'DISCUS Evolution' LED lighting system by EOOS Design for Zumtobel embraces minimal form for maximum effect, picking up a iF gold award in the lighting category

‘DISCUS Evolution’ LED lighting system by EOOS Design for Zumtobel embraces minimal form for maximum effect, picking up a iF gold award in the lighting category

Three score old and in rude health: the iF design gold awards, handed out to a painstakingly selected, international cohort of companies at the recent Munich Creative Business Week for their outstanding products, is looking to the future. Lean, lithe and limber, iF, one of longest-established design awards schemes internationally, is showing little sign of slowing down. Indeed, with operations – beyond its HQ in Germany’s expo city of Hanover – in Taipei, Seoul, Istanbul, Curitiba and Zittau, this annual gong-laden showcase of the best in product design, packaging and communication design has long exceeded its original, post-war ‘Industrie Forum Design’ remit to become a truly ‘International Forum’ for design excellence. Architonic’s Simon Keane-Cowell presents some of the winners of this year’s iF International Forum Design Award and interviews Ralph Wiegmann, Managing Director, iF International Forum Design GmbH.

OberAlp/SALEWA Group’s new HQ in Bolzano, Northern Italy

More often than not, office architecture can be, well, a little inward-looking. Shut out the outside world and focus staffers’ attention on their building’s interior spaces and you’ll keep them focused on their work. Right? Wrong. The OperAlp/SALEWA Group’s new headquarters in Bolzano, Italy, bring the outside in and, thanks to a collaboration with lighting manufacturer Zumtobel, never leave their workers in the dark.

A three-way collaboration between leading lighting brand Zumtobel, lighting designers LichtKunstLicht, and architects schneider+schumacher resulted in a highly creative lighting solution for the new subterranean extension to Frankfurt’s Städel Museum

Lighting always has to work harder when it’s deployed in underground spaces. But when the space in question is a museum one, where the considered illumination of its exhibits is key – not to mention their protection against the potentially damaging effects of lighting – you’ve got a real challenge on your hands. Here’s how leading lighting manufacturer Zumtobel responded to such a brief…

‘Discus’ by EOOS for Zumtobel (AT)

'Discus' by Zumtobel

The Austrian specialist for architectural lighting Zumtobel presented its first spot light system especially designed for LED technology. It was developed in collaboration with EOOS and showcased during this year’s light+building in Frankfurt for the first time. The flat and low-profile body is made of die-cast aluminium, the ring of cooling ribs is not only the spotlight’s dominating design feature but also performs the cooling function required by LED technology. Optimised thermal management is decisive for the durablity of any kind of high-power LED modules.

'Diskus' by Zumtobel

“The idea behind the design developed by the Austrian designer trio was to minimise the shapes by using the new LED technology. Harald Gründl from EOOS: “Discus is the archaic symbol of the sun – combined with cutting-edge LED lighting technology.”

Thus, the LED version has a width of only 28 mm. The newly developed track-box adapter platform features a compact, unobtrusive design, emphasising the minimalist spotlight concept. For its appealing design, Zumtobel won the 2010 iF award for excellent product design granted by the Design Council.”

Starbrick by Olafur Eliasson at the Art Miami

'Starbrick' by Olafur Eliasson at the Art Miami

Art Basel Miami Beach is the most important art exhibition in the United States. From 3 – 6 December 2009 the Austrian lighting manufacturer Zumtobel will present its innovative lighting solutions and selected masterpieces in this exclusive setting, e.g. the Starbrick Masterpiece, which was created in collaboration with world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, at the Art Collectors Lounge.

'Starbrick' by Olafor Eliasson for Zumtobel

“The Starbrick is a fascinating experiment with light modulation and space. In recent years, Olafur Eliasson’s studio has performed a series of lighting experiments in collaboration with Zumtobel. During one of those experiments they decided to test different qualities and hues of LED light, placed within the individual modules, which eventually resulted in the current Starbrick. Its LEDs are organised to emit white light while also creating a luminous yellow and kaleidoscopic core in the shape of a cubeoctahedron. The LEDs are dimmable and have various light settings, offering both functional and ambient light.”

“Occupying a central place in James Turrell’s oeuvre is the Roden Crater, an extinct volcano in the Arizona desert which the artist has been transforming into an observatory since 1974.”
