New Work: Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra
The Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra (Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg or the OPL) is the national orchestra of Luxembourg. Its home is the Philharmonie Luxembourg, a modern concert hall in the northeastern part of Luxembourg City. Lead by music director Emmanuel Krivine, the OPL has positioned itself as a cultural ambassador of Luxembourg and, with some 100 musicians in the company, strives to be the number one orchestra in the region.
Pentagram partner Justus Oehler, who developed the identity for the Philharmonie Luxembourg in 2005, was commissioned to design the Orchestra’s new identity with the goal of making the OPL an internationally recognised brand.
The new mark is comprised of four overlapping transluscent colour rings (cyan, green, magenta and yellow), resulting in a multi-colour blossom-like symbol that forms the shape of the letter O. The identity brings a sense of energy, diversity, fun and passion to the OPL brand.
Oehler’s Berlin Team will be implementing the recently launched design across all media, including stationery items, programme leaflets, brochures and posters.
Project Team: Justus Oehler, partner-in-charge and designer; Tanja Büsching, designer.
