LED light in a clear geometrical design language: new Kju Circle light modules by Selux

Geo­me­tri­cal, purist, ver­sa­tile – this vision of a modern archi­tec­ture-based lumi­naire is made rea­lity by the Kju family of lumi­nai­res by Selux. In addi­tion to the square models already pre­sen­ted by Selux at Light+Building 2014, there now comes a new cir­cu­lar series of Kju LED light modu­les — Kju Circle. Like Kju Square, this has an impres­sive mini­mum con­struc­tion height of just 33mm and a lumi­nous volume at the side. Numerous moun­ting vari­ants and two optics system enable cre­a­tive ligh­ting solu­ti­ons with a con­sis­tent aes­the­tic.

As design ele­ments, the basic geo­me­tri­cal shapes of circle and square repre­sent the gre­a­test pos­si­ble cla­rity and pre­ci­sion. In Kju Circle, Selux has devel­o­ped a cir­cu­lar equi­va­lent of its qua­dra­tic Kju Square light modu­les. In terms of con­struc­tion and func­ti­ons, the round and qua­dra­tic ver­si­ons are simi­lar. This pro­vi­des plan­ners with a full range of opti­ons so that the two grap­hi­cal shapes can be freely com­bi­ned for ligh­ting con­cepts. The Kju light modu­les are par­ti­cu­larly easy-to-mount and, behind their ele­gant design, lies high-per­for­mance ligh­ting tech­no­logy for a high level of visual com­fort.

Pure light from a flo­a­ting, flat volume

The lumi­naire body of Kju Circle like­wise con­sists of high-qua­lity, crystal clear PMMA with pre­ci­sion, mini­ma­list con­tours. A par­ti­cu­lar fea­ture of all Kju lumi­nai­res is that the emit­ted light is con­ti­nued at the luminaire‘s ver­ti­cal front surfa­ces, len­ding the hou­sing the appe­a­rance of a flo­a­ting body of light. Des­pite its low con­struc­tion height of just 33mm, Kju ensu­res extre­mely homo­ge­nous ligh­ting, ensu­red by a sepa­ra­tely devel­o­ped layer of lenses which spreads the point­cast LED light across the entire lumi­naire. 3000K and 4000K are avai­la­ble as a choice of light colours while brightness can be dimmed via DALI.
Selux offers two optics sys­tems for Kju to cater for its various appli­ca­ti­ons: with a microp­rism dif­fu­ser, Kju com­p­lies with the high anti-dazzle spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons requi­red for offi­ces and work­pla­ces. And with a system effi­ci­ency of up to 87 lm/​W, the ver­sion with the opaque dif­fu­ser is suit­able for par­ti­cu­larly eco­no­mi­cal and sustai­na­ble gene­ral ligh­ting. Addi­ti­o­nal flexi­bi­lity in ligh­ting design is cre­a­ted by its avai­la­bi­lity as a direct or direct/​indirect light module.

Light modu­les for ver­sa­tile moun­ting types

Various moun­ting types make the Kju an extra­or­di­na­rily ver­sa­tile tool for archi­tec­tu­ral ligh­ting. Its cir­cu­lar light modu­les can be trans­for­med into pen­dant, surface-moun­ted or reces­sed lumi­nai­res as requi­red with no need for addi­ti­o­nal moun­ting acces­so­ries are for use as a surface-moun­ted lumi­naire on walls or cei­lings. With a rope sus­pen­sion, the Kju beco­mes an ele­gant pen­dant lumi­naire while moun­ting frames are avai­la­ble for par­tial instal­la­tion, rim­less instal­la­tion or instal­la­tion with a brac­ket accor­din­gly. This ena­bles Kju to be inte­gra­ted effort­les­sly into all styles of archi­tec­ture, cre­a­ting light com­po­si­ti­ons for all types of rooms from offi­ces and mee­ting rooms, recep­tion areas or shops to gene­ral tho­rough­fa­res such as cor­ri­dors and stair­wells.

Assem­bly-friendly in every res­pect

Selux devel­o­pers have placed par­ti­cu­lar emp­ha­sis on simple and logi­cal instal­la­tion with Kju: its Click & Light system is assem­bly-friendly in every res­pect, with the light module con­nec­ted to the con­ver­ter hou­sing and its attach­ment acces­so­ries via an intel­li­gent click-in system. In this way the light modu­les can be instal­led and ope­ra­ted safely and wit­hout tools; as a result, all elec­tro­nic parts remain pro­tec­ted from elec­tro­sta­tic discharge at all times.
