Imma – new urban/street luminaire
IMMA is the latest urban LED luminaire developed in iLumtech and manufactured by OMS Lighting ltd. Innovative in performance, IMMA features unique optical system provided by a single silicone lens. There is a variety of lenses offering different beam angles, ready to use.
This design oriented lumiaire is extremely compact in size, ideal for urban enviroments. The designer Anton Zetocha focused on dynamic shapes and curved lines. The free-form shape of the luminaire is only possible due to the unique lens system, because of its compact size. While using this technology, the designer has significantly more space in creating curved surfaces as to oposed to common flat PCBs with LEDs, requiring larger volumes. The design was developed in stages from sketches, 3d models to a full size styrofoam mock-up for evaluation. In later stages of the project, we used our in house 3D printer capability to create full size functional prototype for testing.
Succesfull cooperation with our mechanical designers was crucial for the transformation of the complex design proposal to a functional two shell aluminium body, fulfilling all requirements of a street luminaire.
The IMMA luminaire is a testimony to excellent cross department cooperation at all stages, blending first sketch of this product to the final, production grade result.
