The Nivo recessed luminaire is designed to fit into a 2′ x 2′ ceiling opening. The frameless design eliminates any visual distraction, allowing the diffuser to mimic a ceiling panel when mounted flush with the ceiling. The diffuser can also extend below the ceiling up to seven inches in one-inch increments, bringing luminous dimensionality into the architectural space. Judges were impressed by Nivo’s appearance, light distribution, dimming and design flexibility. Since the competition, we’ve added more design options with a new hollow diffuser plus a 4.5″ x 4.5″ downlight version – See more at:


The ID LED high ceiling downlight was chosen for its appearance, lumen output, glare control and color properties. Impressed with its lighting quality and its range of options, judges called ID LED a “beautiful high ceiling downlight” – a credit to our skillfully engineered optical design for precise brightness control.
