In June 2022, after several years of construction work, Atruvia AG [previously Fiducia & GAD IT AG], officially opened its new and impressive company campus at its Karlsruhe location.

With this extension, the existing buildings were connected skilfully to the five new buildings. In the foyer of the central reception area, an aesthetic ceiling-lighting solution from durlum was used.

Powder-coated in white, this LOOP design ceiling blends elegantly into the spacious lobby. Because individual elements were cut to size on location, a simple operation, it was possible to adapt the module size of this ceiling to the organic shape of the skylights. The design ceiling is secured to the suspended ceiling, comprising rectangular metal panels lined with acoustic fleece, by magnets and retaining cables. Integrated PUNTEO - J60 LED downlights deliver a fine and brilliant quality of lighting. With its antiglare ring, the recessed luminaire is almost invisible, preserving the visual impression of an endless ceiling.
