Entry DescriptionMirai means “future” in Japanese, as nature oriented and sustainable solutions are the mandatory approach for the future.
Mirai is intended as a workplace or retail lighting in open areas and solves two fundamental needs in contemporary workspace design: it brings light and nature at once.
Mirai hosts hi-performance optics inside the slick bamboo tube with cork ends which are 100% natural and recyclable. The recessed narrow angle LED spotlights allow for visual comfort through control over light spill and screen glare. Mirai is certified as Safety Class 1 for use in high-rise office buildings.
Mirai is subtle, elegant, non-expensive, versatile and playful, futuristic and traditional at the same time. It’s an extremely simple idea with complex sustainability benefits.
In Asian cultures, because of its rapid growth, bamboo is the symbol of prosperity and success.
