ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3M Architectural Markets brings exciting new lighting solutions to the
architecture and design community with the introduction of AIR and FLEX
by 3M. Debuted in an impressive installation by James Mansour at NeoCon
in June, AIR and FLEX represent flexible and beautiful lighting fixtures
that encourage creative customization while also offering a
cost-effective LED lighting source backed by 3M’s history of
technological know-how. The light fixtures join a growing product line
embodying the boutique business’s focus on innovative product design
that prioritizes both form and function.
AIR is an extremely flexible and lightweight hoop fixture available in
a multitude of diameters and combinations of RGB color output. This
fixture creates wide bands of exceptionally even light, and can be
hung as a singular fixture or in a cluster to create a more dramatic
statement. AIR uses energy-efficient, LED sources.
FLEX is a customizable light fixture that can be suspended and curved
to follow architectural lines and create unique, beautifully luminous
installations along walls, ceilings or both. Eleven slender,
lightweight connectable components using energy efficient LED sources
can be mixed and matched for endless flexibility, and are available in
standard or custom finishes.
AIR and FLEX are ideal for a wide variety of settings including retail,
healthcare, hospitality and the workplace. The customizable nature of
the fixtures inspires bold and distinctive design that is also practical
“AIR and FLEX are manifestations of exactly the kind of innovation and
design quality we continue to strive for at 3M Architectural Markets,”
said George Levendusky, Global Business Manager of Design Lighting at
3M. “These fixtures provide the efficiency of an LED with the stunning
qualities of an art installation – a marriage that makes them a smart
addition to any space.”
AIR and FLEX can be seen in a unique design environment at 3M
Architectural Markets’ Minneapolis showroom in the International Market
Square, which was designed by James Mansour and opened in August.
