Tunnel

For Maastricht`s Kruisherenhotel  Ingo Maurer designed an entrance tunnel that welcomes guests with his glowing light and leads them into the nave.

On the polished copper surface light reflections of a luminous line in the floor mingle with those of the surroundings.

Several models in different scales built in the in-house workshop  where necessary to study form & lighting effects. 

The final shape and construction of the tunnel was completely modeled in 3D CAD, a complex task that I realized in Solid Works.

The tunnel was then built and installed by a car body constructor.
