The idea of guiding light playfully through invisible apertures to add more aesthetic appeal to the interior of a house is an idea that dates all the way back to antiquity. Available in two different pattern models, Aperture is a linear LED pendant luminaire featuring a fascinating open aperture design. Aperture Circles consists of a series of circular cellular voids that allow clear views through the luminaire to the architecture. The minimalist design of this luminaire delivers an outstanding optical and energy performance. Its anodised architectural grade extruded aluminium components are precision-machined and factory-installed for a perfect fit. Aperture does not require any electrical connections at the fixture joints and can be installed as an independent pendant or as a continuous lighting system with virtually seamless transitions. It delivers highly advanced functionality and energy efficiency. Its innovative ocular anidolic optic technology provides a precisely controlled batwing light distribution with no view of the LED point source, which makes it integrate easily with modern architectural designs. The luminaire’s wide-angle indirect distribution option allows for greater on-centre spacing with a uniform, luminous ceiling plane for maximum illumination efficiency and lower energy density.
