The ARCOS Advantage

ARCOS lights strike the perfect balance between sleek aesthetics and a subtlety required by high-end exhibition spaces.

The ARCOS Advantage


July 30th, 2009

ARCOS truly understands how to light exhibits in way that emphasises beauty while focusing all attention on the piece displayed.

Utilising a minimalist design which comprises a simple cylindrical body and discreet cube-shaped insert for the control gear, this light has clearly been planned to humbly pass credit to exhibited work. ARCOS’s sleek lines and contours give it a professional appearance suited to any space.

Designed by David Chipperfield with Zumtobel, the team “wanted to create a product together that would not only be installed by museum directors for high quality exhibition spaces but by [them]selves as well.”

The resulting light presents restrained design qualities that achieve the discrete appearance appropriate for galleries and top end display venues.

In fact, every element of the ARCOS design respectfully pays tribute to the company’s years of experience with museum and exhibition architecture.

ARCOS is available in four different sizes, features advanced lighting technology and is available with a broad range of accessories.
