With its state-of-the-art LED technology and sophisticated design, the CARDAN evolution architectural downlight from Zumtobel offers a new approach to cardanic accent lighting.
Cardanic solutions have often been plagued by the problem of self-illumination caused by light being directed towards the fitting itself. CARDAN evolution incorporates an asymmetric housing to prevent or minimise this issue, enabling the full efficiency of the lighting technology to really come into its own.
Modern shopping centres and stores are increasingly becoming spaces that offer genuine retail experiences. Light is now being used more and more to stimulate emotions and create brand identities. Authenticity, energy efficiency, individualisation, miniaturisation of the luminaires and precise accentuation therefore play a central role when planners look to design effective lighting solutions for retail and presentation applications.
The turnable and tiltable CARDAN evolution luminaire from the Zumtobel fuses outstanding flexibility with a timelessly simple design, enabling both sizes of this recessed downlight to blend harmoniously into a wide variety of architectural settings. An extensive range of accessories adds even further creative scope by fulfilling a wide range of precise accent-lighting tasks. In this way, CARDAN evolution stands out as a multifunctional lighting tool characterised by excellent colour rendering and a choice of light distributions.
The housing design as a unique feature Zumtobel developed the fundamental and functional design concept for CARDAN evolution together with the architecture and design office blocher partners. As a core and yet simultaneously discreet and asymmetrical design feature, the so-called “Lightgroove” is a moulding in the housing that crucially prevents self-exposure – a typical problem with existing cardanic solutions. In combination with dedicated reflector technology, the “Lightgroove” also ensures excellent glare reduction and therefore optimal visual comfort.
