“Our main goal was to design an elegant luminaire that would satisfy different desk arrangements. We followed Bauhaus principles where form follows function and a Scandinavian design tradition that combines intuitive functionality with subtle aesthetics, clean lines, and a slim profile with edge-lit LED panels,” said Hans Bleken Rud, Industrial Designer responsible for Luxo Adapt at Glamox. “The end result is a sleek, freestanding office luminaire with fewer lamps and wires, and which adapts to the user, not the other way around.”
Working on the design with Hans Bleken Rud was Andreas Murray, Industrial Designer, from Permafrost, the award-winning design studio in Oslo.
The Luxo Adapt range has a minimalist profile and is designed with flexibility in mind. The luminaires are available in black, grey, and white, and offer different options for controls, sensors, and adjustable or fixed colour temperatures. A control panel on the pole allows independent control of the downlight and up-light. Adapt’s up-light illuminates the ceiling, which then reflects back on the surrounding areas below. This reduces the need for dedicated ceiling lights, while still fulfilling EU requirements.
