Vela eco-friendly OLED luminaires by WAC

September 26th, 2012 by retail design blog

Creating a symbiosis of eco-friendly nanotechnology and modern aesthetics that simply inspires, WAC Lighting continues to push boundaries with two new Organic LED luminaires that transform the future of lighting into a unique platform for today. WAC, a global manufacturing leader of decorative and architectural lighting, introduces the Vela Organic LED chandelier with a matching OLED wall sconce. “Designed and engineered to stimulate curiosity and aesthetic appeal among the design and specification community, our next generation OLED luminaires raise the bar with a unique lighting experience of vision and sustainability,” explained WAC Lighting President, Shelley Wald.

The Vela OLED Chandelier is defined by a dramatic contemporary profile laser-crafted of aluminum, with 12 OLED panels that illuminate surfaces below, and 12 additional OLEDs that shine upward to render a soft ambiance that evokes a lighter sense of space and visual comfort. The chandelier delivers a high light output of 2040 lumens while offering a CRI (color rendering index) of 80 and an efficacy of 35.2 lumens per watt. The luminaire features a total of 24 OLEDs with a CCT (correlated color temperature) of 4000K while using just 58 watts of power. Aircraft cables suspend the chandelier from the ceiling, with a height adjustment up to 36 inches.

The Vela OLED wall sconce is designed in a unique decorative aluminum profile with six sophisticated OLED panels on its perimeter. Four square panels are connected in the center, by cross-shaped arms that are attached to two OLED panels on the ends. Housed within this exceptionally thin luminaire, the panels provide a wide, even illumination without glare. Perfect for use in hallways or as a decorative focal point, the brushed aluminum finished sconce uses 16.4 watts with OLED panels offering a 4000K CCT, a CRI of 80, and an efficacy of 31.1 lumens per watt while delivering 510 lumens. With a depth of merely 2.25 inches, the sconce is 24 5/8 inches long and 13 inches wide.
