New Peerless® Venue™ Luminaire for Open Ceilings

Nov. 27, 2020
Suspended luminaire family delivers uniform illumination within curved aesthetic for open ceilings.

Atlanta, Ga. Peerless®, an Acuity Brands company, today announced the release of its Peerless® Venue™ suspended luminaires. The new family of luminaires has been designed specifically for open ceilings.

Offering both visual comfort and uniform illumination in spaces with deconstructed ceilings, Peerless Venue luminaires bring a unique look and feel to environments. The luminaires are available in rectangular and square shapes, each in either a convex or concave curvature.

As direct/indirect luminaires, Peerless Venue delivers direct light distribution through a dual optical system that creates uniformity across the lens. Indirect optics are recessed along the top of the fixture, distributing light evenly across a ceiling plane. Additionally, Peerless Venue is available with direct-only distribution. Optional dual dimming with an eldoLED® driver provides independent control for uplight and downlight for smooth, flicker-free dimming performance.

Networked lighting control is available when Peerless Venue luminaires are specified with nLight® wired controls, which use standard CAT-5e cables, an occupancy sensor, and wall stations.

Made from a one-piece, thermoformed automotive-grade polymer housing, Peerless Venue luminaires are available in black, white, painted aluminum or a range of custom colors.

“Peerless Venue evokes a feeling of clouds floating across a ceiling,” said Jamal Smith, business unit leader at Peerless. “This unique aesthetic, combined with high-quality uniform illumination, enables a designer to define spaces where people gather and collaborate."
