Peerless Parallels Fixtures: Winner of Best New Product, Light Fair International, 2006

Parallels fixtures are a pure expression of light. No cables, no wiring, no housings, no integral ballasts. Devoid of such conventional trappings, Peerless’s latest innovation offers a striking departure from the office lighting mainstream. T5 high-output lamps, powered via elegant extruded strut and yoke, are encased in tandem luminous bodies providing a slim, sophisticated form harmonious with contemporary high-end interiors. The light quality is extraordinary, raising indirect/direct lighting to an ultimate level of refinement. The parallel spacing of lamps lowers brightness ratios, providing a calmer environment than row-mounted systems. ExclusiveGrateOptic™ technology casts a pleasing light-and-dark linear pattern down the length of the diffuser while effectively softening the source for optimal comfort. Advanced indirect optics bathe the space with soft, uniform, virtually glare-free illumination.
