    DALEC – concept analysis tool for integral lighting design

    What will be the total energy requirements of the building? For financial planning purposes, a building operator needs an answer to this question even before the construction work begins.
    More informationLess information
    Until now, no tool has been available on the market which can quickly calculate a building's energy requirements already at an early design stage, taking into account various influencing factors such as the interaction of daylight and artificial lighting as well as the impact on heating and cooling requirements.

    In the context of the DALEC (Day and Artificial Light with Energy Calculation) research project, which is implemented by Zumtobel in collaboration with Bartenbach and the University of Innsbruck, such a concept analysis program for integral lighting design is currently being developed. A prototype is already available.

    Emergency lighting for all eventualities: RESCLITE high performance

    Some countries specify higher illuminance levels in their national standards than those required by the European EN 1838 standard. Italy, for instance, prescribes 5 lx for escape-route lighting; the regions in the Middle East and North Africa and the USA even require 10.76 lx / 1 foot-candle.
    More informationLess information
    RESCLITE high performance is currently the only emergency luminaire available on the market which meets these requirements. For the 1 lx standard application, even spacings of up to 35 m between luminaires can be achieved. Both the escape-route luminaire and the anti-panic luminaire were fitted with new lenses: thanks to the anti-panic luminaire's rectangular light distribution, rooms can be perfectly lit, even in corners. The escape-route luminaire's attractive design without any reflector cannot fail to impress.

    Exhibition "Living the Nordic Light" in Berlin

    After 16 years, Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin is again dedicating an exhibition to the now internationally acclaimed architecture and design studio, Snøhetta.
    More informationLess information
    With its main offices in Oslo and New York, the firm has become a key protagonist in the international architecture and design discourse. Projects such as the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, the entrance pavilion of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York, USA, the Lascaux IV Caves Museum in Montignac, France, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Alexandria, Egypt, and the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, demonstrate Snøhetta’s sensitivity to the reciprocal relationship between structural shapes and the immediate environment. In their small-scale projects Snøhetta has likewise proven its talent in negotiating landscapes and cultural spaces. Their approach is aptly reflected in the firm’s name, taken from a mountain in Norway.

    It thus seems consistent in both content and form that for their research project “Living the Nordic Light” Snøhetta examines themselves as well. In a way that is exceptional for architects, they not only reflect their own cultural origins, but also explore the dynamics between space, landscape, architecture, and people—one of the central recurring themes that Aedes addresses with its program. Furthermore, in doing so, they expand upon the ways in which architects relate to their profession today.

    Invited by Zumtobel Group AG to design its annual report for 2013/14, Snøhetta devised a unique conceptual framework within which they created “Living the Nordic Light”, an extraordinary, profound, and poignant research, artistic, and cultural project that formed the basis for the development of the exhibition.

    Together with artists, writers, and research institutions, Snøhetta investigated the relationships between natural light, people, and habitat in the northern region of their home country Norway, which due to its geographical location is exposed to extreme lighting conditions in different seasons and times of the day. The project features portraits of four centenarian Norwegians and Swedes, who recount their lives north of the Arctic Circle. With his close-up facial portraits of them, Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø succeeds in revealing the physical effects as well. Subjective experiences are presented alongside scientific observations and cultural artifacts documenting Norwegian social life and everyday culture over the last century. In addition to showcasing the photographs by Sølve Sundsbø, this exhibition offers insight into Snøhetta’s investigation through real-time observations, essays, and photographs.

    The exhibition “Living the Nordic Light” and the parallel show "Nightscape 2050 - A dialogue between Cities, Light, People on the Future" by LPA Lighting Planners Associates from Tokyo and Singapore are the contributions by Aedes to the United Nations “International Year of Light 2015.”

    Location: Aedes am Pfefferberg, Christinenstr. 18-19, 10119 Berlin
    Duration: 8 August – 1 October 2015
    Opening: Friday, 7 August 2015, 6:30 pm

    Review of the Year of Light event held in Dornbirn

    On the occasion of the International Year of Light, a top-level event was held by the Zumtobel Group on 9 and 10 April 2015. Some 900 visitors in Bregenz and Dornbirn attended exciting presentations on the topics of light and art, urban development, brain research and IoT – the Internet of Things. In addition, the latest product innovations were presented and guided tours to current architectural projects were offered.
    More informationLess information
    For two days, the focus was all on light and lighting for the approx. 900 visitors attending the Year of Light event held at the Bregenz Festspielhaus and the Zumtobel Group headquarters in Dornbirn. Beside the International Year of Light declared by the United Nations, there were two more reasons to celebrate: Zumtobel's 65-year anniversary and ten years of the Dornbirn Light Forum.

    "Light is life"
    "Light is life" was the title of the opening address held by Olafur Eliasson at the Bregenz Festspielhaus. In his impressive presentation he demonstrated what light means for people and for himself, putting it in the context of his work. He also talked about his many years of collaboration with Zumtobel.

    This was followed by a presentation dealing with the cities in the south: Hubert Klumpner, co-founder of the Caracas-based Urban-Think Tank (U-TT) architectural studio and lecturer at the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich, talked about the manifold challenges urban planners have to face and pointed out potential solutions for making life in cities worth living. Among others he mentioned the Vertical Gym, which came in second place at the 2014 Zumtobel Group Award.

    Next came the neuromarketing experts from Gruppe Nymphenburg, Dr. Hans-Georg Häusel and Bernd T. Werner, who explained how the human brain works, what is meant by Limbic© Lighting, and how it can be used to activate target groups in shops, thus boosting sales.

    In his presentation entitled "The Internet of Things (IoT) and Lighting beyond Light", Karl Jónsson, Tridonic's IoT architect, talked about the technological options of networking and its impact on light and individuals.

    Zumtobel Group Award winners
    The gala dinner in the evening focussed on the Zumtobel Group Awards. Hans-Jürgen Commerell from the Berlin-based AEDES Architecture Forum and curator of the Zumtobel Group Award, jointly with Astrid Kühn from the Zumtobel Group, presented the winners of the 2014 Zumtobel Group Award.

    World prèmiere of the new Zumtobel highlights on Friday
    On Friday, the new Hall 7 and the Light Forum at the Zumtobel Group headquarters saw the world prèmiere of the new generations of the Zumtobel product ranges of SUPERSYSTEM, TECTON and SLOTLIGHT infinity on a floor space of more than 1600 square metres. Product innovations of the Thorn and Tridonic brands were also introduced.

    In addition to guided tours of the lighting laboratory and the plant, architectural tours were available on both days. Guests were given the opportunity to visit the new Montforthaus in Feldkirch, the innovative building 2226 in Lustenau and the Kunsthaus in Bregenz.

    LIGHT IN TIME – Biological light for keeping track of time

    Various chronotypes, different daily routines and a variety of locations for work and leisure-time place individual requirements on biologically effective lighting solutions. The following technical paper tells you how light can make a contribution to bringing some kind of order into these varied time-based parameters.
    More informationLess information
    An integral approach to the effect of lighting – visually, emotionally, biologically!
    The most popular office workstations are close to windows, despite potential glare through sunlight. It is near windows that the highest illuminance levels are available for visual tasks (visual lighting effect). An unimpeded view out of the building can enhance people's mood. Moreover, dynamic daylight ensures variation (emotional lighting effect). Our circadian rhythm, our timing system, is stabilised to optimum effect by natural lighting conditions and high light exposure levels close to windows (biological lighting effect).

    Lighting design for workstations is traditionally based on levels specified in applicable standards, which usually refer to visual and in part also to emotional aspects. The DIN SPEC 67600 standard (04/2013) includes valuable new design recommendations for biologically effective lighting. Here, the factor of time plays a highly decisive role for the first time. Daylight is the most important timer for people's circadian rhythm and has always determined our phases of activity and regeneration – above all before artificial lighting became available in large quantities. The eye is not only the visual sense's central organ. Moreover, the eye with its circadian photoreceptors situated on the retina also acts as an interface for keeping track of time. Information is forwarded to the brain, more precisely to the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) which is considered the central pacemaker of the timing system. Via subsequent physiological processes such as hormonal control, this system fulfils the primary timing function. In addition to daylight, artificial lighting can influence stimulation and a good night's sleep – hence also people's well-being and health.

    LIGHT IN TIME – An analysis of nature and people over the course of time
    The time-dependent factors influencing artificial lighting are based on natural geographic and meteorological conditions: changes in incident daylight over the course of a year and underlying weather-based fluctuations. When designing LIGHT IN TIME lighting solutions, the focus is primarily on the individual. Various chronotypes, different schedules and a variety of locations for work and leisure-time place individual requirements on biologically effective lighting solutions. Light can make a contribution to bringing some kind of order into these varied time-based parameters.


    LIGHT IN TIME – An analysis of nature and people over the course of time

    In the integral approach for biologically effective lighting solutions, the focus is on the individual. Artificial lighting has been adjusted according to daylight conditions, allows users to choose individual settings and takes the emotional lighting effect into account.

    The pioneers: new technologies and scientific findings
    For the first time, the DIN SPEC 67600:2013-04 standard prepared by experts of various technical disciplines includes specific design recommendations for biologically effective lighting. Thus, innovative technological options and current research findings have been combined. The circadian photoreceptors on the retina are addressed to optimum effect via high intensity levels of the bluish spectral component. However, they must be stimulated within an appropriate time frame. Then reduced reddish light is once again used for the transition to regenerative phases. This necessary change in spectral distributions combined with appropriate illuminance levels is supported by LED technology featuring » tunableWhite to optimum effect. Yet, the biological effects of light should not be reduced to the subject of light colour. The impacts of a variety of design approaches to the circadian system are too complex (see table from the DIN SPEC 67600 standard). 

    Extract from DIN SPEC 67600:2013-04

    More intense biological effects of light are produced by Less intense biological effects of light are produced by
    Higher level of radiation Lower level of radiation
    Longer duration of exposure Shorter duration of exposure
    Higher level of blue components Lower level of blue components
    Wide-area lighting Pinpoint lighting
    Dynamic changes in lighting Constant lighting
    Lower level of radiation before the light exposure under review*  
    Morning light is most effective for synchronising the body clock Light in the afternoon affects the body clock to a relatively low extent
       
    * Persons who have been adjusted to darkness for an extended period before being exposed to light will be more sensitive to light and show a stronger response

    LIGHT IN TIME primarily follows nature and the individual
    What to keep in mind when implementing LIGHT IN TIME lighting solutions:

    1) Artificial lighting should follow the natural course of daylight as closely as possible and be used only in addition to daylight.

    2) Lighting solutions where users are able to adjust lighting conditions individually enjoy a high level of acceptance by users. One of the main consequences of the impact LIGHT IN TIME solutions have on physiological functions is that individual control options must be provided. Hence, people's needs are taken into account and manipulative actions are avoided.

    3) The integral approach on lighting effects is essential: it is mainly the emotional and biological effects that are included in the design approach in a well-balanced manner.
    LIGHT IN TIME primarily follows nature and the individual

    Source: Zumtobel Research, Fraunhofer IAO: Global User Study on Lighting Quality Perceived in Offices.

    Example: On the one hand, the right amount of light in an intense bluish light colour at the right time has a biologically supporting effect. On the other hand, many people perceive a high blue component as unattractive or even annoying, depending on individual preferences, weather conditions or visual and/or space-defining tasks (see illustration).

    Last but not least: optimised LIGHT IN TIME concepts for stabilising the timing system do not start and end at the reception desk of the office building. They continue in people's private living spaces and during leisure-time activities. For instance, doing sports in daylight has a stabilising effect and promotes a sound sleep, whereas extensive exposure to electronic screens in the evening is counterproductive. LIGHT IN TIME is based on a specifically designed sequence of light and darkness over a period of 24 hours – there is a time for everything!

    Three products won Good Design Awards

    As many as three products by Zumtobel managed to impress the jury of the renowned Good Design Award.
    More informationLess information
    From more than 700 entries from 36 countries, a jury based in New York and Los Angeles selected the most outstanding product designs to receive a Good Design Award. As many as three products by Zumtobel – the VIVO XS LED spotlight, the modular INTRO LED lighting system and the LIGHT FIELDS evolution LED luminaire range – won the coveted Good Design Award 2014 for their design and their lighting quality.

    VIVO XS LED spotlight
    With its compact diameter of just 65 mm, VIVO XS is the smallest commercially available spotlight for powerful retail lighting (up to 1,000 lm) and is therefore ideally suitable for illuminating relatively small retail premises. The smallest model in the VIVO product range owes its tiny dimensions to an innovative combination of passive cooling and a compact LED optic. Despite its reduced dimensions, it is big when it comes to lighting quality: the spotlight stands out thanks to its high colour rendering index (Ra > 90) and highly effective light distribution which provides high luminance levels.

    INTRO LED lighting system
    The INTRO lighting system offers retailers an efficient lighting solution that can be fully customised to cater for various areas of a store: from shop windows, shelves and recesses through to activity spaces – INTRO can be used in any area. The system is based on spotlight modules that can be aligned flexibly and even be combined in various light colours or beam angles, depending on the lighting task. Lighting modules separated from the mounting frame provide designers and architects with plenty of creative scope.

    By developing liteCarve® reflector technology, Zumtobel has mastered a challenge that has presented a problem so far: balanced rectangular light distribution by means of a freeform reflector. Based on a point light source, the reflector directs 100 % of the light indirectly and in a targeted manner, thus allowing for illumination of vertical surfaces, shelves and displays.

    LIGHT FIELDS evolution LED luminaire range
    A design revolution has been made possible by integrating light-emitting diodes into the frame of the LIGHT FIELDS evolution luminaire. The low-profile lighting module accomplishes demanding lighting projects in a consistent design language with effortless ease. From recessed and surface-mounted through to free-standing or pendant luminaires: each luminaire incorporates a specifically developed brilliant MPO+ micro-pyramidal optic that meets all exacting visual requirements at the workplace. 

    This optic is precisely tuned to suit the distribution characteristics of the LED lighting points, and guarantees glare-free light (UGR < 19 and L65 < 1500 cd/m²) as well as highly diffuse light distribution. This makes reflected glare on notebooks and tablets a thing of the past. Thanks to tunableWhite technology, users can adjust the colour temperature of the LIGHT FIELDS evolution LED luminaire range continuously between 3000 K and 6000 K.

    Design: Chris Redfern, Sottsass Associati
