It’s an LED, LED World (Almost): Energy-Efficient Lighting from Troy, Corbett and CSL

By now, you must know Modenus loves a good light. And if it happens to be LED? Even better. For a few examples, we recently came across some LED options from Corbett Lighting, Troy Lighting and CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting), and you’ll be pleased to know that the next generation of LEDs are whiter, brighter and cheaper, with more lumens per watt, more effective heat sinking and more flexibility (we’re talking dimmable).  “Since LEDs are so compact, we are no longer limited to the same old forms for decorative fixtures,” saidSteve Nadell, President of Troy-CSL in a recent conversation. “We can now design and fabricate fixtures in new shapes, sizes and configurations that we couldn’t do before with incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs.” So, contrary to conventional thinking, LED technology and decorative lighting DO go hand in hand and we’re about to show you a few luminous examples.


Stiletto by Corbett Lighting

Corbett Lighting Stiletto SconceWith a champagne silver leaf finish and faceted crystal that picks up the LED light, this wall sconce is all drama. It’s also dimmable – a necessity for most inspired design schemes.


Raleigh by Troy Lighting

Raleigh by Troy LightingOh, steampunk style will you never die? Somehow, the industrial era keeps inspiring product designers; the lighting category is no exception. Raleigh by Troy Lighting is a perfect example of old meets new: the hand-forged ironwork, rustic silver finish and back plate root it in the past, but the dimmable LEDs bring it right back into the present.

Tango by Corbett Lighting

Tango by Corbett LightingTango by Corbett Lighting turned a lot of heads last year – even Tree Hugger’s. Using laser-cut metal formed into a seamless sphere, Tango brilliantly incorporates an LED light source concealed behind a textured bronze exterior and silver leaf finish interior.

Orb by CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting)

Orb by CSLThe Orb, part of CSL’s Architectural line, may not look like much – but the 2800K, 180LM LED bulb and round aluminum body with an opal glass diffuser that rotates 120 degrees off center, allowing users to adjust the direction of light – may sweeten its minimal appeal. Another plus for hospitality designers? It’s ADA compliant.

The incandescent light bulb may have won a nine-month reprieve from Congress earlier this month, but energy-efficient decorative lighting—specifically LED lighting—is clearly not going away. Where do you think LED lighting is headed this year?
