Redefining how we experience light with the power of 3D-printed lighting and innovative controls

21 Sep 2023
DP Festival

Just as a painter's skills and techniques allow us to see the world in different ways through their art, the advancements in 3D-printed lighting and full-spectrum lighting controls offer new possibilities for designers to create stimulating environments that elevate the human experience through light. With these advancements, the boundaries of lighting design are endless, enabling us to see and experience our environment in ways we never thought possible. 

Imagine a hotel lobby that transports you back in time, a commercial office space that emulates the comforts of home, or a museum exhibit that dynamically adjusts its lighting to enhance the visitor's experience. Imagine fully custom pendant lights in the shape of an iconic chocolate truffle, or a wave of fixtures made from recycled fishing nets for an aquarium’s entryway. With the power of 3D-printed lighting by Signify and Lutron’s Athena controls, these dreams can become a reality. The possibilities are endless, and the right partners are at your fingertips. 

The marriage of 3D-printing and lighting has unlocked a world of creativity and customization. Designers can now experiment with unique textures and shapes that were once out of reach. Backed by the expertise and efficiency of Signify, these solutions are sustainably fabricated in Littlestown, PA - allowing your designs to come to life quickly with various teams supporting your vision. 

But it's not just the physical design of a fixture that has evolved. Lutron's Athena controls and Ketra lighting provide the perfect complement to 3D-printed lighting, enabling precise control and customization of lighting scenes, perfect white light, and full-spectrum color. Designers can easily modify color, intensity, and mood, resulting in gorgeous lighting that showcase designs, finishes, and architectural elements exactly as intended. Headquartered in Coopersburg, PA, Lutron is another local partner with abundant resources at your disposal.  

With the right partners, bringing these possibilities to life can be seamless. Synergy, Signify, and Lutron, leaders in their respective fields, offer the expertise and support needed to turn design concepts into reality. Their collaboration allows for seamless integration of customized lighting solutions into large-scale projects, ensuring that the vision of designers is fully realized. 

In this ever-evolving world of lighting design, where technology and creativity intersect, the possibilities are limitless. How will you harness the power of 3D-printed lighting and innovative controls to redefine the way we experience light? What new designs will you create? What emotions will you evoke? The future of lighting design is in your hands. Step into the realm of endless possibilities, “create your own light” with us, and let your imagination shine.
