David Chipperfield's new public library of Des Moines, Iowa, USA, features a 3500 m² metallic sheen glass facade. Over 7,300 feet of M60 Direct suspended and recessed provide the lighting for this award winning centerpiece of urban renewal for Des Moines. Opened in 2006, the Public Library features "green" design and is said to "convey the atmosphere of the city" due its unique design, aesthetics, and pragmatic approach for both energy conservation and user friendliness.

  • The M Series consists of the two independent product lines M Connect and M Modular which enable the ideal light solution for all interior situations. Nine optics systems, four assembly types, four profile versions and two light colours ensure maximum flexibility.
