Bespoke Lighting 22 Rothschild

Location: 22 Rothschild Boulevard, Tel Aviv, Israel

Design: Rona Meyuchas Koblenz, rmkdesignoffice

Rona Meyuchas Koblenz designer and owner of rmkdesignoffice has just completed work on a bespoke lighting project which she was commissioned to create by the Aviv Group Israel.

22 Rothschild is positioned on one of the main and most beautiful streets running through Tel Aviv, full of historical buildings, restaurants, boutique hotels and a center of business.

The building sees the merging of the original Bachar House, designated for meticulous conservation, and the new 24-story office tower, overseen by the award winning architects Moshe Tzur and Orly Shrem. Joining the two buildings is a modern glass atrium bringing together the old and new aspects of this build and where Rona’s light is housed.

Concept:

Resembling an aquarium ,the atrium’s huge glass walls and 20 meter high ceiling posed a challenge – how to create a light that would not get lost in the space and to lower the feeling of the ceiling. The large glass walls connecting to the outside tree lined boulevard , led to considering the architects wish to bring the feeling of the trees inside.

Also due to the ceiling height, acoustics were bad and sound echoed around the space. This gave Rona the idea of creating huge gramophones. Both the concept of trees and gramophone heads can be clearly seen in the final light.

Making:

Rona started work on her concept for the lights in August 2013.

The installation is divided into two lights each measuring 11 meters tall by 5.5 meters and hung from the ceiling.

Made from aluminum coated in 7021 RAL black , LED sourced , the acrylic covering creates a light box effect allowing a decorative light to fill the atrium.

Produced and made in Israel by: QT Shevit, Rosenberg Metal Spinners, Kol Kifuf tube bending.

Design and Project management: Rona Meyuchas Koblenz

Design Assistant: Rona Zinger.

Assembly:

It took our team of electricians from Yesh Hashmal twenty two hours from start to finish to wire and construct the lights, with the first phase of wiring taking place at the factory of QT Shavit in Holon and the second phase of installation of the “trees” branch by branch in the atrium. Rona along with installation project manager Gonen Kahana oversaw the assembly and hanging of the two lights.
