Architectural SSL's Product Innovation Awards (PIAs) showcase the latest and greatest advancements in the lighting industry. Here are the 2023 honorees in the track lighting, omnidirectional, and multiform factor categories.

Track lighting

T105xL Narrow Profile Wall Wash Track Fixture family, Juno Lighting/Acuity Brands

With an integrated, compact LED driver housing that powers an advanced light engine with two LEDs per fixture, this Juno Trac wall wash fixture delivers uniform light via seven possible lumen packages, ranging from 1,700 to 6,300 lm and in CCTs from 2700K to 4000K. A patented hyperbolic reflector regresses the LEDs, minimizing glare while creating a smooth, wide beam pattern. The T105xL’s designed center of gravity prevents the track from tilting or twisting regardless of its aim or rotation, while its carbon footprint is 30% smaller than the company’s current track wall wash fixture family. Available in a white, black, or silver finish with an array of accessories, including snoots and barn doors. juno.acuitybrands.com 

Juno Trac WarmDim Technology, Juno Lighting/Acuity Brands

Now available with Juno’s T381L and T261L track fixtures, the company’s WarmDim technology replicates the feeling of halogen lighting, but with the operating life and efficiency of LEDs. Compatible with several factory-approved dimmers, WarmDim provides gradual and uniform dim-to-warm control—3000K to 1800K—while delivering up to 1195 lm using 16W and a standard minimum CRI of 90. The LED driver is contained in a side-mounted, vertical housing to maximize thermal efficiency and minimize fixture size. juno.acuitybrands.com  

Uniscan, ERCO Lighting, Inc

To meet the specific illumination needs of gallery and museum exhibits, the compact, cylindrical Uniscan track light offers 12 interchangeable optics. ERCO’s darklight lens enables precise light distributions with no spill light or glare. Available in CCTs ranging from 2700K to 4000K, tunable white, and RGBW. On-board dim, Casambi Bluetooth, or Zigbee allows for interactive control and design. ERCO procures and disposes materials for its products in accordance with the European Environment Agency’s WEEE directive. erco.com


Monopoint, Lucifer Lighting Co.

This patent-pending cylinder contains an integrated J-shaped elbow that allows for a full 90° tilt and 365° rotation with a 1' maximum drop length. Suitable for many environments, including residential and commercial office, Monopoint can be installed with a zero-sightline, junction box mounting plate, or ceiling mount junction box; optics that integrate reflection, refraction, and TIR; and 10°, 15°, 25°, 40°, and 60° beam spreads. Available in anodized aluminum finishes with brushed metal or matte surface treatments, as well as powder-coated options or custom RAL matching. Monopoint complies with JA8-2019 standards and is Declare-listed. luciferlighting.com

Viga, Insight Lighting 

Functional and decorative, Viga provides a comfortable ambience in spaces that require indirect light. The optics of the linear light produce a batwing beam of indirect light and a reflected lateral/downlight beam. The luminaire is offered with low, medium, and high outputs, CCTs of 2700K through 4000K, with a standard CRI of 82+ and optional 90+ CRI. Viga is available in single fixture lengths of 24" to 96" and in multiple mounting options: power-over-cable, rigid pendant, and extended arm wall-mount. insightlighting.com 

Multiform factor

Clermont, Luminis

This family of interior and exterior luminaires allows designers to mix and match optic requirements while maintaining a consistent design aesthetic for a range of “curb to cube” applications, including roadways, pathways, offices, and lobbies. A classic, beveled silhouette with no visible screws or bolts houses microprisms that uniformly output up to 18,442 lm in Type II, III, IV, or V standard IES distributions. Cast metal components are made entirely from recycled aluminum, while extruded and fabricated parts are made from at least 58% pre-consumer recycled aluminum. Luminis recycles at least 95% of scrapped aluminum material. Clermont offers seven mounting options, 10 standard finishes, the potential for nLight lighting controls, and an optional glare-managing comfort optic or advanced high-output performance optic to reduce dark zones and enhance visibility. clermont.luminis.com 

Melli, Selux Corp.

This IP65-rated family of luminaires offers five mounting options—surface, wall, catenary, rigid stem, and pole—to deliver diffuse, precision, or spot lighting for exterior applications, including plazas, shopping centers, and pedestrian areas, with its cohesive aesthetic and form factor and a clear or diffuse cylinder. Melli uses Selux’s Gen5 light engine, which offers Type I to Type V round distributions and up to 3,254 lm. The IP65- and IK10-rated luminaire is available in CCTs of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, and 5000K and in several standard or custom finish colors. Declare-listed. selux.us
