Sonneman Launches New Scalable, Modular Lighting System

Contemporary lighting brand Sonneman—A Way of Light has developed a new architectural surface-mounted collection that allows users to customize installations and rotate luminaires.

Purolinear 360 is a system of linear tubes set within the geometry of surface-mounted cylinder brackets that rotate individually to direct the LED illumination in 360 degrees along their axis. With the ability to emit both direct and indirect LED illumination, the system allows users to customize their environment, the company says.

“As a day turns to night, light dims, changes color and turns to darkness. Interior lighting late at night disturbs the natural nocturnal rhythm through both brightness and color, affecting our circadian rhythm,” said Robert Sonneman, founder and chief creative officer, Sonneman—A Way of Light. “Purolinear 360 features rotationally directed LED illumination that can be positioned to suit user preferences. Each

light can be rotated independently, providing balanced illumination within a space. The system casts direct light only where it is needed and indirect illumination elsewhere."

Purolinear 360 is a modular system composed of luminaires in three lengths—24 inches, 36 inches, and 48 inches. It also offers connectors in two sizes and five styles. Any of the connectors can be used as a power feed, with up to 8 feet of luminaire length in any direction from the power feed. Luminaires can also be electrically isolated from a connector, allowing multiple circuits to be connected together to form a configuration of unlimited scale.

The system has the ability to transition between wall and ceiling mounting using corner connectors. Arranged in a linear pattern or along a single path, the possibilities for compositions are endless and unlimited in scalability, the company says.

“Set on a wall, in line behind a bed, the rotatable luminaires provide the variability of direct or indirect illumination,” the brands says. “Arranged along a large wall in an extensive intersecting pattern, the composition forms a dramatic sculptural light-scape. In a bath, the rotatable light tubes of Purolinear 360 can be arranged to surround a mirror on all four sides. This system creates dramatically variable illumination across large planes or narrow lengths of surfaces. Its rotatable light can run along a narrow hallway or around the perimeter of a large ceiling, providing the perfect geometry of light as an architectural element of a modern space.

Each LED luminaire offers 7 watts, 690 lumens, and have a CRI of 90. The products come in Polished Chrome, Satin White, Satin Nickel, and Satin Black.
