The spiral is a luminous sculpture that seems to grow out of the ceiling. The first of these recessed ceiling luminaires was designed & installed in 2005.  Three further versions have been realized since then. The shapes where based on mathematical formulas or where drawn as 3d-splines following hand sketches from Ingo Maurer.

Free form surface modeling in 3d was the precondition to construct a mould and build the object from it.

The spiral is made of fiberglass and carbon fibre. Installed in the ceiling it becomes part of the architecture.

A led line follows the shape, an additional downlight emits concentrated light downwards.
