Hyperbolic LED Recessed Lighting

Are you tired of having the glow of a recessed light distracting your eyes away from the wonderful space you are trying to light? We found an interesting article from Juno Lighting that introduces a new technology that makes recessed lighting more approachable.

In 2014, Juno Lighting released a technology called a hyperbolic LED trim, also known as “Silent Ceiling” for 4, 5, and 6 inch Juno LED luminaries that was crafted to reduce the glare of a recessed light and also maximize luminaire efficiency in your home.

This detailed diagram shows the difference between the hyperbolic reflector and the standard cone reflector.

Juno-Hyperbolic

 

“The hyperbolic shape takes advantage of the directional nature of LED light sources, spreading and directing light down toward the work plane.” (Juno Lighting, 2014).

Juno-Hyperbolic2

The visual difference between the hyperbolic LED trim versus the standard trims is outstanding. Your eyes are drawn to the beautiful space being lit – instead of the glare of the recessed lighting. By changing the shape of the reflector from a cone to a hyperbolic style, it provides better light distribution for LED sources.

Lighting Styles

Is your home in desperate need of something unique? It’s hard to keep up to date with the modern trends of lighting in today’s society, but thinking “outside-the-box” can definitely give you an edge with style. Hanging just one fixture in a room is no longer the most popular style. Nancy McCoy (a lighting designer from San Francisco, USA) has shown a couple ways to make your home “pop” by using two different techniques of lighting.

Cluster (184x280)

By having a cluster of lighting fixtures, it provides freedom to move furniture around in many areas of the room, but also adds a bold sophistication.

Track (185x276)

Rail lighting is another designer trend. It is a unique way to pull electricity around the room, but it also stands out as a sculptural design.
