“With Alphabet of Light we have designed a modular system of straight and bended components of light that enables you to write letters, be a straight line or a curve.” – BIG
Key Design Features
Alphabet of Light utilises innovative patent-pending technology to achieve uniform tubes of illumination. The unique LED mixing chamber, combined with electromechanical joints, ensure that connections are illuminated evenly, guaranteeing continuous lines of light with no dark spots.
Alphabet of Light
The Alphabet of Light alphanumerical collection features illuminated characters, including all of the letters of the alphabet in both lower and uppercase formats as well as numerical values from zero to nine. Designed to offer users the ability to create illuminated signage, letters and numbers can be combined to create dynamic signage for businesses and companies across multiple sectors.
Alphabet of Light Standalone
The Alphabet of Light Standalone collection consists of suspended and surface mounted fixtures in circular, linear, square and rectangular configurations available in a range of standardised sizes and diameters. All fixtures feature a 50mm diameter tube and are available with a surface mounted power box.
Alphabet of Light Standalone fixtures are 3000K and rated IP20, making them suitable for various interior installations across residential, commercial, hospitality and retail applications.
Alphabet of Light System
The Alphabet of Light System utilises curved and linear modules available in a range of lengths and radii to create customised lighting systems to suit any interior space. These modules can be mixed and matched to form custom shapes and configurations. Modules can be suspended or surface mounted depending on the required application.
System X, T and 90º Joints
System modules can be joined together using a selection of T, X and 90º joints. By facilitating constant voltage feeding, energetic distribution in multiple directions and the unique LED mixing chamber, Alphabet of Light System electromechanic joints ensure continuous and seamless shapes of light.
The extensive range of over twenty four system joiners offers the freedom to create a multitude of shapes and forms on both horizontal and vertical plans.
The Alphabet of Light System provides freedom and flexibility in design, allowing the user to explore and create infinite configurations and possibilities.
