G-Concept: The intelligent Integrated Solution The G-Concept combines luminaires with prefabricated gypsum
elements for use in dry lining. Made of gypsum plaster, the channels and modules are matched exactly to the individual lighting system. Consistently high quality is ensured by mechanised production. This approach makes it easy for the designer to integrate the lighting scheme into the overall architectural concept. Distinctiveness is the hallmark of the G-Concept. Whether you are lighting for effect or to provide low-energy ambient illumination, an abundance of options are available. The G-Concept enables you to save time and money, while giving free rein to your imagination.
In architecture, first impressions are made by the entrance. Here, an ideal lighting concept makes the visitor feel immediately welcome and at ease. Much the same applies, of course, throughout the building. At the same time, the host is to be presented in the light in which he wishes to be seen. Designers are delighted, therefore, that the G-Concept can accommodate every kind of character and reputation.
hotel “ „Boutique a rather overblown label?
The term is thought to have originated when upmarket restaurants and exclusive hotels
began to install eccentric furniture and sanitary ware crafted by French celebrity designers. But let‘s be honest, no hotel is built or furnished without a plan. From a purely logical perspective and with a little mischievous intent, even the most rundown joint
could be labelled as a boutique hotel. We, on the other hand, would prefer to describe a well designed hotel as a work of art in which guests can sleep in comfort, eat and drink well, attend an important conference,
or simply relax in a cultivated atmosphere. Within such a work of art, light inevitably plays a major part. In a sophisticated hotel,
the G-Concept is rather like the first-class staff: at the service of the guests around the clock,
and imperceptibly discreet.
Studio theatre â€‰ orâ€‰opera house? Some like it utilitarian and dispassionate, while others prefer emotion and melodrama. With the G-Concept, you can put on just about any kind of stage show. From subtle highlights in small, elegant designer stores to brilliant light shows in shopping malls, and from cool understatement to prestigious lighting schemes at home.

ood lighting is good for the soul. Creating a sociable or intimate atmosphere is one of the things that lighting does best. The G-Concept enables you to create your own oasis of calm with a personalised combination of background and accentuating lighting in both private and commercial properties.
In the workplace, ergonomics and the increasingly important sense of well-being are sometimes uneasy companions. For successful companies that combine function with inspiration in their offices, it stands to reason, therefore, that creative architectural lighting plays a key role. The G-Concept enables you to produce a pleasant and motivating working atmosphere, from the foyer and the conference suite to informal meeting rooms. At the same time, it gives you an opportunity to present the corporate culture and image in the right light.
