Inspired by the natural light of the sun, which is unique and beautiful in every place, at every season and at every hour, we want to create artificial light that fits into the cyclical rhythms of nature and whose positive effects outweigh the negative ones for everyone: Humans, animals and plants alike.
SAFETY AND ORIENTATION FOR CITIZENS
Artificial light helps us humans to see at night. Light gives us security, guides orientation, movements, gazes and it invites us to pause and reflect. With good lighting, we create atmosphere, quality of life and even magical moments.
WILDLIFE PROTECTION AND DARK SKY CITIES
On the other hand, the recurring alternation of brightness and a deep black night sky is important for plants, animals and humans. Artificial light disturbs these natural rhythms. The Circular Light Profiles from Selux are scientifically based on adapting the light to natural cycles and the activity of animals.
ENERGY SAVING AND CO2 REDUCTION
Artificial light is a major source of energy for cities and municipalities. City lighting therefore plays a decisive role in the goal of significantly saving energy and becoming climate-neutral. Our circular lighting profiles make it easy to conserve resources.
Our smart, science-based profiles create a new simplicity. They enable customised, sustainable lighting for every community, for every location. The pre-conceived intelligence is pre-installed in each individual luminaire on the Selux Core. This eliminates the need for time-consuming planning and support. The luminaire is delivered ready for use.
shape the light
Only as bright as necessary. Dynamic light intensity for safety, efficiency and the preservation of darkness.
Dynamic colour temperatures over the course of the year and day. For the protection of fauna and flora.
Adaptive light distributions in the course of the day. To create atmosphere, a sense of space, efficiency and to maintain a dark sky.
The path to an intelligent luminaire with an individual light profile in six steps
1 Select a basic profile
In the first step, you select a basic profile. This specifies the basic logic according to which your individual light profile is calculated.
2 Specify the geographical position
The geographical position is used to calculate sunrise and sunset times, which act as natural rhythms for the lighting profiles.
3 Specify space
Based on the specific urban zone with a focus on culture, mix or nature, the selected basic profile is calibrated. You will receive a finely adjusted lighting diagram for your project.
4 Select luminaire
You choose a luminaire model that fits harmoniously into the appearance of your project. You can equip the same model with different profiles.
5 Do you use a central switch-off for your luminaires?
Your individual profile takes central cut-off devices into account. All you have to do is specify this in the configuration process.
6 Finalise order
Your luminaire is delivered ready for use with your individual profile already pre-installed. Plug and Light - without time-consuming configuration.
For more than 75 years, we have been concerned with how to illuminate places. The most important question for us is how lighting should look in the decades to come.
How must light work to create safety, orientation and beauty? How can we prevent our ecological limits from being further strained? Is there such a thing as perfect light? Nature provides the answers.
This insight gave rise to the idea of adapting artificial light to natural rhythms: a little different every day, in every season and in every place in the world - but always unique.
We look forward to the future of light.
