Project Description

Megaron of Music – Athens Concert Hall

Monumental chandeliers for the main staircases and hallways

Athens was to have a new concert hall to be ready for the Olympic Games 2004.
The contract for lighting went directly to us as we were the only company on the market able to offer tested earthquake-proof chandeliers in such big dimensions.
Together with architect Ernst W. Beranek we developed three different designs for the five main staircases. The longest, a design by Stefan Rath, is nearly 20 meters high and weighs over two tons.
The Megaron of Music is mostly built underground, only the top floor and the entrance entrance hall are visible from the outside.
