Let’s be honest. Grid ceilings are functional, but not always pretty. It’s true that troffers used in grid ceilings do have their benefits such as energy savings and reduced maintenance costs. But not all troffers have pleasing aesthetics. And when designing any space, all elements – from lighting to wall colors – have an impact on the look and feel of a space.
Many commercial offices or healthcare facilities use grid ceilings, but few settings have a sophisticated grid ceiling. Here’s how Chisel from Mark Architectural Lighting™ brings Class-A polish and sophistication to your next grid ceiling project:
Design with directional gradients
Forget the flat illumination from your standard troffer. Four directional gradients within Chisel allow lighting designers to illuminate different sides, without reducing lumen output or quality. Directional gradients create dimension in the ceiling, and coupled with three pattern options – minimalist, weave and pyramid – Chisel helps lighting designers explore the interplay of highlight and shadow to add character to their design.
Create clusters – or stick to tradition
Not all grid ceilings are a standard 2 ft. x 2 ft. format. Mix of the lighting in a space with clusters of Chisel in various sizes: 1 ft. x 2 ft., 2 ft. x 2 ft., 2 ft. x 4 ft., 1 ft. x 4 ft. and 6 in. by 4 ft. Each of these sizes are available in various patterns and directional gradients.
Turn up Tunable White (and CCT Contrast)
Tunable White fosters a sense of the passage of time, enabling occupants to adjust color temperature to align with different activities. The Tunable White CCT Contrast option employs 2700 to 6500K color temperatures in opposite directional gradients. The result? A splash of color and contrast.
From directional gradients to CCT Contrast, multiple elements of Chisel help lighting designers bump up the sophistication in their grid ceiling projects.
