Private Sauna

For a private residence, lighting designer Janez Skofic specified perimeter lighting and a soothing decorative starry sky built within the fabric of a sauna room. Zoran Kosmerl, from HAL, installed the system using sidelight guides and a mix of different diameter fibers for the oscillating starry sky.

Materials

HMG401, Microbraid sidelight guides driven by a MDI100 series, 150W discharge illuminator, with 4000º K ceramic metal halide lamps and dychroic color change.
High performance bare fiber types HBF201, HBF301, HBF401, HBF501 and HBF601 from 0,5 to 2,0mm diameter powered by MHI100 series, 100W halogen illuminator, dychroic lamp and oscillating starry sky motorized effect.

Steam Bath

For this combination shower-steam room, architect Zoran Kosmerl chose a fiber optics system embedded on the ceramic clad floors, and ceilings. The system affords a flat illuminance of 4-5 Lx or the equivalent of a full moon for an exceedingly relaxing atmosphere.

Materials

HCF201, high performance 1mm clad fibers for direct integration in mortar driven by MHI104 modular halogen illuminators with 50W halogen lamps and sequential dychroic color change.

Shower Enclosure

For this shower enclosure at a private residence, designer Atch Kosiyabong chose a scheme of fiber optics set around its perimeter and shining onto the marble cladding to obtain an indirect effect and subdued illuminance levels, fully dimmable and with color change, both accessible through remote control.

Materials

HLG201, 5mm high performance light guides with Megolon fire rated cladding.
MDI100 series, 150W discharge illuminators with 4000º K ceramic metal halide lamp.

Private Residence

For this open air shower, designer Atch Kosiyabong chose a scheme of fiber optics for the shower-heads and a starry sky effect on a side wall. The large-diameter fibers for the shower are enclosed in a watertight element injecting the light in the water to create an effect of liquid water that causes a sensation of wonder. The starry sky scheme has been included on a solid wall, the fibers fitted onto pre-drilled slabs of natural stone prior to its construction.

Materials
