Zumtobel – has everything you need for the perfectly lit Workspace
The work environment can impact on a person’s performance in a number of different ways from effects that damage health, to effects that reduce the individual’s ability to perform a task. When considering lighting, a number of factors need to be taken into consideration such as colour, contrast, glare and more. Zumtobel’s luminaires have played an important role in prestigious, high specification office projects across the world by catering to all the lighting needs for the modern day tenant, including the flexibility to customise and upgrade existing fixtures in the future.
Zumtobel’s luminaires are developed for designs that allow for spaces where there are opportunities for common lighting to support circadian rhythms and to give people the flexibility to individualise their personal environment enabling them to be at their most productive.
Recent installations highlight some of the luminaires chosen specifically to provide the perfect lighting for the office environment.
The prestigious Blue Fin Building in London, illuminated with Zumtobel’s SLOTLIGHT infinity, ensures a high quality lighting solution with low total cost of ownership for the Cat A office refurbishment. The luminaires were chosen for their ability to address the exacting design criteria and provide maximum flexibility. The SLOTLIGHT infinity linear product family offers nearly unlimited options in straight lines and around corners. Unmatched, consistent light quality with end-to-end illumination is available in one modular solution to fulfill every advanced lighting design requirement.
The SLOTLIGHT infinity range has an opal optic and a continuous diffuser that can be supplied up to 20 metres long, making it possible to create a seamless, continuous-row system without any shadows or overlapping. A uniform appearance is ensured by prefabricated frames and spacers, whilst the separation of luminaire body and frame allows installers or drywall builders to perfectly integrate the continuous-row system in suspended ceilings to a consistent light line.
TECTON, the world’s first continuous row lighting system, has also become popular for office applications, particularly as it is also available in black silver or white. The TECTON compact and versatile uniform lighting solution allows for all functions such as power supply, lighting control and connection with emergency lighting to be quickly installed and seamlessly integrated into the multifunctional trunking system. The TECTON range also allows for a variety of lighting requirements and luminaire positions to be changed to suit structural alterations in the future such as replacement or additional luminaire requirements, light sources or optics.
To negate the problem of no ceilings at The Verse Building in London, an office building that provides 26,000ft² GIA of Cat-A office space, Zumtobel came up with a clever solution involving the use of ONDARA luminaires mounted on TECTON. Emergency lighting throughout the office spaces is provided by Zumtobel’s RESCLITE small, energy-efficient LED spotlights mounted on the TECTON trunking, highlighting the versatility of TECTON.
Zumtobel successfully adhered to a complicated brief to supply luminaires in keeping with the interior of Grade II* listed Bracken House, London to improve the workspace lighting and create 200,000 sq. ft. of Grade A office accommodation. A custom office lighting solution was developed that included PANOS infinity canisters to provide decorative highlights and add an elegant and highly sophisticated look to the new offices in which the ceiling levels have been raised to improve the floor to ceiling heights. PANOS infinity delivers unrivalled, high-quality lighting performance and an efficacy of up to 123 lm/W with a complete range of downlight, wall wash, adjustable and accent recessed luminaires. For added elegance and atmosphere, PANOS infinity, available in both surface-mounted and pendant versions, is the ideal solution, fusing simple form, high-quality light and sophisticated technology in a slim cylindrical aluminum housing.
Ultimately Zumtobel’s customising solutions enable lighting specifiers to be more creative and to achieve better solutions that meet the client’s aesthetic, energy-efficiency and lifecycle requirements, providing the perfect personal work space.
