Date Announced: 15 Jan 2010 Traxon Technologies and e:cue lighting control Showcase their Latest LED Solutions In an event bringing together Chicago Lighting Designers, Architects, and LED Systems CHICAGO, Illinois -– Last night at HUB 51 in downtown Chicago, Traxon Technologies and e:cue lighting control, with Archibald & Meek, presented the Chicago architecture and lighting design communities with the latest solutions in LED technology at their “Light the Lakeshore” event.The evening event featured guest speaker Brian Stacy, IALD, LEED AP, Lighting Leader – Americas Region at ARUP Lighting, who recently led and project-directed the gridshell and exterior lighting systems for Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi, a significant architectural achievement and, to date, the biggest LED project in the world. In addition, Stacy’s lighting design credits include the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, The Morgan Library in New York, and other notable projects. Stacy shared his experiences using LED technology in his designs, and discussed the benefits and possibilities of incorporating LEDs into lighting designs for architecture and media.According to Stacy, “In the wide berth of project typologies with which we are involved, from museums and hospitality interiors, to all ranges of exterior projects such as the Yas Hotel gridshell, a growing use in LEDs has allowed me to utilize this fascinating light source, and all variants of control. Almost every application these days, from standard interior wall and scrim lighting, to full blown artistically-driven media experiences, is a candidate for me to consider the possible use of LEDs.”Tony Carrella, President of Traxon Technologies, commented, “The trend in LEDs is a shift from the peripheral accent and entertainment lighting towards mainstream task and general area illumination. As a global leader in LED fixture and control, finding the balance between a strong RGB and media product offering, and a high-grade white catalogue, continues to be our focus for the future.
