Filed under // AD's

Here is a sneak peek of the new AYRE full page AD in the April issue of Metropolis Magazine.

The Euro 3 sconce boasts a beautiful cased opal glass. In person this glass diffuser is second to none!  The even light distribution along with the flowing transition to the metal components put this fixture in a class of its own.

Here is a sneak peek of the new AYRE full page AD in the Feburary issue of Metropolis magazine.

ON/OFF Wall Paint

01 / 20 / 2011

Some innovative thinking.

French design firm Quarks has created a tactile “switch,” a fusion of paint and embedded electronic mechanisms that enable a wall to act as an electronic switch.

APCI explains: The principle here is composed of paint and an electronic mechanism. Once the ON/OFF paint has been applied to the wall, a simple touch detects the contact desired by the user to control an electrical appliance. This “switch” is no longer positioned at an exact location only a few square centimetres in size but on the entire surface of the wall... ON/OFF may be combined with a lamp, an alarm, roller blinds or any electrically-controlled appliances. You can add another function to the unit such as a dimmer, timer or plug.

Enhancing the way we interact with our living space in a clean and subtle way. I want some!

Incandescent efficiency standards in California

12 / 30 / 2010
Filed under // News

"Beginning January 1, 2011 light bulb manufacturers will be required to meet new efficiency standards in California to save consumers money and energy. The standard, passed by Congress and signed by President George W. Bush, becomes effective nationwide January 1, 2012. California has enacted the federal standards one year earlier to avoid the sale of 10.5 million inefficient 100-watt bulbs in 2011 which would cost consumers $35.6 million in unnecessarily higher electricity bills (Source: PG&E Case Study). By reducing energy consumption the standard will reduce air pollution from the burning of fossil fuels in power plants while producing the same quality of light as traditional incandescent bulbs." -http://www.energy.ca.gov/
