Canadian lighting designer Saleem Khattak, owner of Archilume, is introducing a new configuration of energy-efficient LED chandeliers called the 'P28' at New York's 27th annual ICFF trade show from May 16 to 19.
The 'P28' chandelier offers a large-scale configuration option to create a focal piece in a space. The chandelier composition is completely customisable and installed on site so each installation is unique. The dimming aspect of the luminaires now offers an increased dimming range down to 1%, which allows for greater control to set the ambience created by the multiple cluster configurations.
Visually, the 'P28' luminaires take on a jewel like quality when observed in multiple cluster chandelier configurations. Similar to the rest of the Archilume collection, the 'P28' is versatile, providing endless creative options and offering custom order configurations for commercial and residential projects. The Archilume line also consists of the 'P8', which launched in 2014 and features linear and staggered horizontal configuration of lights, in addition to the pendant lights, ceiling chandeliers, and wall sconces.
In December 2014, Saleem's work took centre stage during the launch of Joel Berman Glass Studios' largest glass art project to date for the new Hamad International Airport in Qatar. While working as senior designer to Berman, Saleem developed patterns for the airport's glass corridors that would reflect the geography and cultural history of the Qatar region. Drawing from the contemplative art of Islam, Saleem developed a contemporary interpretation of the decorative arabesque motifs that figured prominently in the region's architectural history.
Archilume's glare-free luminaires are a revolution in the use of LED lighting owing to the application of the total internal reflection optical principle. Located and manufactured in Vancouver, Canada, Archilume produces modern, energy-efficient LED luminaires in a variety of configurations in addition to producing custom design orders for commercial and residential projects. Archilume's mission is to evolve with the ever-changing LED lighting industry and create products that offer a seamless installation process.
