Kitchen lighting: the perfect combination between functionality and visual appeal
Regardless of the style, you can embellish your kitchen with functional items, such as lights and electric devices whose striking visual appeal brings out the best in the whole furnishing project.
Gruppo LUBE offers a vast new range of solutions for illuminating every space with LEDs in light profiles, spotlights or germicidal lamps: worktop, interior of furniture items, plinths, finger rails and shelves in sideboards and bookcases.
There is also a vast assortment of accessories such as pop-up retractable sockets, wireless chargers and cable ducts, making your space more functional and organised.
NO MORE DIMLY-LIT AREAS NOW THERE’S LED LIGHTING
Lighting is one of the most undervalued aspects when designing a kitchen. Dimly-lit areas, especially on the worktop, reduce the effective visual field needed to perform your daily activities correctly.
Complementing your environmental and indirect light with integrated lighting makes your kitchen more functional and effective, making the most of the textured and design details.
All the products in the Gruppo LUBE price list are dimmable and temperature-adjustable ranging from 3000k to 4000k, so as to recreate the ideal environment with a more or less suffused, warm or cool light.
With the possibility of operating your lights using various applications (remote control, movement sensor, wall switch and Bluetooth app for smartphones) you can have a modern, cutting-edge and versatile system designed to create the right balance between light sources and dimly-lit areas, ensuring the best in visual comfort.
BLUE LIGHT: THE ENEMY OF BACTERIA
A kitchen needs constant sanitisation, but the excessive use of aggressive detergents can ruin furniture surfaces.
Germicidal lamps are an “ecological” alternative to the most commonly used cleaning products. Blue Light, with a wavelength of 465 nm on the visible spectrum which, with a minimum exposure of two hours, contributes to reducing the presence of bacteria and unpleasant smells on radiated surfaces.
There are many advantages:
- they remove smells;
- they kill bacteria;
- they are safe for people;
- they do not alter foodstuffs;
- they provide deep and effective sanitisation;
- they radiate any material.
So, in the Gruppo LUBE compositions, you can install lights fitted with the Dual Light system (a light source emitting 4000k Natural White light and Blue Light) both in the under wall unit area to sanitise the kitchen top and inside large drawers and wall units so that all kitchenware is kept properly.
TIDIER WITH THE POP-UP RETRACTABLE SOCKETS AND CABLE DUCTS
The kitchen is home to a number of small appliances, more than in the rest of the house, but often the power points are a long way from the worktop.
The pop-up retractable socket, recessed into the unit allows you to connect all your electric appliances with ease thanks to the series of integrated power points, including Schuko and USB. With its manual or motorised movement, it can be used whenever needed and once you have finished, it goes back down flush with the worktop, leaving the space free.
Other innovative items include the wireless mobile phone charging modules on top of the pop-up retractable socket, which as a single element can be installed on any surface of the kitchen or living area.
Another excellent solution is provided by the pop-up multi-socket blocks which can be adapted to the majority of kitchen surfaces, offering top guarantees of cleanness and safety.
The range of accessories is completed with the cable ducts, which can be inserted into any furnishing project. Available in white, black or zinc, these items can make your kitchen space neater and tidier and help to keep all the cables properly maintained.
