Decorative and architectural lighting manufacturer WAC Lighting announced the debut of two new Organic LED luminaires that combine eco-friendly nanotechnology and modern aesthetics.
The company is introducing the Vela Organic LED chandelier with a matching OLED wall sconce.
"Designed and engineered to stimulate curiosity and aesthetic appeal among the design and specification community, our next generation OLED luminaires raise the bar with a unique lighting experience of vision and sustainability," said Shelley Wald, president, WAC Lighting.
The Vela OLED Chandelier is defined by a dramatic contemporary profile laser-crafted of aluminum, with 12 OLED panels that illuminate surfaces below, and 12 additional OLEDs that shine upward to render a soft ambiance that evokes a lighter sense of space and visual comfort.
The chandelier delivers a high light output of 2,040 lumens while offering a CRI (color rendering index) of 80 and an efficacy of 35.2 lumens per watt. The luminaire features a total of 24 OLEDs with a CCT (correlated color temperature) of 4,000K while using just 58 watts of power. Aircraft cables suspend the chandelier from the ceiling, with a height adjustment up to 36 inches.
"Our OLED luminaires are eco-friendly and sustainable," Wald said. "They showcase a unique light source from an ultra-thin aesthetic design, integrated with the most advanced nanotechnology available today."
The Vela OLED wall sconce is designed in a unique decorative aluminum profile with six sophisticated OLED panels on its perimeter. Four square panels are connected in the center by cross-shaped arms that are attached to two OLED panels on the ends. Housed within this thin luminaire, the panels provide a wide, even illumination without glare.
Perfect for use in hallways or as a decorative focal point, the brushed aluminum finished sconce uses 16.4 watts with OLED panels offering a 4,000K CCT, a CRI of 80 and an efficacy of 31.1 lumens per watt while delivering 510 lumens. With a depth of 2.25 inches, the sconce is 24 5/8 inches long and 13 inches wide.
Inherently sustainable and precision engineered, the luminaires are individually crafted in WAC's wholly owned, zero landfill manufacturing campus. With instant on/off and dimming capabilities, the Vela family delivers mercury free, consistent beams of light without glare and a 10,000-hour rated life. The OLEDs are uniformly luminous and evenly spaced on the luminaires with utility, proportion and style.
Options include new materials and independently controlled micro-LEDs on a single circuit to enhance light intensity.
