SIMES presents Ghost, a range of recessed lighting representing a revolution in understanding light in relation to the materials used in architecture: The light source integrates itself completely in the void until it disappears. What is perceived is only the light and its effect on the surrounding space. Architecture becomes thus a shell of “dynamic” surfaces of voids and fullness of light that directly derives from the material, following the creative path the lighting designer had imagined.
SIMES’ Ghost is composed of two elements: the housing and the lighting element.
The housing is supplied with bolts, locking system, and stickers to be applied on the outside of the retaining panels to ensure the perfect alignment if installing multiple luminaires. The housing has two separate parts:
- A jig which forms the exterior housing, and is extracted together with the retaining panel after completing the casting and removing the anchor screws
- A housing that remains embedded inside the casting and houses the lighting element when the jig is removed.
- Lighting Element
The lighting element is die cast aluminum and is anchored to the casing through proper screws. It remains completely hidden in the void.
Ghost for Cladding
Ghost for cladding or plasterboard is the most recent development of the range. It comes with an anodized aluminum recessed housing that can be finished in many different materials. A fixture that has been developed to be totally integrated into the architecture. The front lip of the recessed housing and the aluminum sides of the front aperture will remain visible.
The fixtures aperture has been developed with a slanted front panel accessory in anodized aluminum or the same material finish as the wall. This can be removed so to take different types of material finish, especially when the use of different materials may prove difficult when applying on the slanted aperture.
Ghost has been developed by SIMES so that it can be completely covered with the same material finish as the wall to totally integrate the fixture into the architecture and create discreet lighting effects. Ghost for cladding can be installed in:
- Plasterboard panels for interiors
- Ceramic Tiles
- Stone finish
- Exterior fiber cement siding panels
- Breezeblocks or other construction materials that require a surface finish
