The lighting design of the Ajamaja building in the heart of old Tallinn

26 January 2022

The Raqam chandelier by Masiero was selected by the designers of Meelis Press, who dealt with Interior design


The project involved the redevelopment of an old grain factory and warehouse area renovated in the last 15 years, and which is now full of loft buildings. The “Ajamaja” building (Time-House) is one of the latest renovations in the complex, curated by Meelis Press Architects. The buildings feature glass façades allowing one to see through the structure and creating some contrast between the old limestone part and the new one.

The lighting, also visible from the outside, was thus even more fundamental in the project. For that aim, the designers of Meelis Press chose the Raqam chandelier by the Italian brand Masiero as a perfect solution. Delicate as a lace, its modularity enables it to gently fall on all building floors, again in contrast with the historical limestone masonry, thus attracting the attention of passers-by. Delicate like embroidery, precious like a jewel: Raqam is a very versatile modular lighting system designed by Marc Sadler for Masiero, enabling the creation of different customizable combinations.

Seven modules with a metal core in various shapes, linear, angular, curved, covered with transparent glass available in different colours. All to be freely combined and give life to shining suspensions, spectacular cascading light coverings and many other surprising light installations. Many variations in composition and sizes, thanks to the system’s modularity, the range of finishes of the metal structure (chromed, golden, burnished) and the choice of colours for the glass (red, orange, green and transparent).
