In the heart of Paris Linea Light Group lights up the Walter Steiger boutique

Linea Light collezione I-led albatros

It is outstanding having your own high-end shoes immortalized by the objective of Helmut Newton in a six-pages feature story published in Vogue magazine. That is what has happened to Walter Steiger, Genevan fashion designer and collaborator of some of the most prestigious fashion brands. Discovered in London by Mary Quant, his shoes were chosen by Michelangelo Antonioni for the cult film “Blow Up”.

His first store was opened in 1974 in the Parisian rue de Tournon, and currently he boasts a lot of boutiques worldwide. One of his traits is the particular attention to the look of his products, as shown by the new lighting system of the  showroom on Avenue Matignon in Paris, one of the most beautiful and important streets of the city, known for its art galleries, stylish cafes and luxury boutiques.

A work that had to meet clear needs of the customer: a product with LED technology, with excellent performance, that can be installed as a continuous line, characterized by a high visual comfort which creates an elegant and soft atmosphere. A light system without any visual impact, which leaves the starring role to the product on display, highlighting the preciousness of materials, details and design.

Albatros, the perfect solution

Many requirements fully answered by Albatros, one of the i-Lèd solutions, characterized by the innovative Optilight Technology ™ , which optimises the luminous flux produced guaranteeing top visual comfort. A suspension light with a central casing in white or grey coated extruded aluminium and pair of transparent polymethylmethacrylate diffusers on the sides of the fixture. It is evenly illuminated by a series of topLED circuits positioned in parallel on the central structure.

The uniformity and high luminous performance of the diffuser are guaranteed by a special laser engraved surface that evenly distributes the light emitted by the LEDs when the light is turned on, and is perfectly transparent when the light is turned off. A technologically advanced solution and aesthetically up to the luxury product.

The fact that light is one of the cornerstones of architectural design is undisputed, since it has shown itself to be a high value-added compositional and structural element. It is a factor characterized by extreme material lightness that is a co-protagonist along with the other components of the project, given its significant practical-functional and aesthetic-expressive values. Within this context there is Linea Light Group, based in Castelminio di Resana (TV), a leading company at an international level for lighting products, systems and solutions that are entirely manufactured in Italy, starting from their design up to their production.

Thanks to a know-how acquired over 15 years of experience in the LED sector, the company is now able to offer products in which each component enhances the performance of the other: LED, heat sink, electronics and optics all combine to create an efficient whole while ensuring quality and excellent performance within the scope of complex projects. This corporate specialization has been synonymous with constant development, both in Italy and abroad, thanks to ongoing investments in R&D activities focusing on advanced technological solutions that are both environmentally friendly and with strong design . Careful market analysis as well as fruitful collaboration with architects, designers and lighting designers contribute to the development of cutting-edge solutions for various applications.
