BILLINGS JACKSON


A partnership, whose credits include some of the biggest names in lighting design, were tasked with creating a new range for Trilux, fully exploiting the latest in solid state technology.


Founded by Eoin Billings and Duncan Jackson in London in 1992, Billings Jackson Design has a rich history in luminaire design. Having previously designed fittings for iGuzzini and most notably Zumtobel under the commission of Grimshaw archi- tects, the industrial design practice was well placed to work with German lumi- naire manufacturer Trilux to develop two new luminaires in record time. In order to launch the products at Light+Building the design team had just eight months to develop Aurista, a recessed reflector luminaire and Coriflex, a continuous line system, both incorporating LED. Duncan Jackson takes up the story: “We have been working within the industry since 2000 with significant success and we are now very familiar with, and comfort- able in what is a small world. When we met [Trilux Managing Director] Dietmar Zembrot it was immediately evident that we shared similar ambitions to exploit the potential of LED to its fullest to cre- ate better environments. For us, and for Trilux, the superior light quality that LED provides is as important as its energy ef- ficiency. It was very ambitious to develop two new applications in eight months and it would have been impossible without the


close-knit team built from specialists to cover such a large amount of ground to enable rapid product development. We are all very proud of both Aurista and Coriflex and we are delighted to have established an ongoing relationship with Trilux.” Aurista features a plastic metal reflector that frames the LEDs to give a star-shaped emission of light. These “illuminating stars” widen the illuminated area and thus also reduces levels of contrast occurring between the light source and the periph- eral surfaces to create a really special light appearance. The Trilux in-house LCL technology (Low Contrast Light) confi- dently sets the LEDs in scene to ensure a harmonious light appearance. This unique combination of reflector and LEDs convinc- es with an appealing design, and at the same time energy consumption is reduced by up to 56% compared to conventional louvre luminaires.


“By using the reflector star we’ve impres- sively placed the LEDs into the foreground. We thus create a unique ambience and a completely new language of form that particularly underlines the special char- acteristic of LEDs,” explained Eoin Billings. A high luminous efficiency of 80 lm/W also means sustainable light, and with


maximum flexibility: the light stars can be individually configured according to customer requirements to increase design diversity, while also guaranteeing every room optimal and also workzone-oriented illuminance. Produced with module dimensions, Aurista is a good alternative for standard T5 and T8 luminaires. The luminaire can be installed in ceiling systems with exposed and concealed grids and also in cut-out ceilings. Thanks to the Linect system the luminaire is also simply and quickly installed, and offers both an economically and optically attractive solution that up- grades all rooms technically and in terms of atmosphere.


Coriflex optimises the usual process chain for planning and installation of a continu- ous line and makes it easier for installers and planners to implement mounting. Standard accessories such as mounting rails, gear trays and reflectors are already integrated, and the compact elements are delivered to match the room. This means the luminaires are configured and installed with a few twists of the wrist and in a short space of time.


Economy of mounting also equates to economy during running operation
