Kreon is the only manufacturer to provide appliances for floors, ceilings and walls within a single language of form. Kreon’s light literally covers all three dimensions. Kreon emphasises the three-dimensional nature of architecture. Kreon’s starting point is a single collection, which offers an endless series of possible combinations. The consistency of the principles Kreon applies to developing this collection means that any lighting problem can be solved on the basis of the architecture. Three-dimensional use is made of light to reinforce the suggestion of motion, analogously with daylight.
The architectural context is crucial. As a lighting company, Kreon focuses on harmony between lighting and architecture. Kreon stresses the need to think along with the architectural process and offers lighting solutions that merge into the whole. Lighting is always planned for a carefully thought out position.
Lighting becomes architecture
The intended light must fulfil the required function and is therefore much more than decoration. Light as a necessity. For Kreon, the quality of the projected light is an important starting point. The quality depends on the angle at which the light comes from the device. It is important that the object or the space is shown in a favourable light without dazzling. There is a specific light source that is right for every situation and every job.
Kreon epitomises the language of form in present-day architecture, an architecture based on right angles and lines. It is to this same sober architecture that the appliances owe their universal and timeless character. Instead of basing its designs on the form of the lighting devices and the radius of the light they diffuse, Kreon is resolutely determined to choose architecture. Because Kreon bases its work on architectural design, it can enter into dialogue with architecture as an equal partner. Kreon appliances are not foreign elements, but merge with the architecture. The product has a minimal presence and leaves it to light itself to steal the show. The forms are simple and austere. Kreon lighting appliances are sober and do not monopolise attention. An architect does not want lighting appliances, but light, atmosphere and comfort. Kreon provides the tools of light.
