Introducing the ‘Zuma Lumisonic Pro for John Cullen Downlight’

Here at Zuma, we’re delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with the industry-leading luxury lighting design house, John Cullen Lighting. Together, we present a new, wholly unique product, the Zuma Lumisonic Pro for John Cullen Downlight.

This groundbreaking product is a first of its kind – bringing together Zuma’s speaker-embedded light solution, with the lifestyle-focused, architectural elegance of John Cullen’s preeminent lighting expertise. The result is an audio and illumination marvel, furnishing homes with premium multi-room light and sound control that’s almost totally invisible to the naked eye.

John Cullen and Zuma have created a high performance multi-room audio and lighting system, incorporated into an ultra compact, completely recessed downlight. A ceiling-flush design means, when installed, the unit is totally unobtrusive, only revealing a discreet pinhole baffle – with all other components hidden out of sight. The collaboration with John Cullen’s design team ensures the downlight can be plastered-in flush, allowing the sound and lighting unit to blend seamlessly into the aesthetic of the ceiling. If you need to remove Zuma, a clever release system ensures you don’t damage the plaster in any way. 

Discerning homeowners can now enjoy the immersive audio playback, natural lighting, and wellbeing enhancements of a Zuma speaker-light system, from a design-first, near-invisible unit by the masterful team at John Cullen Lighting. This is high performance home design at its absolute best.

Invisible multi-room sound and light

The Zuma Lumisonic for John Cullen downlight comes to life when installed in a multi-unit array. HiFi loudspeakers fill each room with stunning audio – offering playback from streaming services, radio, audiobooks and more. Premium LED light bathes the room in natural lighting with a CRI of 90+, and offers brilliantly intuitive adjustments like colour-temperature tuning and circadian light rhythms. Wellbeing presets combine light and sound in unique ‘soundscapes’ that energise the body or relax the mind. All features are controlled wirelessly from the palm of your hand, via the Zuma app.

With HiFi audio integrated into your downlights, homeowners achieve seamless integration of audio into the living space without the need for additional bulky speakers. This setup offers a clean and minimalist aesthetic while delivering high-quality sound throughout the room. It saves space and reduces clutter, enhancing overall ambiance and functionality. Additionally, since the audio is distributed evenly across the room, it provides a more immersive listening experience compared to traditional stereo systems.

The Zuma Lumisonic Pro for John Cullen downlight can be installed all over the home – even the bathroom – for multi-room sound and light that’s easily managed from the Zuma app, or via Alexa voice control. Homeowners achieve seamless integration of audio into the living space without the need for bulky speakers, preserving a clean and minimalist aesthetic while delivering high-quality sound throughout the home.

A new pinnacle of modern lighting design

This allows the speaker light to employ a reduced beam angle of 38 degrees, down from the standard 50 degrees. With no protrusion below the ceiling, and a unique ‘cape’ that blocks any view into the ceiling void, it is the perfect solution where concealed lighting is preferred, proving an aesthetically subtle way to preserve the clean lines and design integrity of any space. And with it’s IP65 rating, this remarkable new product can be installed in any room in the home, including the bathroom.
