The slim body of the freestanding Linetik LED luminaire has a cross-section of 24 x 24mm and a compact base. The optical system delivers light where it is needed without glare. The reflector for the direct light output delivers uniform illumination over the workplace. An extrusion lens handles the indirect output, spreading light over a wide ceiling area. Direct and indirect lighting elements can be individually controlled, and a motion sensor turns the luminaire off when workers are absent.

Zumtobel’s Sequence luminaire has a modular design that makes it possible for lighting to be personalised and controlled. It’s flexible enough to deal with workplaces that have different lighting requirements at different times. Sequence incorporates direct light from LEDs, and incorporates others behind an opal diffuser. Each linear luminaire contains either 8 or 14 modular sections with optics chosen to put the light where it’s needed. The modules are divided into groups with separate Dali addresses, so different parts of the luminaire can be dimmed independently.
