Solar panels are becoming a popular way to generate energy for homes, offices, and other buildings. However, the way energy is distributed within buildings is typically AC-based, while many devices and lighting systems run on DC power. As a result, the energy from solar panels must be converted from DC to AC and then back […]
Besides free design services for our regular LUO-light customers we now additionally offer luminaire design services for manufacturers. Our objective is to think out of the box and constantly re-examine common perceptions of what lighting actually is. Intuitive user interaction with light is another point of interest. All the while we commit to respecting sustainability […]
Our ArchiCAD library has now photometric light distribution based on accurate laboratory measurements. This is exciting news because planners will now be able to adjust and render LUO-light´´ s accurate light phenomenon in their projects. Deep gratitude to the GDL department at M.A.D. Helsinki for their programming.
Jätkä is a wooden luminaire that has an optical turning mechanism on its top. Similar to a pepper mill its head with an eccentrically placed COB LED can be rotated. By doing so the light beam is widened or narrowed. At the same time, the LED moves over a translucent sheet that dims the light. […]
“You can sell more lights if they have a shorter life span” this is a comment that I receive now and then when I express my conviction that products should last as long as only technically possible. Our system is also modular within each element. There is no encapsulated light source or inextricable bonds. All […]
Due to its polarity neutral connectors, LUOlight´´´´ s table version switches direction easily. With the same components, two different-looking luminaires can be assembled. Of course, the table version has the same overall functionality as the suspended system, opposite light directions, and Bluetooth adjustable variable color temperature.
Our LUOlight system has optical adapters that change the light distribution from wide-spreading and even to more limited and focused lighting. The adapters allow being combined for decorative purposes. This can create interesting combinations. They are attached by a simple push clip system. The diffuser is made from satin acrylics and the focused adapter is […]
Pare is a thin foldable luminaire made from airplane veneer. It is inspired by wooden shingles that in old times were clipped to the wall on metal brackets. Ignited they would give light for ca 15 minutes. Pare has a thin LED matrix panel as a light source. The special feature is our patented electricity […]
The LUOlight system has various optical adapters that change the light distribution from wide-spreading to more focused light. In fact, the adapters allow being combined and mixed for decorative purposes which creates the most interesting blendings. The adapters can simply be clipped on the bamboo case on the fly.
To our lighting system belong several optical adapters that influence the light output. Push clips allow exchanging the optical adapters on the fly. The adapters allow these lighting aspects: even & wide-spreading light (diffuser optic) bundled light (lens optic) sharpened light beams (slit optic) This video illustrates the principles.
