Orion (Outdoor Lighting) by Limay Türkkan & Anıl Tontuş
2014 - 2015, Platinum A' Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design Award Winner
We inspired by the sky and stars. The concept is a "magical night". We also wanted to promote our corporate identity. Orion is a prominent constellation located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the the world. As well as it consists the brightest stars that can be seen from world. "V" shaped supporting pillars represent our corporate identity.
Orion is top-mounted LED luminaire for outdoor usage in areas like parks, gardens and etc. The design of the product is based on the functionality and aesthetics together to build a practical and faschinating structure which also reflects our brand identity. Orion provide customers an aesthetic product and also gives them wide variety of technical solutions for their lighting problem. Additionally to the main LED light source, there is an RGB LED line around the luminaire top that gives an adjustabe ambient light with different color choices.
Design Challenges
The hardest part of the design process is the development phase. After the creation of concept, we had difficulties in process of transforming the concept into a real and manufactured product. We tried not to limit our creativity but also tried to think about production factors and the technology we had. It was very challenging to decide when we will stop and the eventual design. We worked with the optical and mechanical team as the lighting design team and tried to solve problems with a multidisciplinary study.
Production Technology
The product consists of two main materials; aluminium alloy main body and PMMA optical cover. Under the optical cover there are LED modules (PCB/Printed Circuit Board) for illumination and also there is a constant current LED driver inside of the luminaire as a power supply. The LED PCB’s are mounted on a metal sheet to reduce the heat as a way of providing LED chips a longer lifetime. In the production of the product, we used aluminium injection die casting for the main body and applied powder coating for the different surface finishes, available in a broad range of colours.. The PMMA cover produced by plastic injection molding method.
