Switcher / Messestand


Switcher is an exhibition stand for the Putzler GmbH designed for the light&building fair 2006 in Frankurt.

The exhibition stand primarily consists of two decisive scopes: the two walls.

On the left is a projection of a room, equipped with six Putzler lamps. With the help of a control desk equipped with six regular light switches and a multimedia application, the visitor turns those virtual lights on and off. That way he can directly see the atmospherical effect of a specific shining lamp in a room situation.

On the right, the wall serves as a classical presentation platform for the latest novelties of the Putzler lamp family.
