Modern living spaces are trending towards an open kitchen with a sideboard and bar or a combined kitchen/living room where communal preparation and eating merge. This makes it all the more important to have versatile kitchen lighting that ensures safety by providing sufficient brightness. Good general lighting makes it easier to keep track of cupboards and utensils. The light intensity should be at least 500 lux for sufficient visibility to prevent accidents when chopping or using the stove. Wide-beam ceiling spotlights or luminaires create uniform brightness on all surfaces, improving orientation.
Single ceiling spotlights or downlights are ideal for kitchen island lighting. Turn them on while cooking and simply dim them when you are finished. Track systems are a clever solution for the work area. Individual light insets deliver targeted lighting for the sink, stove, and worktops. Under-cabinet luminaires offer ideal, glare-free illumination of counters or worksurfaces, as they are mounted "invisibly" underneath cabinet or shelf boards. Optics also play a key role in kitchen lighting. The higher the colour rendering value of kitchen luminaires – CRI90 or more is recommended – the more appetising food looks and the better its quality and freshness appears.
NANO is a reduced luminaire series that stays in the background and yet delivers light exactly where needed. Small, slim, and powerful, it is ideal for illuminating shelves and offers the best possible visual conditions – glare-free and precise. Complete your kitchen lighting with the matching NANO and choose between opal luminaires with minimal dimensions, flexibly alignable spots, or swivelling, built-in spotlines.
