The heart of the Berker Crystal Ball, in turn, is a multi-faceted, polished Swarovski crystal under which a touch-sensitive optical reflection sensor is concealed. A gentle touch – and the Crystal Ball operates lights, blinds, shutters, the bubble machine… At the same time, it is a glimmering attention-getter in every sophisticated environment.

Airflite KINZO pays tribute to Ken Adams set design of “Dr. Strangelove“. With its giant diameter of 2.20 metres the parallels between Airflite and the typical lighting of the legendary War Room in Stanley Kubrick’s satire become obvious.
Inside the four circle segments, cleverly arranged dimmable fluorescent tubes create an intelligent light distribution – 70% of light shine upwards to be reflected by the ceiling, 30% shine downwards.

Hannes Wettstein has designed a family of lights called Scope which perfects the principle of balance. With “easy move”, Belux developed and patented a new type of completely invisible balance mechanism. Where other work lights make the mechanism visible, in Scope this is accommodated invisibly in the interior of the upper and lower arm: “I wanted to impart something magical in form to the magic operating mode”, explains Wettstein.
Scope has proved to have gentle adjustability but still remains stable in any position. The ingenious balance and high agility of the lights challenge you to plumb the large working radius – deep and long tables can also be optimally illuminated.
