Intra Lighting has unveiled a ceiling lighting and acoustic system which is based on acoustic panels, 60 per cent of which comprises recycled material.

The Pyrymyd from Slovenia-based Intra is designed to reduce noise in office while providing a contemporary look with low-glare illumination.

The grey version is made from 60 per cent recycled material, while the light grey and black options are made of 28 per cent recycled material. The material – thermoformed acoustic felt with a sound absorbing surface – is all 100 per cent recyclable.

Intra says part of the appeal of the ceiling is that the luminaires can be randomised across the ceiling. It says it will achieve a unified glare rating of under 19 in a typical layout.

The system is modular and built up using 598mm x 598mm panels with either four, six or eight lights per panel. Each has a sound absorbing surface of 0.6 square metres.

The luminaire has a 33 beam angle shaped by an acrylic glare-free LFO lens, which was designed by the optics specialist Bartenbach. There’s a satined prismatic lens dome for uniform light distribution. Lumen packages are between 600lm and 800lm. For control, the system supports Casambi and DALI. The driver is remote. Colour rendering is CRI >90 with a two-step MacAdam ellipse.

Intra – founded by Marjeta and Marino Furlan in 1989 and headquartered in Šempeter pri Gorici, Slovenija is 100 per cent powered by green energy. It aims to have all of its energy powered by its solar panel installation by 2025. Other initiatives include the planting of over 2,000 trees, the use of rainwater harvesting and a standard seven-year warranty on its products.

The company also boasts that 97 per cent of its suppliers are based in Europe rather than is Asia, as is more typical with lighting manufacturers.
