Internationally renowned lighting designer Leni Schwendinger has designed the Jewel-Light Luminaire to transform outdoor lighting. Using energy saving LED technology, from Lighting Science Group Corporation, the Jewel-Light Luminaire provides an artistic signature to enhance architecture and infrastructure while reducing costs and offering a brilliant alternative to traditionally utilitarian lighting.

“I wanted to develop a beautiful, practical, forward-thinking and sustainable solution for new and retrofit markets that translates into massive cost savings and beautification for cities,” said Schwendinger. “My design firm was able to do this with critical support from Lighting Science (LSG) who developed and manufactured the luminaire.”

The Jewel-Light Luminaire, the first commercially available product designed by Leni Schwendinger, will be launched and demonstrated at a holiday event in New York City’s Bryant Park on December 9th. “New Yorkers and visitors will be able to experience the transformative power of the Jewel-Light in the Bryant Park setting. The lighting demonstration will be operational throughout the New York holiday season, until January 2010,“ said Schwendinger.

Exceptionally versatile and unique, the luminaire is robust enough to be used in rugged environments such as bridge lighting, post-top sidewalk lighting and other architectural exterior applications. The Jewel-Light product line is available in cool white diamond, vivid ruby red, royal amethyst purple, deep sapphire blue and lush emerald green. The Jewel-Light contains 24 LEDs that use only 28 watts of energy and has a rated life of 50,000 hours.

“We are proud to be able to offer this lighting solution to the infrastructure and architecture community,“ said Zach Gibler, CEO, Lighting Science Group Corporation. “It combines the aesthetic with the functional and delivers a replacement for antiquated and utilitarian fixtures and opens up a world of new design opportunities. The Jewel-Light is a sustainable solution that provides exceptional energy savings and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.”
