The Lighting Science Glimpse is an Awesome Downlight Retrofit Option

Today I got to show a client this bad boy. 



It’s the Glimpse from Lighting Science Group. The Glimpse is a super simple retrofit kit for recessed downlights with 4” and 6” apertures. Three things to like about it:

1. It consumes 11 watts and replaces 65 watts in terms of light output.  

2. The LEDs are invisible with a very simple, beautiful indirect LED design.  

3. It’s competitively priced.  

Bonus - it’s dimmable with most standard dimmers. 

I love these simple retrofit solutions that not only save energy but make downlights look better.

The Gateway of India in Mumbai has been transformed by a high-tech LED lighting system capable of displaying 16 million colours. Created by Philips, the system will be used to create light displays for the 5.1 million foreign tourists who visit each year, as well as Mumbai’s 12 million residents. 

Wow. You know it’s not always a great match to up-light every piece of architecture. But this looks amazing.

These bad boys are 64 watts a piece plus the ballast factor. I’ll be pitching a NYC hotel to swap these out for LEDs that will use 1/2 the energy and require practically zero maintenance. #lighting #led #sustainability.
