Àngels Cornellana Morros, CMO Nordeon: ‘We are proud that our Baldur has earned such a prestigious Dutch Design Award. As the inventors of the light line system, with more than 40 years’ experience, and with the insights from design agency VanBerlo, we’ve created an unbeatable third generation light line system, specially designed for LED. Baldur, named after the Nordic God of Light and Beauty, has an attractive aesthetical design, is number one in adaptability, and provides the best light for every application (industry, retail, and office). Our solution offers a unique 2 years payback time always with German quality’.
Design & development director Roelof van Driel: ‘VanBerlo is proud to have contributed to the innovative, modular LED lighting system from Nordeon. The design team helped the client to develop a versatile lighting solution with a distinctive, state-of-the-art design’. According to Van Driel, during the design process special attention was paid to the use and ease of installation of the system.
Nordeon’s Baldur LED light line system is an example of energy saving and minimised installation and maintenance costs. The modular rail lighting support system allows users to create well-lit project spaces and easily change set ups if desired. Due to the high luminous efficacy of 125 lumens per watt customers can achieve up to 80% in energy savings. Including intelligent solutions, like daylight and presence sensors, the savings can be even higher. At Nordeon, we design for 2 years pay back time and our products are Made in Germany. We aim to make top quality affordable for everyone, to enable a rapid adoption of the LED energy saving technology.
Baldur is different from other lighting solutions:
- Easy assembly
- Easily adjustable spotlights, general lighting, emergency lighting and lighting controls
- Six optimised lighting distributions for various applications from industry to retail food and fashion and even office, especially with the recessed Baldur solution
- Minimised and harmonised dimensions between general lighting and spots; drivers are hidden in the rail
- 2 years pay back time on the basis of energy, and maintenance savings
