Nichia will be exhibiting at the first in-person lighting exhibition of the year at [d]arc room pop-up @ Design London on 22-25 September. [d]arc room pop-up is a dedicated lighting area within Design London, featuring a highly curated selection of brands. The exclusive event brings lighting designers, architects, interior designers, developers and retailers together under one roof.
At [d]arc room pop-up, Nichia will present its award-winning H6 LED series. This new family of LEDs delivers the highest multi-level boost in colour rendition and efficacy, while maintaining the outstanding lifetime expected from Nichia. The H6 series delivers a CRI of 90, while maintaining a level of efficacy seen in standard CRI 80 LEDs, meaning that lighting professionals no longer have to choose between high colour rendering and high efficacy.
Nichia’s H6 LED series provides better all-round performance for those luminaires targeting demanding environments, especially in shops, restaurants, hotels and galleries where colour rendering and energy savings are imperative design considerations. The solutions are particularly useful for general illumination fixtures – such as troffers, tracks, downlights and spotlights, among others – to boost the vividness of rich coloured objects as well as to set mood and add accents in retail and hospitality venues.
Nichia’s H6 series takes advantage of a unique red narrow band phosphor technology, among other semiconductor processes and packaging techniques, to develop LEDs that achieve a colour quality better than traditional CRI 90 LEDs with R9 content greater than 50 while maintaining an efficacy better than many CRI 80 LEDs. The 0.2W H6 series delivers a typical luminous efficacy of 200lm/W, a 20% increase in efficacy compared to many CRI 90 LEDs available in the market.
Nichia will be joined by Formula Luci Italia, a luminaire manufacturer specialising in luxury store lighting. Together at stand DR12, they will showcase H6 as an unrivalled lighting solution in luxury retail.
