Kreon: Purity, Simplicity and Lightness

We take a look at some of Kreon’s most iconic interior and exterior light fittings – designed to accent architectural details and beautify spaces with a natural glow.

Kreon: Purity, Simplicity and Lightness

Cloud by Frank Gehry


December 8th, 2016

Kreon produces architectural interior lighting products that quietly elevate interior and exterior spaces. With an array of downlights, uplights and sidelights that disappear into ceilings, doors and walls seamlessly, every design is guided by values of purity and simplicity. Its lighting forms draw inspiration from architectural shapes while focusing on functionality, illuminating spaces with a natural glow.

Cana is a recessed mounted light source that comes in round or square shapes. The highly versatile and fully adjustable piece can be combined with the best LED technology to create various compositions of light, shape and colour, adding rhythms and patterns to the ceiling plane. It fits into ceilings through slots that are internally black, creating an impression of depth.

For further flexibility, the slim Cana 40 has been expanded to offer both a surface mounted and pendant mounted version. Users can also fit the Holon 80 directional projector luminaire into the Cana 80 for accent lighting. For lighting designers, Cana is a customisable tool that can be used across most projects, be it residential, hospitality, retail or offices.

An outdoor piece, Raga is defined by a clean and basic structural form highlighted by a stylistic material identity. Combining precious stones and metals, the design is derived from an in-depth knowledge of stone craft traditions and functional ideals. Raga is offered in three unique styles.

Wabi is an outdoor projector that’s particularly ideal for residential projects. The compact light features a lamp head that can rotate 360-degrees and be inclined up to 90-degrees – easily set by adjusting the lockable indicators. When accompanied with optional installation accessories, Wabi can be adapted to a wide range of outdoor surfaces such as concrete, gravel and soil.

A Kreon design classic, Diapason has been modified slightly to meet today’s modern LED technology requirements, without losing the elegant contours and versatile principles that enable the light to tilt and rotate freely to accent architectural details. The redesigned version – made for LED light sources – offers greater flexibility, allowing designers to play with various colour temperatures, CRI characteristics, lenses, glare preventors and the best performing optics to accommodate various needs. There are three sizes available.

Frank Gehry developed Cloud in collaboration with Swiss company Belux, which has been acquired by Kreon. Inspired by actual clouds, this atmospheric light sculpture is made from a durable, high-tech material that enables each light source to be individually and uniquely sculpted. The seemingly delicate paper-like form is voluminous, concealing the light source while injecting spaces with a poetic quality. Cloud is Gehry’s first lighting collection for serial production, and is available in various sizes and models – suspension, standing, floor and table lamps.
