Peerless®, an Acuity Brands company, recently announced the release of its Peerless® Venue™ suspended luminaires. The new family of luminaires has been designed specifically for open ceilings.

Where is it? 

Atlanta, Georgia.

Why is it needed? 

Offering both visual comfort and uniform illumination in spaces with deconstructed ceilings, Peerless Venue luminaires bring a unique look and feel to environments. The luminaires are available in rectangular and square shapes, each in either a convex or a concave curvature.

What are its uses? 

As direct/indirect luminaires, Peerless Venue delivers direct light distribution through a dual optical system that creates uniformity across the lens. Indirect optics are recessed along the top of the fixture, distributing light evenly across a ceiling plane. Additionally, Peerless Venue is available with direct-only distribution. Optional dual dimming with an eldoLED® driver provides independent control for uplight and downlight for smooth, flicker-free dimming performance.

Why is it important? 

Networked lighting control is available when Peerless Venue luminaires are specified with nLight® wired controls, which use standard CAT-5e cables, an occupancy sensor, and wall stations.  

“Peerless Venue evokes a feeling of clouds floating across a ceiling,” said Jamal Smith, business unit leader at Peerless. “This unique aesthetic, combined with high-quality uniform illumination, enables a designer to define spaces where people gather and collaborate."  

Key Aspects
  • Made from a one-piece, thermoformed automotive-grade polymer housing
  • Available in black, white, painted aluminum or a range of custom colors
