Solutions are becoming more efficient, offering a range of greater functions than ever before. But somewhere along the way it’s important to remember style as well as energy savings and practicality. High quality lighting should be functional, yes. But increasingly it should also be beautiful, enabling spaces, empowering users and inspiring people. It is with this in mind that LEDVANCE, the company that was until recently known as the LEDVANCE is presenting its new portfolio of lighting innovation at LuxLive 2016. NEW CATALOGUE Osram Lamps business unit, is presenting its new portfolio of lighting innovation at LuxLive 2016. LEDVANCE, legally independent since July 2016, is expanding its portfolio of LED luminaires to the trade and retail sales channels, and the company’s portfolio is being successively expanded for smart homes. LEDVANCE also features the largest LED retrofit lamp portfolio from the Osram brand, allowing it to bring style and design, as well as function and efficiency to a wide range of products in the 2016/2017 light season. Looking at the company’s lamp offering, the LED retrofits for increasingly diverse applications are becoming ever more similar to their traditional lighting predecessors, combining design elements to optimise the user’s experience of every product. For example, the LEDVANCE LED Spot portfolio and many other designs are now available for the first time in real glass.
