Lighting Designer: Lauri Patterson, One Source Lighting - Billings, MT

Offices have become a blank canvas for designers to break outside of traditional lighting and incorporate innovative lighting that brings color, personality and functionality into the space.
Reciprocity Industries had taken over a basement within an old building that had originally been a warehouse. It was a perfect space to expand this software company's office footprint. Lauri Patterson, lighting designer at One Source Lighting in Billings, Montana, was tasked with creating unique lighting that spoke to the core of their industry: technology and innovation. Lazer Line, a suspended linear lighting system, was chosen to illuminate the office while creating a unique atmosphere and futuristic ambiance using color.
The aesthetic desired was cutting edge, modern, and unique. Lauri decided to convey their technology-focused culture using architectural lighting. There were challenges lighting the space as it had existing duct work and vents to work around. For this space to be a productive working environment, bright, functional light was needed. She selected Lazer Line for its unique uplight/downlight combination with both able to be separately controlled. Lazer Line could also mount beneath the existing ceiling structures and span from wall-to-wall, up to 60 ft., illuminating the work space with no visible diodes.
The downlight is a functional static white light at 3000K, while the uplight on some of the Lazer Line's are a vibrant color-changing RGB. Lazer Line is a patented LED lighting system that creates a paradigm shift with how we use lighting and design within the environment. It utilizes heatsink tape which is fastened and tightened by turnbuckles plastered into the wall or ceiling for a seamless look. It enhances any space with pleasant soft light and delivers designer quality color rendering and multiple color temperatures, including warm dim and tunable white, creating a space that is visually spectacular.
"Communicating the culture of my client's company was important. I also had to work around existing ceiling beams, conduit, vents and pipes. Lazer Line Suspension allowed me to check all the boxes and create the perfect working environment"
