VAERO / Waveguide luminaire


Discipline: Product

Smoothing light for people and rooms - with VAERO Hartmut S. Engel designed a perfect light for all kinds of office layouts, it meets the need for prestigious lighting and wellbeing. VAERO can be positioned anywhere, regardless of the way workstations are arranged, and ensures reflection-free light for screen-work. Minimalist shapes and a translucent housing produce a low-profile visual effect and give the impression of a floating luminaire. A folding wing on top of the luminaire allows selective control of the lighting effect. With a light output ratio of more than 80% VAERO is a high efficient lighting solution.
