Patent-pending CLS Optic and central groove allow for independently controllable widespread batwing uplight.

Lasalle, QC Canada (January 17, 2023) Axis Lighting is launching ELLE Pendant, adding to the versatile and extensive ELLE product line. Combining form and function, the luminaire complements architectural features while providing a soft, even glow across surfaces. The lens is the light – delivering uniform direct light through the  patent-pending Curved Luminous Surface (CLS Optic) and wide indirect light via the discreet central groove on top, which allows for independently controllable widespread batwing uplight.

“We are excited to launch ELLE Pendant and provide designers with an innovative, visually interesting luminaire to complement architectural projects and interior designs,” said Michele Bartolini, senior director Axis Lighting. “Designers will also appreciate the game-changing single screw joining system that allows for easily mounting long runs,” Bartolini continued.

ELLE Pendant comes with an optional remote canopy box that houses the drivers that control the power supply for the luminaire’s LEDs. It’s simple to locate which drivers are attached to specific fixtures because they’re mounted in place above the section they power, making any future maintenance easy. The remote canopy box has space for enough drivers to power an eight-foot section of fixture, the maximum standalone length. The decorative curve of the visible canopy plate is a nod to ELLE Pendant’s curved profile, offering a similar aesthetic to the box as the fixture it powers. The standard remote driver option for drywall and grid ceilings can be discreetly tucked away.

With efficacies of up to 115 lm/W, ELLE Pendant can light spaces cleanly and efficiently, providing a simple line of soft glowing light. Compared to similar-sized luminaires, ELLE can deliver the same light output over a greater surface area owing to the curved form of the lightguide, which results in superior visual comfort.
