Futuristic luminaire design and cutting-edge lighting technology. By combining LED and fluorescent lamp technology, the light output ratio can be boosted by more than 10%.

In unveiling its new Aero Hybrid II pendant luminaire, Zumtobel is presenting office lighting of the future. This new pendant luminaire combines two efficient light sources which power a system that sets new standards when it comes to lighting quality and ease of use. Aero Hybrid II combines anorganic LEDs, which provide a brilliant direct component and fluorescent lamps for direct general lighting. This hybrid design makes it possible to significantly improve the overall efficiency of the luminaire system compared with conventional luminaires using fluorescent lamps.

The development of anorganic LEDs has resulted in more efficient light sources characterised by extreme brilliance and a long service life. These LEDs, when teamed with highly efficient T16 light sources, provide a hybrid solution which combines the best of both worlds. LEDs for a brilliant, stimulating direct component, and T16 for indirect ambient lighting. This hybrid design boosts overall system efficiency by more than 10% compared with conventional T16 lighting systems.

The design of the Aero luminaire was created by Sottsass Associati, Milan. Its straight-line styling and outstanding lighting technology have already made the conventional version of this luminaire a classic. The efficient MPO+ micro-pyramidal optic ensures optimal light distribution and glare control, especially for use at DSE workstations. A precision micro-prismatic structure selectively directs light from the LEDs onto the area to be lit. Reflected glare and direct glare are both minimised. Illuminated areas have a homogeneous effect and convey a clear, brilliant lighting look.

Separating the direct component (LED) from the indirect component (T16) provides qualitative benefits such as separate control of direct and indirect components and the ability to implement individual lighting scenes.
