Lighting & Controls

Open Up

HO4 Open Aperture luminaires offer a sculptural approach to linear lighting that can be configured for direct, uplight/downlight, pendant, recessed and surface-mount applications. The high-efficiency fixtures feature a polymer reflector and a unique optical design that adds just enough brightness variation to help define the rectilinear form.

Petals of Light

A new concept in decorative LED fixtures, Diphy’s name comes from Diphylleia grayi, “the crystal flower” whose white petals become totally transparent when in contact with water. One of the most suggestive news of the 2017 Material & Design Collection by Linea Light Group, the extreme transparency of the PMMA diffuser is in contrast to the brightness of the lamp lit, embellished with the characteristic pattern of OptiLight Technology, laser micro-incisions that distribute the photons downward. A thin white painted aluminum bar houses the LED light source, and a clean light fills the screen-printed curved diffuser. Available in suspended and standing lamp versions.&

Howdy, Slim

Positioned at a competitive price point, the Slim Cove Dim offers high-efficiency performance in a package that’s only 1.5-in. wide. Available in mid- and high-output models, the fixture includes easy-to-install mounting clips allowing 50-degree adjustability.

Light Looming Overhead

Decidedly less threatening than its name might imply, the Loom 14 flush-mount luminaire offers mid-century modern appeal in a choice of warm satin gold or crisp white finishes. Its intersecting metal bands and soft acrylic diffuser create illumination somewhat reminiscent of light passing through a leaded-glass window.

Up, Down and All Around

The Olah Wall Sconce can be mounted to face up, down or sideways, with a circuline lamp that creates appears to float without visible fasteners, creating a halo effect. Fine craftsmanship can be found in the book-matched ballast housing—its corners are sanded to make the seam disappear.

Linear Thinking

Retta means “straight line” in Italian, and the new Retta pendant certainly lives up to its name, with a slim, linear profile that seems to continue around its rounded end caps, thanks to the three lines machined into their gold anodized finish. Three fixture lengths are available, along with three color temperature offerings.

Create Some Atmosphere

Portfolio 2-in. LED Cylinders incorporate Dim-to-Warm technology mimics the performance of less-efficient halogen light sources, shifting their color temperature to warmer tones as they’re dimmed. Ceiling-, wall- and pendant-mount options are available, along with multiple beam distributions, lumen packages and color-temperature offerings.

It's Got Ruffles

Obviously designed for the minimalist-averse, the Pulse fixture family includes three pendants, a semi-flush model and a wall sconce—and all feature an exploding profile of handcrafted iron mesh topped in rich gold leaf. Dimmable LED lamps shine through the mesh to create diffuse illumination.

Angelic Aspirations

Suspended horizontally or at an angle, Halo circular pendants appear to float like celestial headpieces awaiting their angels. The luminaires can be ordered as singles or in groupings of two or three, and a linear version also is available. The opalized PMMA diffuser helps create even distribution for this ambient light source.

Credit Union Banks on Precision Illumination

While the architect had the best of intentions, the lighting of the credit unions’ lobby became an issue as unforeseen circumstances came to fruition. One of those issues had to do with the physical position of the building itself. Facing north, the large windows offered plenty of daylight on sunny days, which is always welcome in a commercial space. This caused a tremendous amount of glare, however, during prime working hours that made it difficult for staff members to do their jobs. To rectify this issue, the maintenance team applied a tint to the windows. The tinting strategy amplified the illumination issues in the facility on overcast days. The 22 legacy 150W indirect/direct metal halid
