U-SERIES, designed in 2016, is a family of lights that perfectly combines the Arpel Lighting world with the graphic and iconic approach of Belgian designer Sylvain Willenz.
The U-SERIES is a versatile lighting collection ranging from single suspension, to group arrangements and linear compositions. A unique U shaped element, designed with precision and manufactured from extruded aluminium, housing LED technology, constitutes the sole component to endless possibilities. The U-series are suitable for contract use as well as for residential settings.
The LEDs, located at the outer periphery of this U-shape, emit a soft, warm, powerful light whose intensity can be easily adjusted to suit at best the desired atmosphere. The U-SERIES collection comes in either mono-module or multi-modules combining to generate circular or linear compositions.
