Feather range from Jordan Reflectors Limited

Feather is a wire suspended luminaire offering direct and indirect illumination but featuring a completely transparent appearance when switched off.

Each luminaire can be remotely switched, dimmed and set to one of 4 pre-set colour temperatures by the remote handheld controller. The controller can also be used to easily assign luminaires into groups to provide scene setting.
When off, the transparent optics allow the luminaires to unobtrusively blend into their surroundings.
The Feather range is available in both rectangular or circular format and benefits from the SELV LED power supply being fed down the suspension wires (no unsightly power cable connected to the optic).
Other features include: 4300 lumens (rectangular)/3500 lumens (circular), remote dimming and colour temperature adjustment, long life – energy efficient LEDs, equal illumination above and below optic, simple installation and transparent optics (when OFF).
