The MONDANA, which was created by the industrial designer Hartmut S. Engel, combines the gentle, glare-free, direct light of the ultrathin diffuser with skilfully designed reflections … thus creating something hauntingly beautiful: a playful lightness of light and form in a weightless, almost sensual dance.
The phenomenon MONDANA gives the phrase "circle of influence" a completely new meaning: with the greatest of ease, the luminaire tricks the eye of the beholder and appears as a floating circle with an impressively homogeneous luminous effect. At the same time, its indirect light illuminates the basic reflection surface and emphasises its colouring and texture. This wall and ceiling luminaire, which has won several international design awards, thus serves architecture as a valuable design element. With its traditionally perfect workmanship, MONDANA combines these high design standards with state-of-the-art lighting technology and pioneering efficiency - with the LED variants of the series, energy savings of up to 80 per cent are possible compared to their conventional counterparts. The uniquely flat diffusers of this series are optionally produced from hand-blown 3-layer opal glass with satin finish, or from shockproof polyethylene, with an opal satin finish; they are available in various diameters up to 550 millimetres. The protection class IP 65 provides secure protection from rain and humidity and keeps the luminaire free from dirt and insects. Pressure compensation and the reduction of condensation are guaranteed by the Gore™ membrane valve. The generously dimensioned cable routing compartment and the practical screw-on fitting make positioning, installation and lamp changes simple and easy.
