iLight by Luminii Rejuvenates its Commercial-Grade Plexineon Rigid Bendable Linear Luminaires with Technology Enhancements and Product Line Expansion
Factory and field bendable Plexineon Gen 2 are in stock and ready to order. Featuring a host of new improvements including light output and efficacy gains plus all new RGB and RGBW options
Niles, Ill.—Oct 24, 2022—Luminii, a Chicago-based manufacturer of industry-leading specification-grade architectural LED lighting systems, today announced the immediate availability of Plexineon Gen 2 from iLight by Luminii. The Plexineon revamped and expanded product range supports surface, recessed, and suspended applications in both linear and ring mount options. The Plexineon product range has been completely reengineered with an emphasis on creating major improvements that include an over 45% higher visible light output, as well as over 25% higher efficacy gains and higher CRI compared to legacy products, while also adding new RGB and RGBW options to its highly customizable product range.
“iLight was acquired by Luminii in late 2020 as part of the company’s growth strategy”, said Amy Bonder, Chief Commercial Officer for Luminii. “iLight brought with it exceptionally durable and flexible commercial-grade products that complemented our existing linear portfolio while giving our customers options that we wouldn’t have normally been able to support because of the uniqueness of iLights products. Fast forward, we’re delighted to bring to market newly engineered bendable solutions as well as a renewal to pre-existing offerings in the Plexineon range.”
Plexineon linear recessed, surface, and suspended mounts provide the most flexible options for lighting designers who are challenged with producing one-of-a-kind lighting installations. Designed for both commercial interior and exterior accents, this bendable neon alternative provides a beautiful, crisp, and clear line of visible light that can be seen for miles. And because all Plexineon is *IP67, IK10, and 3G rated, they can withstand extreme weather, impact, and vibration, making Plexineon a solid choice for building facades, commercial landscaping, bridges, and any application that requires the resilience that this product range brings to the market. Available in Static White, Monochrome, Pixel, and all-new RGB and RGBW.
Plexineon surface, suspended, and catenary ring mounts bring lighting designers a complete range of solutions for commercial applications that require beautiful and modern accent lighting for both indoor and outdoor installations. The surface and catenary mounts both include horizontal and vertical direct view options, while the suspended is horizontal view only. All Plexineon horizontal rings are available from 6″ to 288″ (24ft) diameters, while the vertical ring option has a min 16″ diameter. Just like the linear, Plexineon rings are all *IP67, IK10, and 3G rated, and can also withstand harsh environmental conditions. Available in Static White, Monochrome, Pixel, and all-new RGB and RGBW, all rings feature finish options including gloss and matte gray, matte black, and matte white.
PLEXINEON SEEING COLORS
With the newly added RGB and RGBW options, Luminii has an opportunity to further streamline operations and make specification even easier by phasing out the iLight Hypnotica line of products. Plexineon now supports all the dramatic effects that Hypnotica historically brought to the category with dynamic color changing and control. With the added benefit of factory bending and even more customization options, it now gives lighting designers a broader range of creative freedom. RGB, RGBW, and Pixel RGBW are available in both the linear and ring mount product category and are offered in surface, suspended, recessed, and catenary options.
PRODUCT AVAILABILITY // FAQ:
Q: When can I order Plexineon Gen 2 products?
A: All Gen 2 Plexineon products are now available for order.
Q: Can I still order Gen 1 Plexineon Products? For How long?
A: We will still support existing orders while materials last, but we encourage our customers to spec the new platform unless it’s a replacement for an existing installation where color matching would be an important factor.
Q: What happens to my existing orders?
A: All existing orders of all Gen 1 products will be fulfilled on schedule with no production disruptions.
Q: What about Hypnotica Products? Are these still available to order?
A: We will still support existing orders of Hypnotica while materials last. All new projects should be specified with the Gen 2 Plexineon product line.
Q: Isn’t Kurba bendable the same thing? What’s the difference?
A: Plexineon and Kurba, though both bendable LED products are quite different. Plexineon maintains its factory-bent shapes without the need for a special mounting channel or additional supports. Plexineon is also more durable with IK10 and 3G ratings making it a great solution for installations that need to factor in environmental stress.

“Working closely with the Thysse design team we wanted to create opportunities for brand integration throughout the building and in multiple mediums. This included art installations, history displays, custom wallcoverings, glass films, signage, and lighting”, said Ryan Frank, Architect at OPN Architects. “The lobby presented itself with an opportunity to do something unique and playful with the lighting and our vision was to recreate the brand’s topography waves across the ceiling making iLight Plexineon the perfect solution to use for the suspended waves.”
