Entry Description

Hero is the first luminaire that can point light in any direction without moving the fixture itself. Instead of a conventional single bulb, Hero has a row of 10 fixed LED’s that shine up into a corresponding row of ten tiny reflectors that can move. A joystick moves the complete row of reflectors in an X-Y axis. The angle of light changes dramatically as the row of reflectors move relative to the fixed row of LEDs.

Hero is a clean replacement for messy track lighting. Hero’s fixture never needs to move to aim light — multiple units can be perfectly aligned for a clean contemporary look.
