Recently completed Wolverine Worldwide Headquarters has more than just some fresh kicks to show off. As a global leader of branded footwear, their new office design embraces the company’s mission and puts shoelaces on interior surfaces instead of their sneakers!
The design team used shoelaces to emanate a glow that can be seen from afar. At 37% below energy code and LEED Gold certified, single rows of linear wall grazers bring out the texture and appearance of the shoelaces. A full-scale mock-up of the shoelace design was vital to a successful lighting design solution – grazing. The entire design team felt very strongly about this solution as a driving design feature, and is proof of the importance of a proper lighting design.
