Industry Club of Japan, Tokyo, Japan


dpa were extremely proud to be selected to design the lighting for the Industry Club of Japan by Mitsubishi Jishu Sekkei Inc. The Club is located adjacent to Tokyo’s Central Station in the Marunouchi district and its geographic prominence cannot be overstated.

The Club itself has a variety of spaces used for relaxation, dining and formal events. The lighting design had to show sympathy to the interiors whilst providing appropriate light levels for the various activities and visual interest.

The exterior lighting had to be dealt with in a particularly sensitive manner due to its close proximity to the Royal Palace and the surrounding architecture. Again, an approach of exposing the architectural form whilst hiding the lighting equipment was adopted and the result has been extremely well received.
