While CSL is best known for pioneering the first MR16 application in recessed architectural downlighting, the CSL Architectural collection represents an exciting evolution for the brand.“For more than 20 years, CSL has created performance-engineered, architectural lighting fixtures that revolutionize the way architects and lighting designers perceive technical performance,” said SteveNadell, president of Troy Lighting-CSL. “We wanted to give architects and designers the precision-engineered, highly-functional lamping technologies that CSL is known for, but also provide them with arange of modern decorative options. This is our way of bringing form and function together, so the A+D community can still tackle complex lighting projects with style.”Defined by the clean lines found in European design, the CSL Architectural collection is suitable for a range of applications, including hospitality, retail, commercial and high-end residential. The line encompasses a large assortment of suspension pendants, wall sconces, brackets and ceiling fixtures made from premium materials such as hand-made Italian glass and precision machined metals, as found in Vertigo and Splat. The fixtures are also ADA compliant, with line and low voltage options, wet and damp location listings, surface and/or wall mount installations, and xenon, fluorescent and LED lamptechnologies.Disc, for example, is the embodiment of pure, sleek, circular geometry; a modern-minded lighting enthusiast’s dream. It features an aluminum body; available finishes including polished nickel and satinaluminum, and high output 2800K, 360LM LEDs. The flush mount design of Eclipse cleverly conceals the light source, but its glow is nonetheless brilliant. The tall, cylindrical structure of Silo is the ultimate modernist solution, with an aluminum body and available finishes including satin aluminum and bronze. Silo is also wet-location listed and ENERGY STAR rated.All of the new CSL Architectural collections can be viewed online at and are available in select showrooms across North America.About CSL® CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting) has been designing and manufacturing performance-engineered architectural lighting fixtures since 1990.
