Reading recipes, examining fresh food, cutting fruit and vegetables, checking measuring level markings, presenting prepared food or attractively setting off the kitchen itself. This always involves light. It needs to illuminate the worktop with naturally looking bright and even light, ensure an authentic rendering of food colours, be versatile and permanently ready. To meet these demands in the best way possible, D-Leuchten, a department of D-Beschlag GmbH, Luckenwalde, has modelled its recessed lights from the „D-Puc“ range on nature. At Sicam from 10 to 13 October 2017 in Pordenone, the company will be presenting enhanced and newly developed products from this domain as inspiration for modern kitchen architecture.
They answer to the names of „D-Puc“, „D-Puc II“, „D-Puc Star“ and „D-Puc Saturn“. The recessed lights D-Leuchten is presenting at Sicam on its stand A 34 in hall 9 not only show the product family they belong to by their round design. All of them also share the same hole diameter of 58 to 60 mm and are installed quickly and easily thanks to a spring and the power-supply cable that plugs directly into the light.
The „D-Puc Star“ works like a star. A reflector inside increases the beam angle of the light which is generated from three watts and evenly bathes the work surface in pleasantly bright light through a clear glass lens. Its flush-fitting lens and homogeneous light give the „D-Puc Star“ an understated and purist look.
With the 3.5-watt „D-Puc II“, in contrast, the lens is opaque and stands proud of the metal enclosure. The reason: the satin-finish glass meets today’s expectation of concealing the fact that this is where 42 LEDs are at work. It also generates a soft, pleasant light.
Striking is the look of the „D-Puc Saturn“, an interpretation of its ringed planet namesake. It has evolved from the „D-Puc II“. The additional metal ring acts as a heat sink, allowing the „D-Puc Saturn“ to deliver a higher light output from 5.5 watts.
Using its metalworking expertise, D-Beschlag produces the metal enclosures of all three recessed lights itself at its production facility in Luckenwalde, Germany. This permits a wide range of surface-finishing options: from the classic brushed stainless-steel look and on-trend aluminium and bronze-coloured anodised coating to special customised solutions. As a source of light, D-Beschlag only uses LED, achieving a colour rendering index (CRI) of 90 and higher.
