With 50 company-owned sales organisations and commercial agencies in a total of 70 countries, Zumtobel shows international presence at the customer's site. The company, whose roots are in Vorarlberg, sets great store by international contacts to establish a worldwide network of experts and design partners within the lighting industry.
The emotional effects of light
With integral lighting solutions, Zumtobel creates lighting scenes which enable people to experience the interplay of light and architecture in all its diversity. Light unfolds its special creative power in an interplay with space and architecture. The combined use of luminaires, lighting management and emergency lighting systems corresponds to the architecture of a building and is matched to the application.
Use of new technologies
Providing people with optimum lighting quality, whatever they do - Zumtobel is striving to achieve this goal, utilising all technical options available. Zumtobel is able to quickly turn new technologies such as waveguide, micropyramidal structure and LED into high-quality products, systems and sophisticated lighting concepts. In applied research, particular emphasis is placed on energy efficiency. At identical conditions in terms of light sources, daylight-based lighting control and luminaires with increased light output ratio, such as the PANOS PSP+® downlights with silver-coated reflectors, provide more light and increased brightness than standard solutions.
Light creates a sense of well-being
To provide people with optimum lighting quality, Zumtobel explores the beneficial effects of light on health, continuously improving its utilisability. In this respect, the consumption of energy required for lighting has to be considered, too. The concept of balance between light for enhanced well-being and optimum energy efficiency adjusts the equilibrium between the two aspects within a lighting system: human light + energy efficiency = "Humanergy Balance".
Cooperation with project partners to improve opportunities and potentials
Zumtobel is positioned as a global partner in international project management with investors and building developers, architects, lighting designers, electrical consultants, electricians, wholesalers and international distribution partners. High-quality lighting solution concepts, innovative technologies in terms of function and design as well as a wide range of individual services form the basis of integral project solutions.
Advantage through knowledge
Zumtobel has established Light Forums and Light/Consulting Centers at 15 locations to create and maintain sustainable customer loyalty through intense dialogue. The most recent, state-of-the-art Light Forum was opened in November 2005 in Dornbirn. More than 30,000 customers all over the world have so far made use of this unique platform to obtain important practical knowledge relating to basic principles, products and applications in workshops and seminars.
