Montreal-based architectural lighting manufacturer Lumenwerx recently announced the launch of a suite of innovative acoustic luminaires designed to reduce ambient noise for interior spaces.
Developed in conjunction with acoustics experts, the new ACOUSTIX family of luminaires combines exceptional optics and precision sound-absorbing technology to create a new paradigm in acoustic lighting. The lineup’s flagship fixture, the Audia, can increase sound absorption up to 30 percent more than competing products.
The complete ACOUSTIX lineup includes nine state-of-the-art luminaires, each integrated with one of two sound-dampening systems: precision-machined acoustic felt panels, or the company’s own patent-pending EchoCore that uses Helmholtz resonator principles to actively trap sound waves.
According to Michael Simla, CTO of Lumenwerx, “EchoCore represents a real shift forward in discrete sound-dampening technology. A die-cut aluminium external body lets sound waves penetrate the interior of the fixture, where they hit multiple layers of eco-conscious, sound-absorbing material.”
Each fixture in the ACOUSTIX lineup includes fully integrated controls and multiple lighting options. “With ACOUSTIX, we’ve really tried to hit a number of functionalities, design aesthetics and price points”, said Lumenwerx CEO Morris Feldman. “Whether you’re renovating, in new construction, or looking for a horizontal, vertical, round or square acoustic solution, we wanted to offer up an intelligent choice for any design scenario”.
