New Moonring Luminaire from Architectural Lighting Works Sweeps Through and Around Commercial Interiors with Harmonic Halos of Light

Sept. 29, 2015
In Addition to Circles, Moonring’s Modular Arcs Connect
to Form S-Shape and Curvilinear Configurations

HAYWARD, Calif. – September 29, 2015 — Architectural Lighting Works (ALW) — an international manufacturer of high-performance, commercial luminaires designed for use in office, retail, hospitality, civic and academic environments — announces the release of Moonring.
Available in suspended and surface mount models, Moonring is a simple, decorative luminaire that emits a soft, mystical gleam from a flexible LED source woven within a narrow, 1-inch curved housing.

Moonring circles (4-, 5-, 6- and 8-foot diameters) are formed from four joined arc segments. These same arc segments can also be specified as individual luminaires or joined together to form a wide variety of S-shape and curvilinear configurations including squigglylines, looping weaves, rounded radials and asymmetric spirals. When paired with ALW’s compatible Lightplane 1 luminaire, Moonring arcs can also be configured to form stadium ovals, rounded rectangles and switchbacking lines of light.

“ALW is empowering specifiers to throw their ceilings and walls a curve. We know the circular Moonring shapes will be popular, but what we believe will really excite designers and architects is the ability to snake, swirl and spin refined illumination throughout their projects,” said CEO Shira Steinbeck. “To paraphrase Peter Falk in The In-Laws: ‘Serpentine Specifiers. Serpentine!’”

The competitively priced Moonring is available in 3000K, 3500K and 4000K CCT and is powered by a remote 0-10V, DALI, DMX or Lutron® Hi-Lume dimmable driver. Finish options are aluminum, black, white or any RAL color.

“As Moonring gains traction in the marketplace, we will look at expanding the product’s options,” added Steinbeck. “Arcs with tighter radii, a recessed model and additional lumen packages are possible line extensions we will evaluate.”
