness thanks, among other things, to a unique swarm of 7,700 butterflies that adorn the main building. In implementing his lighting concept, architect Beppe Riboli placed all his trust in Traxon’s expertise. This holistic approach ensures that the fully controllable and dimmable LED luminaires operate in perfect harmony and provide the ideal accompaniment for Riboli’s innovative architecture. The customer, Omnicos, has itself called the result a masterpiece.
Aesthetic, minimalist and functional: outdoor LED lighting
The entire outdoor area is lit by Traxon LED systems. Nano Liner Allegro AC XB fixtures from Traxon were chosen to illuminate the office building facades and their butterfly cutouts; this slim linear lighting system for outdoor applications has an impressively high output and energy efficiency. A vertical cutoff system marks the south facade of the production building into which Linear Light Flex Short Pitch LED strips were inserted to create an unusual lighting effect.
