The emotional effects of light
With integral lighting solutions, Zumtobel creates lighting scenes which enable people to experience the interplay of light and architecture in all its diversity. Light unfolds its special creative power in an interplay with space and architecture. The combined use of luminaires, lighting management and emergency lighting systems corresponds to the architecture of a building and is matched to the application. It is the perfect combination of optimum lighting quality, technological innovation and design which makes the difference in creative power and added value of light.
Light creates a sense of well-being
To provide people with optimum lighting quality, Zumtobel explores the beneficial effects of light on health, continuously improving its utilisability. In this respect, the consumption of energy required for lighting has to be considered, too. The concept of balance between light for enhanced well-being and optimum energy efficiency adjusts the equilibrium between the two aspects within a lighting system: human light + energy efficiency = “Humanergy Balance”.
Use of new technologies
Providing people with optimum lighting quality, whatever they do – Zumtobel is striving to achieve this goal, utilising all technical options available. Zumtobel is able to quickly turn new technologies such as waveguide, micropyramidal structure and LED into high-quality products, systems and sophisticated lighting concepts. In applied research, particular emphasis is placed on energy efficiency. At identical conditions in terms of light sources, daylight-based lighting control and luminaires with increased light output ratio provide more light and increased brightness than standard solutions.
