Vancouver, Canada, 2018-05-15 –
Canadian lighting designer Saleem Khattak, owner of Archilume proudly introduces three new luminaire systems, Alto, Aura and Balance, for modern architecture and interiors at New York’s ICFF trade show May 20–23. Archilume will be located at booth # 142. The 30th annual ICFF tradeshow, North America’s platform for global design, will map the newest frontier of what’s best and what’s next at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
Inspired by minimalist shapes condensed to their most basic yet visually strong essential forms, Archilume’s functional lighting arrangements lend a sculptural element to modern spaces. The new luminaire systems share Archilume’s signature characteristic: glare-free illumination employing the principle of total internal reflection optics, a natural phenomenon perfected and brought to the world of decorative lighting by Archilume. The new products also allow designers and owners more choice in creating their own unique spatial lighting compositions.
Archilume’s new LED luminaires offer a new Dim to Warm feature enhancing the dimming performance of Archilume’s Alto and Aura LED light sources, allowing them to follow exactly the dimming curve of familiar filament lamps while enabling them to emit a warmer light as they are dimmed. The effect offers a more relaxing atmosphere perfect for residential and hospitality applications. Innovation in the development of LED lighting is rapidly increasing their aesthetic appeal, and Warm Dimming is the new way many LEDs are producing realistic, natural appearing light.
Defined by a strong upper conical shape, Alto’s form finishes at its base with a jewel-like transparent element reminiscent of a craftsman cut diamond. Alto emits a flattering warm light that is free from glare owing to Archilume’s signature application of total internal reflection optics. This design, incorporating the latest warm dimming LED technology, transitions form a color temperature of 3000 degrees Kelvin at full brightness to a warm color temperature of 1800 degrees Kelvin when dimmed. Alto can hang as a single element or be grouped to create an inspiring installation on a grand scale. Alto is fully compatible with Archilume’s Configurate canopy system for expanded creative lighting expressions.
