Villingen-Schwenningen, 11 March 2016  

Hess GmbH Licht + Form, an internationally leading manufacturer of designed outdoor luminaires and street and site furnishings based in Villingen-Schwenningen (Germany), will exhibit the future of urban lighting and space design – in 3D and live – at the world's leading trade fair Light + Building in Frankfurt. In Hall 5.0, Stand A60, innovative products and solutions for the holistic design of urban spaces in a unique and typical Hess design will be presented. Accordingly, the trade fair stand forms an urban environment in the form of a city backdrop. 

ARINI – light, multifunction and design for the urban jungle of today and tomorrow

The absolute highlight will be the world premiere of ARINI: A new lighting system that combines light and multifunctionality with an extraordinary design inspired by nature. A lighting system that is based on the organic form of a parrot and also has the diversity and impressions of nature as its model.

ARINI opens up all new design and application possibilities for urban structures – and is as varied, as intelligent and as colourful as a parrot. Diverse because ARINI offers all new possibilities for designing with light. Intelligent because ARINI can see, communicate, entertain and inform. And colourful since, with ARINI, more than accents can be set during the day and at night.

In this way, ARINI lends character to urban spaces and squares in the dark with various lighting moods and effects and transforms them into places full of atmosphere. With its multifunctionality, ARINI stands for a modern togetherness and ensures that urban spaces become attractive meeting places and areas with a feel-good ambience. Areas with a high level of security, communication and networking.

In addition to the organic form, the striking details make ARINI a real work of art: The rear part of the luminary head for example, can be equipped with RGBW lighting. And the ARINIs are – just as the models that inspired them and typical of Hess – available in almost all desired colours. Whether "tone on tone" or with deliberate contrast colouring. Colourfulness, just the way you want it. 

CITY ELEMENTS – Multifunctionality at its best

CITY ELEMENTS are also perfect for those who want more than just light. In addition to the pure illumination function thanks to individually combinable elements and heights of up to 9 metres, the multifunctional and timeless illuminating column system also offers versatile additional solutions for inner-city requirements – such as electricity and water supply as well as WLAN. Furthermore, attractive light projections can be realised and a camera may be installed in security sensitive areas. The CITY ELEMENTS from Hess stand for the most diverse multifunctionality - at its best.

ACCADIA – The new dimension of revolutionary LED in-ground luminaires

With the revolutionary LED in-ground luminaire family ACCADIA, for the illumination of façades and wall accenting, Hess sets new standards in the low-power segment of architectural lighting. The innovative reflectors, in combination with expertise in lighting technology, ensure that the asymmetrical versions of the ACCADIA line generate completely glare-free indirect light. In addition to extremely homogeneous light distribution, the clear design and the intrinsic value of ACCADIA fulfil the highest requirements.

In addition, a variety of further product highlights from the extensive Hess portfolio is presented. These include the new and versatile VARESE pole top mounted luminaire, the DALVIK LED design luminaire as well as a selection from the VAREDO collection – a generation of luminaires and street and site furnishings that enable maximum flexibility when it comes to designing urban spaces.
