The new Zumtobel SUPERSYSTEM integral collection designed by the noted Austrian studio EOOS is a comprehensive range of carefully miniaturised tools that offers one high-quality solution for countless architectural lighting tasks. How? By fusing pure integrated design with maximum adaptability for both the application and the architecture
SUPERSYSTEM has a unique status as a portfolio of outstanding lighting solutions. Now the SUPERSYSTEM integral collection from Zumtobel takes this concept one step further by integrating an extensive range of lighting instruments into one highly flexible holistic lighting solution.
Complex challenges require comprehensive solutions – which is why the SUPERSYSTEM integral collection features the widest selection of architectural lighting instruments around. One range offers adjustable accent lighting with spots or gimbals, horizontal downlighting, perfect vertical wallwashing and pleasant indirect lighting. And this is quantity without sacrificing quality. Each version has been carefully engineered for the exact needs of the particular job.
And while the distribution can be adapted to the task, one thing stays the same: the high level of visual comfort across the range. Low brightness with minimal light spill, outstanding glare control and the use of deep-source reflectors make sure this solution meets the highest standards demanded by Art and Culture, Retail and Office applications.
“The comprehensive planning tool is based on the poetic idea of stringently miniaturising the spotlight heads, enabling them to be perfectly integrated into a continuous linear structure,” said Harald Gründl of EOOS.
“The system magically emits light from a slender groove as a recessed or track fitting. SUPERSYSTEM integral even makes it possible to adapt existing track installations, which improves efficiency and saves resources – and helps this system make an important contribution as a sustainable design solution.”
A definite design highlight is the seamless linear 3-phase channel that can be recessed into the ceiling, surface mounted or suspended. All the different lighting elements are fully integrated into the slender channel, providing invisible illumination at its very best.
Yet sometimes solutions are made to be seen – solutions like the elegant 3-phase track version for surface or suspended mounting, ideal for refurbishment projects. Consistent miniaturisation and high-quality materials like die-cast aluminium and injection-moulded plastics blend to create a refined architectural appearance that can grace both new and retrofit projects.
If these sophisticated linear track versions are still not enough, simple (yet effective) individual standalone versions can be specified to really underline the outstanding flexibility of this range. And when it comes to taste, a choice of white, black, copper and glossy aluminium finishes should give architects and end-users plenty to think about.
The SUPERSYSTEM integral collection also covers all bases when it comes to photometric performance, lighting characteristics and controls. An output of up to 3000 lumens makes this range a real alternative for applications where traditional downlights have generally been the only option – an alternative with up to 75 lumens per Watt, in fact.
Colour temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K and 4000 K suit various different requirements, while excellent colour rendering of Ra 90 comes as standard.
Good visual comfort also means good lighting management, which is why versions with DALI and basicDIM wireless via Bluetooth ensure added adaptability and tailored light that stimulates the senses, creates experiences and protects sensitive objects.
