WAC Lighting's "EcoChandelier" Cited as Hot 50 Products by Green Builder Magazine
GARDEN CITY, New York---WAC Lighting President Shelley Wald announced that the Sōl™ Organic LED Chandelier was included in Green Builder Magazine’s “Hot 50 Products.” The magazine described the luminaire as an “EcoChandelier” in the February issue, which was seen by thousands of builders, remodelers, contractors, architects and designers.
“With eight honors and awards, Sol continues to create a tremendous amount of industry excitement,” explained Ms. Wald. “Green Builder is a fabulous magazine and we are honored to have our OLED Chandelier featured in it. Look for new OLED designs from WAC later this year.”
According to Green Builder magazine, “Sol Organic LED Chandelier is art. The design sculpturally represents ancient symbols for the sun. Each eco-friendly chandelier is hand-signed and numbered. ORBEOS OLEDs from OSRAM Opt Semiconductors panels distribute the lighting. A total of seven of these (2.1mm) panels produce 420 lumens, ensuring that light in the room is free of undesirable shadows or glare. Each OLED panel is completely cool to the touch.”
First of its kind, Sol is a luxury decorative chandelier that embodies a sophisticated design made possible with advancements in new lighting nanotechnology. An expression of true sustainability with energy efficient organic light sources, the luminaire was created without the use of heavy metals or other rare earth materials. It is sustainably created of layers of carbon-based materials that self-illuminate in various colors when energized, without impacting the environment. The chandelier is inherently sustainable; designed around energy efficient and environmentally friendly technology, and individually crafted in WAC Lighting’s zero-landfill ISO 14001/9001 certified manufacturing campus.
Adjustable light distribution is delivered for ambient mood lighting, using circular satellite OLED panels that rotate up for indirect lighting, and tilt down to comfortably illuminate the surface below or faces around a table. The central downlight provides direct downward lighting.
