When Le Corbusier published “Vers une Architecture”, a new approach to architecture was developed. It was a period of “purification” of forms and celebration of plane surfaces and orthogonal angles. Kreon has always pledged the values of Le Corbusier’s postulate looking for sober, efficient and geometrical purity throughout its right angled collection. In an attempt to improve the dialogue with the increasing demands for organic forms within contemporary architecture, Kreon sets a milestone in its long time orthogonal philosophy: Aplis. A round recessed spotlight system, able to respond to the highest qualitative and functional requirements of architectural lighting design.
Designers strive to create space. Space is brought to life by light and can be controlled in every detail with Aplis. Its construction, comprising of plasterkit, housing, reflectors and louvres can be adapted to suit spatial requirements. Different plasterkits give the option to choose between seamless finish or a discreet shadowgap. Without the use of any tools, it is possible to change reflectors to control light or louvres that define colour and depth of ceilings.
Recessed spotlights are largely used by specifiers due to their flexibility and overall discreet appearance. It’s the tilt and the rotation system that define the strength of a product. Aplis’ mechanism widely fulfils these expectations since a combined movement of rotation and translation coexist in highly recessed optics with maximal light output. With a vertical drop of 50mm and an inclination of 30°, the luminaire can aim both at vertical and horizontal surfaces. Aplis can be manually rotated up to 360° and tilted by 30° without compromising the recessed position of the lamp or the glare control. Aplis reflectors were developed in partnership with Bartenbach Lichtlabor. They are highly efficient with optimised glare control and balanced beam angles. Spot, flood or wallwasher reflectors are available to suit a great variety of applications. Aplis can be fitted with a range of lenses including soft edge outline and spread lens.
Aplis is designed for lightsources ranging from 20W to 100W. High efficiency aluminium reflectors for QT12-ax and HIT-TC are easy to install and provide great flexibility in lighting effects to suit any project requirements. The standard range is equipped with softening lens within an antiglare ring. Additional filters can be inserted in the same ring.
Aplis 80 is developed for QR-CBC51 and LED (2700k, CRI ≥80) light sources. Aplis 80 can be rotated up to 360° and tilted by 30° without compromising the recessed position of the lamp or the glare control. The luminaire can aim at both vertical and horizontal surfaces. Aplis 80 is equipped with a filter holder and antiglare ring.
Aplis 165 is developed for lightsources ranging from 20W to 100W. High efficiency aluminium reflectors for QT12-ax, HIT-TC and LED (2700k, CRI ≥80) are easy to install and provide great flexibility in lighting effects to suit any project requirement. The standard range is equipped with a softening lens within an antiglare ring. Additional filters can be inserted into the same ring.
