Two New Organic LED Luminaires from WAC LightingJune 13, 2012 By: Nightclub & Bar
With a focus on eco-friendly nanotechnology and modern aesthetics, WAC Lighting continues to push boundaries with two new Organic LED luminaires that transform the future of lighting into a unique platform for today. WAC, a global manufacturing leader of decorative and architectural lighting, introduces 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,” explained WAC Lighting President, Shelley Wald.
The Vela OLED Chandelier is defined by contemporary profile laser-crafted of aluminum, with 12 OLED panels that illuminate surfaces below, and 12 additional OLEDs that shine upward render a soft ambiance that evokes a lighter sense of space and visual comfort. The chandelier delivers a high light output of 2040 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 4000K 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,” continued Ms. Wald. “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 decorative aluminum profile with six 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 exceptionally thin luminaire, the panels provide a wide, even illumination without glare. The brushed aluminum finished sconce uses 16.4 watts with OLED panels offering a 4000K CCT, a CRI of 80, and an efficacy of 31.1 lumens per watt while delivering 510 lumens. With a depth of merely 2.25 inches, the sconce is 24 5/8 inches long and 13 inches wide.
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.
