Designed and manufactured by A-Light Architectural Lighting, Lean is an acoustic, lay-in luminaire that delivers a soft, even illumination suppressing glare and shadows.
Lean is a 2 x 2 feet patent-pending acoustic lay-in luminaire that becomes part of an architectural ceiling tile while increasing sound absorption across ceiling planes.
An indirect distribution delivers a soft, even illumination that suppresses glare and shadows.
Designers can use the multi-functional fixture to turn project tiles into dynamic designs in applications such as office spaces.
For its design rooted in sustainability from production, to materials, to packaging, Lean has recently been awarded a 2023 Green Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Sustainability is at the forefront of Lean’s design.
Shipping with only three collapsible components, Lean is 80% lighter than a typical 2’ x 2’ fixture.
It is estimated that the overall shipping impact is reduced by as much as 88%. Up to 168 Lean fixtures can fit on 1 standard shipping pallet.
To put that into context, if these fixtures ship 500 miles from our factory in Oceanside to San Francisco, the designers save 150 kg of CO2.
Lean is also Declare label listed, which enhances transparency and simplifies material tracking.
The Declare label will help to identify Lean’s components, including red list-free non-harmful chemicals such as the electrical wiring.
