CSL (Creative Systems Lighting) Illuminates Industry with 2012 Architectural Luminaire Collection

Technical and Decorative Lighting Innovator Introduces New LED Decorative Solutions for 2012

CITY OF INDUSTRY, CALIF. – CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting), leaders in cutting edge technical and decorative lighting, has announced the debut of its 2012 Architectural luminaire collection. Brilliantly fusing energy-efficient LED solutions with high design and performance, the new architectural series represents an exciting new direction for the CSL brand.

“We relentlessly and rigorously continue to push the boundaries of technology and performance complemented by a keen sense of design and style that deliver unique and intriguing lighting solutions,” said Mark D’Antonio, vice president of sales and marketing for CSL. “These critical elements, combined with our pioneering innovation, have helped make CSL the industry leader it is today. We have introduced several new series within our Architectural suite of products, along with enhancing some of our most popular lines by capitalizing on LED technology. The results of our efforts have meant that the design community and the various market spaces we serve have a complete and versatile range of decorative lighting solutions that meet the highest energy-efficiency standards, while delivering state-of-the-art performance.”

Defined by the clean lines found in European design, the CSL Architectural luminaires are suitable for a range of applications encompassing hospitality, retail, commercial and high-end residential projects— including those seeking LEED-certification or Title 24 compliance. The 2012 collection features 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. Designed for the specific needs of the A+D community, the CSL Architectural luminaires are ADA-compliant, with line and low voltage options, UL/C-UL listed wet or damp location listings, and surface and/or wall mount installations. They also come with multiple lamp source options, including high-performance LED, Xenon, HID and compact fluorescent.

The Entity Series, for example, takes minimalism to the extreme by fusing a sleek concentric cylinder shape with high-performance, energy-efficient LEDs. Featuring a 16W LED system delivering 1100 lumens, Entity can be positioned as a flush or pendant mount in three finishes—satin aluminum, bronze or white. As a pendant, there is even more versatility with three shade options (flat disc, shallow bowl or deep bowl) and a stem kit option. Entity also offers an INC dimmable integral driver and three interchangeable optics (25-degrees, 45-degrees or 65-degrees), as well as the option of an 85-degree optic.

The top-selling Silo has been re-imagined with a new ridged design and the option of either a single 10W or dual 20W LED. Adding a touch of sleek to an interior or exterior space, Silo is available in a satin aluminum, bronze or white finish; comes with three interchangeable optics (25-degrees, 45-degrees or 65-degrees); and can be installed in an up or down position. For true minimalists, the fixture is still available as a CFL or MR16 in a smooth finish.

Another popular fixture, Gravity, is also now available in LED. Featuring a 9W LED and delivering 450 lumens, Gravity is not only energy-efficient, but visually striking with an opal glass inner diffuser and clear glass outer cylinder, diecast aluminum housing and availability in two finishes – satin aluminum or bronze. ADA-compliant and UL/C-UL listed, Gravity is available in wall and flush mount, instantly modernizing the hospitality or commercial space.
