Are you tired of the standard panels and fixtures that you see in all facilities? Are you looking for more variety in your lighting design, but you don’t have a designer budget? 3D-printed lighting may be the perfect solution.

Signify is transforming the commercial lighting industry with 3D-printing technology. Here are three reasons you should choose 3D-printed lighting fixtures for your next project.

1. Your Brand, Your Way

By choosing the material, shape, color, opacity, and texture, you can create a unique fixture that will enhance your brand experience. You can even add an embossed logo!

At the end, download your custom spec sheet to share with your designer, contractor, or save it for future reference.

Real-life example: One of our customers needed fixtures for a new location, but because of the long lead times for their standard fixtures, they considered pushing back their opening date. Loeb worked with Signify to provide fast, custom 3D-printed lighting. This was only meant to be a temporary solution; however, the customer was so pleased, they rolled these out across multiple locations!

2. Sustainable Lighting

Your choice of LED lighting already makes a significant positive impact on your sustainability goals. 3D-printed lighting will help you make even more impact.

  • 100% made for a circular economy
    3D-printed luminaires are printed with 100% recyclable polycarbonate and are designed to be fully reused at the end of their lifetime, avoiding waste of material.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint up to 75%
    Compared to traditional aluminum die-casting production methods, 3D printing requires far less energy and material. This brings you a reduction of up to 75% on your carbon footprint.

3. Save on Shipping & Storage Costs

The products are manufactured locally which reduces transport distances for materials, parts, and final products. These fixtures are only printed when you need them to avoid large stock storage. Due to the light weight of polycarbonate, less energy is used during transportation. This drastically reduces CO2 emissions.
