    September 11 Memorial

    The World Trade Center Memorial in NYC, NY is designed to be the centerpiece of the new World Trade Center. The landscape architect, Peter Walker, and the architectural lighting designer, Paul Marantz, chose to work with Selux to create lighting specifically for this eco-friendly public space. The MTR column was designed to resemble the shape of the Twin Towers. These columns provide directional lighting capabilities and utilize glare free refractor technology for enhanced visual comfort of the many visitors who occupy the walkways and public plaza. The Memorial Plaza was envisioned to be one of the most sustainable, green plazas ever constructed. The project is currently pursuing LEED Gold certification and is built to meet the requirements of both the New York State Executive Order 11 and the WTC Sustainable Design Guidelines, which promote environment-friendly practices. The MTR Columns were chosen for efficient and accommodating design, low energy, and high productivity.

    “Semper lux” – always light. When Hermann Bansbach started his company in Berlin in 1948, the city still lay in ruins, with hardly any electricity or light. Hermann Bansbach brought light into this dark time by brightening up the lives of Berliners with a simple,affordable battery lamp. He believed that light had a social and cultural significance that went far beyond doing business and making a profit. That mindset is still alive today. We also find it fascinating how we can add to the quality of people’s lives through sophisticated lighting concepts. That is how Semperlux became Selux – and how a craftman’s shop in Berlin turned into a global company with 500 employees in Europe, North America, and Australia. Today the company generates over 80 % of its revenues outside of Germany.
