Acuity Brands Launches NOMI Family of Products
ATLANTA – April 15, 2015 – Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI), one of the world's leading providers of LED and OLED lighting solutions for both indoor and outdoor applications, continues to broaden creative design options for its organic light emitting diode (OLED) products with the release of NOMI™ OLED from Winona® Lighting.
NOMI OLED enables lighting designers to make a dramatic visual impact by adding intimacy and warmth to both grand and intimate spaces. By blending unique form, elegant design and exceptional beauty with the energy efficiency of OLED, NOMI is a modern family of wall sconces that can add drama to corporate interiors, lobbies, restaurants, auditoriums, hospitality, healthcare and high-end residential applications.
“With NOMI, we offer a fresh approach to traditional sconce lighting applications. Utilizing the glow of OLED in a sleek design reminiscent of a torch, we have created a modern interpretation of a candle flame. The effect is mesmerizing. Each individual sconce is extremely low in wattage, making the design pragmatic as well.” said Jeannine Fisher Wang, Director of Business Development and Marketing, OLED Business Group, for Acuity Brands. “Along with our other OLED product families, NOMI provides a distinctive and affordable look for forward-thinking designers.”
The NOMI line is the most recent addition to the Winona OLED product portfolio. It comes in two forms – Straight and Curve. The NOMI Straight design features rigid rectangular OLED panels, while the NOMI Curve form is the first commercial product of its kind to use bendable rectangular OLED panels.
The NOMI family offers multiple lighting distributions for creating a variety of visual effects; three correlated color temperature (CCT) options of 3000K, 3500K and 4000K; and an L70 rated lifetime of up to 40,000 hours. Several custom finishes are available, as are custom signage options such as raised numbers/lettering with Braille to meet certain Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) signage requirements.
