Efficient lighting with variable light control

When Dörken Coatings GmbH & Co. KG moved into new, modern offices in Herdecke, North-Rhine Westphalia, they were faced with the task of finding suitable lighting. The solution they chose was LUCTRA® VITAWORK®.

Iserlohn, Germany, 9 February 2021: In 2020, Dörken Coatings GmbH & Co. KG moved into a new, modern office building. The challenge in planning and selecting an appropriate lighting solution was to create a balanced combination of ambient lighting for the premises as a whole, as well as user-oriented lighting in specific places. After careful consideration, LUCTRA® VITAWORK® was chosen to achieve this goal. “When it comes to designing office lighting, the key aspects are compliance with occupational health and safety requirements on the one hand, and user-friendly operation on the other. The efficiency of the lighting combined with the variable lighting control was what won us over,” explains Esther Straube, Head of Facility Management at Dörken.
LUCTRA® VITAWORK brings the latest LED technology to the workplace. The LEDs built into the lamp head provide energy-efficient illumination via a light panel with either symmetrical or asymmetrical light distribution. VITAWORK® is therefore also suitable for illuminating larger and more spacious offices. The LUCTRA® floor lamp fulfils the requirements of both the DIN EN 12464-1 standard and the German workplace ordinance ASR 3.4.

Additional sensor control saves energy
VITAWORK® lighting technology is controlled by both light intensity and presence sensors, as well as being operated by a touch panel. While the presence sensor responds to movements, the light intensity sensor continuously compares the natural daylight and the intensity of lighting inside the room with each other. The LED light of VITAWORK® adjusts itself automatically to achieve consistent, high-quality lighting. Depending on the office environment, the sensor control reduces energy consumption by up to 80 percent.

Timeless design
VITAWORK® adopts the unobtrusive, functional design of the LUCTRA® family. With its focus on the quality of light, the design has deliberately done away with superfluous aesthetic elements. The lamp’s clean lines fit perfectly into every interior design and give it added value.
The lamp head has deliberately been kept as flat as possible and is surrounded by an edge profile. The lamp head’s centre of gravity is located very close to the lamp mast and thus provides optimal stability both structurally and visually.
The flush-mounted touch panel with a high-quality plastic surface is clearly structured. The lamp can be dimmed variably in the upward and downward direction. The structural design of the lamp base fulfils vital functions such as optimal weight distribution and complies with anti-tilt standards.
All materials used underline the high quality standard and can be recycled.
