The Finansbank complex

About Project

In 2015, Finansbank, the young and dynamic Turkish bank group, moved to its new head offices in Levent, the business district of the European part of Istanbul. The new offices are located inside the Kristalkule complex designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners: a 35-floor tower that is now a landmark on the skyline of this part of the city thanks to its glass prism-like shape.

Right from the outdoor spaces, it is clear how the artificial lighting system, designed by JB&B Lighting design, has been used to project the contemporary spirit that distinguishes the bank's business practices.

In the square opposite the building, three Albero devices have been installed. This luminaire is an entertaining interpretation of a natural tree, designed by Enzo Eusebi. The interiors are lit with Glim Cube luminaires, especially in customer waiting areas, where an original application of the stake installation of this device has been used to attach it to the parquet floor. In the offices and meeting rooms, on the other hand, recessed Laser Blade and Laser Blade System 53 devices with a special colour temperature of 3300 K and a colour rendering index of 90 have been used.
