Cielos by Zumtobel

Cielos is a modular ceiling or wall lighting system; it delivers light that is bright, glare-free from a wide area uniform surface.

Cielos is unique; it is designed to change colour on demand over the course of the day, essentially mimicking real daylight experiences. Dynamic and flexible, Cielos can be arranged singularly or as a cluster. Its low profile makes it ideal for many interior applications.

In the workspace this system compliments work activities, wide-area illumination makes reading and writing more comfortable. People respond differently to lighting situations. Cielos produces cool light that promotes activity and warm light that calms and adds concentration. Light becomes a persuasive seller, add colour to retail and showroom spaces to define product and activity areas.

Cielos is also available as CIELOS LED, acting like a giant TV screen it can be used as a tool to display logos, animations or movies. With Cielos the possibilities are endless.

Designed by Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners.

Update: The original designer of the CIELOS luminaire, Eoin Billings, has seperated from Grimshaw and founded BILLINGSJACKSONDESIGN. billingsjackson.com
