Occhio presents the new luminaire series Mito and thereby completely redefines the future of light. An accomplished symbiosis of perfect design, magical features and unparalleled lighting effects, Mito is a jewel and an innovative lighting system at the same time. Captivatingly new: Occhio »color tune« lets the color temperature be adjusted according to the situation.

New sensuousness

Spherical, mythical, aesthetic – Occhio breaks new ground in lighting design with Mito. Artfully crafted, Mito is enticingly elegant and effortless. It is precisely this attention to detail that shapes the silhouette of the luminaire. The subtly defined »cut« is the characteristic feature of Mito and shows off the quality workmanship to its best advantage. Mito is available in six different surfaces. The new, refined warm tones such as bronze and rose gold are enthralling and put Mito on center stage in every interior design.

The magic of control

The suspended luminaire Mito sospeso is adjusted via »touchless control« right at the light source – the luminaire head. Thanks to innovative sensors, the luminaire can be turned on/off and dimmed via gesture control, and the »fading« function activated to continuously spread light between uplight and downlight. Alternatively, Mito can be adjusted with the Occhio air app or the air controller.

A new feature: »color tune« lets the color temperature be adjusted according to the situation. The light can thereby be set to match to mood – from a warm lighting atmosphere for a relaxed evening to an energizing, cool working light. The light color is infinitely adjustable between 2700 and 4000K.

Mito can be delivered with a unique height adjustment feature as an option: Thanks to a sophisticated reel mechanism, the pendant length can be easily and precisely adjusted whenever necessary. The cables lengthen or shorten as if by magic, always in a completely even and smooth motion.

Versatile light tool

Mito is unparalleled in its versatility. Whether as a ceiling, room or suspended luminaire, individually or in groups – Mito changes and shapes rooms in a fascinating way thanks to its unique design and revolutionary lighting technology. As surface-mounted, recessed or in-ceiling version for hollow ceilings: There is the ideal mounting option for every spatial situation.

The right light for every room

Thanks to the various ingenious lighting effects, such as directed, glare-free light,Mito is the ideal choice for both the home and commercial sector. With light emitted from one or both sides, the uplight and downlight can be controlled separately, thereby creating a variety of lighting scenarios.

German Design Award: Gold for Mito

The jury of the German Design Award was also thoroughly captivated by Mito and distinguished the graceful luminaire series with Gold. Founded in 2012, the German Design Award is one of the world’s most recognized design competitions, with honors presented by the German Design Council. The »Gold« award represents the pinnacle of international design. This title is given to only the best of the best in each category of the German Design Award.
