Town Hall Hamburg

A beautiful city boosts the identification of its citizens with the place. Special Christmas lights make Zeven stand out among other cities.
The lighting concept is to have “clouds of glow worms” across the pedestrianised area. These clouds are distributed on an irregular pattern, some areas receive a concentration of light points, others less. The distribution places emphasis and responds to the existing site. Implementation of the clouds is based on a variation of four different elements of one system. Spiralling strings and lanterns with fairy lights form an airy mass of light points – “clouds of glow worms”.
