Barbican’s PipeLight System Wins at NeoCon 2017
Barbican, a leading manufacturer of energy efficient commercial and industrial lighting solutions, unveiled a revolutionary lighting system at NeoCon 2017.
Introduced this June at the highly anticipated NeoCon tradeshow, based in Chicago, IL, the PipeLight System drew attention by winning several coveted awards. The PipeLight was awarded Silver in the Decorative Lighting category for Contract Magazine’s Best of NeoCon, which honours new products that are exhibited during the show, and was chosen by architects, designers, and other executive decision makers. The PipeLight also won Honoree for the Lighting category in Interior Design’s HiP at NeoCon. The HiP honours industry people and products. As well, Buildings Magazine recognized the PipeLight as a leading edge new product for 2017 by bestowing it’s Grand Award in the Lighting category at the Product Innovations Awards.
The PipeLight System by Barbican is an innovative, ultra high efficiency LED lighting system. Comprised of straight, curved and corner components, the PipeLight is a modular system that offers flexibility with mounting options, creating endless variations that will suit any environment. Horizontal and vertical components are available in one foot increments up to 10 feet, with specialized connectors between pieces, allowing for extensive runs. Curves and corners allow for creative and dramatic displays that dip under ceiling infrastructure, run parallel to existing piping or change direction from ceiling to wall to floor mounting. Column components create an impressive pillar of light, from floor to ceiling. Each PipeLight component offers seamless construction. Unlike typical cylindrical fixtures which use standard opal acrylics, Barbican’s PipeLight System is lit from end to end using a 6-sided internal board and heat sink system. This assures full and consistent performance throughout the entire fixture, producing an even, ethereal glow. Built from a specially synthesized material that yields 85% light transmission while offering excellent LED hiding properties, this system of fixtures can provide all of the light required in a space without using supplemental down lights. Fully enclosed and washable, PipeLight presents a sanitary solution for healthcare and hospitality settings. With versatile mounting and dimming options, this beautiful cylinder system can create brilliant or ambient lighting to meet any requirement for your next project.
