Product description

Designed to function as decorative elements, large-area lamps satisfy the highest standards both in terms of providing functional lighting and in terms of attractive design. Integrated as flush-mounted or freely suspended elements, these lamps are set apart by their innovative, ultra-flat design. The minimum use of forms on this light fixture makes it possible to mix and match various dimensions and geometries (round, rectangular or oval). This versatility allows the customer to implement virtually any shape of their choosing, such as the geometric copy of tables or counters in meeting rooms or foyers. Depending on the selected material, the large-area lamp may also function as a sound absorber. The efficiency of the system is elevated further by its low cost of maintenance and operation. Their unique characteristics enable these lamps to create light effects of various types and open up a whole new range of creative design options for many representational areas.

Concept

The expectations as to what qualifies as a well-designed room have increased dramatically - especially when it comes to office and work environments, educational buildings and function rooms. Today, rooms are not only supposed to serve a specific purpose but are also expected to be comfortable and inspire motivation. One factor of principal importance in this regard is how the occupants in the room experience light and sound. Textile materials offer innumerable options to merge the requirements on the acoustics in the room with the expectations the occupants have in terms of modern interior design. For instance, high-performance membranes can be incorporated as versatile design elements capable of heightening ambience, absorbing sound and using light for illumination and dramatic effects.

Koch Membranen owes their ability to develop their own translucent and sound-absorbing membrane materials to the know-how they have accumulated over long decades of operating in the textile architecture business. The company's light and acoustic fabrics Artex®, Helioflon® and Siglatex® are used as part of lightweight and intricate shapes in construction systems and standard products. Thanks to the materials' negligible own weight and largely pre-assembled ceiling systems, sails, umbrellas or baffles, installing the systems is fast and easy. They are equally well suited for new construction and renovations as well as expansions. All systems are scalable to satisfy individual requirements and can be used in a large variety of shapes and design options. The innovative membranes never fail to create stylish designs and attractive solutions for interior rooms that are flooded with light and offer optimised sound absorption.

Apart from such standard products as acoustic sails and column cladding solutions, we increasingly engineer customised solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of architects and builders with discriminating requirements.
