Chroma-Q Color Force Compact is Wired for Broadway Green Alliance

Chroma-Q Color Force Compact Chroma-QNew York, USA, based lighting designer James Bedell recently specified 100 Chroma-Q® Color Force Compact™ fixtures for an installation illuminating the interior of a 10,000 square feet temporary pop-up store in Times Square, NYC, for Wired Magazine.

James is extremely passionate about sustainability and strives to incorporate eco-friendly technologies in all areas of the commercial and entertainment lighting in which he is involved.

This was the first time that James used the new Color Force Compact fixtures, which were chosen after detailed demonstrations and a strong recommendation from the project's lighting suppliers, 4Wall Entertainment.

The Color Force Compact fixtures were positioned all over the store and brought a flourish of industrial chic to the space in addition to illuminating all the areas smoothly and efficiently with their punchy 1700 lumen outputs.

Remarkably, the Color Force Compact fixtures achieved this while pulling less than three Watts of electricity per square foot of space.

Soon after, James was invited by the Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) to give a presentation at New York University's Loewe Theatre, where he stressed all the advantages of using LEDs in this context - energy saving, low maintenance, minimal running costs and an excellent quality of light output.

Manufactured in North America, Chroma-Q, with its wide range of innovative LED solutions is a brand already addressing this phenomenon.
