Eureka Launches New Mill Family of Sound Absorbing Luminaires

Oct. 27, 2020
Acoustic lighting combines soft aesthetic with atmosphere-enhancing functionality.

Montreal Eureka® (, an established leader in decorative lighting solutions, today announced the release of its Mill luminaire. Mill is a range of acoustic luminaires designed to absorb sound and reduce ambient noise in modern spaces with high ceilings or hard surfaces.

Fifteen felt blades create a cylindrical shape, which traps and absorbs sound within the luminaire’s hollow column. When sound waves encounter the felt fibers, the fibers’ slight movement absorbs a portion of the waves. The PET material, which is composed of at least 40% recycled content and is 100% recyclable, has a tested Noise Reduction Coefficient of 0.75 (NRC).

In addition to four standard acoustic material colors of charcoal, silver gray, navy blue, and red, Mill is offered in 26 premium options.  Designers can add bursts of bright color to bring life to a space. The palette also contains a variety of neutral beige, brown, and gray tones for a more conservative or subtle look.

With a common diameter of 14.45”, the luminaires are available in heights of 14”, 25” and 35”. Fixtures can be suspended or ceiling surface-mounted, depending on space needs. Specifiers can choose mounting, size and color options, to create a soft, original aesthetic that enhances a room’s functionality.

Mill offers powerful and evenly diffused downlight in three available outputs, and a frosted acrylic lens contributes to superior light transmission. Suspended luminaires are available with an optional second light source for excellent uplight performance. Both light sources in a fixture can be dimmed independently.

“The idea of this product was to create a cylindrical acoustic family of fixtures,” said Louis Thomas-Bérubé, director of design at Eureka. “With the repetition of the panels, we were able to create rhythm and animate the whole shape.”
