Berg Lighting Design
Bringing Design to Light.

Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University

The addition to the Rose Art Museum brings a minimalist aesthetic to complement both the original International Style building and its impressive collection of 20th century art. The crowning clerestory modulates both natural and artificial light to produce diffuse ambient illumination with special glass, adjustable louvers, indirect fixtures and a finely scaled louver ceiling while protecting the artwork with filtering and controls. With daylight and views the composition references the idea of an artist’s studio and updates the notion of a modern art gallery.
