The lobby Canada Israel’s elegant offices boasts a skylight-like fixture above the reception desk, giving the feel of natural sunlight as well as providing functional work lighting. The large conference room is separated from the floor by a strip light installed at the bottom to give the appearance that it’s floating. The ceiling of the conference room is the translucent bottom of an ornamental pool located on the roof, and from it hangs a lighting fixture designed by Ingo Maurer, resembling a bird’s wings, complementing the outside light.
The offices are decorated in a modern style with monochromatic color scheme, with playful injections of color and visual interest scattered throughout the space. Cylindrical light fixtures hang from the ceiling at different heights and colors in the staff cafeteria. The main conference room is illuminated by the Heracleum fixture from Moooi, inspired by the crowns of the Greek gods. Functional lighting is provided by spots embedded into the wooden ceiling.
The corridors are illuminated by lights fitted into hidden slots, and the steps of the suspended staircase leading to the roof are crafted from wood, allowing daylight to break through and light the space.
The smaller conference room, with the round table, is illuminated by VIABIZZUNO’s CURVO 094 ring profile system with industrial-looking spotlights installed on it. The table and fixture are the same size, and embedded into the table is an upward facing light which highlights the distance between the table and the ceiling.
