About

Zickzack by Hobelsberger Studios

Is a work light for studios, coworking -and home office spaces. It is sustainable due to the usage of a standardized LED-tubes (ca. 20 W, 100-240 V AC) and due to the usage of material-quantity/ per unit because of its extreme light-weight design. 

ZickZack studio lighting represents a symbiosis of pragmatism and aesthetics thanks to a clever construction concept and a specular outer finish, allowing it to flawlessly blend into any type of environment.

ZickZack’s 70% direct 30% indirect light distribution serves you with a comfortable lighting environment that doesn't stress the eyes even after hours of reading or working in front of your computer.

At the end of their life, most commercially available LED lights must be discarded as together with their lampshade (body and deglare-system). But why dump the entire fixture as electrical waste, instead of just replacing the LED-tube ?

That´s why we came up with ZickZack. ZickZack uses a standard LED-tube which is available in the hardware store. This means it´s light source can be replaced seven times. With a light duration of 15 years, this means 100 years of light. And in our opinion, we need more standard LED-light-sources, since they fit in internationally standardized lamp sockets, making ZickZack usable all over the world.

This makes ZickZack not only environmentally friendly but also extremely economical.

This type of LED-tube lighting makes ZickZack a highly energy-saving generation of light focused on the work area and ergonomic working conditions. Zickzack is easy to install and dismount, fits seamlessly into any environment and fills it with pleasant, homogeneous, shadow-free , glare-free light.
