The darklight reflector combines maximum visual comfort with an optimum light output ratio.
Quintessence recessed luminaires now take the visual comfort and the light quality of downlights, wallwashers and directional luminaires into the outdoor area. The new optical systems of the downlights and wallwashers achieve high uniformity with good glare control, making them superb for extensive illumination in large areas. The exceptionally wide light distribution of the downlights with a 90° emission angle and a 40° cut-off produces highly uniform and glare-free light, with luminaires that are spaced far apart. For precise accentuation, the optical system of the directional luminaires can be tilted by 20° and rotated through 360°. With a protection rating of IP65, Quintessence recessed luminaires are the efficient lighting tool for perception-orientated lighting concepts in outdoor areas with canopies and for indoor applications that call for a high degree of protection against moisture and dust.

Quintessence directional luminaires accentuate artwork, products and architectural details effectively. The ideal angle of tilt (α) for this is around 20°. The object is modelled without distorting the effect as a result of excessive shadowing. It also prevents shadows cast by the observer.
