By TLA Staff


Hi there and welcome to TLA’s New Manufacturer Spotlight – Spring 2021 Edition, Volume 1!

Today we’re introducing three innovative architectural lines from The Lighting Quotient family: Elliptipar, Meyer, and Tambient. Read on to learn about each of these manufacturers and why our team is so excited to add their products to our catalog.

The Lighting Quotient designs, engineers and manufactures advanced luminaires for architects, lighting designers, interiors experts, and the entire professional lighting community. From simple utilitarian structures to grand architectural masterpieces, they combine serious engineering performance with elegant artistic design: The perfect equation.

Founded in 1977 by architectural lighting pioneer, Sylvan R. Shemitz, The Lighting Quotient today is an exciting new vision of a venerable heritage. Their rich history of innovation continues to drive inventive design and uncompromising quality, but their minds are focused fully on today’s challenges and tomorrow’s science, adapting existing technologies and inventing new ones for the ever-changing needs of today’s lighting professionals.


TLA New Manufacturer Spotlight: Elliptipar


The best-in-class of asymmetric performance luminaires, Elliptipar produces an even wash of light across any architectural surface, no matter how broad or tall. The same iconic reflector used for all traditional light sources now also serves as a superior heat sink for our even better asymmetric LED optics, including patented fraqtir™ technology.

The iconic Elliptipar asymmetric luminaire, invented in 1965 by lighting pioneer Sy Shemitz, is based on the need to produce an even wash of light across an architectural plane – creating a luminous surface from a minimal setback. Asymmetric lighting illuminates surfaces from more accessible vantage points by positioning the luminaires at the edge of the plane, removing obstructions and focusing attention on the surface rather than the luminaire. By expertly distributing light where it is truly needed, Elliptipar has ideal solutions for a multitude of applications.
