CLARIS and CLARIS II luminaires from Zumtobel have set the benchmark for design, lighting technology and quality for the last 20 years. CLARIS evolution maintains the high standards established by the previous generations and looks to the future with its fusion of consistent design language and innovative LED technology.

The development project was all about getting back to the bare essentials. While the original proportions were retained, the actual dimensions of the luminaire have been carefully trimmed down to achieve an uncompromising design that is more modern and more minimalist. However, the expressive appearance of the CLARIS evolution is not just about the slim, one-piece aluminium housing. The recessed light chambers complement the overall design and give the fitting an unmistakably striking visual structure.

Like its predecessors, the CLARIS evolution has a restrained look that enables the pendant luminaire to integrate harmoniously into any interior design. Outstanding versatility is supported by a range of colour finishes, as this modern interpretation of an iconic louvre luminaire can be specified in black, white, bronze and silver. Factor in the choice of a black, white or silver light chamber in matt or glass and clients can select the right luminaire from a list offering 24 different colour variants.

The combination of sophisticated LED technology and MPO+ microprismatic structure ensures high levels of visual comfort. The ratio between direct and indirect output is optimised to simultaneously generate a pleasant spatial atmosphere and deliver ergonomic working light – and to fulfil both these functions with a significant increase in efficiency. Indeed, CLARIS evolution boasts a fantastic efficiency of 151 lumens per watt.

The option to wirelessly control CLARIS evolution via BasicDIM wireless offers yet more lighting comfort. This compact control module from the Tridonic sister brand automatically establishes a mesh communication network via Bluetooth. This enables uncomplicated wireless communication with up to 127 luminaires.

With its outstanding future-oriented technology, wide range of colour combinations and clear minimalist design, CLARIS evolution is the perfect lighting tool to enhance any office environment.
