Innovations relating to the
building sector

Architect@work in Zurich

The established Architect@work trade event series, with a focus on product innovations, will take place on 6 and 7 May 2015 in Zurich. Producers from all over the world present product inno-
vations, materials and services relating to the building sector at the trade fair for architects, planners and engineers. Hess is presenting the multifunctional CITY ELEMENTS illuminating columns as well as completely new LED design luminaires and a  a supplementary bench with the DALVIK product family in Hall 3, booth 76.

Innovation value of products as focal point of the event

Strict selection criteria for the exhibited innovations

The organisers place great importance on the innovation value of products, with regards to their uniqueness for the building sector. As a result, a committee of architects and interior designers assesses the innovative nature of all registered and planned products for the exhibition, based on strict selection criteria, in advance. Thanks to the successful symbiosis of innovation and design, the CITY ELEMENTS illuminating columns and DALVIK product family meet the applicable quality features in full.

Timeless design, traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art LED technology

As a premium producer of outdoor luminaires and site furnishings, Hess is presenting two innovative highlights with CITY ELEMENTS and the DALVIK product family. The high-quality products and solution concepts fully reflect the company's motto "Hess – Enhancing urban spaces". "Made in the Black Forest", they are characterised by a successful blend of timeless design, traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art LED technology.

CITY ELEMENTS – Multi-functionality at its best

The CITY ELEMENTS illuminating column offers far more than simply illumination. Featuring combinable elements, these multifunctional and innovative columns are available with the state-of-the-art LED technology (XICATO inside) and offer diverse additional functions and solutions for city-centre requirements. These include electricity and water supply, the installation of a camera for security areas, emergency call functions, attractive light projections, connections for Christmas lighting or e-mobility functions.

New and award-winning: DALVIK – LED design luminaires and site furnishings

The DALVIK product family expands the Hess portfolio with a completely new product family of LED design luminaires and site furnishings for integrated design concepts. LED design luminaires and a supplementary bench, that can be used in a variety of ways on roads, paths and squares, allow for a uniform expression of design for all urban applications and projects.
Even before its market launch in January 2015, the DALVIK luminaire made quite an impression: it was announced a winner at the 2014 Iconic Awards and awarded the Baden-Württemberg "Focus Silver 2014"international design prize. The design luminaire is supplemented by a matching aluminium bench with high-quality slats in PEFC-certified ash wood, for example.
