Next Generation Luminaires Design Competition

Recognized – Wall Wash

"Q-Wall" by QuarkStar in collaboration with Everlight


The Q-Wall is a completely new type of recessed linear luminaire that efficiently provides asymmetric glare free illumination from a very compact recessed housing above the ceiling plane providing excellent uniformity on vertical surfaces. The Q-Glaze wall-grazing luminaire, also reviewed by the judges, is part of this family.

Judging comments

The judges praised the appearance, light distribution and color of the Q-Wall and Q-Graze wall wash and wall graze luminaires by QuarkStar. "Excellent optics and color under full intensity", "uniform light distribution", and "sleek look in ceiling" were some of the specific comments.
