Specially developed for use in showcases, the extremely reductive and miniaturised lighting system consists of two basic elements: the actual bar, which has a diameter of 16 millimetres, and LED spotlights that can be positioned as required. As a result, a single integrated system can be used to provide both basic and accent lighting. The profile rotates around its long axis and can accommodate optics at two different heights, in which case the beam angles vary between 20 and 80 degrees. Various lenses and adapters are available for the individually dimmable miniature spotlights too, enabling the light to be directed and modified to suit the precise requirements of the individual exhibits and presentation concept. Available in a choice of three light colours, the light bar produces luminous flux of 900 lumens per metre and is suitable for both vertical and horizontal installation.
An outstanding design with very clean lines and convincing technical solutions. The miniaturised and filigree components are not just fascinating, they’re highly functional and variable as well. The magnetic pen used to dim the individual spotlights is an interesting touch.
