Linnea – A Fabulous Linear Lighting Solution from LEDiL - the People that Make Light Right

Linnea – A Fabulous Linear Lighting Solution from LEDiL - the People that Make Light Right Anyone who has spent countless hours in artificially lit indoor environments knows how tiring on the eyes it can eventually become. Many of you reading this will know exactly what we’re talking about. Yes, fluorescent lighting. But hey, that’s so 1980s and 90s, isn’t it? Well, not really. It seems there are many indoor spaces that are still lit with these often flickering, unevenly lit outdated tubes of the past. The era of oil and candlelight have long gone but those pesky fluorescent light tubes remain and some might even think they are still relevant. Well, we’re here to tell you they’re not. Thanks to LEDs and some innovative optic design by our in-house team we have something better – much better.  Read more »
