Andy Wolf, an Austrian independent spectacle brand, is strongly characterised by a manufacturing mind-set. This mind-set is clearly represented in physical form at the company's headquarters in Hartberg, where a new building with offices and a showroom, and fronted by a Corten steel façade, nestles into the landscape on the edge of an industrial park. The design – featuring clear-cut forms, natural-looking artisan-like materials and a reduced colour scheme – is by the kasp.architektur firm of architects. Architect Christoph Kaspar collaborated with lighting designer Daniel Jokesch from Ökoplan Energiedienstleistungen to integrate a lighting system in fitting with the company's design concept. It lights up workplaces and the showroom in daylight-like quality. The result is a resounding success thanks to the versatile and tailored deployment of Nimbus luminaires – which not only ensure perfect showcasing of the spectacle models in the showroom but also create perfect working conditions in production. Parallels can not only be found in terms of design but also in the calibre of the products: high quality in production not only plays a key role at Andy Wolf but at Nimbus too.
