Contour Lighting Projectors are today’s most advanced choice when it comes to illuminating fine masterpieces. These state-of-the-art fixtures enhance the inherent beauty of paintings and sculptures with a brilliance and radiance never seen before, producing the so-called “lighted from within effect.”
These exceptional fixtures feature a contoured light beam that captures the silhouette of the art object and crisply defines its outline. The illumination is achieved through a powerful LED light engine that works alone (for a vivid brightness) or in concert with a dimmer (for a more subtle glimmer).
Contour lighting projectors deflect harmful ultraviolet and infrared rays and are therefore safe to illuminate prized art of practically any medium, including oil and water colors, acrylics, plaster and more. This suitability for a diverse range of materials is a significant advantage over natural sun exposure, which tends to fade colors and textiles over time. Projector luminance is also superior to fluorescent or halogen fixtures, which actually generate potentially harmful UV rays that can damage sensitive materials. Fluorescent illumination, like its incandescent counterpart, is also known for its mediocre rendering of colors.
Projectors are highly versatile and available in a range of designs, making them a perfect choice that fits within the technical parameters of just about any circumstance. Almost all versions are recessed into the ceiling and feature a near-flat cover plate that can be camouflaged with paint so as not to disturb the integrity of the ceiling. Each type necessitates apertures of minimal diameter. Some models require attic access for proper installation, while others can be mounted from below. Most fixtures of this type are relatively easy to install, but the guidance and/or installation by professionals is recommended for the illumination of three-dimensional art pieces.
Phantom Contour Projectors feature all of the optical characteristics of the world’s best lighting when it comes to illuminating fine art. Our patented LED framing projectors are discrete, high performance, flexible and designed to showcase art and sculptures of any size or shape. Interior designers, art collectors and lighting professionals all turn to Phantom art lighting technology when traditional lighting methods don’t fit the requirements or the project requires the very best. With four low-profile recessed housings and a sleek contemporary surface mount option, Phantom LED Contour Projectors are designed to fit seamlessly into any residential or commercial setting. They contain a proprietary variable optical system that allows focused light to be shaped into a pattern that only illuminates the artwork, not the surrounding wall. This allows friends, family and guests to see the art in a new light – one that enhances color, reveals hidden details and provides a unique visual perspective in art appreciation. Some have called this art lighting phenomenon extraordinary or outstanding; we simply call it the Contour Projector!
