Luminii Launches Stenos™, Architectural Grade Micro Linear Track and Downlight Systems

April 5, 2021
Engineered with a proprietary micro-optics engine, STENOS light sources push more light forward in a compact package delivering superior uniform light output, color consistency, and high CRI. 

Niles, Ill.—April 5, 2021—Luminii, a Chicago-based manufacturer of industry-leading specification-grade architectural LED lighting systems, today announced the immediate availability of the company’s STENOS micro linear platform. The ready-to-order and field configurable slimline linear product family is available in both a track and downlight system, encouraging lighting designers and architectural professionals to create unique and sophisticated lighting installations across a broad range of applications.

At the heart of the STENOS system is an all-new and proprietary micro-optics engine.  This ultramodern engine has been designed around the latest LED technology, a Titanium Dioxide Chip Scale Package LED.  Featuring a custom narrow 15° TIR native beam and a +/- 30° bidirectional tilt, Luminii’s micro-optics engine is the foundation for both the STENOS Downlight and highly configurable STENOS Track Systems.

“We brought together a world-class engineering team to develop our micro linear products and systems”, said Jeff Parker, CEO of Luminii. “By investing in our product development at all levels of the process, it gave us the sophistication required to create intricate and unique design details from the LED to the industrial design spanning multiple patents. Moreover, our optics are the most advanced in the industry with more output and efficiency than anything available today.”


Available in both a surface and recessed option, the STENOS Track system features an immaculate circular beam quality from a one-of-a-kind micro linear form factor. The STENOS ambient and directional modules seat flush in the track system creating a seamless architectural effect and deliver up to 1200 lumens per foot. The modules feature endless flexibility and can be added, removed, and repositioned with ease using simple tools. Additionally, STENOS Track is field cuttable and features an array of easy to install joiners while its two-circuit track enables a straightforward set-up of two separately controllable zones. Simply remove, rotate, and re-insert the module to change the circuit.

STENOS Downlight

The STENOS architecturally-designed Downlight portfolio is uniquely small, consisting of three (3”, 5”, 12”) discreet micro-linear downlight options, producing an output range of 250-1260 lumens.  All options feature perfect beam quality featuring a +/- 30º aimable tilt, and beam shaping accessories providing a wide range of flexibility for any project. STENOS downlights are field configurable, featuring a constant voltage design that enables multiple fixtures to operate from a single power supply, resulting in a simplified installation and overall cost savings.

Total Control with STENOS Easy Snaps™

Beam shaping accessories support both the Downlight and Track Directional Modules. Customers now have the freedom to customize their lighting designs with supporting STENOS Easy Snap accessories, including an Elliptical (15º x 30º), 30º, 55º, and Louver, all 100% interchangeable allowing beam shaping and easy adjustments even after install.*

“Beyond size options and optics, Luminii customers are also seeking solutions that give them greater design flexibility on the job,” said Amy Bonder, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Luminii. “With the addition of STENOS Easy Snap accessories, we can now support them in new ways, helping them achieve their visions for any space. The thoughtful simplicity put into Luminii’s micro linear designs is a game changer and major advantage for lighting designers and architects who require environmental adaptability with the added benefit of nuancing spaces as requirements change over time.”

STENOS Track and Downlight are available for order in a variety of sizes, light outputs, and CCTs. Standard finishes include black and white painted hardware. STENOS is T24 and Title 24/JA8 compliant to support energy and sustainability initiatives across applications.
