Product description

The passion of light
Zumtobel implemented this unique lighting sculpture following an idea developed jointly by architect Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher. VorteXX is a perfect symbiosis of organic lines and a surprisingly dynamic modulation of light colours.

The design
This impressive design is based on the vision of an infinite ribbon of light. Its charismatically curved outlines remind the beholder of a double helix and seem like a continuously flowing form - weightless, impulsive and radiant. The vibrant luminosity of its dynamic lighting enhances this impression even further. The chandelier's light colour changes continuously and barely perceptibly.

Dimensions and installation
The 2 m high and 1.5 m wide luminaire unit consists of more than 60 individually molded components, which combine to form a 12 m long continuous strand. By means of a special suspension assembly, the chandelier can be flush-fitted on the ceiling. A translucent acrylic glass cover has been inserted into its highly specular surface made of fibre glass-reinforced polyester to achieve uniform light distribution and optimum colour mixture.

Lighting solutions - endless harmony

LED modules producing indirect light in a variety of shades allow precise adjustment of colours. In combination with a lighting management system, an infinite variety of lighting scenes can be programmed. The indirect light consistently follows the spiral design of the chandelier, impressively emphasizing its smoothly flowing lines. In addition to coloured indirect light, a white LED light line with a downward beam brings out the organic form of the luminous art object. Thanks to this well-balanced combination of dynamic lines with sensuously coloured and at the same time brilliantly white light, VorteXX communicates harmonious lighting scenes to its environment and has a lasting influence on the emotional well-being of its beholders.
