ART & SCIENCE

Lumiere exemplifies the art and science of architectural landscape lighting.  We provide innovative, precision lighting instruments that illuminate and enliven the nighttime environment.  Our products are designed and engineered to be extremely small, adjustable, adaptable, and rugged.  This allows you to create distinctive environments of lasting beauty without drawing undue attention to the light source.  Our goal is to provide a brilliant pallet of lighting solutions that help fulfill your artistic vision.

FROM CONCEPT TO CREATION

Design.  The best product ideas come from the professionals that use them.  As a result, our fixtures have been developed and refined in collaboration with the lighting design community.  This philosophy, coupled with an uncompromising commitment to innovation, quality and value, has produced an impressive roster of patents and industry awards for outstanding fixture design.

Premium Materials We strive to use only the finest materials available.  Time honored architectural materials such as brass, bronze, copper, and stainless steel, each selected specifically for their beauty and natural corrosion resistance.  Fixtures constructed from these materials also exude a warmth and splendor unlike painted finish.  Brass, bronze, and copper will - over time - develop a natural, protective patina that will further enhance the beauty of the finish while extending the life of the fixture indefinitely.  For applications where fixtures also serve as physical design elements these materials may be selected to match or compliment other architectural finishes, both indoors and out.

Aluminum.  While brass, bronze, copper, and stainless steel provide the highest level of corrosion resistance, they are not practical or cost efficient for all types of products or projects.  A viable, cost effective alternative is aluminum.  It can be formed by any one of several processes, which will accommodate most fixture designs.  For these reasons, aluminum continues to be the material of choice for landscape lighting fixture design.  But not all aluminum alloys are equal.  Lumiere strives to use solid 6061-T6 aluminum billet or extrusion wherever possible.

Machined vs Cast.  6061-T6 aluminum is so pure that it cannot be cast.  It must be machined on CNC equipment (Computer Numeric Control).  While this material and process is more expensive than producing aluminum castings, machined 6061-T6 aluminum components deliver a level of corrosion resistance and specification tolerances not available in a cast product.  As a result, precision machined 6061-T6 aluminum provides corrosion resistance approaching that of brass, bronze, copper, and stainless steel at a cost closer to that of cast aluminum.
