The Ludwig Erhard Center in Fürth is intended to serve as a museum of memory of the Federal Chancellor Ludwig Erhard, who was born in Fürth, and shows evidence of the life and work of the politician. In addition, political, historical and economic education should be made accessible to a broader public. The museum consists of the house where Erhard was born and the new building next to the Fürth town hall.
Reinhard Bauer Architects from Munich designed the building. The clear design language and geometry of the rooms is also continued in the linear lighting systems from the newly developed S36 profile series. The 8.40 m long systems are connected to one another as three-part profiles via internal linear connectors and are very stable despite their extremely compact dimensions of only 36×72 mm. Due to its ingenious design, the compact installation space allows the integration of signal amplifiers so that the entire system can be easily controlled via DALI. The suspension is carried out using special trapezoidal cable holders, which spread out to form the tapered prefabricated ceiling elements made of exposed concrete. The indirect component runs uninterrupted over the entire length in the same way as the direct light component. An opal diffuser with an internal linear prism deflects the light evenly.
