The Sayn Iron Works Foundry has been built in 1830 and with its airy construction of glass and iron it has become a prototype of great architecture within European industrialization. It has been rediscovered for its architectural importance as an “iron cathedral” and is now a cultural monument with elaborately restored architecture for visitors to enjoy.

Licht Kunst Licht have realized a lighting design that is exclusively using LED luminaires, leading the view from the foundry’s western façade along the path the iron once took, up to the back wall where the furnace was located. The precise and thoughtful illumination makes the Sayn Iron Works Foundry glow from within, alluding to its former utilization and giving it a warm, yet rugged, appearance.
