In close cooperation with Graft Architects, Zumtobel has developed a decorative task luminaire that impressively combines elegance and lightness: Caela LED. However, it is not only its sophisticated appearance but also its modular design and versatility that make Caela especially attractive. Thanks to maximum efficiency and innovative light distribution, the luminaire range is suited to solve a vast variety of lighting tasks.
Dornbirn, March 2016 – The new Caela LED luminaire range by Zumtobel and Graft Architects meets the highest demands as a decorative task luminaire both in terms of functional lighting and attractive design. The design philosophy of the luminaire is based on the desire to elevate not only the luminaire itself but also the effects of light in a room to a design item. With CAELA this has been achieved in an impressive way. The LED luminaire range boasts an innovative, flat design and two different kinds of light distribution.
As a wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted and pendant luminaire, Caela appears extremely slim and elegant, with a maximum depth of 55 mm. The pared-down stylistic idiom is emphasised by the diffuse cover. Caela is available as a round or square luminaire with a diameter or side length of 330 mm and 430 mm and in the colours white, matt silver, copper, brass, matt grey and black. In these versions, Caela serves to decorate corridors and entrance areas in administration buildings as well as restaurants, offices and private domestic areas. The luminaire's modular design is continued in the choice of switchable and dimmable models, with a luminous flux of 1000 and 1500 lm, as well as its light distribution: in addition to symmetrical standard light distribution, the square version of the wall-mounted luminaire also features innovative asymmetrical light distribution specifically geared to meet the lighting requirements in corridors and staircases. The light is precisely directed onto the floor, thus avoiding spill light towards the ceiling while the floors and walls are lit uniformly.
For additional energy efficiency, the Caela LED luminaire can easily be integrated into a lighting management system. Emergency lighting can be implemented with this luminaire in the same manner. Therefore, Caela is more than a decorative highlight; it also meets the highest demands on integral lighting solutions: it can be intelligently and individually adjusted to various lighting tasks, boasts maximum efficiency, and gives architects and lighting designers creative scope corresponding to the zeitgeist.
