Manta Rhei – kinetic luminaire
By combining cutting-edge OLED technology, electronics and control systems, luminaire manufacturer Selux and the ART+COM design studio have ushered in a new era in professional lighting. The result of the first study on kinetic luminaires is presented as “Manta Rhei” – a delicate OLED-based luminaire silently floating in space while continuously changing its appearance.
The newly created Manta Rhei is the first luminaire which is able to project lighting intensity onto a surface, adjusting its light output depending on the distance between individual luminaire components. The result is a luminaire that seems to be alive and features a number of technical highlights.
Tridonic's OLED modules were chosen because their OLEDs were able to impress in terms of colour rendering and design. Furthermore, their colour temperature is very constant, and the illuminated surfaces give a highly uniform impression. The LUREON REP modules were optimised in a way that the individual panels appear very delicate and, in switched-off mode, resemble tiny mirrors. Hence, Manta Rhei is an attractive eye-catcher in any room situation, even when switched off.
The LUREON REP modules used have a colour temperature of 4000 K and provide 40 lm/W. Further benefits are maximum utilisation of the illuminated surface and a CRI higher than 80. Each individual OLED can be controlled precisely in 65,000 levels of brightness. The constant illuminance level and natural movement patterns create a pleasant lighting atmosphere.
Thanks to the interplay of kinetic aesthetics and dynamic lighting, the lighting options are able to achieve a new quality. By integrating mechanical movement, the conventional typology of luminaire design has been extended, opening up new horizons for using organic light-emitting diode technology.
