Zumtobel Light+Building stand will showcase a city of light

March 3, 2010
Date Announced: 03 Mar 2010 At light+building 2010, world’s biggest lighting trade fair in Frankfurt from 11-16 April, Zumtobel will present trend-setting initiatives and custom lighting concepts for all areas of application.With numerous initiatives and product innovations, Zumtobel will again set new standards in terms of quality and energy efficiency. For instance, with effect from 1 April 2010, Zumtobel will supply all luminaires with a five-year guarantee, thus emphasising its claim to be the leading manufacturer of design-oriented luminaires with utmost technical and practical value.At Zumtobel’s 650 m² trade-fair stand in the Festhalle, visitors can stroll through a city of light fascinating them with lighting solutions in line with the motto “LEDs control light”. The core of the trade-fair stand will be the Future Cube which allows a glimpse into the future of building design. In collaboration with leading manufacturers, masterminded by renowned architect Stefan Behnisch, Zumtobel carried out a study on future developments with the aim of providing key stimuli for the integral design of buildings offering advantages in terms of economy, ergonomics and energy efficiency. Visitors to the Future Cube will be impressed by a concept study for an OLED luminaire series devised by the US-based design studio Continuum. The wide-area light distribution provided by organic LEDs offers a whole new range of creative options for designers and planners. With this luminaire range, Zumtobel wants to demonstrate a new approach to this new generation of light sources that can be implemented even today.Martin Brandt, COO of Zumtobel AG, expects the trade fair to have positive effects: “Thanks to Zumtobel’s superior design standards, we are the partner for lighting solutions that are not influenced by short-lived trends. By extending our product guarantee to five years, we put special emphasis on our long-term thinking to the benefit of our customers; we are the first company in the luminaire industry to pass on the benefit of these high quality standards to our customers. At the same time we show LED lighting solutions for all application areas that are fit for the future and illustrate the wide range of options these new light sources offer in terms of technical and design perfection.”HighlightsThe Zumtobel brand stands for the perfect combination of innovation, design and technology. In order to allow more intense networking and exchange of ideas among architects, designers and planners, Zumtobel will host a Designers’ Breakfast on a daily basis. Renowned designers such as Harald Gründl, James Irvine, Christopher Redfern, Nik Schweiger or Titus Bernhard will talk about their latest product developments and ideas in an informal setting at the Zumtobel stand. This year’s product highlights reflect the increased importance of resource-saving developments and high-quality LED technology. Thanks to its professional competence, Zumtobel is able to rely on a combination of high-quality LED chips, modules, a top-rate cooling system and excellent reflector technology to use the opportunities offered by the new technology to optimum efficiency. The new generation of Mellow Light luminaires demonstrates unrivalled efficiency in an impressive design: the rather soft design features created by designer James Irvine were combined with uncompromising lighting technology. Thus, it was possible to increase the ML V’s light output ratio to a sensational 87%, which corresponds to a system efficiency of 69 lumens per watt. The luminaire is available as an LED version and with fluorescent lamp technology.In collaboration with the EOOS designer trio, Zumtobel developed a fascinating spotlight concept where the LED’s benefits and technical features have been translated into perfect design. The design follows LED requirements: thanks to its flat, low-profile design, the spotlight – the first to be especially designed for LED technology – blends perfectly into all kinds of architecture. The cooling system, which is indispensable for LEDs, has been turned into a visible design element which gives the spotlight a futuristic touch. At the same time, LED technology allows a dramatic reduction in size, so that the Discus spotlight boasts a height of just 28 mm. Discus is available as track and ceiling-recessed spotlight incorporating LED technology, as well as for compact HIT lamps. More than ten years ago, the Panos downlight range was developed by the Sottsass design studio, which laid the foundations for one of the most comprehensive and successful downlight ranges available on the market. Now the luminaire range has been adapted to the age of LED lighting by Christopher Redfern. Thanks to minimalist design and a system efficiency of up to 68 lumens per watt, high-quality LED technology has by now outcompeted the traditional compact fluorescent lamps in terms of efficiency and lighting quality. The modular structure of the new Panos Infinity LED downlight range is the contemporary response to the requirements for a responsible management of resources.
