A-Light Wins Two Product Innovation Awards from Architectural SSL Magazine

Absorb I and Relay lighting system both receive 2022 awards

Oceanside, CA, November 12, 2022 – A-Light (, an established best-in-class manufacturer of specification-grade interior lighting solutions, is pleased to announce its Absorb I and Relay luminaires have each received a 2022 Product Innovation Award (PIA) from Architectural SSL magazine.

The PIA recognizes innovative LED and solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market, while also spotlighting the players behind the components that make up these light sources. Judging and evaluation of products and systems was completed by a distinguished panel of 16 designers and lighting specialists skilled in product evaluation. Manufacturers are awarded for products with attributes, qualities, functionality, and/or performance beyond industry standards.

Absorb I is a suspended luminaire with vertical acoustic panels that feature a flanged profile design. Available in two- and four-foot lengths, fixtures can be combined with a discreet joiner system hidden within the luminaire's felt for seamless designs. Continuous runs, squares, or rectangles can be created using 90 or 180-degree angle joiners. Designers can choose various light distributions to achieve the desired direct or indirect illumination.

Relay is a linear pendant system featuring curved and softened design elements that can be configured into diverse geometric patterns with a seamlessly lit shape. Designers can experiment with corner options of 90 and 120-degree angles to create entirely new forms. Relay’s direct lighting offers reduced glare and continuous illumination throughout the fixture, including corners. Indirect lighting features high-performance TIR optics for more controlled and efficient light.

Both luminaires are showcased in the November issue of Architectural SSL magazine.
