HABAU, Aachen

Company signs and logos are not just elements of architecture and building infrastructure, but also the business cards of buildings and companies. Highly elegant and impressive solutions can be realized with original LUCEM light transmitting concrete panels.

The translucent concrete transports the light from the back side to the surface using the embedded optical fibers. Thus, the surface begins to fascinatingly shine from within. When the backlighting is switched off, the concrete surface has a calm, natural stone-like appearance; when the backlighting is on, it shines in exciting, surprising materiality. Special lighting effects can be achieved by colored backlighting. Logos, inscriptions, patterns and a wide range of light colors can be realized with different techniques.


For the construction company HABAU in Aachen, a company sign has been implemented in the interior of the company headquarters.

In this project, LUCEM lpanels in the format of 160 x 60 cm and a freely programmable lighting technology have been used.

The panels have been installed with the new surface version „brushed satin finish“. The company sign has an overall dimension of 360 x 160 cm.

The company logo has been created by a newly developed lighting technology and can be controlled in colors, brightness and color changes independently of the surrounding lighting technology.

The lighting technology consists of a weather-resistant POM housing with letter segments cut from the solid inside the letters. The color change LEDs are wired in the letters in parallel so that all letters light up in the same way at the same time.

All other surfaces are also filled with RGB LEDs and can be controlled separately from the letters.
