Alcon Lighting chooses Minimal, Solid, and Clean.
Alcon Lighting offers our customers LED lighting options that are contemporary and sophisticated. These lights can be put in a wide varietyof homes and not look out of place. Our customers really appreciate their timeless appeal because they look simple, and elegant – two qualities that really work well in a home that has a modern interior design motif.
Dimming for All
It’s really important to set the right ambiance in your home. Lighting can be a huge factor in setting that tone; whether it’s when you’re entertaining, or it’s a regular week night at home with your family. You need a different amount of lighting when you or your children are sitting at the table doing their homework, or at 9:00PM, when you are winding down and the kids are in bed. Adjusting your lighting accordingly will help your body stay in sync with its circadian rhythm.
Styles and Sizes
Another great feature of the options here at Alcon Lighting is that despite our more modern leanings, we do still offer a variety of styles and different sizes to choose from. You have options for the shape of the mount, you can choose from round, square, or rectangular, and you can select how many lights you want on the fixture (you can have up to four) to control the brightness of your room. Customers can even select the diameter of the individual lights on their fixture (ranging from 2″-6″). When you come to Alcon Lighting, you have a lot of options to make the lighting perfect for your homes.
Short Build Times
No one wants to wait a long time for their lighting after they order it. We understand that home improvements can be disruptive; sometimes deliveries being made efficiently can mean the difference between ending a renovation project on time or ahead of schedule. This is the reason why Alcon makes every effort to ensure that you get your product quickly. Most of the products we sell can be shipped within three days and we aim to have every order delivered within four weeks, at the latest – even for special, customized orders.
Alcon Lighting produces high end recessed light options for customers seeking a modern and tasteful look for their home lighting. The lights available come with many options, including style and size based on your needs and tastes. The next time you decide it’s time for new lighting, check us out first.
David Hakimi is a lighting specialist and one of the co-founders of Alcon Lighting. A graduate of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), David works on the front lines of the energy-efficient lighting revolution, enabling architects, designers, and lighting engineers to transition from outmoded halogen and fluorescent lighting. David takes particular pride in Alcon’s design, energy, and green building knowledge, tracing his and Alcon’s commitment to quality, innovation, accountability and value back to the lessons learned from his father, a Southern California lighting salesman and consultant for more than two decades. Passionate about climate change and protecting the environment, David has been particularly valuable in ensuring that his clients and customers comply with rapidly-evolving green building codes.
At Alcon Lighting’s LA headquarters, co-founder David Hakimi adopted a 12 year-old dog named Nano and decided to bring him into the office every day. Let’s just say it garnered some attention. It quickly became clear that Nano, who’s now 14 years old, relishes a long nap. Nano likes to hop and curl up in an easy chair, resting his head on the arm, drifting into slumber. In fact, David says this is Nano’s favorite activity.
If the work of lighting design was just left to services engineers to meet regulation-determined illuminance criteria per application, then interior and exterior architectural spaces would become soulless environments. Using qualitative measurements, architects and lighting designers can make sure the architectural intention and aesthetic character of a space is not compromised.
“98% of what gets built today is sh**. There’s no sense of design nor respect for humanity or anything. They’re bad buildings and that’s it.” – Frank Gehry. Fun fact: One of Frank Gehry’s most famous works as an architect is his own private Santa Monica residence.
The term Architectural Lighting encompasses three main factors. The first is the building’s aesthetic, which is crucial for any commercial, especially retail, environment. The second consideration is ergonomic or functional — any aspect which improves one’s ability to live, work, function, relax or play — to make the space easier to use. The third aspect involves the efficiency of energy, ensuring that light is properly, which is to say economically or optimally, used and distributed.
In 2016, Architectural Lighting interviewed lighting designer and founder of Pfarré Lighting Design, Gerd Pfarré, shedding light on the legendary designer’s process, what’s most important when lighting a space and what the future holds for lighting. While Pfarré’s is a career is a storied one, he did not start out in the industry.
