Clearly, specifiers are increasingly demanding transparency in the materials and lifecycle of products, along with efficiencies and recycling in every step along the life cycle. ORA is excited to partner with Alan Lindsley, AIA, LEED GA; Karen Jess-Lindsley, MBA; and the entire Lindsley Lighting team, bringing their made-in-America products to the New York City metropolitan lighting community.
Lindsley Lighting takes a sustainability-forward approach to modernist LED lighting fixtures, and it all begins with minimalism. The low profile of LEDs combined with timeless designs results in contemporary sconces and cylinders for both indoors and out. “Our aim is to minimize the carbon footprint of our fixtures from development through recycling. As new technologies and information emerge we will continuously look for ways to lighten the impact of our fixtures,” said Founder and Chief Design Officer Alan Lindsley. Lindsley requires that all products and manufacturing processes be RoHS3 compliant, an EU standard that eliminates toxic substances.
A huge variety of cylinders from 1 inch to 4 inches in diameter provide up to 3000 lm for workhorse lighting and high ceilings. Choose standard body heights starting at 6.5 inches or any custom height all the way up to 60 inches! There’s stem and cord pendants, of course, but the Tule surface mount seamlessly attaches to ceiling, while the slimmer Reed has a knife-edge flange that blends in, or an optional mud ring.
The proprietary real rust finish in their Reed CorTen-ish collection, must be seen in person. Each fixture is slightly different, which only adds to the natural beauty of the finish. Fun to design with and still highly sustainable, HLO Drop Lens Constellations, in anodized or powder coat, are amazing statement pieces.
ORA is pleased to announce that longtime friends and colleagues from Helios Lighting have chosen us to represent their flexible and cost-effective lines of downlighting throughout the New York metropolitan area. Helios prides itself on 7 decades of experience in continually improving downlighting and “being the easiest lighting manufacturer to do business with at every step of the lighting purchase.”
Spec-grade downlights and cylinders from Helios come in both round and square apertures and feature field-configurable color temperatures. Designers can choose 3000K, 3500K, or 4000K on the jobsite, either before or after installation. Lumen packages can be specified up to 3000 lm for higher ceilings, and almost all offer a lensed wallwash optic as well as emergency and 1% dimming options. And yes, there is a 6-inch trim UL-listed for wet locations.
We are delighted that this new ORA-Helios partnership will strengthen Helios’s existing client relationships in the region and introduce new customers to Helios quality and frictionless service.
Sylvie from Eklipse Lighting traveled to NYC from Montreal to spread the word on their highly impressive, well-engineered product line consisting of teeny tiny form factors. And she did NOT disappoint!
Their signature products include the PROXI—the latest addition to their award winning small form linear LED family. PROXI was designed to offer outstanding light performance and distribution in an almost invisible millwork detail.
The PIXIS™ family is a gem of innovation and ingenuity, very small but sturdy and easy-to-use, this mini-LED spotlight has a magnetically assembled snoot which handles field-interchangeable optics of 18°, 24° and 41°. Completely independent from one another, each head can rotate 360° and pivot on 80° for maximum light control.
Patented and designed to be the quietest light bridge in the world, ADENA SQUARE™ (shown below left) perfectly conceals its light and totally eliminates undesirable glare. The ADENA SQUARE™ is also uncompromising on light distribution. Its light floods the entire usable space in a display case, assuring generous coverage even when products are set onto elevating accessories, such as neckforms and risers. Perfect for showcases, displays for retail/commercial, museums, exhibits, and similar applications.
We love the beautiful install of Eklipse Lighting’s miniature Pixis spot lighting at the Christian Dior exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. (below right)
Eklipse Lighting is best known for their retail lighting solutions. You will find their products installed at high-end retailers such as Hublot 5th Avenue, The Kooples on Mercer Street, Watches of Switzerland, Tiffany, Clinique, and Waldorf Astoria.
At BDNY last month, Cerno launched a highly unique, nature-inspired pendant! CURA is “inspired by the breathtaking intricacy, integrity, and architecture of nests found in the wild. Nests embody resourcefulness and innovation. Like human homes, nests protect our most precious and sacred creations, our offspring” says Cerno.
The actual Cura nest is 38″ wide x 24″ high and is made of solid wood—your choice of raw walnut or white oak. The egg is created by paper mache and encompasses an E12 base, type T8 lamp. 9.5 W max. Color available in 2700K or 3000K. Download Specs »
As we can view nature, Cura is a stunning masterpiece to feast your eyes on. And rumor has it, a bird nest in your home is certain to bring luck! So give us a shout if you’re interested!
