Osram wins order in Germany’s financial hub

Just in time for its stock market debut, Osram will create a lighting highlight in the financial district of Frankfurt by equipping the new TaunusTurm high-rise tower with more than 12,000 indoor luminaires. Osram is providing a variety of LED luminaires on behalf of the construction company Ed. Züblin AG that feature an absolute homogeneous light and very flat construction designs. They are also more energy-efficient compared to models with classic fluorescent light sources. The luminaires are now being installed successively.

The office tower with a height of 170 meters is currently being built in Frankfurt, and when completed, will have around 60,000 square meters of office space distributed across 40 storeys. The first rooms are going to be occupied later this year. The developers of the complex are Tishman Speyer and Commerz Real, a unit of Commerzbank AG. Züblin holds responsibility for the construction as the general contractor.

“Like Osram, Tishman Speyer puts a special emphasis on sustainability as well as on design”, said Christian Schraft, head of the Luminaires (LUM) business unit at Osram. "Our LED luminaires will highly contribute to this and at the same time also provide pleasant light."

Osram’s management will visit the Frankfurt stock exchange at the day of the company’s planned July 8 stock market debut. The city is also a special location for the lighting industry as it is hosting the world’s largest lighting fair, Light+Building, every two years. Stunning Osram technology can also be seen at the well-known exterior facade of the ESPRIT flagship store at Frankfurt’s shopping boulevard Zeil.
