A highlight of evolution captured for eternity. Flowing, bionic forms in the sublime grace of nature's great creations inspired Design Dieter K. Weis, as did those masterpieces of human ingenuity from a time when design was all about aerodynamics. Streamlined curves as the shortest path between engineering technology and visual harmony for perfection in form and function. Accentuated by the surrounding interior design, sculpture makes a statement rather than adding an accent. Made of solid cast aluminium with lavish hand-crafted finishes, sculpture hovers like a Zeppelin flexibly suspended on delicate wires, topped off with innovative lighting technology.
The lighting body made from cast aluminium is carefully manufactured and prepared by hand for accomodating the delicate mechanic components and the sophisticated light and light management technology as well as for the precious lacquers. A masterpiece of traditional founding made in Germany: The massive but delicate body of the luminaire is cast from pure aluminium in one piece. The precious metal is light, fully recyclable and provides ideal cooling to the integrated technology. For the millelumen sculpture in chrome and 24k gold plated another process was chosen: Each body gets cut out of a full block of aluminium by a milling machine in over 12 hours. Only this ensures perfect galvanised surfaces.
Whether plain-coloured or in carbon-design, semi- or high-gloss special lacquers in any requested colour or even chromed and 24k gold-plated aluminium: The surface of each lighting corpus made from cast aluminium is individually refined by hand. Standard surfaces are available in high-gloss colours white and black, semi-gloss anthracite and silver and in high-gloss carbon design of these four varieties. Special colours like Ferrari red are available on request. As all surfaces are exquisitely and time-consuming handcrafted step by step, each and every millelumen sculpture is a valuable and unique specimen - created to last.
The millelumen sculpture is equipped with state of the art LED lighting technology. The powerful but energy efficient LEDs have an extraordinary operating life due to the ideal cooling of the massive aluminium body if the millelumen sculpture.
The standard light temperature is 2.700 Kelvin, other color temperatures are available on request. Due to a color rencering index of >90, the millelumen sculpture’s light is true-color. The millelumen sculpture can be ordered for three different dimming types: trailing-edge dimmable or DALI or Casambi Bluetooth.
The available drop light version has an intelligent pendant mechanism integrated into delicate turned design housing components matching the shape and surface of the luminaire body.
The wire brackets "hover" contact-free in the body notches. The single conductor wires are easily mountable and exchangeable if necessary.
For a perfect appearance the ceiling box and the luminaire body always come in matching colours. Special colours are available on request.
