Budapest home with copper lights

Copper plays an enlightening role in the re-design of this apartment in Budapest. Batlab architects developed the scheme, including some copper lighting that utilises copper pipework.

The common element in all of the rooms is the copper pipework that forms the lighting system. Copper, it is said, evokes memories of older times, although copper is currently very much a material favoured by designers. The lighting system is designed to concentrate the eye on a number of focal points: entrance, kitchen/cooking area, dining area, reading space and living space. The copper pipework resembles a web that weaves its way through the rooms joining the individual elements together.
