The mulitmedia centre with its long glass and stainless façade is a contemporary beacon in Terrasson, in the French Dordogne department. ETAP's R8 diffusors complete the aesthetic picture.
The design of the spaces lead to a lot of browsing, leafing through and researching printed as well as electronic reading material. A red curtain makes for a cosy corner and invites children to the reading hour. Whimsical and colourful ceiling units provide the interior with a fairy-tale touch.The cylindrical R8 luminaires emphasise the multimedia centres dynamic appeal. Sober lines alternate with sections where the luminaires seem to be randomly suspended from the ceiling. The diffusers spread a comfortable light, which is pleasant for reading. With the HaloOptics diffusor the luminaires provide sufficient illuminance, without blinding the readers.
