Caimi Brevetti is continuing the research it began smore than five years ago in the field of acoustic design. Following the development of the patented technologies Snowsound and Snowsound Fiber, a new important step is Snowsound Lux, a new breakthrough both in acoustic design and in multifunctional fixtures. The new products of the collection –Oversize Lux and Giotto Lux– are respectively designed by Marc Sadler e Sezgin Aksu and integrate lighting and acoustic performances.
Focused on the holistic vision of environmental comfort, the Snowsound Lux project aims to develop sound-absorbing panels that not only screen out the unpleasant noise of many public and private spaces, but also embed a lighting source.
Caimi Brevetti’s entire line of production is predicated on a design concept that focuses on the wellness and comfort of its users, and the Snowsound Lux has now added the element of light into the existing element of sound to create an integrated audio-visual fixture.
Oversize Lux design by Marc Sadler
Oversize Lux aims to turn sound-absorbing panels made with Snowsound technology from purely functional fixtures into real pieces of furniture, suspended from the ceiling. The panels resolve three design challenges: how to provide ambient lighting, how to lower the ceiling and how to achieve acoustic comfort. A joined-up approach to dealing with these three challenges led to the creation of what are effectively architectural solutions consisting of sound-absorbing panels punctuated with recessed bays containing LED lighting points.
The panels are available in different colours and come in two sizes: 119cm x 119cm, and 119cm x 159cm. Likewise, the LED lighting is available either as an individual square spotlight or as a rectangular lamp. The ceiling suspension cables are adjustable.
Giotto Lux design by Sezgin Aksu
Giotto Lux is a sound-absorbing room fixture that uses Snowsound technology. It has a pure geometric form consisting of a circular panel 119 cm in diameter, at the centre of which is a 28W LED light covered by a satin-finished polyethylene diffuser. The result is a sculptural lighting element that fulfils two requirements: illumination and acoustic comfort.
It is available in different colours, and can be coordinated with Giotto Ceiling and Giotto Wall panels, which do not include inbuilt lighting.
