Acuity Brands Introduces Two New Products that Display Unique Characteristics of OLED Lighting Technology

May 2, 2012

Canvis and Trilia debut at LIGHTFAIR 2012 in Acuity Brands booth #4108. 

At LIGHTFAIR® International 2012 Tradeshow and Conference, Acuity Brands, Inc. is showcasing two new OLED luminaire designs, Canvis™ and Trilia™, which will be offered by Winona Lighting. Both of the new lighting series explore the advanced design and performance capabilities of OLED technology, featuring unique configurations and applications designed to create mood and movement in a space.

The Canvis collection is a series of OLED luminaires featuring luminous surfaces, expressed through multiple shapes. Its angles, curves and movement convey mood while providing serene, volumetric light, offering a wide array of lighting design possibilities. The family includes the Twist, Drape, Screen and Pose and the design enables new dimensions in luminaire design and application.

The Canvis Twist luminaire can dynamically change shape by interacting with building occupants through gestural control. The Twist takes a traditional static visual environment and allows it to become nuanced, dimensional and customizable.

The Trilia luminaires are a collection of modular units that allow designers to shape single luminaires into unique, organic networks to deliver comfortable and uniform distribution of light. Trilia mounts at less than three-and-one-half inches below the ceiling and is suitable for many spatial heights and geometries. As a system, the luminaire can be applied in a multitude of ways to provide accent or functional lighting that breaks away from rectangular grid layouts, affording greater design freedom in interior spaces.

Merging innovative design and control with high quality illumination and energy efficiency, Canvis and Trilia utilize efficient and high-performing OLED panels with efficacies of 60 lumens per Watt. The new OLED luminaires are designed for indoor, ambient applications in both commercial and residential spaces, including healthcare, education, retail, office, hotels, restaurants, public spaces and the home.

“Canvis and Trilia realize the promise of solid-state lighting, where designers can transform the lighted environment, increase energy efficiency, and allow us to savor what light can do,” said Peter Ngai, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President, Research and Development. “Profound understanding of the user’s experience is an essential underpinning of true design innovation, with technology as an enabler. Our unwavering focus on light’s unique interaction with people drives us to create the best lighting solutions for our customers.”

The Canvis and Trilia OLED luminaires will be on display at the Acuity Brands booth #4108 at LIGHTFAIR® International 2012 Tradeshow and Conference held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas May 9-11, 2012.

Canvis and Trilia complement Acuity Brands’ commercially available Revel™ and Kindred™ OLED luminaires, now offered through its Winona Lighting unit, a leader in custom luminaire design and manufacturing. Product specifications, ordering information and pricing for the Canvis and Trilia families are available upon request.

All Winona Lighting products, including its OLED portfolio, are available through Acuity Brands global sales representatives and authorized distributors.
