Instant ‘It’ Factor: GE Lighting’s chic new LED Suspended Luminaire is a commercial ceiling game changer

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio November 19, 2012 (NYSE:GE) GE Lighting continues to evoke the imagination of architects and lighting designers with LED luminaires that inspire new commercial ceiling landscapes. The Lumination™ LED Suspended Luminaire—a chic, ultra-thin fixture unlike anything seen before—aims to redefine office, retail and hospitality environments with captivating form and function.
 
The Lumination Suspended LED Luminaire opens the door to a world of decorative potential by delivering remarkable light output in a low-profile, provocative design. A clear, narrow band surrounds the edge of the fixture, making the light source appear to ‘float’ in the center of the luminaire. When illuminated, it produces a perfectly even glow. While off, it is nearly transparent.
 
“The minimal design of the luminaire makes it a game changer in the commercial lighting arena, from reception areas to conference rooms to private offices to the sales floor,” said Eric Stevenson, global product manager for GE Lighting. “Our LED suspended fixture can play a starring role in any room and is already garnering critical acclaim across the industry.”

GE’s LED suspended fixture gives architects and lighting designers a new option for creating truly inspired ceilings.

 
At the LIGHTFAIR conference in May, GE’s Lumination Suspended LED Luminaire was recognized in the Next Generation Luminaires™ 2012 Indoor Competition (Linear Pendant Lighting Category) where judges appreciated its “beautiful uplight” and “sleek modern style” combining direct and indirect lighting in one highly efficient, translucent LED luminaire.
 
Most recently, it was named a 2012 Product Innovation Award winner by Architectural Products magazine.
 
Lumination LED Suspended Luminaires use GE Intrinsx™ technology that couples the LED light engine into the light guide and maximizes the performance and application efficiency of every LED in the luminaire. Intrinsx technology allows these unique fixtures to effectively deliver versatile light distribution patterns—both diffused ambient uplighting and effective task downlighting.

Its 50,000-hour rated life eliminates bulb changes associated with fluorescent tubes and it contains no lead, mercury or glass, making handling and disposal less of a concern.
