directional downward LEDs fitted with special lenses to create precise, cut-off lighting distribution. To balance this intensive downlight element, a switchable fluorescent uplight component emits a soft ambient light effect to create a fully direct/indirect light source. Mike Attard, managing director of RIDI Lighting (owners of Spectral), comments: ‘The directional LEDS are an excellent innovation, which gives the end-user real flexibility and control over their work zone lighting whilst using the minimum amount of energy.’


Speaking of floor standing task lighting, Zumtobel has upgraded its range of freestanding luminaires with Capa and Opura. The latter allows separate control of the indirect and direct components. Developed by Peter Andres & ON Industriedesign, Opura is available in three different versions: as an LED-only version, as a hybrid model or fitted with compact

fluorescent lamps. The hybrid free-standing luminaire uses the best of two worlds: the LED to provide direct light, and the TC-L lamp for pleasant ambient lighting.


Capa meets all the criteria for energy saving luminaires in modern workplaces. Thanks to an installed load reduced by 50 percent using 28 W TC-L lamps, compared to conventional luminaires using 4 × 55W lamps, Capa Plus and Capa Lite boast excellent power consumption levels. The ceiling is uniformly lit thanks to wide-angle indirect light distribution. It is also possible to integrate the SensControl II control unit into Capa Plus.


‘Recommended in EN 12464, the concept of task area lighting is fundamentally in conflict with the older uniform lighting approach – and offers many advantages over it,’ explains Steve Shackleton, marketing director at


Zumtobel. ‘Task area lighting allows lighting levels to be higher at the task area (typically 500lux) where visual tasks are performed, while keeping light levels lower in the surrounding spaces (300lux). Compared with a uniform array scheme, such an approach offers the freedom to utilise additional accent lighting and wall-washers, which can give added visual interest, by creating a multi dimensional visual quality to space. And by reducing overall illuminance levels within the facility, energy and maintenance costs can also be reduced too.’


One of my pet hates is offices that feel like concrete boxes with rows and rows of fluorescents. We should feel inspired and happy when we are at work, and lighting can have a major part in this. Every member of staff should have a flexible task light that can be adjusted to meet their individual needs.
