fbl – the aesthete

fbl stands for folding bending light or flat box LED. This series features a unique design vocabulary. The specially developed and registered production technology (folding technology) creates precise edges with no visible connections and allows the housing to be made using a single plate. Since it is permanently integrated into the heat sink, it increases the available cooling surface area and is therefore of thermal importance for the light. Thanks to professional lens technology, the characteristic, square light-emitting surface creates a rotationally symmetrical beam characteristic.

High-precision edges

The fbl flat-box-led series consists of very slim LED luminaires in cuboid housings. No screws interfere with the filigree appearance. The spotlights provide high luminous efficacy with compact dimensions and low-energy consumption.

“Hard edge aesthetics” describes the angularity of the purist aluminium housing, which is appreciated by connoisseurs. mawa developed this folding technique especially for this luminaire series.

Invisible technology

Flowing, homogeneous ceiling soffits create generous room impressions. fbl flat-box-led profile spotlights can be installed flush with the ceiling and recessed into the mawa recessed profile and combined with tracks without visible adapters

Extended joint

With the mawa recessed profile, it is possible to mount tracks recessed above the ceiling mirror. This allows discreet joints to be made on the ceiling where adapters and tracks would otherwise determine the appearance.

In the fbl flat-box-led track spotlights, the joints with square cross-section complete the purist design of the luminaire housings. They connect spotlights with adapter.

For recessed mounting, they are extended accordingly so that nothing disturbs the overall aesthetic impression. This must be specified when ordering, as the adapter, joint and spotlight are supplied pre-assembled ex works.

Material, surfaces, colours

mawa places the highest demands on the surface design of its luminaires. mawa’s luminaires are powder-coated to a
first-class standard: so excellently that experts sometimes thought they were wet-painted. They are usually available in matt black or matt white. On request, all surfaces are available in RAL, DB and NCS colours.

Components & accessories for fbl

mawa luminaires are known for clever and impressive details – also regarding the range of accessories that are easy to handle. Numerous components can specifically influence the beam characteristics and anti-glare.

This includes optical accessories as a primary effect, such as reflectors and lenses that concentrate the light emitted from the LED module. Our lenses provide a secondary effect. In combination with the primary component, they “model” the light. For example, an oval light beam is created by adding a sculpture lens to the spot reflector.

Online is good, print is too
