FOCAL POINTFACETTA LED TROFFER
Focal Point turned to Overwatch to assist with in the design the Facetta luminaire for a premium product category. They were seeking the right business partner with the engineering talent to bring a distinct and challenging aesthetic design to market.
The industrial design of the product that was provided to our team created many challenges including:
- Complex sheet metal forming
- Difficult assembly process
- Lens design details required to match the desired aesthetic
The resulting luminaire is a Focal Point exclusive and differentiates them in the 2X2 troffer market space. After a successful product debut in 2016, the Facetta has been exceeding annual sales projections since its launch. The special combination of appearance and performance makes this a product that is specified by both lighting designers and architects, while simultaneously appealing to interior designers as well.
Getting the lens to have a three dimensional appearance in the luminaire when installed in the ceiling is the most intriguing feature of the luminaire. This requirement led the Overwatch team to develop an innovative painting process to achieve the desired look. Initially a manual process, within the first year of production, we developed a custom machine to automate the process based on unit sales climbing above forecast.
