VAERO – Perfect purism

Zumtobel presents VAERO as the ideal design solution for modern office architecture

With VAERO Zumtobel has designed an innovative LED pendant luminaire that, thanks to its clear, minimalist and subtle design, fits seamlessly into the architecture of modern office environments – whether spacious, airy, transparent open spaces or communicative team rooms, quiet zones or individual offices.

Companies are no longer rigid systems, they are constantly changing. Modern types of work, such as flexible working hours, fluid structures or project-based team work require a variable workplace design. The linear and puristic design of the VAERO pendant luminaire fits in both classic group offices and modern communication zones and emphasises both minimalist and industrial styles of architecture through its reduced design and by forgoing decorative elements.

The secret behind the design is the concentration on essentials. A transparent light-emitting surface, clear, straight lines and the renouncement of a converter box on the ceiling characterise this minimalist design. Thanks to the special lighting technology and the particularly narrow and low centre bar, the housing remains extremely slim and the wings form a clear edge. In addition, the luminaire body was designed without a frame, with the aid of special cladding. In this way, this graceful luminaire remains discreetly in the background adapts to the room architecture. On being switched on, VAERO looks like a stick-thin, almost hovering, evenly-illuminating light disk. When switched off, however, it appears no less elegant, as the transparent light guide panel is almost transparent. Aligned to the minimalist appearance of modern workspaces, VAERO is also available in special colour shades: Here the centre bar is available in untreated aluminium, for example for an office environment with concrete architecture, or in black or bronze colours.

VAERO will be available by the end of November.
