NGL "RECOGNIZED WALL WASH, DOWNLIGHTS"

SELUX KJU, M36, & OLIVIO SISTEMA
NGL "OUTSTANDING DIMMING, SERVICEABILITY, & VERSATILITY"

The Kju decorative square pendant has smooth dimming and a diffuser that controls glare. The M36 not only creates various lines of light, but also has a color temperature that can be digitally controlled. Selux's 3rd winner is the Olivio Sistema, an outdoor fixture with multiple heads that can be arranged in any direction, as well as staggered.

 


LOUIS POULSEN LP CIRCLE PENDANT
NGL "OUTSTANDING SERVICEABILITY" 

Another decorative winner is the LP Circle Pendant with a highly efficient acrylic diffuser that creates a comfortable and uniform distribution. When looking down on the fixture (ex- from a staircase), there is a ring of light around the edges creating a clean, even glow.

  


NGL "OUTSTANDING DIMMING & RECOGNIZED PENDANTS" 

USAI's color technology, Warm Glow Dimming, offers a smooth warm glow that was once only seen with incandescent sources. It's a great way to update a space to LED. Combined with Max Output, this product works well for high ceiling applications. USAI's Cylinder series was recognized in the pendant category for their sleek and colorful architectural design.

  


INTENSE LIGHTING GRAVITY CYLINDER
NGL "OUTSTANDING EFFICACY"
  

This cylinder is not only a decorative luminaire, but packs a lot of power, up to 7000 lumens. It is another great selection for high ceilings. The color quality and even dimming also contributed to the impressive efficacy of this fixture.
