THE IDEA

THE LUMINAIRE LUO IS DESIGNED BY GERMAN ARCHITECT OLIVER WALTER WHO CHOSE FINLAND AS HIS NEW HOME TWENTY YEARS AGO WHEN HE FELL IN LOVE WITH A FINNISH ARTIST. LUO-LIGHT IS INSPIRED BY THE MIDSUMMER SKY THAT REFLECTS IN THE SURFACE OF A TRANQUIL LAKE. DURING THE SUMMER SOLSTICE THE DAYLIGHT IN FINLAND CHANGES DRAMATICALLY FROM INTENSE BRIGHTNESS AT NOON TO A WARM GOLDEN GLOW AT DUSK.

The system consists of modules that can be combined in any order to form straight lines and circles or a combination of both. LUO is made of simple but highly optimized elements crafted from bamboo. The extraordinary strength properties of this material are rigorously utilised. This results in a slim cross section and a large span width. Each module is unique with its own specific bamboo grain.

LIGHT

The system has an interconnectable, multifunctional light source that not only can be dimmed but also tuned to cast from warm to cool light depending on a desired relaxing or energizing effect. Two separate up-down light components allow to illuminate spaces in ever changing ways. For example mystic ceiling lighting and/or functional downwards illumination. The LED units use the latest generation of highly efficient Samsung mid power LEDs that can be easily replaced for future updated versions.

Optimized, harmonious and even light output with no glare. LUO uses the last generation of highly efficient Samsung mid power LEDs.

 

“IT IS OUR CONVICTION THAT LUO SHOULD BE MADE IN FINLAND WHERE IT GOT ITS INSPIRATION”

SHAPE

LUO will unleash your creativity to freely shape light in any surrounding like homes, offices, gastronomy, educational- or health facilities. The straight and curved modules can be suspended, flash mounted or attached via consoles. It is an effective opportunity for architects and interior designers to complement their design with a highly modern, robust and flexible lighting solution.

CONTROLS

LUO´s lighting control is based on wireless Bluetooth Low Energy technology which is the only mainstream and future proof low power radio technology in the world. Users can interact with the lighting depending on their individual preferences. The Casambi app for smartphones, tablets and smartwatches is one possible user interface. Besides the app, traditional wall switches and push buttons can be used as well.
