Good art lighting finds the fine line between accentuation and saturation, creating a vibrant realism that spectators cannot help but be drawn towards, yet, standard lighting systems involving traditional incandescent or halogen light bulbs are blunt instruments that not only miss this fine line but degrade the piece of art with discoloring brightness and canvas-cracking heat.
Fortunately, now museums and galleries have an alternative choice: the Tru-Slim® Plug-Art Light; working in collaboration with technical experts and art professionals, Cocoweb™ created its LED Art Lights specifically to highlight the best features of an artwork by setting the LED nodes into a slim frame of minimalistic design, the type that so perfectly blends into the background onlookers won’t even notice its essential function, and by choosing a light source with a color rendering index (CRI) of over 90.
The 21-inch Tru-Slim LED Light has 12 evenly spaced nodes that issue a soft light with the color temperature of 2700K – ideal for bringing out the depth and richness of the work’s colors- that can be adjusted to a minute degree up to 420 lumens using the exclusive Cocoweb™ dimmer. Not only are LED lights more energy efficient than standard light bulbs, they also are completely free of mercury- meaning they will not cause toxic pollution when disposed. The 21-inch Tru-Slim® Plug-Art Light is an excellent way to light medium to large sized paintings or portraits and comes in several subtle yet distinguished colored finishes like antique brass, black, black with brass accents, brushed gold, chrome, mahogany bronze, oil rubbed bronze, satin nickel, and white.
