Italian lighting major CoeLux Srl that takes pride in physical reproduction of optical atmospheric phenomena indoors has introduced yet another innovative product, CoeLux HT25. CoeLux is an optical system based on nano-technology to artificially reproduce the natural light and visual appearance of the sun and sky. It combines three key elements: the latest LED technology which reproduces the sunlight’s spectrum; a sophisticated optical system that creates the sensation of the distance between the sky and the sun; and nano-structured materials, only a few millimeters thick, which recreate the entire Rayleigh scattering process which occurs in the atmosphere.
It is the first of the CoeLux systems characterised by a zenithal beam of light with a versatile design, 25 cm thick for a rectangular window measuring 52*107 cm. It allows great design freedom, its distinctive 25 cm thickness is suitable for recessed installation even in small heights, in plasterboard false ceilings or modular ones. It can be installed in different compositions and the subtle design of the frame facilitates the creation of semi-continuous windows, creating the perception of large portions of sky. Moving around the area below the system, the observer will be able to see a large portion of sky and by approaching and entering the emitted spot the sun will appear, slightly diffused and not very dazzling. The optical design helps to create the sun perceived at infinite distance and the observer, moving in space, will have the impression that the sun is always positioned above his head.
The sun of CoeLux HT25 illuminates and projects a beam of intense light, enhancing the colours and the textures of the room and the objects in it. The spot projection is slightly wider than the window and illuminates the surrounding area diffusely. With a 60 degree flaring, the thin, opaque white frame intercepts the sun and creates a reflection on the sky, increasing the perception of depth of the window.
The HT25 system is characterized by the CoeLux panel made of scratch-resistant and fireproof glass: the nano-particles inside diffuse the light, recreating the blue colour of the sky. The system can be dimmed from 40% to maximum power, it is DALI compatible and can be controlled via Bluetooth from a smartphone upon request.
