From education to retail, these myriad of project installations show our luminaires within the context of space.
Aurora Health Center 84 South built a new 150,000 square foot flagship ambulatory surgery and health center in Greenfield, Wisconsin. They wanted to consolidate outpatient facilities with improved access and convenience in conjunction with clear and intuitive wayfinding for their patients. The new center augments the company’s delivery of high-quality, cost-effective care to the community and the thoughtful interior design inspires healing and a return to wellness.
Lumetta was specified for the lighting design, and our 42” surface mount drum with LED lamping was chosen for this project for its high-quality welded steel framework and washable Lumenate® diffuser. This lighting solution, located in the retail-inspired lobby, is the perfect solution for a healthcare facility as it can be utilized in damp locations, is washable and can be cleaned with any commercial cleaner to remove dirt, grease, dust and bacteria. The luminaire is certified anti-microbial per ATSM E2180 Standards.
The College of Southern Nevada recently underwent renovations to provide updated amenities for students, including new Student Unions. Students were eager to have a place within the school to ‘meet, eat, study and enjoy. TSK Architects specified L2 42” Taper pendants in MT Grey and Custom Print in partnership with Nevada Sales Agency.
All three campuses of the College of Southern Nevada recently underwent major renovations to provide updated amenities for students. Most significant among the construction project was the addition of new Student Unions at each campus. Students were eager to have a place within the school to ‘meet, eat, study and enjoy’. Lumetta’s L2 42” Taper pendants in MT Grey and Custom Print were specified by TSK Architects in partnership with Nevada Sales Agency.
When Sussex Bank and Community Bank of Bergen County merged to form SB One Bank in 2018, a major rebranding strategy was implemented, a key element of which was creating a new look for its banking centers.
Serving as a prototype design for future renovations, the first branch to open after the merger is located at a luxury condominium complex in Weehawken, New Jersey. A community celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony took place, opening the doors of SB One Weehawken to reveal a modern interior in stark contrast to standard banking design.
Traditionally, customers and bankers are often separated by walls, windows or counters, the new design concept evokes a sense of intimacy and privacy, particularly for customers dealing with higher level needs. The space also features a polished color palette and luxurious accents.
DMR Architects was slated as the designer for this project and chose Lumetta’s Drum L2 34” Pendants in MT White as the luminaires that would best support the bank’s vision of an Integrated Banking Experience.
“The design intent was to create spatially secluded areas where customers could feel comfortable and private. The Lumetta Pendant’s bold shape, size and depth assisted in defining these areas.” –Arlenis Cepeda, Project Architect
Recent research suggests that customers are beginning to prefer the in-person experience over the virtual and are returning to their local banks. With design like this, who can blame them?

When HKIT Architects designed the interior for Rotary Terrace Senior Housing in South San Francisco, they sought a balance between the practical and the aesthetic. Senior Interior Designer Sonja Marck found these attributes in Lumetta’s drums and taper pendants which were selected and appointed throughout the lobby and social areas.
For this project, the fixtures were used to provide accent to the public spaces where residents gather. “We like Lumetta and often use them on our projects. Their lines offer a lot of variety and color options,” Sonja shares.
Luminaires featured on this project are P53414 34” OD x 14″ H drum pendants using D60 MT Natural (Lumenate® Fiber collection) and taper pendants 32” OD x 25” H each, wrapped in D12 Grain (Lumenate® Earth collection), both with etched white bottom lens. Not shown but also used are 34” OD and 23” OD surface mounts featuring D12 Grain (Lumenate® Earth collection) with etched white bottom lens.
Sonja especially favors the taper pendants installed in the Community room as they complement the two-story space and reflects its warmth with the wood tone finish chosen on the shade.
The beautiful new development, recently opened, provides 81 homes for seniors, a project between Beacon Development Group and the Rotary Club of South San Francisco.

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 college proceeded with a new, stand-alone facility located in central campus, hosting various offices and functional rooms that serve the purpose. Chiang | O’Brien’s Megan Walker, Associate, and Spencer Haynsworth Woodcock, Marketing Director, illuminates on the role lighting fixtures played on realizing this vision:
Lighting was a very important component. The vision for the interior was to provide welcoming and inviting spaces with clean and minimal furnishings, plus lighting with accents of color to give a warm, “living room” atmosphere.
Lumetta’s Shadow Series was chosen for the two main open stairs and counselor offices, while shallow drums made it to the group rooms.
At the main open stairs that connect the two levels, a cluster of three columnar fixtures– 27” Shadow Cylinder pendants P2091 with D922 Trans Grid TransLumenate® (outside) and D50 Chartreuse Metallic Lumenate® (inside)– were used to help emphasize the volume of the space. These were mounted at different heights to provide a sculptural and ethereal feel.
The group rooms feature shallow drum pendants coming in diameters of 34” OD and a custom 24” OD, relative to the size of each room. P53408 is wrapped in D148 Mist Weave Lumenate®, white acrylic top and bottom lenses and the custom version has D183 Whitewash Earth Lumenate® with bottom etched white acrylic lens.

For Mission Trail Baptist Hospital in San Antonio, TX, ESa (Earl Swensson Associates) drew inspiration from both the colonial missions of old and the San Antonio River. A neutral color palette created a calming, timeless design aesthetic, with the artwork providing color.
Designing for LEED Gold certification, the lighting intent was key. Natural light permeates the interiors of this 110-bed acute care hospital in the public areas, patient rooms, operating rooms, PACU, and ends of patient corridors.
Every space supports this intent. In the dining area, the choice of Lumetta’s Shadow Box pendant complements, providing a sophisticated light and airy balance within the interior space. These box pendants provide a comfortable level of illumination to enhance the dining area. The TransLumenate® diffuser projects a soft ambient light that augments the natural light and matches the color theme with its inner Lumenate® shade.
Shadow Cube 17” Pendant P2094, a cube version of this custom luminaire, can be found under the Shadow Collection. Made of welded steel and aluminum with a washable exterior TransLumenate® and a washable core Lumenate®.
Lumetta can customize most standard products under each Collection.

For this resort-style senior living place near Scottsdale, AZ, nestled within the landscape of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, Spellman Brady & Company wanted to create an oversized light fixture that felt true to the contemporary, southwestern style of the community.
The interior planning firm worked with Lumetta to find the perfect design and dimensions for the space. Once the scope was narrowed, Custom Studio Drum Pendants in Imperial decorative metal pattern, felt perfect as the lighting element. The geometric, lattice design of the metal, the warm bronze finish, and large scale of the fixture was perfect for the lecture hall lobby. Installing four of these pendants delivered the ideal amount of light for the lobby.
Each pendant measured 23” OD x 44” OH, with decorative metal frame wrapping around the D60 MT Natural Lumenate® from the Fiber design palette, in F7 Powder Coat Bronze finish. At the 44” height, these were ideal for the double height rotunda lobby space.
As envisioned, the luminaires complemented the room’s character and accomplished all of the firm’s design goals in planning the perfect lighting element for the space.

Sun-drenched Fort Myers Beach, FL, is home to the beautiful DiamondHead Beach Resort, noted for its suite accommodations and dining options. Recently, the resort opened Cōste Island Cuisine, a beachfront restaurant featuring panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico.
Cōste was professionally designed featuring a 360-degree quartz bar and floor-to-ceiling windows, covering a total dining and bar square footage of 3,285. Inhabiting the former Chloe’s restaurant space, three room units were taken out, while the bar/lounge was relocated, to take advantage of the water view. The previous space was completely gutted and completed with new finishes, flooring, ceiling, tables, seating and lighting to complement the tropical feel and ensure the breathtaking view is unobstructed.
Project Architect Brooks R. Swanson of design schemes of florida, llc, worked with Ron Gruninger of West Coast Lighting Agency, to select the luminaires that would serve the design focus. Custom Lumetta drums made for an obvious choice. Various drum sizes ranging from 6’ to 8’ in diameter were strategically spread throughout the restaurant without blocking the panoramic views. “The challenge was that the ceiling heights we had to work with were only 9’-2” high, so the depth of these large Lumetta drums were sized to fit the space seamlessly,” shares Brooks.
Seen on the installation are various custom drum pendants: P59617 in 96” OD x 9” H and 4” stem, P57217– 72” OD x 9”H and 30” stem, both with Wood Grain Lumenate®, P58417 in 84” OD x 9”H and 30” stem, with Slate Lumenate®. All luminaires have top and bottom lenses, canopies matching frame, F3 Black powder coat finish, with dimmable LED lamping.

When Isted Technical Sales (Canada) relocated its Regina offices, they saw the move as an opportunity to display their own imagination in lighting design. Why not turn the offices into a living showroom of fixtures from some of the manufacturers they represent? There was the conference room, an important space where team members gather for ideation and updates. With its high ceiling, it could use luminaires that would make the room stand out; displaying “something” not seen every day.
In Lumetta’s L2 Acoustic, they found an embodiment of aesthetic and function; but one fixture was not going to achieve their vision. Going for originality, they assigned a cluster of drum pendants in different diameters– 18”, 23”, 34”, 42” and 48” OD—in the same 14” height. While these all sport a D52MM Silver outer diffuser from the Lumenate® Metallic collection, a mix of energetic Acoustic shades were chosen for the interior. The cluster balances the high ceiling, as well as draws the eye to a central point—the table where ideas of innovation and controls typically surface. Further, the sound dampening attribute of the acoustic helps moderate the positive animation that mark these meetings.

A Pediatric ICU stay can be a traumatic experience for the family. The nature of the care itself is also extra stressful for staff members. These are facts completely understood by the design team of Perkins + Will Dallas, going into ideation over the most suitable design for the unit at Children’s Health. Led by Interior Designer Whitney Hendrickson, the design goal was to create a supportive environment for patients, families, and staff by executing an “Africa: Savanna and Jungle” theme, to tie in with the hospital’s signature style of refined whimsy.
As most children are not able to get out of bed and wander about during their stay, with some even spending weeks staring at the ceiling above their beds, the idea of creating impact on the upper wall and ceilings of the nurses’ station became the design focus. Overall, the savanna and jungle are expressed on the walls with bold, earth-toned illustration, with Echo ceiling luminaires as “clouds”.
A combination of the Echo 23” x 14” drums in Abstract pattern, 33” x 14” drums in Shell pattern, and 44” x 15” drums in Tech pattern, customized as surface mounts, provided the whimsical clouds for the scenery. Per Whitney: “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. The intent for cloud fixtures to glow as a feature element to be enjoyed by the beholder, was flawlessly attained.”

At the children’s play and lounge areas of the St. Bernard and Reading branches of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton county, hang 28” drum pendants with words that amuse and inspire. Champlin Architecture’s Christine Madden worked closely with the library team in executing the design details for a welcoming, whimsical, and curious environment for children’s exploration. Together, they came up with the use of custom graphics as a highlight communication piece.
“The director, herself, thought it would be playful to use words that are customarily associated with libraries as well as those that depict a love of books,” recalls Christine. Words like “shhh”, “love books”, “time”, among others. Where these words will be placed is just as important. The appropriate design needed to encourage the children even as they may lie on the floor and look up, as the two-story building has a tall ceiling. Harmonizing with the height is the abundance of floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The answer? Display them through unobtrusive yet eye catching luminaire pendants.
This is where Lumetta’s custom capabilities became the perfect fit. Lumetta produced multiple Lite drum pendants modified in height: 12” D x 28” H, with white acrylic top and etched white bottom lenses, and carrying custom printed graphics. These luminaires were staggered in plan and elevation to fill the volume of the light-filled spaces. “At night, the custom pendants appear as beacon-like lanterns as viewed from the street. As such, children’s curiosity is captured while providing a sense of levity for the adults.”
