Focal Point to showcase new lighting and acoustic products at LED Specifier Summit

Oct. 18, 2019

Chicago, IL – Focal Point, LLC will be exhibiting their latest luminaires and acoustic solutions at the LED Specifier Summit in Chicago. 

“We continue to develop new products that support the needs of specifiers and contractors with sleek designs and thoughtfully engineered solutions that ease the installation process and deliver more comfortable environments to end-users,” said Mike Thornton, Chief Marketing Officer for Focal Point, LLC. “The LED Specifier Summit gives us a great opportunity to speak directly with these audiences about how we are offering simple and complete solutions that also help create more human-centric spaces.”

When the event is held on November 13 at Navy Pier, the manufacturer of architectural luminaires and acoustic solutions (booth 501 in Festival Hall A) will feature new members of the expanding Seem® 1 family, Seem® 1 Point Source, Seem® 1 LED Direct, Seem® 1 Acoustic, as well as ID+ 3.5" and 4.5" Cylinders. They will also provide a preview of the soon-to-be-released acoustic lighting products Blume and Zyl.

Seem 1 Point Source is a newly released linear luminaire that provides design flexibility with the ability to create a combination of general and accent lighting in individual units or continuous runs. It contains a direct linear LED light and integrated point sources in various configurations to meet the needs of diverse interior spaces.

Seem 1 suspended with direct batwing distribution will also be available for visitors to experience, along with Seem 1 Acoustic, a narrow linear luminaire and baffle system designed and built on the Seem 1 platform with an eco-friendly, sound absorbing housing material. The flexible system can be specified with direct, indirect, or indirect/direct light distributions, or as an unlit acoustic baffle to achieve the desired illumination and acoustic reverberation levels with a coordinated look.

The ID+ 3.5" and 4.5" Cylinders, companions to the ID+ Trimless Downlights with matching aperture, feature a one-piece, die-cast reflector, a knife edge, as well as a decorative reveal that serves as a heat vent while enhancing the aesthetic. They will be on display in surface mount and stem mount options.

Blume and Zyl, decorative shades made of the same sound-absorbing PET felt used on Seem 1 Acoustic, will make their debut at this show. These new acoustic pendants add flair to interior spaces with simple yet intriguing forms, available in various sizes, and can be clustered or used individually. They are powered by the light engines of the ID+ 3.5" and 4.5" Cylinders, ensuring that both lighting and aesthetic design criteria are met.

“As the trend toward creating environments focused on health and well-being continues, we are dedicated to delivering luminaires and acoustic solutions that have been proven to reduce reverberation issues and provide optimal illumination,” remarked Thornton.
