These lamps, light sources, and luminaires round out some of the innovative products to incorporate LED technology during 2015.

Louis Poulsen

F+P 550, Louis Poulsen

The manufacturer recently updated the fixture, making it available in 3000K at 49 lumens per watt. The fixture has a mouth-blown opal glass shade with a matte anodized aluminum reflector, a metalized polycarbonate light conductor, and a heat sink, all suspended via PVC cords from a decorative ceiling canopy.

They offer color rendering within a three-step MacAdam ellipse, and a lumen output 10% higher at the same drive currents as the company’s existing CoB LED series. 


Ultra Glass PAR LED Lamps, Sylvania
