Bright, neutral white light makes for a pleasant
illumination of the important work spaces
and ensures the proper reflection of the colour
of food and products.
The combination of direct, uniform light

Spotlights make the illuminated objects on shelves and showcases the focus. Grazing light is excellent for emphasising the structures of walls, and surface illumination meets functional requirements.
The Loox lighting system offers many possibilities
to set accents in a room. With the appropriate
light composition corners, edges and surfaces
can be dramatized. Sculptures, fabrics, textures,
and plants are enhanced with deliberately placed
Spot lighting in a niche highlights decorative
objects and breaks up large homogeneous wall
surfaces. An LED strip light in an offset ceiling
creates an artificial horizon, simulates daylight in
enclosed spaces, and mitigates the harsh effect
of the corners of the room.
Uniform, bright light accentuates the functional
areas, complementing the general room light.
An intelligent combination of basic lighting and
effect light can change the overall effect of the
room and thus positively influence the mood.
Narrow beam Loox spotlights can create
directional lighting effects to highlight
With surface mounted or built-in spotlights in
a row it is possible to achieve flat surface
illumination of specific areas. A special effect
is created by overlapping light cones, staging
the illuminated area with ambiance.
Spotlights are most often used to accentuate
surfaces or objects or to divide areas in space
into zones. Directional light can be used both
directly and indirectly. The Loox system offers
a wide variety of possible applications.
Linear illumination is created with LED strip lights.
Inside cabinets and shelves, on work surfaces
or enclosures of furniture, Loox LED strip
lights provide uniform light with a broad area
Linear light allows creating both direct and
indirect light scenarios. The flexibility of
LED strip lights lets you the realise countless
High-gloss surfaces act like a mirror.
Depending on the viewing angle, the light
sources become visible on the surface.
This unsightly effect can be minimised by
suitable placement of the lights.
The mirror law must be observed: The angle
of incidence corresponds to the angle of
reflection. The more parallel the illumination
angle to the surface, the less the mirror effect.
The wavelengths reflected by a surface determine
the colours that humans perceive.
For example, a green plant only reflects the
green wavelengths and absorbs all the others.
Thus, the plant appears green.
When coloured light falls on a white surface,
it completely reflects the incident light and takes
on the colour of the light. That is why a white
wall appears reddish when illuminated red.
Illuminating a coloured surface with coloured
light creates mixed colours.
When furniture fronts or a wooden floor are
illuminated, they reflect shades of brown that
bathe all neutral surfaces, such as a white
ceiling or wall, in a warm tone.
Wood and stone surfaces are materials that
are very suited for being staged with a good
lighting concept. Wood surfaces have the
best impact with direct lighting. Stone surfaces
can be staged with spotlights. Grazing lights
accentuate the structures of natural surfaces
and give the material an appearance
Dark materials absorb light, so it is necessary
to use stronger light. However, too much light
destroys the ambiance and comfort.
Bright materials reflect the light much better
than dark materials. A brightly designed space
therefore requires less overall light. Extra
effect lighting adds freshness and a feeling of
spaciousness to the room.
The Loox system offers a wide range of
switches for a wide range of tasks. Depending
on your comfort demands or intended use.
Especially important is the control of light
scenarios in multi-functional rooms. Switch
lights on and off conveniently with remote
controls from anywhere in the room and
create the desired light situations.
Depending on the application remote controls
can be used for easy control of several light
sources, from multi-white lights to coloured
The Smart Home is a trend that offers increased
comfort. The idea of networking and centrally
controlling your whole house or apartment
is fascinating. Häfele has taken the step into
the digital future and offers solutions for the
intelligent control of light – and more.
An app connects and centrally controls all
installed light components and allows the design
of light effects individually with a smartphone
or tablet. In this way multiple scenarios can be
saved and programmed, or simply retrieved
with just by finger tip.
The Häfele Loox system offers more flexibility
in planning and implementing customised
lighting solutions. Combine different Loox lights
to be operated with a single switching function.
Special converters allow you to combine lights
from the entire Loox range into a single light
Make use of the power of the light applications
in furniture for other useful tasks as well. For
example, the Häfele Loox system offers wireless
charging stations and USB ports, which can
be elegantly integrated into your furniture design
as well. Mobile and tablet charging points add
value to any piece of furniture because they offer
Loox offers you many options for combining
light in furniture. With easy-to-use distributor
components, for example, you can control
multiple light sources with a single driver.
Turn your furniture into a jukebox. The Häfele
sound system makes it possible. Concealed
sound transducers convert audio signals and
deliver them through the furniture fronts and
into the room. The music is transmitted from
a smartphone or tablet to the sound system
via Bluetooth. The sound experience is more
than convincing. An effective added value
to the Loox system.
In the Loox system, you will find simple
concepts that will help you installing your light.
For example, a simple solution to conveniently
connect several lights in series to a single

Illumination that allows you to see every

The main purpose of the room light on the
ceiling is to serve as a basic light, which,
by its nature, creates shadow zones behind
the furniture front. Flat light or directional
spotlights in cabinets illuminate the entire
interior making organising, searching, and
finding much easier.
When cabinets with glass doors are lit from the
inside, well-placed light transforms dishes into
decorative objects. Light behind glass shelves
lends wall unit fronts transparency and lightness.
Glare-free light, falling directly onto the worktop
without shadows, is perfect for illuminating
work surfaces. This will uniformly illuminate the
work surface. Preferably with neutral, white
light. For comfortable work and improved safety..
Light integrated in drawers improves the view
and offers more comfort, even with darkened
room light. The light will automatically switch
on and off when the drawers are opened
Plinth lighting can elegantly provide orientation
in darkened rooms or emphasise the floor area
with bright accents of the room when the room
light is on.
When it comes to lighting a room, it is the
combination and arrangement of multiple light
sources that matters. If natural light (daylight)
is available, artificial light can be a perfect addition.
Depending on the purpose for the lighting
plan of a room and specific areas, functional
lighting is used. To create a specific ambiance
decorative lighting is used.
To create an atmospheric ambience, the room
light can also be used as indirect lighting in the
Decorative light provides less illumination and
serves to create an appealing ambience. In order
to achieve attractive mood light, the light source
can be concealed invisibly in the furniture or
visibly integrated into the design of the furniture.
It is important that decorative light beams do
not create brightly lit surfaces or produce sharp
edges. RGB LED lights allows creating coloured
lighting effects in the room.
For example, the lighting need in a home
office can differ and depends on the location
of the desk as well as the influx of daylight.
The decisive factor, however, is the activity
performed. When work is done on computer
or tablet a glare-free light source is required.
Since the screen is the work surface, a backlight
can be sufficient, reducing the contrast
between the bright screen and the dark
However, drawing or writing require a well
lit work surface.
