Whitegoods Lighting launch Line of Light at Light&Building 2008
Gavin Harris was the winner of the Brilliant Light competition run by RIBA Journal and Whitegoods Lighting in 2006 and we were pleased to launch his product “Line of Light” at Frankfurt. Gavin’s design was chosen from a selection of designers who were challenged to come up with a design that embodied the Whitegoods philosophy. The prize was to have the concept engineered and put in to production.
Line of Light is simple in the extreme: a unique linear indirect lighting system for various applications, with a wide range of mounting options. The launch proved to be as successful as we had hoped and the feedback from visitors was excellent – both positive and encouraging. Billed as ‘the most discreet range of architectural lighting in the world’, reduction of detail is at the heart of the Whitegoods Lighting philosophy which led to the development of this family of luminaires and our philosophy remains at the heart of our success:
Reduction of detail
Seamless architectural integration
Logical, modular, systems and families of product
Ease of specification, installation and maintenance
Unusually, Whitegoods have invested a lot of design energy on simplifying the installation methods, creating a unique ‘easy click’ system. The installer simply fits their mounting frame (plaster in, bezel, or surface mount) and the light modules can then be plugged in and ‘push-clicked’ into place: a tool-free second fix. A further advantage of the system is that lamp types and optics can be swapped at any time. The “easy click” method was demonstrated to visitors to the stand and was very deemed a phenomenal success. The concept is patent pending.
