Selux offers an extensive range of architectural light fixtures, including solar-powered and DarkSky-certified luminaires designed to help lighting professionals and architects create interior and exterior spaces in which to live and work. As former Product Manager James Brigagliano explained, “Reducing light pollution through proper optical/luminaire design can be touted as an important non-energy benefit and that’s great. If you look closer, however, there is a very large energy benefit, since any light not working to illuminate the task is wasted energy. After 15+ years of supporting the [DarkSky] initiative, we are glad to see continued interest in this effort by designers, municipalities, and other manufacturers.”
