iilluminati: Laurentiu Vlad’s Top 5 Lighting Products

With so many LEDs and lighting products available in the market, it can be tough to find the perfect options for upcoming projects. That’s why we spoke with Laurentiu Vlad, president and founder of Luminii, to share his top five lighting products for a range of spaces — from highly occupied environments requiring strong health and safety efforts, to high-end residential spaces where form and function matter.

We chatted with Vlad to learn about his favorite lighting products and how they solve challenges for lighting designers and architects alike. Read our interview below to discover game-changing lighting products and application ideas for your next project.

Stenos Track

Why do you love this product?

There are many reasons to love this product. It is the smallest two circuit architectural low voltage track on the market. Stenos Track is very quiet; the flawless circular beam coming from a micro-linear form factor is very attractive and when paired with our unique louvers, it really makes the product disappear.

What makes this product unique?

The ability to simply rotate the modules to change the circuit is a unique and patented feature.

What are some application ideas for this product?

I think this product really allows Luminii to penetrate the high-end residential market on top of  retail, hospitality, and commercial office applications.

Kendo S

Why do you love this product?

Kendo S is one of the pillar products for Luminii. Back when it was first introduced, it was the shallowest dot-free linear luminaire on the market.  

What makes this product unique?

The overall configurability of this very small scale luminaire is the main feature for it.

What are some application ideas for this product?

Direct and indirect view applications where depth is an issue are ideal for Kendo S.

PURIFII™ AER W

Why do you love this product?

The PURIFII AER W upper air germicidal ultraviolet (GUV) lighting system really speaks of the engineering knowledge and capabilities our team has. 

What makes this product unique?

It is arguably the most architectural-looking GUV disinfection product on the market. The unique design incorporates specialty LEDs with a very precise reflector system and this combination delivers a very focused and efficient beam of UV-C that is extremely effective against a wide variety of pathogens while being operated in occupied spaces. 

What are some application ideas for this product?

Anywhere where people gather or do group activities.

Stenos Downlight

Why do you love this product? 

Just like the Stenos Track, the Stenos Downlights are super small, but pack many outstanding features challenging the established form factors on the market. They are really disrupting. 

What makes this product unique?

Stenos are the smallest adjustable IC and wet rated downlights on the market. This tops the other great features of the product, which include great color and beam uniformity, very high efficacy, and a multitude of beam adjusting accessories. The very low wattage, combined with the constant voltage design, makes installation much easier as many units can be installed on a single remote Luminii power supply. The minimal height makes it an ideal product for applications where ceiling space is a constraint.

What are some application ideas for this product?

Anywhere where downlights are used, which is pretty much everywhere!

Linii

Why do you love this product?

This direct view mud-in linear system has the ability to quickly add uniqueness and drama to any space. Linii gives designers a lot of flexibility and allows them to push their creative boundaries.

What makes this product unique?

Linii is a really thought-out linear mud-in system that was developed with ease of installation and maintenance in mind.  The construction of the product is very robust. It ships complete as an assembled fixture giving specifiers and installers the peace of mind that the end result will look just like it was envisioned. 

What are some application ideas for this product?

High-end residential and hospitality are some of the main applications for Linii.
