    Zumtobel sponsors the exhibition « Le mobilier d’architectes, 1960 – 2020 » at the Cité de l’Architecture & du Patrimoine in Paris

    Zaha Hadid's VorteXX chandelier is on display at the Cité de l'Architecture & du Patrimoine in Paris from 29 May 2019 to 30 September 2019. The exhibition "Le mobilier d’architectes, 1960 – 2020" aims to explore how architects fit into the decorative arts through the design of architectural furniture, objects and luminaires. The opening will take place on 28 May 2019 at 18:00 in the presence of Franck Riester, France’s Minister of Culture.

    For 150 years, architects have been designing furniture and luminaires to complete their constructions, but unlike the furniture of the Viennese Secession, Art Deco, Bauhaus or Modern movements, the architects' furniture from the 1960s to the present day has not been studied much.
    Through prototypes, unique pieces, limited editions or large series, the exhibition invites visitors to discover the furniture production of architects from 1959 to the present day.

    VorteXX
    Zumtobel implemented the VorteXX lighting sculpture in collaboration with Sawaya & Moroni, following an idea developed jointly by architects Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher. VorteXX is a perfect symbiosis of organic lines and a surprisingly dynamic modulation of light colours. This impressive design is based on the vision of an infinite ribbon of light. Its charismatically curved outlines remind the beholder of a double helix and seem like a continuously flowing form – weightless, impulsive and radiant.

    Zumtobel Group redesigns customer centre in Switzerland

    On the evening of 27 March 2019, the Zumtobel Group opened the redesigned Light Centre in Zurich covering an area of 740 square metres. Around 200 guests attended the official opening in Thurgauerstrasse 39. The conceptual redesign of the Zurich Light Centre has created a future-oriented customer platform which conveys the experience of light in its various applications and underlines the extensive lighting expertise of the Zumtobel Group and its brands.

    „Wir freuen uns sehr, für unsere Kunden mit dem neuen Lichtzentrum Zürich eine zukunftsorientierte Plattform geschaffen zu haben, die von Licht bis hin zu IoT-Lösungen alles zeigt. Die finalen Räumlichkeiten begeistern und laden ein, gemeinsam mit unseren Kunden Lichtlösungen zu diskutieren und zu gestalten. Es ist ein Ort, an dem Licht erlebt werden kann und es ist uns enorm wichtig, dass wir unseren Kunden dieses Licht-Erlebnis vermitteln können“, so Marc-André Rusch, Geschäftsleitung Zumtobel Schweiz.

    Präsentation SUPERSYSTEM integral collection mit EOOS-Designer Harald Gründl
    Anlässlich der Eröffnung präsentierte EOOS-Designer Harald Gründl aus Wien, Österreich, die neue Zumtobel-Produkt-Kollektion SUPERSYSTEM integral collection mittels eigens dafür entworfenen Wandreliefs, die als Ausstellungsstücke im neuen Lichtzentrum verbleiben. Die von EOOS entworfene SUPERSYSTEM integral collection von Zumtobel gibt Lichtplanern ein Werkzeug für exzellente Lichttechnik an die Hand, darauf ausgerichtet, die Lichtquelle nahezu unsichtbar zu machen.

    Faszination Licht
    In den neuen Räumlichkeiten zeigt die Zumtobel Group das breite Produktportfolio und die Kompetenz der Marken Zumtobel (Indoor) sowie Thorn und Hess (Outdoor): Licht für spezifische Anwendungen, professionelle Lichtlösungen und die dazugehörigen Services. Die neue Art der Produktpräsentation in Kuben setzt besondere räumliche Akzente und gliedert sich nach Anwendungsbereichen. Eine völlig neue Möglichkeit in der Interaktion mit dem Kunden bietet der flexibel bespielbare Teil des Lichtzentrums, in dem kundenspezifische Lichtlösungen für Industrie und Büro variabel präsentiert werden können.

    Besonderes Glanzstück in der Ausstellung ist das Zumtobel Masterpiece des US-amerikanischen Stararchitekten Daniel Libeskind, das hinter der Glasfassade schon von außen sichtbar ist.

    Wie in allen Zumtobel Lichtzentren bilden der Licht-Erlebnisraum (Faszinosum) und die Brand-Wall ein eindrucksvolles Entree und lassen den Besucher gleich zu Beginn der Faszination des Lichts folgen. Im Licht-Erlebnisraum wird Licht als Werkstoff und reine Materie markenneutral gezeigt.

    Einladendes Raumkonzept
    Mit der Renovierung wurde der Inhalt des seit 1999 existenten Lichtzentrums – damals von Lichtkünstler James Turrell eröffnet – neu aufgesetzt. Grundidee des neuen Lichtzentrums in Zürich ist ein offener und in Teilen flexibel bespielbarer Raum, dessen unterschiedliche Themenbereiche die Nutzer dazu einladen, sich auszutauschen und zu vernetzen. Das neue Lichtzentrum ist für Kunden und Mitarbeiter eine lebendige und dynamische Begegnungszone – ein Ort der Inspiration, der zugleich Raum zur Präsentation der neuesten Produkt- und Systeminnovationen sowie smarter Lichtlösungen bietet.

    Die Idee der Zumtobel Lichtzentren entstand vor mehr als 25 Jahren aus dem Gedanken heraus, einen Ort zu schaffen, an dem das beste Licht für eine bestimmte Anwendung erlebbar wird – dieser Unternehmensphilosophie folgt auch das neue Lichtzentrum in Zürich.

    Light as the silent assistant in schools, offices and seminar rooms

    For most people, light is not something we actively think about: It’s outside of our sphere of consciousness, something that is just there, in all of its diverse forms. However, light is an off-stage presence that plays an important role in our day-to-day lives. When used in the right way, it promotes creativity, makes a reading corner comfortable and cosy, or helps you to keep your focus during the mid-afternoon slump.

    With their outstanding glare suppression, MIREL evolution recessed ceiling lights by Zumtobel deliver uniform lighting across any room.

    University partnerships

    Light is an important component of architectural design. In fact, it’s the one component that truly defines a room, setting the mood and creating a specific atmosphere. We want to share this message far and wide, so Zumtobel actively seeks out opportunities to engage with young architects and designers to highlight the relevance of light to the planners of our future buildings and environments at an early stage in their careers.

    In teaching or advisory roles, employees from Zumtobel support educational institutions such as the technical universities in Graz, Darmstadt and Liechtenstein. At the renowned Central Saint Martins University of the Arts in London, Zumtobel recently collaborated with students, experts and architectural studios on an innovation research project. At the end of the project, the top five students selected from the group of 60 were invited by Zumtobel to visit its headquarters in Dornbirn – for a meeting that would benefit both sides.
