Light + Building 2018

A sneak peek of what you can expect from some of this year’s exhibitors at Light + Building 2018…



Nedap will officially launch its ‘Welcome to the connected world of Nedap’ campaign at this year’s Light + Building event in Frankfurt am Main. As part of the campaign, the company will reveal a range of new features for its Luxon connected light management platform. Nedap will also present its proven project methodology and its opportunities for the lighting market.








First developed as a custom product, Lander is a bollard designed by architect Renzo Piano for the park of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation in Athens. This product is characterised by a specific light emission focused on the paths, with road (ST1) and asymmetrical optics. The wall washer version has an optical compartment aligned with the body of the product resulting in exceptional vertical lighting. The range also includes an applique version for direct or direct/ indirect light emission, with the possibility of choosing between more comfortable or more powerful optics. Lander is a sturdy system that meets the most stringent anti-vandalism criteria, combined with minimal, versatile and extremely elegant design.




New Casambi sensors from DANLERS

DANLERS have launched a new range of sensors for presence detection and light level control which can be integrated in systems with the Casambi wireless lighting control technology.

DANLERS sensors communicate directly with Casambi compatible luminaires via Bluetooth. No additional hardware components or control lines are required saving time and money.

Suitable for a wide range of applications including commercial, industrial and public sectors.

Walky, winner of the Design Plus awards, is an extraordinary collection of miniaturised devices starting from 45mm in height. Choose between round, square and rectangular; flush and surface mounted. Walky was born from the idea that iGuzzini’s excellent vertical lighting skills could be transferred into horizontal applications. Walky’s new optic distributes perfect horizontal light: precise, pure and shadow free cones near the wall, and perfectly uniform light along the entire surface in question. Maximum visual comfort and the possibility of Dali dimming for flush-mount versions. Walky was designed to resist to vandalism, and offers complete protection even during the installation.
