Café 3440, Wildspitzbahn, Austria
Café 3440 is the Austria’s highest café, situated at the new Wildspitzbahn top station. The suspended terrace at exactly 3,440 m above sea level offers uninterrupted panoramic views of the Alpine scenery. Café 3.440 is encircled by more than fifty mountains higher than three thousand meters, from where you can enjoy in the awesome Alpine panorama.
For this fantastic Café we have cooperated with Austrian producer of light fixtures 2F Hotellicht in the process of developing of a specific lighting solution which will create soft indirect light without any obstruction to people inside, when looking from the inside (including the interior terrace) or from outside towards the Café. For that purpose, a custom made LED light fixture was made with special asymmetric, diffuse and not-glaring optics. This light fixtures are mounted on poles which was the only one position allowed by the Client. The light effect is created by indirect light reflected from white ceiling. Light visualizations were made prior to the product design, in order to show the planned light effect.
