Tech Lighting, a leader in sophisticated, modern design combined with the latest advancements in lighting technology, has won the prestigious LIGHTFAIR® Innovation (LFI) Award for its ELEMENT® Merge Recessed Linear System in the “Best Commercial Indoor” Category.
Creating a continuous, uninterrupted line of beautiful glare-free LED indirect light, the ELEMENT Merge Recessed Linear System inconspicuously places light where it’s needed without drawing attention to the fixture itself. In addition, via the Merge FreeJack, more than 80 Tech Lighting pendants and more than 25 Tech Lighting spot heads can be added directly into the channel at any point along its concealed low-voltage bus system for simultaneous accent or task illumination.
Whether being used to highlight architectural elements or deliver well-controlled general illumination, the ELEMENT Merge puts the focus on the room. Static white (2700K, 3000K or 3500K), programmable white (2700K to 4000K), or RGB lines of uniform LED light can be designed to make same-plane 90° turns or perpendicular transitions from ceiling to wall for enhanced design interest.
The main linear channel is static white with multiple CRI and color temperature options. Two styles of spot heads—Gimbal (top left) or Drop-down (bottom left)—for accent and task lighting can be integrated directly into the system and are available in multiple CRI, color temperature and beam spread options, each producing 830 delivered lumens while consuming just 9 watts. The Gimbal heads do not require the Merge Freejack as they’re mounted within the Merge channel.
According to Josh Weiss, CEO of Tech Lighting parent company Generation Brands, “Merge completely rethinks linear recessed lighting and recessed track lighting while combining the functionality of both in an independently controllable, configurable and architecturally beautiful system. It’s remarkably flexible to add multiple layers of light.”
The LFI Innovation Awards highlighted the industry’s most innovative products and designs introduced during the last 12 months. The Awards had 286 entries spanning 14 categories, with each submission judged by an independent panel of lighting professionals.
