Advertising media as design element
Luminous orchestration of advertising and artwork in the outdoor space
Light boxes for posters played a central role as design elements for the redevelopment of the 7 Swiss central railway terminals . Architectural and space requirements called for new standards for aesthetics, overall depth, service, robust build and maintenance. As an addition to the tried and tested free-standing BURRI Light Boxes LK2000 and Soleil poster media, BURRI has developed a particularly flat light box system for wall mounting. With an overall depth of only 65mm and a surface area of up to 6m², the LK 4000 has extended the margins of the design process. Accordingly, architects have implemented the new light box series as important design elements in high-profile projects. Two outstanding examples are the design gallery in the Serletta multi-story car park in St. Moritz by Bearth & Deplazes and the large-scale waiting areas with 192 showcases and B12 light panels at the Bahnhofplatz Zurich by Dürig AG architects.
