Nimbus rounds off its range of cableless luminaires with the smartlooking Gravity CL – and provides maximum flexibility in lighting design.
Nimbus is forging ahead with the development of cableless light – with great fervour and great success. Following on from the award winning Winglet CL, Roxxane Leggera CL and Roxxane Fly CL luminaires, the Gravity CL is now the fourth cableless, batterypowered luminaire in the Stuttgart-based enterprise's portfolio. The smart suspended luminaire has a high-performance rechargeable battery and gives up 100 hours of soft, pleasantly glare-free and homogeneous light.
The cableless, battery-powered Gravity CL was presented as a vision for the future – now the puristic suspended luminaire has reached full maturity and become the fourth cableless luminaire in the Nimbus Group portfolio. The Gravity CL provides an extremely flexible and unconventional lighting solution, e.g. for people in rented apartments who are looking for high-quality lighting and often change around the interior or move frequently. The Gravity CL will also appeal to those who shy away from a complex subsequent installation but still want optimal lighting.
The Gravity CL seems to hover in space on an elegant wire. "It's bound to take a while until people understand that the gossamer-thin wire DOES NOT carry current and that its sole purpose is to suspend the luminaire," chuckles inventor and company founder Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl, who, together with the designer Rupert Kopp, developed the Gravity to the point of marketability. Breaking away from dependence on fixed power outlets was the major factor in the company's desire to advance the "cableless" cause – with great fervour and also with great success: “For the first time ever, people are free to choose where they place and how to position the lighting in their home," says Brennenstuhl.
