LAYERED LIGHT Aion LED’s low-profile luminaires illuminate the shallow coves of architect Elkus Manfredi’s layered ceiling at Longwood Medical Center in Boston, USA.
Architect Elkus Manfredi’s vision of a layered and sinuous ceiling at Longwood Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts USA was brought to light by Jeffrey Sladen and Reiko Komiyama of Boston-based Sladen Feinstein Integrated Lighting. Extremely shallow coves called for a low profile product with the flexibility to follow the curvilinear lines and enough intensity to provide a base layer of ambient light, so Aion LED’s 4924-WR Series was selected. The resulting illumination has flawless colour consistency and a soft organic flow. Longwood Center’s requirements for absolute consistency and a custom fit were in the wheel house of San Francisco-based manufacturer Aion LED. Aion LED American-made semi-custom systems feature the ideal standard in colour consistency and performance with industryleading 2 Step MacAdam ellipse binning, 95+ CRI and high Red 9. www.aionled.com
