By highlighting art with optical framing projectors, a homeowner can get the kind of look that is normally only seen in museums and galleries. In the past, displaying paintings and sculptures meant blowing up an entire wall with illumination, as this was once the only way to establish a centerpiece in a display.

Modern technology, though, makes it possible to get rid of the excess illumination and only brighten up the subject, producing staggering contrast between the piece and its surroundings.


There are significant benefits to highlighting art with optical framing projectors, in addition to the unique, lit from within effect that other systems cannot produce. These systems are also completely concealable and produce no overhead clutter, a common problem with previous display technologies. They also emit halogen illumination, which is largely considered to be the best at rendering color, so it can bring out all of the subtle features in a painting. And, unlike incandescent and frame mounted installations, shaped illumination cannot damage the painting with heat or radiation, as long as the fixture is fitted with UV filters. This will preserve the subject for as long as possible, extending its life for many more years. Homeowners invest a lot of time and money in their collections, so it makes sense to use the most sophisticated illumination technology available. Shaped illumination is that technology, and Phantom Lighting can make it work for your collection.
