As trivial as it sounds, a great luminaire starts with a great light source. We, at LED Linear™, consider this aspect to be the key to a unique lighting experience. We carefully select the best LED packages available in terms of quality and reliability. Using our state-of-the-art Reel-to-Reel (R2R) process production lines, these LEDs are soldered automatically in a precise manner with numerous in-line inspections. This production process offers LED tapes without stairway-high loss-effect between cut lengths and improved mechanical stability due to homogeneous flexible material compared to sheet-to-sheet or rigid PCB light modules.
NanoRay is a new technology enabling the engineering and the production of nano structured optics. The size of the structures is comparable to 1/10 of a human hair which enables an absolute control of the lighting distribution, as well as the color over angle. In order to get these new optics to work at their best, the smallest possible light source is needed. LED manufacturers offered the perfect solution: Chip Scale Package LEDs (CSP). This new generation of LEDs is only 1 x 1 mm and offers many advantages such as better thermal management. That means a better lifetime and an outstanding color rendition performances compared to previous technologies. With the newest generation of LED – CSP which have a better CRI and R9 value we could start to use these optics. Thanks to this combination LED Linear™ was able to shrink the footprint of their luminaires while improving its performances.

Imposing staging of a wall of light: With its luminous light wall, the Marriott Hotel in Berlin presents a concentrated moment of architectural introspection in a highly dynamic environment - both inside and out. The 30-metre high and 10-metre wide luminous light wall is vertically structured by an architectural grid in front of it. The wall itself consists of 72 individual panels made of expanded copper mesh that appear to glow from within thanks to LED lights mounted on the sides. Illuminated by grazing light, the panels suggest spatial depth across the entire wall. On closer inspection, the scene transforms into a diffuse image that defies precise interpretation. The visual impression varies depending on the position of the viewer in the room. Depending on the angle of view, different image compositions emerge that are reminiscent of moving cloudscapes. A lighting control system supports the installation with a variety of individual lighting scenarios. This project shines with a lighting-technically sophisticated backlighting. The ULTIMA-S NANO luminaire with narrow beam characteristics served as the light source. A total of 152 luminaires in special lengths were installed in the light wall. Since the entire installation depends heavily on the viewing angle, the luminaires had to be mounted in such a way as to create an absolutely uniform surface across the wall. The lighting design comes from the pen of Licht Kunst Licht and convinces with ULTIMA through a clear and homogeneous lighting atmosphere without disturbing effects. Read more.
