Alto-Flat, the newest addition to the Archilume family is defined by a strong conical shape.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   Friday, May 13, 2022 — Vancouver, BC.    The Alto, Archilume’s classic gem, finishes at its base with a jewel-like transparent element reminiscent of a craftsman’s cut diamond. The new Alto-Flat introduces a flattened lens that dramatically changes the outline of the original luminaire, its’ unadulterated, simplified suspended conical form speaks to a more minimalist architectural design language.

“The Alto-Flat shifts the luminaire's silhouette to resonate with those seeking more minimalist forms and a more subtle outline than its sister luminaire.”  – Saleem Khattak

The conical housing, fashioned from aircraft-grade machined aluminum in anodized finishes, conceals Archilume’s signature application of total internal reflection optics. The hidden LED technology produces a warm glow range from a full brightness of 3000 degrees Kelvin to a dimmable color temperature of 1800 degrees with 95 CRI. The lower portion of the Alto-Flat luminaire is a transparent acrylic lens with a frosted bottom, emitting a flattering, glare-free light.  As with the entire lighting line at Archilume, the Alto-Flat features a micro-canopy allowing it to be installed as a soloist or grouped to form a unique choral arrangement of light.

At Archilume, we encourage designers to play with light. For us, it begins in the studio. By changing an object’s delineation, we can change the design language to broaden the appeal of the Alto line to suit the unique decorative lighting needs of designers and their clients. “ – Saleem Khattak
