From heavy duty to purely decorative, these luminaires represent the latest innovations in outdoor lighting that heed space constraints, safety requirements, and environmental concerns while recognizing designers’ need to create versatile exterior spaces.
Guide, Landscape Forms
Three twisting, multi-height, cast-aluminum panels surround a central light pillar to shape Landscape Forms’ LED bollard Guide. Available in 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K at a CRI of 85, light is emitted through the bollard’s slats at 120-degree angles. Created with global design studio Frog, the surface-mounted fixture measures 435/8" tall by 83/4" wide.
For Marset, the Valencia, Spain–based Sputnik Estudio designed the Santorini series of versatile lanterns with forms reminiscent of those used to light old fishing boats. Each fixture measures 10.16" high and 8.35" wide, and is offered with gray, white, and mustard hued diffusers that can be custom-oriented for a unique installation. The fixtures can be lamped with 14W CFL or 11W LED light sources.
Milan-based Rossi Bianchi Lighting Design reduced the boxy form of a typical lantern to this slender, 2-pound decorative metal frame. Dimmable 15W LEDs in the upper edge of Ipnos’ anodized aluminum profile provide 2700K at a CRI of 85. The base, which is 27.6" tall and 13.8" square, is finished in black and can become a table with the addition of a transparent, methacrylate top.
EcoSpec Linear HP EXT, EcoSense
This high-output, low-profile exterior luminaire is fitted with a glass lens and vents to mitigate moisture build-up. Offered in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K, the fixture is fully dimmable, and it offers color consistency within two MacAdam Ellipse steps. It is IP66 and UL rated for wet locations, and its maximum run length is 55' at 120V and 125' at 277V.
L05175 and L05176 Drivers, Lumotech
This duo of fully programmable, outdoor-rated drivers is designed for use in high-bay and exterior applications. The 75W L05175 and 150W L05176 (shown) Class 2, IP65-rated and dimmable non-isolated drivers can support output voltages of up to 280V DC.
FLL and FXL Floodlights, Hubbell Lighting
Hubbell Lighting is adding two high-output fixtures to its F Series of floodlights. The FLL (left) uses 28 LEDs to deliver 8,054 lumens at 80.5 lumens per watt. The FXL (right) uses 56 LEDs to deliver 16,358 lumens at 82 lumens per watt. Both provide 5100K at a CRI of 67. Vented housings isolate the LED module to improve performance, the company says.
Parco 360, HessAmerica
This pole-mounted LED luminaire gives the typical outdoor fixture a minimalist bent. At 12' tall with a cross-section of 7.5" by 3.5", the 34W Parco 360 is lamped with two modules that each include 14 LEDs and a prismatic optical acrylic lens. Offered with Type II and Type III optical distributions, the luminaire emits no uplight at 90-degrees horizontal and above.
