Distributing Light Just Right
When fixtures first started incorporating the LED point source, it was a bit messy. Point sources emit light quite differently than the omnidirectional lamps (incandescent, fluorescent, etc.) they replaced. Some fixture manufacturers seemed to simply swap one light source for the other. The result, in many cases, was underwhelming—when not downright maddening. The luminaires were more efficient, but their distribution was problematic—hot spots, shadows, striations, and more. These days manufacturers are much savvier in their application of LEDs. They are much more purposeful in where the point sources are aimed, which creates energy-efficient luminaires that place light precisely where it is needed for both form and function. This issue of SSL Online shares a few gorgeous luminaires that distribute the light just right.
