Top mount T5




With a goal to present the bare fluorescent lamp in prominent manner, the Element series accomplishes this by elevating the lamps high above clean, small profile housings and concealing the sockets with simple, cylindrical cover. Whether surface mounted, suspended from a ceiling or recessed into a wall, the Element fixture provides a bold compliment to contemporary interiors.
