Verbatim unveils discrete anti-glare UGR<19 downlight with beautiful light distribution

The elegant downlight with its innovative and unique “trumpet” reflector shape has been designed by German lighting designer Arne Fiedler in collaboration with Mitsubishi Chemical’s R&D team, and produces low glare lighting (UGR<19) in accordance with EN 12464-1 making it a very comfortable luminaire for working and living environments.  The precisely curved design of the reflector not only delivers a calm and nearly invisible appearance on the ceiling surface, it also minimises optical loss resulting in an efficacy of up to 110lm/W.  The special trumpet design delivers a clean, homogenous light distribution of a quality and type normally associated with more upscale and expensive lightsources.
