Light that is never static and never indicates any symmetry: the APHRODITE LED luminaire combines light, colour and movement in a fascinating manner, allowing to impressively set façades and rooms to the centre stage.

Based on the lighting spectacles found in nature and the biorhythm concept devised by designer Nik Schweiger, the LED spotlight typically provides emotive lighting scenes.
In the process, the benefits of LED technology show to particular advantage. Unceasing yet non-repetitive lighting projections are made possible by a specially developed LED module with a motor-driven glass cylinder. A choice of seven pre-defined lighting scenes with three speeds and various dimming levels is available. They create lighting scenarios from functional white light in various colour temperatures, combined with emotive coloured light from red, blue and amber LEDs. The spotlight is operated manually via two momentary-action switches installed directly on the spot, or digitally via DMX protocol. Thanks to IP 65 protection and high resistance against chemical impact, APHRODITE is an eye-catcher also in wellness areas, inviting people to relax.

Sometimes the most highly evolved designs are incomplete. When conceptualising the new Suncorp headquarters in Sydney, the interiors team at Geyer worked to the idea of ‘designing to 80%’. The result is a radical take on the oft-used idea of workplace flexibility. While the building caters to the needs of its residents in the present, it comprehensively avoids dictating what these needs will be in the future.
