Aperio - Light in Movement
By Editorial Staff -

Born of the collaboration between Castaldi Lighting and architect practice A++, Aperio is an innovative lighting solution developed out of a dynamic interior lighting concept. Aperio is not just a luminaire; it’s more a luminous presence. When switched off, it is completely invisible, embedded in the walls. Once switched on, it gradually deploys light into the environment. The system comes in two versions: Aperio-Rotating, a rotating system moving between -50° and +50° around a central axis; and Aperio-Projecting, a protruding version whose swivelling lower base causes the upper section to protrude as much as 43 mm. Luminosity, movement and lighting times can be regulated in both versions to meet particular environmental requirements and incorporate them into Building Automation programmes. The 2.30 m vertical light-emitting module is a dynamic wall and environment lighting solution. By combining several modules striking scenarios can be created where lights can be switched on simultaneously on in staggered fashion. A dimmer function offers a range of light intensities. Aperio has been designed for large residential, retail and contract environments and can be housed inside 100 mm thick plasterboard partitions. Aperio is an important example of the sort of cutting-edge technological product being developed by Castaldi Lighting for its Norlight and Castaldi brands.
