A recent expansion to the popular Ashbery lighting family by Landscape Forms brings broader performance capabilities to a greater range of outdoor spaces. Designed by New York architect Robert A.M. Stern, the original series references traditional-style outdoor gas lanterns while taking advantage of modern technology.
Retaining its characteristic form and warmth, the expansions are intended to bring designers more options and versatility to craft scenarios with a common design language across varied applications.
Developed for pedestrian-centric settings – from sidewalks, streetscapes and transitional spaces to campuses, parks and public plazas – Ashbery initially only included Type 3 (emits a large light wash for general roadways, parking areas and other large areas) and Type 5 (fixtures that produce an all-around and wide pattern of light for parking lots) light distributions.
Now, Type 2 (casts linear patterns that ideal for streets, roadways, narrow parking lots, pathways and sidewalks) and Type 4 (semicircular illuminating fixtures that are mounted on sides of buildings and walls) are also part of the collection.
Also enhanced are the lumen ranges, options for increased output and a clear lens as a companion or alternative to the existing diffused lens. A smaller-scale fixture has also been added that can be optioned in three pole heights – 8, 10 and 12 feet – as companions to the taller 12-, 14- and 16-foot heights originally offered.
Ashbery is made from cast aluminum and offered in a wide range of lead-free polyester powder-coated colourways and finishes. Single or double luminaries in small or large are available.
