Bitburg, Spittelplatz

27. February 2017

In 2015 we won a lighting design competition for the newly conceived Spittelplatz in the historical center of Bitburg. The lighting concept aims at the climatically rather rough situation in the Eifel region.

Especially the fountain was modified for this project. Next to the water pumps a fog-machine was installed which sends every full hour fog fluid through a pipe system to the holes in the floor tiles where jet nozzles for the water and RGB-LED-light fixtures are placed.

Thus the programmed choreography allow to evoke the sensation of an autumn fog landscape or a volcano eruption with fire-like fog and colour schemes (the Eifel region is of volcanic origin).
