Spredlite Wallgrazer

Spredlite is the first, and still the finest. Spredlite was first designed for Mies van der Rohe's acclaimed Seagram building in New York City. Travertine walls, which appear to float in light, stand at the core of the lobby. Its glow is visible through the lobby's outer glass walls, mesmerizing passerbys. Behind the effect was the lighting designer Richard Kelly and our own Edison Price. To realize Kelly's vision, Price designed the first wallgrazing system, the Spredlite.

Spredlite continues to illuminate challenging surface around the world. For the lobby of the new United States embassy in London, distinguished lighting designers Fisher Marantz Stone Partners again sought the Spredlite. The result is pictured above.

Spredlite is powerful, efficient, and affordable. You too can entrust Spredlite to illuminate challenging textured (rough stone, wood, mosaic) or specular (polished stone, glass, Ventian plaster) walls.

EXQUISITE walls

The walls of lobbies and other important spaces are often finished with marble, plaster, and other fine materials. They are the interior's focal point, or even the first impression when visitors enter a building. By carefully and uniformly illuminating these walls, Spredlite honors this investment. 

TEXTURED WALLS
Spredlite illuminates textured walls consistently.

  • matte-finished stone: marble, sandstone, limestone, travertine
  • wood, especially with expressed graining
  • fabric, either stretched or draped
  • tile, particularly mosaics glass with an etched pattern
  • plaster or stucco

SMOOTH WALLS
Spredlite illuminates smooth walls without hot spots.

  • polished stone
  • metal panels
  • stainless steel
  • etched glass

 

INSTALLATION

  • Architectural cove mounting, so that the wall below glows from some mysterious source.  The specification sheet details cove dimensions for optimal wall grazing and shielding of the Spredlite from view.
  • Shielding ensured by baffles (PV), for spaces where people may look into the fixture down the length of the wall.
  • Custom painted housings available.
  • Curved walls may be accommodated as a modification. Contact our Technical Sales department with the curved cove's length and radius.
