Here are five recent product releases to consider for your next architectural lighting projects.

Slotlight Infinity II, Zumtobel

Designed in alignment with Zumtobel’s Circular Design Rules and comprising 29% recycled materials, this linear luminaire, or light line, can be installed in continuous lines, around corners, and in X or T configurations. Backward-compatible with its predecessor, the Slotlight Infinity I, the Infinity II can be surface-mounted, recessed, or installed as a pendant in indoor and sheltered-outdoor settings. It offers five distinct optics, including a drop diffuser that minimizes repeated refraction and results in up to 15% greater light efficiency and reduced glare perception. This latest generation has a luminous efficacy of up to 150 lm/W. Available with an IP54 protection rating and emergency lighting. z.lighting

PowerLine 200 Gen 2, Alloy LED

This direct-connect, driverless 120V tape light is offered in ETL-listed custom lengths of 12" increments for continuous runs up to 164 feet. The tape light’s tight diode pitch reduces hot spots and provides up to 272 lm/ft based on the specified CCT, offered between 2700K and 4200K. With a CRI exceeding 94.5 and high R9 and R13, this IP65 product can be used indoors and outdoors and in wet and dry locations. It is dimmable and compatible with standard household AC dimmer switches. alloyled.com

Miles collection, Yabu Pushelberg for Lasvit

Inspired by the parallels between music-making and glassblowing, the Miles collection combines cylindrical outer casings with internal fluted shapes reminiscent of horn instruments. The number of segments ganged together by the New York– and Toronto-based design and product studio Yabu Pushelberg creates different lengths—small, medium, and large—of each luminaire type, while its diameter remains constant: 193mm for the pendant, 204mm for the table lamp, and 250mm for the floor lamp. The Miles collection utilizes graphite-colored glass with a graphite-gray frame. lasvit.com

MX-4, Markilux

Released by the German engineer and manufacturer of outdoor shading solutions, this awning features a conical-shaped cassette and integrated LED lighting elements, along with optional, complementary wall-mounted lights that can be controlled together for a cohesive visual impact. MX-4’s cover cassette can hide a LED linear light coupled with swiveling and rotating spotlights. Available in warm white and dynamic RGB, which can be programmed via the Philips Hue app or various automation control systems, including the Somfy TaHoma Switch, Bond Bridge, and Zigbee. The styling panel and cassette come in seven standard colors, with custom colors possible for the cassette, and sizing that is tailored per order. markilux.com

Canvas Digital Pixel RGBW Light Sheet, Prizm Lighting by American Lighting

With each digitally addressable 3"-square grid of RGB + 3000K white LED pixels via SPI, this 12"-by-24" light sheet can be cut or combined to create custom lighting applications showcasing millions of unique colors. Ideal for backlighting semi-translucent materials, each Light Sheet can deliver up to 1,050 lm using 56W at 24VDC. Integrated spacers help hold transparent materials ½" off the light sheet for leveled and diffused lighting effect. Field-cuttable to 3" square, each sheet has a 3M peel-and-stick backing that is rated to hold 220 lb. It maintains its UL rating even when cut and can operate in 4° to 113° F temperatures. prizmlighting.com
