Now Shipping, v2 Lighting Group’s CORE Luminaires Combine Advanced LED Technology with Modern Sculptural Beauty
Mountain View, CA (June 21, 2012)—v2 Lighting Group, an award-winning manufacturer of modern LED lighting fixtures, is pleased to announce that their entire CORE family of innovative and energy-efficient LED fixtures is ETL Listed and now shipping. Pre-release orders were filled immediately including the new Playboy Enterprises, Inc. headquarters in Los Angeles, Micron Technology in Boise, 8560 Sunset by Gensler in Los Angeles, the Dawson residence in Seattle and France Telecom’s Orange Labs San Francisco.
“I chose v2 Lighting Group’s CORE because it is one of the few LED fixtures with an innovative approach to aesthetics,” said Charles F. Blank, architect for the Orange Labs San Francisco project. “Many LED manufacturers are concerned with luminous performance and energy savings, but few take it to the next level, adding a “sculptural” quality to the luminaire, its suspension and its mounting,” he added.
CORE is a cylindrical luminaire with pendant, sconce, surface mount, and mono-point/yoke versions, all of which are suitable for wet locations. CORE comes in two sizes: the CORE 200 (3.5” dia. X 8” tall) and the CORE 300 (4.5” dia. X 12” tall). Designed and manufactured in California, CORE incorporates the industry-leading Xicato LED module to deliver the highest quality light available on the market today.
CORE has the clean, dramatic lines associated with Art Deco, midcentury and modern architecture. The machined aluminum shell is available with standard or custom cutouts and an extensive number of finishes and colors. The aluminum heat sink inside the shell is revealed as a design element and also has color options. An optional internal reflector baffle illuminates the heat sink and accentuates the design of the fixture.
“CORE was created to give designers maximum freedom to define a unique fixture that best meets both their technical and artistic requirements,” commented Chris Varrin, v2’s founder and the designer of CORE. “Dress it up or strip it down – there are millions of combinations and we can deliver all of them without extra lead time or cost.”
The Xicato LED Modules include 400, 700, 1000, 1300 and 2000 lumen packages with a choice of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K color temperatures, as well as >80 CRI and >95 CRI. The fixtures feature a tool-less, field-changeable reflector system with 20°, 40° and 60° beam patterns. CORE is available with integral or remote-mounted LED drivers with phase control or 0-10v dimming options
