Freedom Berlin style, houseboat
How did you tackle your Occhio lighting on the houseboat?
Susann Meise: Our goal at Occhio is to simulate daylight. This means extending the natural light when the sun has set. But you have to be practical on a boat. For example, you can’t hang pendant luminaires. They would sway too much due to the boat rocking on the water. We had to be restrained and efficient with the lighting. We put Mito soffitto ceiling luminaires on the walls and we mounted the luminaires on the wall in the bedroom to make them resemble portholes on a ship.
