In the world of consumer products, we are seeing thinner and thinner TV’s with each passing Super Bowl and smaller, skinnier iPhones, that are more powerful than the previous year. Even in-home decorating trendsetter Marie Kondo wants to minimalize our homes. From eating clean with smaller portions to open offices with no set workspaces, the term “less is more” has never been more entrenched. The world of lighting is no exception to this movement.
“We are seeing a shift from your traditional five/six-inch downlights to smaller four, three and even two inch downlights” says Matthew Wall, Indoor point source product marketing manager, for Lightolier by Signify. “We are excited to launch two complete three-inch aperture downlights, wall washers and accents extensions to the Calculite and LyteProfile families, that will both work on the UniFrame platform.”
One Frame, three downlight families = simple decision
In December 2018 Lightolier launched a new downlight family, EasyLyte, and new 4” and 6” configurations in its LyteProfile and Calculite downlight families. These luminaires all work on the same frame, resulting in over 56K of standard downlight configurations! “By expanding the LyteProfile and Calculite families to new smaller 3” aperture downlights we are flooding the lighting market with over 500K different options, across three different product families, in 5 different apertures” says Wall.
