VANCOUVER, CANADA, March 24, 2015 – Cooledge Lighting, the leading developer of flat and flexible LED lighting solutions, has created a unique ‘light and material’ experience that offers architects, lighting and interior designers and specifiers to play with the relationship between light and different materials such as textiles, plastics, glass and onyx. The new experience will debut at GlobalShop in Las Vegas this week after a successful debut with leading designers in Chicago earlier this month.

“Working with Billings Jackson Design in Chicago, we’ve developed a set of cardboard boxes to create windows of light with which designers can change the distance between light and materials to create different effects or change the nature of the light itself,” said David Kriebel, vice president of sales and marketing for Cooledge. “Because our lighting products eliminate the need for traditional luminaires and thermal management, we can apply them to non-traditional materials to create thinner, unique and more efficient illumination effects.”

The novel boxes were unveiled at an event for architects and designers in the Chicago area earlier this month. More than 30 participants joined Cooledge and KSA at the Riva on Navy Pier to play with the boxes and reconsider the relationship between light and materials.

Cooledge’s light sheet products are redefining what is required to form a luminaire and freeing architects and lighting designers from bulb and tube form factors. Installations at the New Coach store on Central Park West and the TOPSHOP flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York City are great examples of how these new form factors can be used to create beautifully lit effects. Cooledge’s boxes and products can be played with at GlobalShop in booth 4476, March 24-26.



Cooledge Lighting is a pioneer in scalable lighting products that can be easily designed into a building by architects and lighting designers and simply installed by builders and contractors without specialized knowledge or training. The privately held company is based in Vancouver, Canada with offices and operations in the United States and Germany.

The company’s light sheet and SQUARE products are UL Listed and use extremely efficient white LEDs to provide a smooth and uniform lit effect when installed. Each is thin, just 0.1 inch thick, and flexible, like a sheet of paper, so that it can be bent, draped or shaped around and in architectural elements.
