Oct 26, 2017: Apure, an innovator and manufacturer of state-of-the-art architectural lighting, announced the launch of its new MINUS product series. With an ultra-thin profile for minimal recess and an almost imperceptible aperture, the MINUS is designed to enable higher ceilings and architectural flexibility.
The MINUS, designed by the renowned PORSCHE DESIGN STUDIO, combines performance with a clean, sophisticated aesthetic. It has proprietary precision optics engineered to distribute light very evenly without any glare. The fixture itself is invisible to the eye, a breakthrough in lighting technology. And it is available in two form factors; MINUS ONE, a round finish, and MINUS TWO, a square finish.
Designed to save overhead space, the MINUS addresses the trend for modern, higher ceilings. Its minimal recess requires just 3/4 inch (19mm) space enabling the raising of ceiling height. As well as being an ideal choice for new, modern construction projects, the MINUS can be installed with just furring strips, maintaining high ceilings in renovation projects or new constructions.
“MINUS is a high performance fixture that is designed to blend with its surroundings,” said Uli Petzold, Apure founder and CEO. “It offers architectural flexibility, enabling ceilings to be raised higher and delivering more natural light in hallways, bathrooms, kitchens and even over dining tables. Offices can now be illuminated with glare free lighting which boost the efficiency of employees. It’s a good option for renovations where architects are looking for a more modern environment, with space and a feel of natural light.”
The MINUS product is offered with a 2700K, 3000K, or 4000K CCT with 80 or 90 CRI. It is fully dimmable, flicker free down to 1% and using proprietary microchip technology boasts a lifetime of 50,000 hours at 100% (LM80). Lumen output from source is 1140 and 5 fixtures can be powered by one 100W transformer.
