Bringing the Outdoors In: Cree Lighting Announces Availability of the Cadiant™ Dynamic Skylight at LIGHTFAIR International 2019

The lighting innovator is also introducing the brand-new Stylus Series specification line of linear products and the VuePoint Series, a groundbreaking new retail high-bay concept.

PHILADELPHIA--()--Cree Lighting today announced the availability of the architectural-grade Cadiant dynamic skylight, an industry-first luminaire that recreates the experience of being under a natural sky with remarkable realism.

Available to order starting in August 2019 and currently on display at LIGHTFAIR International 2019 in Philadelphia, the Cadiant™ dynamic skylight creates the sensation of natural sunlight and a blue sky in interior spaces via a virtual skylight experience. Cadiant uses advanced lighting controls in combination with multi-dimensional LED panels and color-changing technology to simulate the natural dawn to dusk, east-to-west arc of the sun, providing a valuable sensory connection to the outdoors for people working in spaces without access to natural daylight.

Since we first introduced the Cadiant concept it has been met with enthusiasm from across the industry,” said Kathryn Caspar, vice president, indoor product marketing, Cree Lighting. “Cadiant is a remarkable breakthrough lighting experience that enhances architectural designs with visual impact and dramatic scene-setting, allowing people to feel a real connection to the outdoors. We are excited to announce that it will be available to order this summer.”

The Cadiant™ dynamic skylight is a local standalone system that uses SmartCast® Technology advanced lighting controls to interact and connect with other fixtures in a space, creating an overall scene that enhances the design of the space. An intuitive SmartCast® wall-mounted touchscreen provides easy control over multiple Cadiant™ dynamic skylights with both automatic presets and manual control for a complete lighting experience that is designed solely for the people in the space.

For architects, lighting designers and specifiers seeking the visual impact and natural benefits of a real skylight — but without the associated high costs or construction limitations — the Cadiant™ experience is a stimulating, dynamic lighting solution that is simple to specify for both new construction and retrofits, bringing the outdoors in to any interior space.

Attendees can see the impressive Cadiant™ experience in Cree Lighting Booth #2119.
