Welcome to Light Connect Monthly!

A re-cap of the former 3 weeks of content, and more.

So many things happened this month! At the beginning Tegan Lighting took over our Instagram page, we announced a new partnership with Leotek, in the middle of June we brought on a stellar addition to our team: Annette Webb, and then the spec team headed out to Vegas for Lightfair to catch up with old friends and learn about the latest products released by our manufacturers!

Annette joins our team with an incredible work ethic, knowledge of the lighting industry and the honesty we strive for.

You have likely seen this face before, as Annette has made quite an impact on the Arizona market with over 25 years of experience in lighting. She was the co-owner of a lighting agency, and most recently spent over 17 years working for Philips/Signify.

Lighting isn't Annette's only passion though. She has been married to her wonderful husband Gary for over 20 years, and has a great love for animals-especially her 100 pound pit-bull "Diesel"-her baby (pictured above). She also loves to hike, and take Pilates reformer classes in her free time.

Please join us in welcoming Annette to our team!

The first and only 4” linear downlight to install just like a cross tee in a suspended ceiling. The GEMINI revolutionizes the installation process to achieve linear lighting on-center with the grid by replacing the actual cross tees. Typical linear downlights require a custom grid opening to be constructed in order to support the fixture, while the GEMINI has integrated cross-tees to create this on-center opening without additional grid components. This simplifies installation and allows for a more cohesive ceiling aesthetic. Offered with a single 4” wide lens, or a dual lens option that matches the surrounding grid lines, the GEMINI provides a low-glare, simple to install, linear downlight lighting solution while also conserving plenum space.

OverflyDesign by Marc Sadler

for Olev

Sadler_39_ph2 image

French citizen born in Austria, Marc Sadler currently lives in Milan. Experimentation with plastics has often formed a key part of his activity. He already showed a strong curiosity for the subject choosing it for his thesis at ENSAD in Paris. Citizen of the world (he has lived and worked for many years in Europe, North America and Asia), he is a consultant for companies in the fields of home furnishings, large and small household appliances, lighting, technically advanced products, and sports. Despite his reputation as a technical designer, Marc Sadler has a strong feeling for painting and drawing, finding it so emotionally absorbing as to consider it his real passion.

As a 4-time winner of the Compasso d’Oro, the most coveted and authoritative prize in the world of design, Marc Sadler will be the new creative mind behind the 2019 Olev collection, which was presented in Milan.

“Designing for OLEV means following the two ‘souls’ of the company, which apparently seem antithetical, but in reality meet and combine in an extremely coherent pathway.

The purely technical soul, which however doesn’t disregard embellishing details, couples with the decorative soul, which has its strength in the research and attention to details.

Different souls, but with common threads that would delight everyone who, like me in this case, has the chance to orchestrate a unique image of the company that will display its real essence on the outside.

I took up this challenge with great interest given the impressive expertise on hand – Andrea’s knowledge in particular and his sincere and enthusiastic aptitude for experimenting new ways of “doing”: more and better.

A combination that will definitely amaze you!”

Rowan ShadesDesign by Rowan Chase

for Tegan Lighting

1ba0b465-1e81-432d-8c49-9a4b8c20f558 image

A resident of the area for more than 40 years, Chase was raised in a household that encouraged an appreciation of its natural surroundings. There was freedom to sleep under the stars, build forts and explore caves on the family’s sprawling acreage. Tools were available for fabrication and invention, and it was during this period of exploration and experimentation that the foundation was laid for Chase’s artistic pursuits.

Vibrant color and high contrast are the hallmarks of Rowan Chase shades. His works, primarily landscapes and fluid abstracts, are informed by the undulating hillsides, broad ocean vistas and wild beauty of his home on California’s Central Coast.

Tegan Lighting offers their exclusive, high output Kore Ambient LED Pendant technology with Rowan shades for commercial and hospitality applications. Each Rowan Shade pendant is handmade by the artist and features designs from his portfolio printed on 100% cotton velvet watercolor paper. Focused on both aesthetics and function, the pieces are backed by a protective liner and mounted on white powder-coated lampshade rings for easy cleaning. Additionally, they are sealed with a UV-blocking matte urethane to ensure color saturation and durability.

Restless, always searching for new challenges that take him to evolve.

Action, don’t think, just feel, create and believe.
