Lighting comfort above all
Pipistrel, production hall in Gorizia, Italy
is an internationally renowned aircraft producer, whose products set new aviation standards on a world scale. For the production of their famous
and innovative electric aircrafts, this propelling Slovenian company built a
new production unit in Italy
For their new building, they wanted a top-level design combined with technological perfection so as to provide an excellent working environment.
Architects created a large open space where the combination of natural and artificial light guarantee the desired quantity and quality of light. The
luminaire with its functionality and extreme efficiency was not only the perfect choice in the sense of uniformity of lighting but met the desired low energy consumption as well. In addition, daylight sensors were installed to adapt the light to the daylight levels.

Light that activates sales
Modern retail shops cannot afford to be uniform. To provoke the desired response of buyers, sections with high sales potential have to be enhanced in the right way.
Hunter spot is designed to make products stand out and it helps to create a desirable overall brand experience. With various application options it is suitable for different architecture requriements, considering high and low ceilings.
Optimised for task lighting
With its minimal shape it responds to all needs for great illumination. The soft edge design allows to reach a high visual comfort and low glare by making a soft transition of light on the frame. It is an extremely functional luminaire, more than perfect for those who want something simple and smart. Its design has nothing more to add and nothing left to take away.
A range of recessed LED spots brings efficiency and customization together.
With a wide choice of colour combinations, power options and sizes, Pipes R is a spot that can blend in discretely or become an eye catching element in the space. The concept of "Less is more" went beyond the design itself or the way a space is used. Each and every product component has been optimized to make the Pipes R highly efficient and affordable.
3D BIM objects
Place the luminaires in your visualization
3d BIM objects are a game changer in the construction industry. Intra lighting is one of first brands in the lighting industry who understood the extraordinary potential of this brand-new tool. Always focused on technological development, Intra lighting has already started to implement BIM, the leading-edge technology that opens new horizons in the lighting design.
Experience the lighting before it happens
An amazing tool has arrived that will change the way you work
Say hello to the new era in projecting. The architectural visualization development has enabled us to create photo-realistic images of buildings already in the design stage. Today, everyone involved in the process can understand the architectural concept, see images of the final solution and experience the result of every change before it actually happens. It allows us to make smart decisions on computer, not on site. Controll project costs and time. Avoid problems.
The advantage of seeing and comparing different solutions changes everything. It’s the first time that we can understand not only how a different luminaire will look like in the space, but also how the illumination changes and therefore how it will affect the space perception.
Light+Building is a great fair. So are the memories.
Thank you for being there and sharing this special experience.

Slovenian Book Centre in Trieste, Italy
In Trieste, Italy, just one step to the west from the Intra lighting's home town, the Slovenian Book Center has
crossed the borders of a typical bookshop,
becoming a lively part of the city, hosting different social and cultural events.
Symbolic ties which are important to the Slovenian minority living in Trieste inspired the design of the bookshelves and the remarkable composition in the space. The pattern of the bookshelves derives from the facade decoration of the National Hall, designed by the famous Slovenian architect Max Fabiani in 1904. Redesigned in a modern structure,
the famous pattern helps to create an inviting and fresh look

Space transformation challenges
Future illumination answering to the changes in human needs
Spaces are changing. We are using the same space for different activities; where the focus changes depending on the time of day, people and tasks. Spaces have to become modular, flexible and convertible, based on unique requirements. We use offices for focused work, collaboration, learning and socializing. We use cinemas as a meeting space, watching new movies and spending free time. We use restaurants for breakfasts and later for romantic dinners. The experience changes, but the space stays the same.
The luminaire Ergetic was designed to answer the new needs of this transformation. With Ergetic the atmosphere can be changed in the fastest, easiest and most efficient way. Making the same space suitable for all the different activities that are taking place.
The Demi LED recessed luminaire represents a high quality lighting solution for office buildings. It provides maximum efficiency, 127 lm/W and an uniform illumination. Universal luminaire body can be installed recessed in plasterboard or modular ceilings, ensuring best matching with the space interior design. Demi LED is equipped with new SQ LED modules, available in two lumen packages. SQ LED technology guarantees almost complete freedom from maintenance for 50.000h L80/B10.
Demi LED PR version produces no-glare light in wide area without shadows, while OP version with a soft homogenous light is commonly used for general lighting applications.
Connecting school with community
Park Mains High School in Scotland
Park Mains is an innovative building, accommodating 1400 students and 136 staff. Holmes Miller architects designed it through an extensive consultation with the Education department and the School to provide a platform for the Curriculum for Excellence to flourish whilst creating a fantastic hub for the Community.
Teaching spaces are arranged across 3 levels, as well as a range of enhanced PE facilities and many break-out spaces that provide greater flexibility to students and teachers, allowing different types of learning and collaboration to happen. One of the most dramatic aspects of the design is a central atrium which is the heart of the school. The spaces are flooded with natural light, that is complemented with an homogeneous illumination that direct people through the space and create a pleasant environment for students to learn, collaborate and grow.

More for less
Gorenje production plant in Slovenia
Gorenje is one of the eighth largest home appliance(s) manufacturers in Europe, known for its collaboration with famous designers, such as Ora-Ïto, Karim Rashid, Pininfarina and Swarowski. Their modern manufacturing facility in Velenje undertook a lighting refurbishment in order to decrease energy consumption and reach modern standards.
The solution was made in collaboration with the energy contracting company GGE. By using the energy efficient luminaire Arago and the introduction of lighting control, we managed to achieve impressive savings and a swift return on investment. Moreover, fewer luminaires were used and the installation was fast and smooth. The right quantity and quality of light improved working conditions which in turn positively impacted (the) productivity and safety at work.
Born to be efficient
Industries are one of the biggest consumers of energy, with lighting representing a high percentage of this consumption. Intra lighting has understood the market need for a solution that could bring this cost down to a very minimum and at the same time to offer a high quality of light, reliability, fast return of investment, quick installation, easy maintenance and a solution for different application needs within one single family range.
With the Arago LED, we upgraded all the benefits and advantages of the existing fluorescent version and reached an efficiency level of 113 lm/W together with an outstanding reliability and a permanent lighting quality throughout all of its service life. With the elimination of strobing and an excellent lateral glare control UGR < 19.3, even with the wider optics, the all new Arago LED sets a totally new standard in safety in production areas. Perfect thermal product management guarantees an efficient operation in ambient temperatures up to 45 °C, which nowadays is frequently demanded for the high bays.
