8 Jul 2019
"LichtBox" by Gera Leuchten
For the lighting of and in furniture, there are increasingly minimalist solutions today. There is a demand for luminaires and lighting systems that take up little space and blend discreetly into the furnishing concept.
New mini profiles
During Interzum, German company Elektra highlights three new mini profiles which correspond to the current philosophy of miniaturization. The purist appearance of the profiles are included into the furniture nearly imperceptible. The consistent 4-pole connecting system offers the use of the different control systems like sensor switch, remote control, Bluetooth control or voice control individually. For the professional shop fitting a flexible system for invisible electrification of standard shelf system is presented.
The new pluggable Gallery LED light strip from DWD Concepts also offers a variety of uses on shelves or on furniture - and this with a very high colour rendering. Plug connectors and connections as well as the different holding clips allow a quick and easy installation of the light strip. The company FitArt has also developed an innovative solution for lighting shelves. The Ghost system is a patented system which, through the thickness of the panel, supplies the power to the movable shelves complete with lighting, installed on NB system. The electric power, transmitted by an electromagnet, is controlled and protected by an electronic board. The racks do not need electrification.
Variable lighting technology
Minimalist design with innovative LED color changing technology combines the new tube light by CHF Lichttechnik GmbH. The round mirror luminaire was awarded the interzum award 2019. With black or white profiles, the tube lights are available in different variants. The spectrum ranges from classic surface-mounted luminaires to a complete framing of the mirror.
At interzum 2019, the exhibitors Frerichs Glas and Hansen presented an extremely flat light body, which is also suitable for harsher environments. "Cleverglas" is an LED area light in combination with durable safety glass, which emerged from a cooperation between the two companies. Minimalism is an aspect that all of the products in the portfolio of Gera Leuchten have in common. The new "LichtBox" from the manufacturer is based on the minimalist structure of the company's Lighting System 4: a rectangular black aluminium profile frame with integrated LED lights at the front and at the back – fully in line with the new restraint in furniture lighting.
