A recent event at the Zumtobel/Thorn/Tridonic building showcased the unveiling of the world’s largest continuous ceiling light, breaking a Guinness World Record. The installation, spanning 45 feet in length and 4.5 meters in width, covers an area over 200 square meters. Made of fabric weighing 100 kilograms, Zumtobel showcased their ability to create such pieces up to 100 meters in length in one piece.

This innovative installation not only serves as an engineering marvel but also as an acoustic solution that enhances the overall atmosphere of the space with dynamic color changes. Referred to as a new generation of ‘functional lighting systems,’ the textile stretches 45 meters by 4.5 meters, presented as a single piece of fabric.

The event saw the presence of Wolfgang Marzin, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt, who commended the achievement. Additionally, Zumtobel Group CEO, Thomas Koenig, announced another honor – the Light + Building award for the most sustainable booth.

Moreover, Clause Diener, VP of R&D for Lighting Brands, introduced Keyture, an innovative concept aimed at enhancing the IoT capabilities of Thorn and Zumtobel lighting solutions. The presentation focused on three key aspects: ‘smart space,’ ‘smart lighting,’ and ‘smart emergency,’ underscoring Siemens’ role as a strategic partner in these initiatives.
