Loox LED: light and sound, the new dimension of furniture

In furniture design light and sound are often the first consideration when additional comfort and functionality are required. Häfele is introducing an innovative combination of both at SICAM: the third generation of its Loox LED lighting system with many new products, and a large quantity of new ideas and products on the subject of entertainment. The Loox drivers act as the perfect interface in these products. Both worlds are put in the right light – with perfect sound. Innovative modular system solutions impress with their quality and provide flexibility and design freedom. Extremely easy, tool-free assembly and convenient operation are other characteristics of the Häfele light and sound components.

The highlights for industrial applications are the modular, internationally certified 2025 LED lights for customized solutions. They consist of a standardised light housing with different light intensity for working and living areas. Like all Loox connections, the basic element has pluggable leads, and recess mounting and downlight rings in different shapes are also available. Customised ring shapes and colours can also be realised without problems. The lights are available in three light colours.

More life per square metre – Thinking ahead.

Häfele traditionally has concepts for realising integrated ideas in furniture manufacturing. These are particularly in demand for meeting the challenges of our time. In view of the increasing real estate prices around the world and the constantly decline in working and living space, the answer is to “Think ahead” for “More life per square metre”. The above-mentioned innovations make a contribution to this, as do new products from the IXconnect range of connectors and the conveniently and reliably configured and operated solutions involving the Dialock electronic access control system.
The Häfele exhibition team is looking forward to having a full house.
