Lumetta’s Lighting Heals Within the Healthcare CommunityAugust 2021
Effective lighting in the healthcare environment can significantly enhance the patient experience and promote health and healing. Lumetta’s carefully designed lighting upgrades to healthcare and hospital facilities, whether for new construction or retrofitting of existing facilities, create better work environments for the staff–increasing efficiency and satisfaction- and allowing them to provide a higher level of care.
Lumetta’s lighting solutions are sleek and ethereal, while the shades are made from our proprietary washable and antimicrobial Lumenate® and TransLumenate®–an absolute necessity in any healthcare environment.

Hamilton College Health and Wellness Center
With a focus on health and wellness services, Hamilton College selected Chiang | O’Brien Architects to design a functional space that addressed the growing demand for more integrated physical and mental health services from a single facility.
The vision for the interior was to provide welcoming and inviting spaces with clean and minimal furnishings, as well as lighting with accents of color to give a warm, “living room” atmosphere. Lumetta’s Shadow Series and Shallow Drums were chosen to highlight the environment.
Abilene Memorial Hospital
Lawrence Group Architects of St. Luis contracted Lumetta to execute luminaires for Abilene Memorial Hospital. They ultimately chose the oversized Custom Box Pendants with powder coated bronze patterned frames and a complementary antimicrobial MT Natural lighting diffuser.
With the compilation of play between metal and light and the warm bronze finish, the deco design of the frame, and their impressive scale, the fixtures looked stunning and delivered the ideal amount of ambient lighting for the environment.
Children’s Health Pediatric ICU
The design team of Perkins + Will Dallas, wanted to create a supportive environment for patients, families and staff of Children’s Health Pediatric ICU by implementing an “Africa: Savanna and Jungle” theme, that would tie in with the hospital’s signature style of refined whimsy.
The savanna and jungle are expressed on the walls with bold, earth-toned illustration and are complemented by Lumetta’s Echo ceiling luminaires which function as illuminated “clouds”.
The Echo’s various patterns and sizes helped the luminaire clouds refract light on the surrounding sky, especially at night when half of the corridor lights dim.
Prairie Lakes HealthCare System
Prairie Lakes Healthcare in Watertown, SD wanted to update and modernize their reception, lunch, and conversation areas and to better utilize their existing space. Lighting was given a top priority, not only for the sake of practicality, but also for aesthetic effects.
The ambient lighting would serve as both a welcoming and comforting atmosphere for patients and visitors alike. The soft illumination would also offer a sense of stability and permanency to the facilities. Lumetta was chosen to design and fabricate the Palindrome, Echo, and L2 Pendants for the project.
