Next Generation Luminaires Design Competition

Outstanding – Linear Pendant

"Nera" by Focal Point


The design of Nera is inspired by the architectural term 'visual void', a basic element used in the architectural design process. Nera's unique aesthetic is reflected in its hollow center which creates a visually lightweight appearance. Nera is available in both a suspended linear profile and a square pendant.

The attractive appearance, color quality and dimming performance of the Nera pendant luminaire from Focal Point were praised by the judges.
