Loop by Selux – The Lightness of Light

An ele­gant alter­na­tive to con­ven­tion­ally-shaped lumi­naires, Loop brings fresh­ness, dynam­ics and opti­mal light qual­ity into office envi­ron­ments with its cir­cu­lar form. Yet its micro­prisms optics makes the Loop suit­able for places other than offices – with its two light dis­tri­b­u­tions and five assem­bly ver­sions, it can also pro­vide a wel­come change and high level of visual com­fort in other archi­tec­tural appli­ca­tions.

Loop – the first office-com­pat­i­ble cir­cu­lar lumi­naire
Cir­cu­lar, del­i­cate, emo­tional – the aes­thetic fresh­ness of the Loop family enables a new qual­ity of light for offices. In work areas, con­fer­ence rooms, restau­rants, cor­ri­dors, foyers or shops, Loop is a plea­sure to behold, with its dis­tinc­tive shape and ergonom­i­cally opti­mised light. Loop by Selux is an ele­gant alter­na­tive to right angles for office plan­ners and design­ers.

Loop‘s char­ac­ter­is­tic ring shape is man­u­fac­tured from pre­ci­sion die-cast alu­minium and has a slim cross sec­tion just 36 mm high and 25 mm wide, result­ing in a diam­e­ter of 496 mm. With five assem­bly vari­ants and two optics sys­tems, this new prod­uct family solves even the most com­plex light­ing tasks using one con­sis­tent shape. This is because Loop is avail­able as a pen­dant lumi­naire for a light, float­ing effect, in a partly ceil­ing-mounted ver­sion, as a wall-mounted lumi­naire or in a slim, free-stand­ing ver­sion.

Direc­tional micro­prisms with anti-glare
While asym­met­ri­cal lens cham­bers are used for light trap­ping of the highly effi­cient LEDs, micro­prisms dif­fusers in a radial arrange­ment ensure the light is emit­ted with low-glare. Its pre­mium qual­ity optics system is man­u­fac­tured from one single part. The trans­par­ent ver­sion sup­plies effi­cient, pre­cisely directed light for office appli­ca­tions (UGR<19) while the opal ver­sion of the microlens dif­fuser gen­er­ates light with a silky appear­ance for gen­eral light­ing pur­poses.

Direct and indi­rect light – sep­a­rately switch­able
The pen­dant and free-stand­ing lumi­naire radi­ate their light both directly and indi­rectly for attrac­tive, uni­form light­ing, with both light por­tions sep­a­rately switch­able and dim­ma­ble. Loop can also be inte­grated via its DALI inter­face into cor­re­spond­ing light con­trol sys­tems. All Loop vari­ants are avail­able in two light colours, 3,000 K or 4,000 K.

A free-stand­ing lumi­naire with spe­cial details
The free-stand­ing lumi­naire can be switched and dimmed locally and indi­vid­u­ally using Selux Tune. This exter­nal con­trol unit com­mu­ni­cates wire­lessly with the lumi­naire, enabling it to be placed any­where within the room for con­ve­nient oper­a­tion. A fur­ther spe­cial fea­ture is the free-stand­ing luminaire’s design, with a radial recess inserted in its cir­cu­lar base, a detail that soon proves its prac­ti­cal worth during day-to-day use. A table leg can be inserted into this gap, thus enabling this free-stand­ing lumi­naire to be placed even closer to desks.

Minor prac­ti­cal details like this are evi­dence of how the Loop is the result of Selux‘ many years of expe­ri­ence in the area of work­sta­tion light­ing. With the Loop, both plan­ners and users will derive plea­sure from a lumi­naire that has an inno­v­a­tive appear­ance yet is extremely prac­ti­cal.
