Irvine, CA, May 5, 2015 – PIXI Lighting today announces its refreshed line of innovative, award winning PIXI FlatLight™ luminaires at LightFair® International, taking place May 5 - 7, 2015 at the Javits Center in New York, NY. Ideal for residential and commercial applications, the new Pixi FlatLight series has improved efficacy at a minimum 85 lumens per watt, Design Lighting Consortium certification, UL listing suitable for dry and damp locations, and cleanable diffuser plates. Hands on demonstrations of all FlatLight Luminaires will take place within booth 4451. Most conventional troffers and luminaires utilize legacy technology form factors resulting in bulky, inelegant designs. For over two years, Pixi Lighting has led the lighting industry with its very slim (just over half-inch thickness) frame due to its unique built-in driver that can be surface-mounted on any flat or hard surface from walls to ceilings and concrete to brick, suspended like a pendant, put into T-grids, surrounded with decorative wood trim or flushed into drywall. Architecturally blending into contemporary or traditional designs, Pixi luminaires use the same edge-lit LED technology found in premium high definition televisions to provide smooth, even, energy-efficient light without glare, flicker or hot spots. The patent-pending Pixi FlatLight ensures optimal light distribution and white uniformity that is costeffective and aesthetically pleasing. Encased in powder coated, cold-rolled steel with included slide-andlock steel TruFlat™ mounting plates, Pixi luminaires are rugged, durable and long-lasting. Available in beveled and straight-edged bezels, Pixi luminaires come in 2700K, 3000K or 4000K CCT versions in 1 foot x 1 foot, 1 foot x 2 foot, 2 foot x 2 foot and 1 foot x 4 foot sizes. Select models now have an expanded list of compatible dimmers. LightFair® International also showcases the new Pixi Square series in 8 inch x 8 inch for easy Do-ItYourself (DIY) standard and shallow recessed can retrofit replacement. Unlike conventional round can retrofits which can cast conically shaped lighting patterns, the Pixi Square offers 115 degrees of beam angle and 162.4 degrees of field angle. The Pixi Square bathes the room in a more natural light wash as the luminous flux is radiated over four times the surface area of a typical round can retrofit. With the same edge-lit technology as the FlatLights, the Pixi Square has no glare or hot spots. With an included E26 adapter and spring clips, installing the Pixi Square into a recessed can is as easy as replacing a light bulb. The dimmable Pixi Square is certified Energy Star, UL, cUL and rated dry, damp, and wet for indoor and outdoor environments. “We are thrilled to introduce our latest FlatLight Luminaire series at LightFair® International and demonstrate the new features and upgraded specifications of our panels,” said Richard Myers, Vice President of PIXI Lighting. “Our latest FlatLight Luminaire provides builders and designers with the utmost versatility for both home and commercial installations due to its ultra-slim profile. Also, our new 8 x 8 Pixi Square recessed can retrofit gives the designer a great new option mirroring the new trends in rectilinear bath and kitchen fixtures.” Pixi FlatLight luminaires are renowned for enabling lighting design innovations in tight spaces that cannot accommodate conventional LED luminaires that are 3 to 5 inches thick. From a pre-war building in midtown Manhattan that had an 8 inch plenum to a downtown L.A. industrial conversion with brick walls and concrete, from a Silicon Valley Class A building to a Chicago contemporary kitchen, from a Honolulu lanai’s bamboo ceiling to a Midwestern four-car garage, Pixi luminaires have been surface mounted to plaster, variedly used as virtual skylights and wall sconces, dropped into T-bars, encased in walnut trim and suspended as a pendant over workshop spaces. Without a bulky, external driver and only about half-inch thick throughout, its application adaptability is limited only by the lighting designer’s imagination.
