ONE LUMINAIRE, MANY OPTIONS. PARA.MI ENSURES OPTIMAL LIGHTING AND MAXIMUM INDIVIDUALITY IN THE OFFICE WITH A RANGE OF BASIC FORMS AND COLORS THAT CAN BE COMBINED FREELY.
Office environments today are characterized by flexibility, mobility, and new technologies. This is why suitable lighting concepts have to offer solutions for different zones and areas – attuned to work content, job profile, and the personal needs of the user.
“Only a change of perspective clears the way for something new,” says designer Burkhard Schlee of Schlee Design. With PARA.MI, the designer is setting new standards together with Waldmann in terms of bringing individuality to the table: The task luminaire allows individual elements and colors to be combined into one individual whole, however you want it. A round or square luminaire head, adjustable single or double arm, round or square base, and various connection possibilities for furniture, combined with high-quality surfaces. With PARA.MI, personal design features and adjustments for the modern office environment have no boundaries.
The characteristic joints are an especially attractive feature in an otherwise unobtrusive design: These maintenance-free, self-locking joints allow a high degree of adjustability. A bright LED lamp creates homogeneous, wide-angle task lighting. The neutral light is glare-free thanks to a specially developed reflector. In addition, with only 8 W of installed consumption, PARA.MI is an outstanding energysaving measure.
An ergonomically designed workplace is fundamental to keeping the employees in good health. Lighting has a part to play in this process. 80% of all information is processed visually. It is therefore all the more important that eyes are assisted with good lighting in order to work properly. Which in turn prevents 'backache' issues.
Lighting is a 'second-tier' (i.e. indirect) tool. It does not have a direct impact, but by reducing levels of eye fatigue (asthenopic effects), it does have an impact on the muscular-skeletal system. Lighting conditions have a significant influence on the prevention of eye strain and on our ability to maintain stress-relieving postures. Lighting does this by preventing the need for cramped physical postures adopted to correct poor conditions of visibility.
After a comprehensive series of tests, PARA.MI was awarded the quality emblem of Aktion Gesunder Rücken (AGR) e.V. as a particularly suitable component for an ergonomic office workplace that promotes good back posture. The requisite minimum requirements that any lighting system must meet in order to pass a AGR test can be found on the AGR website(External Link).
The AGR quality emblem has been defined by ÖKO-TEST as 'excellent'. This independent institution conducts thorough tests on the ergonomic product quality within several medical disciplines.
