Olessence™ Luminaires from Acuity Brands Harmonize Technology and Form to Transform Modern Illumination

LED and OLED intersect to bring the best of form and function with a thin, contemporary design and superior lighting quality

ATLANTA – April 26, 2016 -- Acuity Brands, Inc.​​ (NYSE: AYI) today announced Olessence™ luminaires by Peerless®, a new high-performance architectural linear suspended lighting solution for commercial and professional office spaces. Olessence luminaires balance OLED and LED lighting technologies to maximize beauty and performance in lighting while optimizing energy savings and cost.

Olessence luminaires feature Duet SSL™ Technology, the award-winning design concept from Acuity Brands that optimizes the performance of OLED and LED light sources in a single luminaire. The handsome, sleek and contemporary luminaire features a 7.25 x 0.5 inch profile. OLEDs provide soft and calm diffused lighting for comfortable perceived brightness. LEDs add high-lumen performance and precise optical control of the uplight distribution serving as the primary source of ambient illumination.

“In balancing OLED and LED in a single luminaire, we are developing transformational and cost-competitive lighting solutions that neither technology could singularly create,” said Peter Ngai, Vice President OLED Lighting, Acuity Brands Lighting. “Olessence reflects our passion for lighting innovations like Duet SSL Technology that make functional lighting more personal, engaging, and sensitive to architectural design considerations.”

Olessence luminaire features include:

  • Direct-view OLED panels for downlight
  • High-performance batwing distribution using proprietary injection molded optics for LED uplight
  • Optional dual-circuit switching for independent dimming of direct and indirect light outputs
  • Flicker-free dimming-to-dark, powered by a remote eldoLED® driver
  • Three LED lumen packages and three available CCT options (3000K, 3500K and 4000K) in 80+ and 90+ CRI options 
  • Multiple control options
  • 4‘, 6‘ and 8‘ sections, available in white, black or painted aluminum

In addition Olessence supports an integrated nLight® module for system networking, as well as integrated sensors for daylight dimming and/or occupancy detection.

Acuity Brands will be demonstrating Olessence (Booths #3217 and #3437) during LIGHTFAIR® International, April 26-28, at the San Diego Convention Center. Please visit Olessence luminaires​ for more information, or wwwacuitybrands.com to see our other LED and OLED luminaires.
