Recognized – Linear Pendant Luminaires

"Vellum" by Acuity Brands® - Peerless ®


The Vellum linear suspended LED luminaire is designed with a sleek, ultra low-profile form factor that encases an ultra-thin edge-lit lens. Various light distributions and color temperatures can be specified and optional integrated nLight® controls are available.

Judging comments

The judges praised the appearance, light distribution and excellent dimming of the Vellum luminaire. "Nice dimming", "excellent distribution and color rendering", and "really impressive" were all included in the individual judging comments. The sensitivity of the lens to scratching was identified as a concern, however.
