Minimalism and Magic - New Members of the Nimbus Q Four Family: Q Four TT, Q Four IN and Q Four Track

Minimalism and Magic - New Members of the Nimbus Q Four Family: Q Four TT, Q Four IN and Q Four Track The new members of the Nimbus Q Four family of luminaires – Q Four TT, Q Four IN and Q Four Track – display an excellent, almost "magical" lighting effect. Nimbus's core idea with the Q ONE and Q Four ceiling luminaires was to create a lighting kit for high-quality, focused light. The first Q One and Q Four models were launched two years ago. Now three further versions have been added to the Q Four family of luminaires: the tilting and turning Q Four TT spotlight, the Q Four IN for flush mounting on the ceiling and the Q Four Track, which is mounted on a conductor rail. One reason for their excellent light quality is the Bartenbach LFO lens, which focuses light on the surface to be illuminated in a targeted manner. As Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl, CEO of the Nimbus Group, stated: "A light from an invisible source that immediately lends the illuminated object a certain magic. Read more »
