Luctra® by Durable, received a fantastic response to its showcase at Clerkenwell Design Week (24-26 May 2016). Featured in the Project Exhibition, Luctra® used the event to launch the eye-catching Flex lamp, a new human centric lighting solution that takes biological lighting to the next level of personalisation and mobility. Visitors were also able to interact with the full Luctra® range giving them the opportunity to understand the impact light can have on wellbeing and productivity within the workplace.

“We had a great time at Clerkenwell Design Week,” comments Sean Starkey, Managing Director of Durable UK. “Flex was the star of the show for us and everyone seemed to love it. Its ability to provide human centric task lighting wherever and whenever it is needed is virtually unique and we are looking forward to following up with everyone who visited the stand to discuss the possibilities for projects. It was our first time at the show and we will definitely be back again as it had a great community feel and was the perfect audience for Luctra®.” 

By utilising targeted changes of light colour, the Luctra® family of lamps are able to remedy deficits in melatonin and serotonin by helping to stabilise the human biorhythm, ensuring individuals are able to sleep well and feel more rested when carrying out their daily tasks. The stylish range has been researched, designed and manufactured to the highest standards in Germany and uses only the best materials to create its unique and eye-catching appearance. Luctra® is endorsed by Dr Dieter Kunz, an expert in the importance of light for health in light design, and its biologically effective light is able to closely replicate daylight, with its cold white and warm white LEDS that produce an illuminance of up to 1,000 lux and an impressive Kelvin level between 2,700K and 6,500K.

Visitors to the stand were able to see Flex, the rechargeable, cordless lamp that provides complete freedom to work anywhere without compromising the quality of light. The new luminaire has just won a prestigious 2016 Red Dot Award for Product Design. Also on show were the flagship Table and Table Pro models, which are available in three contemporary finishes of aluminium, black or white, and complemented by the geometric (linear) or rounded (radial) lamp head design. The individual or twin floor models were also showcased, which distribute perfectly even lighting from a maximum height of 1.8 metres. The twin lamp heads can also be adjusted independently to provide multiple users their own personal lighting sequence.

Every lamp in the range benefits from the innovative vitacore® electronic system. This technology offers users intuitive access to luctra® functions and the ability to control the brightness and colour of the light by simply placing a finger on the touch panel. A vitacore® app (not available on the Table or flex model) is also available on Apple and Android systems, allowing a fully adjustable 24-hour lighting sequence to be programmed to automatically vary the colour and intensity of light to simulate natural illumination through the course of the day.
