Mema Designs were tasked with creating unique light fixtures for the atrium of 19 Ameshof’s new headquarters situated in the trendy, gentrified district of Braamfontein in Johannesburg, South Africa. The architects were looking for a lighting design that would complement the seven-meter high cavernous space and incorporate a more human scale within the space.
Mema Designs took the new challenge in their stride and together with the award-winning design team, Sian and Elonah, and Ari’s electrical design and logistical management, we created a beautiful light-weight, floating canopy or ‘cloud’ to hang over the seating area. The clusters of petal lamps create an ambient starlight effect against the metal textile surface that gently floats under the atrium ceiling, a beautiful contrast to the dark painted walls. After months of planning, design, engineering, and meticulous attention to detail, the 19 Ameshof project has come together beautifully!
