IP44.de, the German outdoor lighting company, this year presented the luminaire series Gap. Gap is an up-downlight available either in horizontal, vertical, or square format. “Gap is a real lighting tool whose cubic shape creates completely new settings for the outdoors. The tilted surface allows precipitation to drain away through a gap, hence the name, so that it does not collect on the body of the luminaire.
The great popularity of the new anthracite, cool brown, and white colour shades shows that we are expanding our portfolio to meet the tones used in recent façade designs. The new materials in golden, copper, and brass colours are an exciting creative challenge for us as a design-oriented manufacturer, and are applicable in public buildings as well as in the private sector.
Our luminaires can be used to give a completely new definition to the visual statement of a building.”
