We’re mixing it up today with a TLA team picks product round up that includes innovative and versatile luminaires from TLA manufacturers Selux and Prudential Lighting. From colorful acoustic lighting to solar bollard solutions to an enhanced version of a go-to linear mainstay, we’ve got a little something for everyone today!
Before we dive into what’s new, let’s introduce our two featured manufacturers: Selux and Prudential Ltg.
Selux: The advantages of a family company & the benefits of a global group
Semper lux— always light. When Hermann Bansbach founded his company in Berlin after the war, the city was devastated and deprived of electricity and light. Mr. Bansbach made the life of Berliners easier with his simple, affordable battery charger, thereby illuminating a dark period in history.
This willingness to evolve is also evidenced by the change from the company’s original name Semperlux to Selux – signaling the transformation of a Berlin artisan’s workshop into a company with over 500 dedicated staff and sites in Europe, North America, and throughout the world.
Evolution does not imitate, it optimizes. Selux’s goal is to develop products that are extraordinary; products that originate in practice but have a different approach.
This enables them to come up with the best solution for all requirements, using digitally controlled light systems for efficient light management, daylight sensors, multimedia playback walls, or colored lighting concepts designed to create a unique lighting ambiance.
At Selux, the future of light is already the present.
Prudential Lighting: LA-made & nationally admired since 1955
Rock-solid heritage, new product heroics. Even with 65-plus years of industry-leading expertise, Prudential Ltg. is looking everywhere but back.
They’ve fully embraced the LED frenzy with an onslaught of beautifully designed, remarkably controlled and amazingly efficient luminaires, all thoughtfully engineered and meticulously manufactured in Los Angeles, California. Trust, innovation, and award-winning designs set Prudential Lighting Company apart.
As a family-run company, they remain true to their core values, wholeheartedly committed to advancing and transforming the illumination experience.

Five new products from Selux
Next up, let’s talk about the five new products from Selux that you need to know about for your next project.
Sound absorbing luminaires go beyond the need for quality of lighting and extend into a world of sound control. With M60 LED Shapes Acoustic, expect the same quality of light and optical performance with the added functionality of sound absorption.
Use M60 LED Shapes Acoustic to provide an enjoyable audible experience and a visually striking space. Improve the architectural environment for occupants by reducing noise and sound reflecting surfaces. Not only do the acoustical luminaires absorb sound, but they elevate the overall look of the space with various shapes, materials, and colors. As open ceilings and sound reflecting ceilings have become more prevalent in modern spaces, there is more demand for luminaires like the M60 LED Shapes Acoustic. Provide excellent lighting and acoustic comfort all in one luminaire.
M60 Shapes Acoustic is offered in multiple shapes and sizes to fit any space. Use individual luminaires or contact the factory for project-specific configurations.
M36 MRC Wall Wash with Micro Reflector Cell (MRC) technology allows for exceptional optical control. M36 MRC WW is a discrete, exceedingly low glare fixture with very narrow lateral throw that allows for precise light placement. Soft and even distribution illuminates the wall from the very top all the way to the floor with high uniformity. With up to 78lm/W, the M36 MRC WW is a high efficiency wall washer with meticulous light control.
Olivio is an impressive, highly efficient lighting concept for urban living environments. The versatility of this product family enables individual design solutions to create functional and atmospheric lighting.
Three luminaire sizes (Grande, Medio, and Piccolo) are combined with the extremely flexible Universal Mount design. Olivio is available as a Bollard, or Universal, Candelabra, Sistema, Sistema 2, and Floracion mountings — ensuring versatility with a cohesive look. Olivio Grande is available with an RGBW light engine or a Gobo projector, allowing for further customization choices for your project.
Olivio Medio is also available as a Solar solution, expanding its usage to remote, off-grid locations.
With a 6” diameter, ELO is the most slender bollard/column family from Selux. ELO uses the scalable Tritec LED refractor. The family consists of bollard, column, and wall mount models with lumen packages up to 8,000lm. The unique optical approach provides effective vertical illumination, interesting aesthetics, and visual comfort.
Selux SteelCore crash rated bollards are designed for protecting pedestrians and property from the threat of vehicular impact. Choose from five decorative illuminated covers (round or square) that can also be matched with unlit SteelCore bollards, blank SteelCore Case bollards, or non-structural versions. Five unique optical options give a variety of solutions to meet IESNA recommended light levels while also meeting crash ratings set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). With an overall outside diameter of 8 inches Selux SteelCore bollards blend inconspicuously into the hardscape and can be combined in a lighting plan with companion columns. This provides protection without the appearance of overwhelming security.
Typical applications for SteelCore Bollards include, but are not limited to, government facilities, police stations, banks, store fronts, sensitive hardscape/landscape areas, parks, bike/pedestrian traffic lanes, and other areas where blocking vehicular access is required.
