We are excited to announce that we are participating in the upcoming Habitare fair from 11th to 15th of September 2019. Since our last successful show in the Habitare 2018 start-up area, we have submitted our lighting system to a final round of improvement. It has now matured with an update of the electronics and […]
We are currently adding the missing big MOD-D163 arc modules. With four such modules, a complete big circle with a diameter of 1.63 meters can be assembled. These units will be available in white or natural bamboo. For each LUO module, there is now an exchangeable optical adapter available. The optics can be either light […]
We have updated and optimized the Luo-light master module. It is now symmetrical so that both ends can be used either for AC or DC connection. When the AC power wire comes from the top then LUO units can be attached on both sides of the master module. Wire channels are milled directly into the […]
Beside our digital model LUO- light library there is now also a scale model available. It is a laser cut panel with punched modules in scale 1/10. These modules can be freely arranged just like the real LUO-light elements. This scale model promises great fun and will light up every planning meeting between designer and […]
The interior design seminar at the M.A.D. premises offered us a good opportunity to present our new lighting system to designers and architects and at the same time showcase the advantages of the parametric ArchiCAD object libraries.
We are often asked why LUO is made from bamboo, after all, there is enough wood in Finland. The LUO modules are slim and have a large span width. Furthermore, the luminaire body needs accurate machining for fasteners and for the interconnection mechanism. We tested several materials from solid wood, MDF, Plywood to Bamboo. Bamboo […]
LUO is mentioned in an article in the Finnish ArchiMAD magazine (4/2018). The article explains the advantages of parametric GDL model libraries. For the designer, the libraries are convenient to equip their design with objects for the manufacturer they can be a powerful marketing tool.
We have published planning aids for designers and architects. In the new download section you will find drawings and 3D models that can be easily inserted into your projects. The ArchiCAD library offers a special chainer function for ArchiCAD users that will allow you to assemble LUO configurations on the fly. Power modules can be […]
The Habitare fair, five days of intense interaction with interested visitors, has past. The positive and often enthusiastic feedback exceeded our wildest expectations. We not only got acknowledgement but also constructive ideas how the system can be complemented and extended to serve even wider needs. We will post updates concerning those ideas very soon. Now, […]
