Yes, You Can Expect LED Lighting Maintenance Issues
by Lois I. Hutchinson
Some customers are finding out their "It lasts forever!" LED lighting system, doesn't just sound too good to be true. LED lumen depreciation is commonly expected, but is not the be-all and end-all of luminaire lifetime. There are just too many electronic systems to not expect "lights-out" failures along the way. Drivers seem to be particularly vulnerable to thermal stress and failures, making them a keystone to system lifetime and reliability estimates.
Erdman's Vocabulary Defines Sprawling JustFab HQ
by Lois I. Hutchinson
This, the third office space that eSquared has lighted for this particular client, presented outsized challenges - and long-awaited opportunities - for Principal Erin Edman and Senior Lighting Designer Landon Roberts. At 14 ft, the open, coffered ceilings at the new JustFab Los Angeles-area headquarters do not create a voluminous space, but they go on and on. Erdman's award-winning lighting design succeeds in not adding a lot of complexity to the visual landscape while, here and there, the lighting gets to steal the show, defining spaces and providing effective wayfinding.

Infinite lengths combined with the ability to create patterns with 90° inside or outside corners provide flexibility in design, bringing depth and visual interest to unnoticed areas of commercial spaces.
