Designing with Light: Lightolier fuses creativity and project management. Capabilities include a new interactive Web site and comprehensive visual selection catalog


Fall River, MA – Lightolier, the leader in interior lighting for over a century, recently launched Designing with Light, redefining how architects and interior designers obtain and manage lighting fixture information to enhance control over project specifications., a personalized online project management site, allows users to select and store the most appropriate lighting fixtures for a given application while providing key information such as budget pricing, lead times, and technical specifications, as well as the ability to build and export fixture schedules. The Designing with Light 176-page visual selection catalog gives designers comprehensive application options and specification information for a broad selection of Lightolier products.

“Architects and interior designers tell us they want easier access to lighting product and application information,” says Bill Schoettler, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Lightolier. “However, sorting through extensive and potentially outdated information is time-consuming and could oblige designers to reuse familiar patterns, rather than exploring the full range of possible solutions. We believe users will benefit from instant access to critical information not always readily available from manufacturers.” features quick-select product search functions and a broad selection of lighting application guidelines. Users can select from more than 1,000 Lightolier products and store technical specifications, photometry, and installation instructions in a personalized project folder. Immediate access to budgetary pricing and lead times along with the ability to create and export fixture schedules expedites a process that formerly occupied hours of busy designers’ time. The site also points users toward supporting distributors and provides contact information for the Lightolier sales organization.

The Designing with Light catalog offers a further source of inspiration and education, encouraging creativity and recommending strategies and resources to achieve desired design effects. The first section outlines the key areas of lighting composition (focal glow, ambient luminescence, and the play of brilliants) in a series of informative photo essays, while the body of the catalog details Lightolier’s product line, along with full specification information and guidelines for effective application.
