Zumtobel receives Cradle to Cradle Certified, Version 4.0 certification

Zumtobel has proudly presented ARTELEA, a slimline, free-standing office luminaire designed for today’s dynamic work environments. Combining elegant aesthetics and a powerful lumen output of up to 32,000 lumens, it is a timeless and future-proof lighting solution. With one pole and two luminaire head sizes offered in various configurations, including a wall luminaire, ARTELEA provides up to nine unique possibilities, maintaining a consistent office design language, while allowing maximum creative freedom.

Sustainability and modularity are at the core of ARTELEA’s design. Crafted from up to 80% recyclable materials, it was designed to Zumtobel’s Circular Design Rules (CDRs). It is one of the first luminaires on the market to receive Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard Version 4.0 certification. ARTELEA’s high-quality raw materials, such as aluminium, steel, and sheet steel, are chosen for their ease of separation and reuse at the end of the luminaire’s long life. With an average service life of 100,000 hours, it is estimated to last approximately 48 years based on a standard 40-hour work week.

Design for disassembly

ARTELEA is designed for easy retrofitting, embracing the ‘design for disassembly’ concept. Individual elements are readily accessible, facilitating quick and convenient removal. Most components are suitable for second or even third usage phases, significantly reducing material consumption and associated resources. This approach also contributes to a reduction of approximately 74.2kg of CO2 emissions.

Made for networking

Featuring swarm technology, it’s interface enables networking among individual free-standing luminaires. When a luminaire detects a person’s presence, it activates and communicates with nearby luminaires to automatically adjust to pre-defined light levels. This collaboration creates a wellbeing-focused, energy efficient atmosphere in the office.

Following the natural rhythm

It employs tunableWhite technology with a real-time clock function, providing lighting that syncs with daylight rhythms to enhance concentration and performance. The satinised microprismatic optics ensure even light distribution, reducing glare. It complies with the updated DIN EN 12464-1:2021-11 standard for indoor workplace lighting. Additionally, employees can adjust basic settings to cater to individual preferences within legal requirements, promoting self-efficacy and wellbeing.

ARTELEA, designed by EOOS Design, embodies circular design principles. It can be easily maintained, upgraded with cutting-edge lighting technology, and reconfigured for extended service life. All electronics are integrated into ultra-flat light heads. An innovative docking port system allows future modifications, making it an ideal solution for enduring and flexible office applications.
