O’Blaney Rinker Announces Representation for Axolight

O’Blaney Rinker is pleased to represent Axolight throughout Metropolitan New York

Axolight is an Italian lighting design company based in the United States and Italy. They design, engineer, manufacture, and distribute high-end contemporary design solutions implementing cutting-edge technologies. Every Axolight product, whether it’s a standard or bespoke production, is projected, developed, tested, and hand assembled in Scorzè, Venice. Their US headquarters is based in Danbury, CT.

Axolight stands out for its creativity, technical know-how, and their highly skilled craftsmen. They have developed a collection of over 50 models—using over 12 different materials. Playful, sophisticated, and timeless, their collections are a unique embellishment for architectural projects. 

Axolight’s Bell (above left) brings together an important aesthetic identity, excellent lighting performance and acoustic properties in one. Its pongé fabric, thanks to its texture, is both flame-retardant and acoustic. Its Equivalent Sound Absorbing Area up to 4.63, allows Bell to reduce the noise as far as 59%.

Virtus (above right) is a stroke of light that combines lightness and grace, generating luminous architectural projects able to personalize the space in a very original way.

Axolight’s best performing large scale pendant is Layers. If you are in Nashville at any time, check out the Layers cluster at the new Nashville Amazon.com offices (shown above).

Axolight’s products range from the small table lamp to the giant suspension lamp, adding an original and lively touch to any kind of space.

The Pivot (above left) leads us towards a mathematical dimension of design and lighting. The beauty of the Pivot lies in the infinite styling and lighting possibilities, all of which can be created starting from a single lighting spot. This system becomes a playful structural element in space, very suitable to define spaces, both from a lighting and architectural perspective.

The Skirt (above right) lampshade is composed of a fabric that also has sound-absorbing properties, which allow it to reduce noise by up to 53%, thanks to its Equivalent Absorption Area which reaches a maximum of 3.55.

O’Blaney Rinker is delighted to bring Axolight’s top sellers to the local specification community and look forward to contributing to stunning, high-design lighting solutions.

Forum Acquisition by Current Offers Synergies

Elevate your design to the next level with

TriGain® technology and Forum architectural lighting.

O’Blaney Rinker Associates is enthusiastic about the acquisition of manufacturer-partner Forum Inc. by GE Current, a Daintree company. Forum Lighting’s 50-plus–year record of working with the design community to develop and manufacture spec-grade products is exceptional. Forum will continue as a vertically integrated, standalone entity and enjoy numerous advantages as part of Current.

Current’s TriGain phosphor technology presents just such a synergy. Current has invested significantly in the development of an efficient, narrow-band red phosphor. TriGain technology offers great color rendering across the spectrum, with vivid reds – at no cost to the light engine’s efficacy. The highly detailed TM30 color rendering tool shows TriGain’s optimized performance. Few light sources can meet the criteria in TM-30 Annex E, and TriGain technology does so with high efficacy. Retailers, specifically, will benefit. Packaging and merchandise catch the eye, thanks to colors that pop.

Combining TriGain with Forum’s high-performance luminaires also offers virtually limitless possibilities for offices, wellness service providers, transportation centers, and more. “Forum’s focus on providing high-quality linear solutions for architects, designers, and specifiers makes them the ideal partner to expand our lighting portfolio,” said Manish Bhandari, CEO, Current. “Forum’s values and customer-centric culture are well aligned with Current. Current will continue to invest in Forum to deliver new solutions, accelerating their growth.”
