The Next Big Thing
3D printing has been around for some time, but the way in which Cooper Lighting Solutions is approaching this technology allows for the designer to control the outcome of the shape, color, and texture of the light.
New colors that are on trend, can easily be introduced.
Textures that inspire a designer, can be applied.
And geometric shapes that are within the limits of the printer’s capabilities, can be formed.
Design development of these products is within days or weeks, not months or years.
Features and benefits
Shaper 3D Printed Luminaires offer designers the ability to customize different shapes, textures, and colors, to create their own products, in a way that has not been done before.
- Products range from 8-12” in height and diameter to over 16”x16”x16”.
- Four CCTs at 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K at 90 CRI.
- 18+ soft neutral color options and over 11 different textures.
Similar pendant products on the market are made with materials that may cost more in both manufacturability and raw materials. For example, some of the 3D printed textures might emulate ceramic textures … With 3D printing technology, a designer can be inspired by a texture, create it digitally, then apply it to a lighting fixture.
The Shaper 3D printed products currently can be recycled (the shades) and the extruded material has a 22% lower impact on carbon footprint than aluminum. Shaper 3D printed products are also BAA, or Buy American compliant.
Ideal for these spaces
Shaper 3D Printing products are positioned to be used in both hospitality settings as well as when performance lighting is needed. Mixing these different lighting shapes and colors will also generate the best combination of aesthetics that can help define mood, ambiance, and adequate levels of light.
