Vector, Artemide • Designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, Vector is a spotlighting system available with two different size fixture heads. The Vector 40 (40mm diameter housing) uses 8.5W of power, provides up to 800 lumens, and is available with three beam spreads: spot, flood, and wide flood. The Vector 55 (55mm diameter housing) uses 22W of power, provides up to 1,760 lumens, and is available with a narrow spot beam spread. Beam control is by way of refractive or hybrid optical units. Available in 3000K or 4000K with a CRI of 90, the fixture head has an aluminum finish. Vector has three installation options: magnetic track, track, or recessed. In the track scenario, because the junction arm is integrated into the fixture-head’s body, the luminaire’s center of gravity is perfectly aligned with the track. The spotlights can be adjusted and locked via a pivoting armature. Track installation allows for DALI control. • artemide.net

The rails are available in three lengths–40", 79", and 118"– and each rail can hold up to 12 fixture heads. Each luminaire uses an 8W, 3000K, 90 CRI LED module that provides 600 lumens and can be powered remotely, directly, or via cord-and-plug. The fixture heads have three optical choices: 10-degree or 30-degree spotlight, 120-degree floodlight, or even illumination via the blown-glass diffuser. Fixture layouts can combine all three lighting variations. • fabbian.us
