Vancouver, British Colombia – Easily distinguished by their classic architectural lines, the Archilume brand has taken another step forward by adding a new form to their innovative lighting collection. Inspired by nature, Ovolo is derived from a bed of river rocks. Minimalist with an ultra-shallow, soft, organic form, Ovolo encompasses the idea of well-being. Calm, soothing and unencumbered, Archilume’s Ovolo possesses a subtle allure.
Ovolo is Archilume’s first OLED technology pendant. Earlier in May 2021, OLEDWorks, the leading manufacturer of OLED lighting technology announced Archilume as their newest partner in their Channel Partner Program, which grants luminaire manufacturers expanded access to OLED technology, engineering mindshare, and marketing and sales advocacy.
Ovolo’s gentle contours provided a great opportunity for the brand to work with the technology. Ovolo features a naturally diffuse human-centric OLED light source that provides a soft yet bright full-spectrum illumination resulting in an artificial light that resembles daylight. The light source is ultra-thin with a broad surface area. The quality of light mirrors the formal expression of the luminaire – soft, diffused, and comfortable. A reduced minimal look with the poetic influence of a natural organic form. The pendant is available with a dimmable 3-watt OLED light source with an output of 200 lumens, 3000K, 90 CRI, R9 >50. It can hang as a single element or in groups to create an inspiring lighting installation on a grand scale in dining areas, lobbies, and stairwells. The ultra-shallow form allows hanging the pendant at lower heights without compromising views, performance, or visibility.
Ovolo's housing is fashioned from aircraft-grade machined aluminum and is available in several anodized finishes including champagne, black, gold, and silver. These are aligned with current trends and allow designers to create the desired aesthetics for their spaces.
There are multiple mounting options for this luminaire. Ovolo can be mounted with a standard 4.25" diameter canopy, a micro-canopy featuring a small 1.5" (38mm) diameter discreet ceiling mount, or Archilume's signature Configurate surface mounted canopy system available in three geometric shapes which allows for unique bespoke installations in multiple patterns.
