A-Light Wins Three Product Innovation Awards from Architectural Products Magazine

Date: 13 December 2023 Category: Media

Oceanside, CA, December 13, 2023 – A-Light (www.alights.com), an established best-in-class manufacturer of specification-grade interior lighting solutions, is pleased to announce its Lean, Stitch, and Wings sustainable luminaires have each received a 2023 Product Innovation Award (PIA) from Architectural Products magazine.

The PIA recognizes innovative products and applications across the design and construction spectrum. This year, the 13th annual event received a record number of entries. A distinguished panel of designers and lighting specialists skilled in product evaluation judge and evaluate the entries. Manufacturers of products and systems are awarded based on attributes, qualities, functionality, or performance beyond industry standards.

Lean is a 2’ x 2’ patent-pending acoustic lay-in luminaire that becomes part of an architectural ceiling tile while increasing sound absorption across ceiling planes. An indirect distribution delivers a soft, even illumination that suppresses glare and shadows. Sustainability is at the forefront of Lean’s design. Shipping with only three collapsible components, Lean is 80% lighter than a typical 2’ x 2’ fixture. It is estimated that the overall shipping impact is reduced by as much as 88%.

Stitch is a four-foot linear fixture shaped by a translucent material with an organic feel. Developed with a focus on sustainability, all unnecessary components have been stripped away, and non-recyclable materials have been reduced. Its non-woven fabric works as a diffuser, requiring fewer materials; eliminating the need for traditional polymer lenses means less plastic waste is destined for landfills and oceans. 

Wings is a four-foot pendant with a virtually weightless appearance. Its proprietary lightweight base material, new to architectural lighting, reduces glare and creates a more comfortable and collaborative environment.

Shipping with only a few components and collapsible features, Stitch and Wings are 60% lighter than a typical 4-foot linear fixture. The shipping impact is estimated to be reduced by as much as 66%.

All three luminaires are presented in the November/December issue of Architectural Products magazine.
