Launched at Lightfair
Lia - A sophisticated acoustic pendant with an air of mystery
Lia™ is an ideal solution to render any space more inviting and inspiring. Combining a sophisticated design with high-quality lighting and superior acoustics, the acoustic luminaire brings together form and function in perfect harmony. Impeccably suited to collaboration hubs, gathering points such as entrance lobbies or hospitality areas – anywhere striking visuals are paramount and exceptional sound dampening effects needed – it comes in three sizes (3', 4’, and 5’ diameters).
It uses the popular Skydome pendant as a light engine, embellished with PET felt fins that create a mysterious and light volume where light peeks through, and shadow and transparency effects transform at every viewing angle.
IALD Immersive Lighting Installation Collaboration with FMS
The Image Left, Behind
Making their debut at Lightfair and curated by the IALD, seven spaces allowed visitors to ponder on the theme of the Circular Economy. In our installation, designed with FMS, guests entered a reflective and immersive place to look at the unlimited possibilities of a single action that creates a dazzling sensation of never-ending space. Many guests made multiple visits just to see how the space grew and evolved during the event.

This year's show was a huge success!
The five independent companies of the Legrand Lighting Sector hosted the Plug 'N Pour Lounge, where attendees could start the day off with a caffeine jolt and enjoy a refreshing beverage while chatting with industry peers and colleagues before show close. The convenience of the charging stations for electronic devices and the many new products displayed in the co-located booths were certainly crowd-pleasers!

The simple shape marries with powerful optics and a wide range of lighting options, making it a lighting tool of choice for open ceiling applications that really make interior architecture shine.
A very short length of 4.15" with a short cone, a medium length of 7.3" with short and tall cones, as well as custom lengths offer a host of possibilities for low-ceiling spaces and to fulfil the vision of specifiers.
