  • And a designer said Let there be light

    TREND / No.27 / 2012. “Light is the topic of a lifetime,” states Ján Štofko, one of the first designers at OMS.

    And a designer said Let there be light

    The leading Slovak producer of lighting belongs to the
    expanding group of Slovak companies that have realised the importance of design
    in the production cycle. Therefore, the company decided to not be just a
    manufacturing and assembly hall, but rather to build its own centre for
    research and development.

    In the beginning there was ray

    Modul Ray is a type of lighting that was developed
    according to Ján Štofko’s design and from the side it looks like a ray. He
    designed the prototype for his thesis at the Institute of Industrial Design at
    the Faculty of Architecture of Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava.
    Today, it is being mass produced on the OMS assembly line along with another
    type of lighting called Rebell by a young designer that won a major award in
    the product design category at last year’s National Prize for Design. The Modul
    Ray light concept corresponds directly with the functioning of the human body.
    It is configured so that the light intensity during the day adapts to the
    natural human biorhythm. It acts as a starter in the morning, it dims at noon
    and increases its intensity in the evening again, if necessary. The point is that
    the warm light is eye-closing and the cool light is, on the contrary,
    encouraging.

    Drawing the future

    The current trend in the production of lighting tends to
    focus on the elegance of shapes, colour of light mixing, and intelligent
    control of lighting systems. OMS’ philosophy has always been to set trends, not
    merely follow them. That is one of the reasons it creates business
    relationships with the best manufacturers from a technological point of view.
    The company’s focus on innovation is reflected in its “Future concepts”
    program, aimed at inspiring designers to think about the future of lighting
    technology.

  • Luminaires for interior lighting based on LED

    Světlo / No. 02 / 2010

    Luminaires for interior lighting based on LED

    Luminaires for interior lighting based on LED still have higher market share.

    The most frequently used light fixtures are the lamps designed for indoor lighting.

    An increasing number of our offices, schools, hospitals, corridors, lecture halls and even our houses are illuminated using indoor LED lighting. Nowadays, linear fluorescent lamps are used particularly for indoor lighting. Why are the linear fluorescent lamps so successful? It is evident from their numerous advantages. They have a higher specific power (reaching up to 110 lm/W for some versions), easy installation, long life, high-frequency operation, good colour rendition, and most importantly, they are fully dimmable. Dimming enables dynamic response to the needs of the illumination area.
