“LIGHT UP YOUR CREATIVITY“, this is Domus Line’s claim for Interzum 2023, the summary of a package of innovations that aims to stimulate the creativity and imagination of the company’s commercial and industrial partners, in keeping with its broader re branding plan.
A project that takes shape in a vision where light becomes a creative element as well as a functional one. With the lighting design solutions for furniture proposed by Domus Line, it is possible to create environments that reflect the lifestyles of those use them, in which light helps to define the spaces and moods.
This innovative approach makes it possible to transform luminaires from simple accessories into creative elements that express the user’s own personality and how they experience the home, adding originality and harmony to living spaces.
To go beyond boundaries, conventions and conceptual schemes. These are the objectives of the SYSTEMA project, a name that encapsulates the essence of a proposal which transforms an everyday action – arranging things, tidying them up – into a holistic and transversal proposal – a luminous furniture system.
The result of the partnership between Domus Line and the architect Andrea Federici, at the heart of SYSTEMA is the holistic vision of design, offering infinite dimensional configurations and functional combinations of an object that focuses on the person and his or her behaviour but also on the environment in which it will be installed and used, with the aspiration of offering everyone an optimal experience.
SYSTEMA is a configuration created from a single linear structural profile that can be applied to any wall – masonry, plasterboard, wood, metal – guaranteeing installation without visible screws. The structural profile has been designed to feature an upper light chamber with recessed optics that, by concealing the focal point, cancel the glare effect. The diffusers, in diffusing opal methacrylate, run along the entire length of the profile, offering a combination of wall washing light projection on the upper side and functional light projection on the lower side.
The single and dual-colour D-Motion light sources can be controlled independently or synchronously, along with the colour temperature control or selection for configuring SYSTEMA D-Motion. SYSTEMA can be configured with a range of accessories developed specifically for the kitchen, and designed in detail to best meet the various needs, guaranteeing maximum efficiency in the different areas of use. These include NETY, a power control and distribution unit that includes a power supply for the LED light sources, two power sockets, two USB-C sockets and two touch dimmer switches.
NETY, like each of the SYSTEMA accessories, can be attached to the groove of the structural profile with a simple gesture, allowing configurations according to specific requirements of space organisation and function. SYSTEMA, a single profile that transcends conventions and the traditional boundaries between luminaire and furnishing accessory, resulting in an interior lighting collection that combines design and architecture, functionality and lighting dimension, services and creativity.
SUNUP is a concept product that reinterprets rear-shelf lights to create a system that projects mood lighting. SUNUP is a lighting language that develops on indirect light beams, and can be configured with elements used freely and creatively in any space.
An elementary principle that generates an open system using just a few basic modules to create lighting above, below or radial to the installation surface. SUNUP can be installed in glass, wood or metal shelves. With their precise geometric proportions, SUNUP modules can be combined together to create infinite light structures, whether essential or more complex, linear or even curved.
The idea of SUNUP is combined with the Domus Line opto-electronic skills, to define an innovative construction principle that offers comfortable, continuous light. It is a minimal presence that embodies the highest innovation, in terms of opto-electronics, patented mechanics and control. The system can be controlled from the DOMUS4U App to create freedom of design not only in terms of shape but also for the definition of dynamic performance that can be programmed or changed in real time.
ANDY is a linear lighting system designed for application on grooves under the kitchen top and plinth. It consists of an extruded aluminum profile, which can house the FLEXYLED SE H4-24 light source in both the single and dual-colour D-Motion versions. The ANDY configuration includes two types of angles, internal at 90° for standard kitchen composition against the wall and external at 90° for islands.
Closing heads (right and left) are also supplied which allow to hide the tail of the power cable, which comes out both radially and axially to the installation plane, inclined by 90° on the side rear. The installation can be carried out with double-sided adhesive directly on the groove profile or on the plinth, or with coupling springs developed on request.
NEXUS is a micro profile designed for do-it-yourself configuration, making it easy to achieve linear lighting solutions customised ‘to the millimetre’ for both recessed and surface installation. The collection, consisting of a universal profile in extruded aluminium, two types of opalescent diffuser shields, six different sensors and installation accessories, can be used to create configurations for both in-wall and under-cabinet application, recessed in blind or through grooves, and surface installed with the option of anodised aluminium or matt black finishes.
The opalescent polycarbonate diffuser shields, one for configuring the profile for recessed installation – with a covering ridge on the edges of the groove – and one to configure the profile for surface installation, couple with the aluminium profile to ensure a solid attachment and a perfect fit, without, however, complicating the decoupling of the components.
NEXUS can be configured with six different 6mm light sources with single-colour and dual-colour D-Motion adhesive base, medium and high linear density with Osram energy-saving or energy-efficient LEDs. All sources are supplied in ten- or twenty-metre reels that can be cut to length and connected to the power cable equipped with the new CH6 pressure connector.
The sensors are built in to the profiles and are supplied as standard with power cable and connector for quick connection to light sources. Available in both recessed and surface-mounted configurations, they allow the switching on and off, dimming (SD – dimmer switch) and colour temperature selection (SD D-M only for dual-colour D-Motion sources) with a simple touch of the sensor, or for inside-cabinet installation with automatic switching on and off (PIR Sensor).
The NEXUS collection is completed by closure heads in a neutral finish and universal figure for recessed installation on blind and through grooves, and in a coloured finish (aluminium and black) for surface installation, as well as fixing clips that allow the luminaire to be disassembled or removed from the groove easily and with no need for tools.
WAVE is an exclusive, patented Domus Line project inspired by the most innovative headlight units of the automotive sector with dynamic switching on. The WAVE technology applied to Domus Line’s dual-colour D-Motion perimeter light sources allows for progressive and synchronised switching on of all the luminaires connected to a common dedicated control system.
The dynamic nature of the light arouses an emotion that is capable of releasing a sense of surprise and beauty. The added value brought by the WAVE technology to the luminaires means being able to offer the market a solution that is not only innovative but also distinctive. The WAVE configuration applied to the luminaires of the UNIKA D-MOTION and HOLL D-MOTION collection is developed by combining a luminaire that integrates a dedicated switch with the slaves.
The TDM (Touch Dimmer Master) switch allows the progressive and synchronised switching on of all the light sources, and their switching off in reverse sequence. It can also be used to regulate brightness and to select the colour temperature of the individual luminaire and those connected to the output cable of the master luminaire.
