Kalamazoo, MI – October 4, 2017 - Landscape Forms, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-design LED lighting, site furniture, and accessories, announces the Torres light family, a broad line of LED lights designed by Rodrigo Torres in collaboration with Chip Israel of Lighting Design Alliance. “Landscape Forms’ goal is to become the design professionals’ first choice for outdoor lighting solutions,” says Landscape Forms President Richard Heriford. “Torres expands our award-winning lighting offering with another leading-edge design that incorporates the latest in LED technology.”
A graceful, minimalist design is the common language among the area, path, wall, and catenary LED lights that comprise the Torres line. Rodrigo Torres took an iconic streetlight image and shaped it into a sleek, elongated form with both expressive and rational character. “Design leads in everything Landscape Forms does,” says Vice President of Design and Marketing Kirt Martin. “Torres lights demonstrate the care, scrutiny, and rigor we put into every product. Rodrigo’s design is quietly expressive with a universal and intentional appeal that complements a range of architectural styles and urban landscapes.”
Torres area lights are available in two sizes, with single or dual luminaires, and in 12’, 14', 16’, 20’ and 25’ pole heights. A 3' tall path light, wall light, and catenary light round out the line. Each of the light’s LED array and optics is designed for its unique application. Superior visibility, high color rendering, and minimal glare, together with an ecologically friendly warm white (3000K-4000K) LED light, lend security and comfort to outdoor spaces. Cast aluminum parts in a full color palette are finished with Landscape Forms’ proprietary Pangard II® HAPS, VOC, and lead-free polyester powdercoat.
