About Sonneman Lighting - Modern Vanity Lighting, Wall Lighting & Ceiling Lights
At the forefront of modern design has always stood Robert Sonneman. Since the 60s and 70s, his designs have revolutionized the lighting industry. Sleek and functional define the style that has become classics of the modern era. The Sonneman lighting collection includes over a thousand different designs, from Warm Contemporary to Ornamental and Modernist. The Sonneman name is featured all over the world in more than two thousand showrooms and countless online retailers. Ever evolving, his styles continue to keep up with the ever changing design landscape. LED Lighting is becoming one of the most widely used forms of illumination. The tiny nature of the LED bulb has sent designers into a world they never thought possible. Take the Starflex for example. This LED chandelier features five perfectly balanced arms stretched out from a small center ring, creating the star like pattern. The Starflex transforms its posture with the light touch of a finger, focusing light down on to a table for example, or creating a soft glow of light for the entire room when raised up. Truly a brilliant piece of design.
The Corona is gorgeous ring of light, seamlessly floating in mid air. The internally focused LED illumination creates a warm ringed glow that provides both the presence and absence of volume. Plenty of light comes from this minimalistic pendant. With 19 watts of LED light equaling 1350 Lumens, the equivalent to 105 watts of incandescent light, your room will certainly not be dim. The color temperature is a warm 3000K and it's also dimmable using an electronic low voltage dimmer or standard TRIAC incandescent dimmer. Available in two colors, Bright Satin Aluminum and Black.
The Quattro series of LED lighting epitomizes what this company is all about. Quattro is a revolutionary series of flat panel LED illumination products. The LED flat panel eliminates the hot spots and shadows created by standard LED lamps. The uniform light panel is created by projecting Nichia LED illumination across a large surface of advanced optical films that focus the light and direct it toward its objective. This reduces the sidelight, therefore the glare. When measuring light output on a surface you use the term LUX. LUX is the measurement of light on a surface, or the apparent brightness of something you see. With 25% more LUX from 25% less power, Quattro lamps are far and away a better source of light.
The lighting industry is full of imitations and copy cats. Constantly knocking off products and design from each other. The cool new design that you find from one manufacturer will be in five different collections in the next few months. Sonneman has never been about that. Their designs and innovation have always been unique to them and no one else. Never settling with trying to copy the new design or trend, but trying to be the one with the new design and setting the trend. With generations of children from the 80s and 90s getting older, design trends have changed dramatically. The last 20 years have seen a rise of the baby boom generation and their taste included a lot of bronze with amber glass, Satin Nickel with alabaster, traditional in style, conservative, but definitely a step up from the glass and brass era before them. Today's generation is all about simple contemporary. An urban city feel with a hint of sophistication. The rise of technology has definitely had an impact on how lighting is designed. If you look around, everything you use from your cell phone to your computer, appliances in your home, are designed in a cool modern look. We're surrounded by it, at home, at work, in your new car. This is what the mass' are looking for and Sonneman Lighting Fixtures has captured it perfectly.
