Princeton University - Lewis Library, Princeton, NJ
Architect: Gehry Partners, Los Angeles, CA
Lighting Designer: Brett Malak of Cosentini, New York, NY
The Princeton Library project featured a custom cylindrical "sword" pendant. The matte white acrylic diffuser is 2" diameter and 24" or 36" long. These Pendants utilize T5 lamp technology providing excellent color rendering (14W or 21W). The ballast is mounted within the painted aluminum tubular housing located directly above the lamp. Optional MR16 up lights are available. This design allows for easy, one person re-lamping by simply removing the bottom finial and sliding down the acrylic diffuser. The aircraft cable suspension allows for variable mounting heights.
