LEDs - "Light-Emitting Diodes" - have conquered the lighting market with great potential. Occhio successfully invested in the development of its own electronics in order to meet the high demands for perfect light using the new technology. Today, the Munich-based lighting company stands for an innovative overall concept based on LEDs, which is unique in the industry.
Light emitting diodes are semiconductor elements that convert electrical energy directly into light. This efficiency is the secret of their success. Occhio has put together a veritable high-performance LED package with interchangeable and dimmable modules and variable power settings. The color temperature can be set in a range from 2,700 Kelvin to 4,000 Kelvin – for light that adapts to any mood, from a warm lighting atmosphere for relaxed evening hours to stimulating cool working light. With CRI 97, Occhio offers excellent color rendering that is amazingly close to sunlight.
With an exemplary innovation, the VOLT technology, Occhio has ushered in a new era in the application of LED lighting technology. The integration of LED and electronics in a compact module makes the use of light as easy as in the days of the light bulb: simply connect where there is a power supply – without any additional power supply, without restrictions in light quality and dimmability. This innovation was used for the first time in the Più VOLT spotlight series, where LEDs and electronics are combined in a compact, exchangeable module. The luminaire design is reduced even further and can be mounted anywhere without any problems.
By developing its own electronics, Occhio has raised the usability of the luminaires to a new level: The gesture control enables touchless control directly at the luminaire head. Thanks to innovative sensor technology, the light can be switched and dimmed with an intuitive hand movement. An integrated fading function enables stepless switching between uplight and downlight. With Occhio air, Occhio has extended its modular luminaire systems by an additional dimension: the Bluetooth control is integrated directly into the Sento and Mito luminaire heads, detached from any home automation system and yet DALI-compatible. Built-in and add-on modules are available for all other Occhio models. The luminaires can now be used intuitively and without any installation effort. In addition to individual control of the luminaire, entire lighting scenarios and groups can be defined.
However, the added value for the user is not limited to the fascinating operating possibilities. All Occhio luminaires are manufactured from selected, surface-finished materials such as aluminium, brass and steel. In addition to lacquered surfaces, very elaborate anodised and PVD surfaces are also available. Optical lenses and specially treated glasses are used for the lighting components – just like for a high-quality camera lens – while intelligent thermal management further extends the service life of the LEDs, so that a unique quality experience is achieved in the end.
