Modul R Project Family

Modul R Project Family: ‘Ceiling & suspended luminaires… have the shortest installation time of all surface-mounted luminaires: The 24 V direct installation version & the 230 V surface-mounted version can be quickly & efficiently installed & set up using the patented Nimbus magnetic fastening system & mounting ring: the luminaire is connected to the power supply by means of a special cable with a micro-plug protected against reverse polarity.’ /

Lady Jane Family

Lady Jane Family. Floorstanding luminaires designed by Sven von Boetticher / Nimbus: ‘The colourful fabric cable is plugged directly into the LED module & makes two separate components out of the head & the stand… this allows the user to simply detach the head &.. make a portable light out of the floor-standing luminaire that does not require a switch as Lady Jane features touchless control & dimming.’ /

Force One Family

Force One Family designed by Rupert Kopp / Nimbus: Floorstanding luminaires with a head that projects unusually far over the work surface and its base disappears almost entirely beneath the desk. In order to achieve this, the designer  integrated the technical units into the base although they are usually located in the head of luminaires. This made it possible to create an extremely thin head only 20 mls thick. The result is uniform, large-surface illumination of the work area.’ /

Rim R Wall luminaire designed by Sven von Boetticher / Nimbus: ‘A rotatable and tiltable.  Switchable or tube with integrated IR-sensor for touchless intuitive gesture dimming. A version with built in converter for connection to (existing) 230 V wall outlet.’ /

Eloise Family

Eloise Family. Floorstanding luminaires designed by Flo Schwab, Georg Panther / Nimbus: The tube of the reading luminaire interlocks with the ultra-slim LED luminaire head, which can be continuously rotated around its own axis. Eloise can be continuously dimmed via a touch-sensitive surface.  A going-to-bed function has been integrated that dims the luminaire within a period of three minutes before it ultimately automatically switches itself off.’ /

Light Control Family

Light Control Family – Wireless Light Control:  ‘LED luminaires can be controlled & dimmed via smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth 4.0.  You need the free Casambi app (available for iOS and Android) & an easy-to-integrate control unit for Nimbus LED luminaires.’
