Forum Provides Lit Corner Solutions

Forum provided a custom application of their Aquas 34 to Drewery Place — a Houston 2020 Landmark Award – giving its corners a clean, sleek look. The Aquas 34 begins on the sidewalk and runs vertically up the wall, while seamlessly transitioning into the ceiling that wraps around the exterior canopy of this luxury apartment complex.

The Aquas Series by FORUM is a line of extruded aluminum rectilinear luminaires approved for wet location, allowing for design consistency throughout wet and dry locations. Multiple mounting configurations are available including rigid stem, surface and wall mounted.

The luminaire can be mounted as a ceiling surface, wall with or without arm, or can be mounted to a horizontal surface for indirect illumination. The luminaire is available with numerous optical package options to control beam distribution from 30° to 90°. A Satin lens or Baffle can be specified for direct view applications. LED output can be specified from 150-1300 lumens per foot, Tunable White, RGB and RGBW variants are also available (consult factory). Download Specs »

Award Winning Lighting in 2017

It’s been a great year for some of our manufacturers who contributed to amazing award winning projects and accomplishments. Following are three manufacturers who deserve special recognition.  

Targetti Helps Oculus Meet a Tall Order 

A 2017 Lumen West Award of Excellence, the top lighting design award given by the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Los Angeles Section, went to Oculus Light Studio for the soaring spaces of the Boston Consulting Group in Los Angeles. Targetti’s DuraTape RGB adds a splash of color to the lobby’s oculus, which opens to the 54-ft ceiling. Then leading up from the lobby, white DuraTape tucked under the stair “floats” the steps with a continuous glow.   
   

DuraTape is a flexible, high efficacy, LED luminous light strip for continuous consistent illumination.  Adjustable lengths are available for varied architectural accent, functional and general lighting applications. Available in 2200K-3500K whites, monochromatic colors and RGB+W options. All dimmable to 0% for indoor and outdoor applications. 




The award winning project also features a combination of custom and standard downlights by Targetti. A custom CCT Mini Adjustable Triple Downlight was created specifically for this project to complement the use of the CCT Mini Adjustable Downlights that were featured in other areas throughout the interior space.  

Congratulations to architects Shubin & Donaldson and to Oculus for skillful use of indirect lighting in a complex space.

Forum Sculpts Calatrava’s $4B WTC Transportation Hub

Custom lighting tools developed by Forum Lighting sculpt the “jaw-dropping” architecture of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. Continuous runs of direct fluorescent and LED luminaires (fixture types FN and FM) present a curved profile as they light the train platforms. While asymmetric indirect luminaires (FAM, FAM3, and FG) tucked into the spines of the main transit hall create a shower of illumination that flows into the east-west corridor. Type FBB symmetric fluorescents, with their diecast shell housings, seem to morph right out of the structural cross members and spine of the corridor. At the terminus, circular luminaires (FD) incorporate vital security cameras and PA speakers.

Forum is incredibly proud of their work with architect Santiago Calatrava and Fisher Marantz Stone, which won the Illumination Award of Distinction, the highest international honor bestowed by the Illuminating Engineering Society. 





Optic Arts VintageDim® Marks Progress

The Illuminating Engineering Society’s Progress Committee keeps up to date with all the latest developments in the art and science of lighting. And this year’s Progress Report recognizes VintageDim® for enabling familiar dim-to-warm LED lighting on a 0-10V control circuit.
Optic Arts integrates a universal driver, 0-10V dimming module and Flex STP Variable White strip lighting. The result is a single, high-performance LED solution that emulates the incandescent dimming curve in coves, cabinets, displays – virtually any linear indirect or lensed application. Solutions ship standard with an 1800-2700K dimming curve, but custom transitions can be factory-programmed. Download Spec Sheet
