Traditional values meet innovative ideas: Thurgauer Kantonalbank [TKB] is embedded in this canton with 28 branches and it is committed to being close to its customers and fostering longterm relationships. At the same time, this leading universal bank is developing continuously, offering a diverse range of contemporary services aimed at meeting the needs of about 190 000 customers.

This dialogue between a homely atmosphere and modern architecture has been implemented to great effect during the renovation of this branch of the bank in Romanshorn on the south coast of Lake Constance. durlum provided an appropriate ceiling-lighting solution. With dur-GRAPHICS printing technology, a ceiling design was created to meet the wishes of its customers. Various points that vary in terms of colour and size, forming round and geometric shapes – creating a uniquely individual ceiling design. In addition, white powder-coated, unprinted rectangular metal panels were installed in the in-house canteen.

The flush-mounted LUMEO®-R luminaires provide appropriate lighting. Modern lighting technology and the translucent DUROSATIN® cover made of a flexible and tear-resistant material imbue the illuminated surfaces with a living character. Implemented as recessed installed and surface-mounted luminaires, they blend harmoniously into the interior design and deliver homogeneous lighting.

The boundaries between the areas for bank staff and customers are fluid – a modern bank that has addressed these challenges and that now presents itself as a successful combination of transparency and discretion.
