Cooledge Brings Color Tuning from 2700K to 5700K to Luminous Surfaces

Cooledge announced today that it will introduce color tunable TILE products at the Light + Building exhibition this month in Frankfurt Germany. Color temperature control allows architects and designers to make light feel more natural and to create drama in retail, and hospitality environments. Interior 'skylight' lighting can change through the day, replicating the behavior of sunlight. Walls and ceilings too can be tuned to create an emotional response in hospitality, retail and entertainment environments.

"The ability to reproduce natural lighting conditions is of great importance to architects and lighting designers," said Philippe Schick Vice President of Product Management at Cooledge."As we see more 'interior skylights' being designed into retail and hospitality environments, it's clear there's a growing need for luminous surfaces to mimic the quality of light we get from the sun. The ability to control color as well as light output has become essential."

Cooledge has expanded its portfolio into four ranges, Ceiling, Wall, Display and Perimeter more closely representing where its TILE and LINE products are incorporated. "Illumination needs and installation requirements vary by environment and desired effect," said Schick. "Our new ranges recognize those differences and offer more tailored solutions to simplify the selection and specification process.

Case study examples and videos of the flexible and modular nature of Cooledge's portfolio can be seen at  

Cooledge will be showing its full range at Light + Building in Hall 4.0, stand C61. Stand tours and more information are available at
