The new Nimbus Q One and Q Four provide brilliant light from "behind the scenes" – and perfectly complement the Modul Q 36 and Cubic ranges.

Light quality is tested by the Nimbus product development team. Nimbus coined the phrase "light from behind the scenes" for the specific lighting effect of Q One and Q Four: the light source retreats into the background, pure light takes centre stage." title=

Extremely elegant housing contours and excellent, directed light: these are the outstanding features of the Q One and Q Four, two new products from Nimbus. With their total glare suppression, the luminaires remain almost invisible and provide light from "behind the scenes". Within the range of exquisitely minimalistic Nimbus ceiling luminaires, they perfectly complement the proven Modul Q 36 Frame and Cubic 36 Frame models, which have exactly the same outer dimensions and, in contrast to the new products, emit a uniform or diffuse light. "An extension of our lighting toolbox for designers and architects." That is how Nimbus CEO Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl characterised the new luminaires. A holistic lighting solution from a single source.

There is growing demand for a uniform lighting concept with perfectly harmonised products: the modern trend is away from the traditional layout of defined rooms and towards a transitional flow in function: there is a merging of kitchen and living space, and the transition from living to working is becoming increasingly permeable. Consistent lighting design must take all these requirements into consideration and offer an appropriate solution in each of the individual areas. The Q One and Q Four direct-beam ceiling luminaires are available in recessed and surface-mounted versions, and close a gap in Nimbus's existing luminaire portfolio. They skilfully implement the requirement for directed light and provide light from "behind the scenes".


With a precise cone of brilliant light, Q One and Q Four showcase defined areas with pinpoint accuracy. The light source retreats into the background and blends in with the surrounding space. The two new models display the characteristic Nimbus minimalistic design and can be used in living spaces, kitchens, galleries, medical practices, hotels, restaurants and offices. The compact modules are made of aluminium in elegant matt black or matt white. They feature built-in, top-quality precision lenses with either one or four high-performance LEDs.
Nimbus CEO Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl characterises the new products thus: "The light emitted is of extraordinary brilliance. The intensity and power with which it strikes surfaces and objects come as something of a surprise – while at the same time it also radiates an impressive warmth and cosiness."


Q One and Q Four deliver brilliant accentuating light with pinpoint accuracy at a beam angle of 40° or 80°, thus complementing the proven Modul Q 36 Frame and Cubic 36 Frame used for uniform or diffuse general lighting. That means it is now possible to meet all lighting requirements in a room with Nimbus products and to realise harmonious lighting from a single source. Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl: "Our goal was to complete our toolbox for lighting designers with Q One and Q Four."
