Montreal, QC, August 13, 2018 – Luminis (, an established innovator and manufacturer of specification grade lighting solutions, is pleased to announce that its Aramis AR170 pendant has been selected for inclusion in the 2018 IES Progress Report, an annual publication dedicated to recognizing significant contributions to the lighting industry.

Published by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), a collegial community dedicated to improving the lighted environment, the IES Progress Committee’s mission is to track developments in the art and science of lighting worldwide.

The Aramis AR170, one of a range of products in the broader Aramis family, is a high power cylindrical pendant LED luminaire that combines a clean design aesthetic with high light output for use in interior applications such as shopping malls, retail stores, convention centers, sports centers and transportation terminals.

Like all products in the Aramis family, the Aramis AR170 features a precisely engineered passive convection design, which extends lifetime, optimizes efficiency and achieves 50% greater output than its predecessors – all in a beautifully integrated design. The Aramis AR170 delivers up to 18,000 lumens from a 6” diameter cylinder.

“With Aramis AR170 we’ve pushed the technology further to deliver a new level of outstanding quality.” said Nicolas Cohen, president of Luminis. “It is very rewarding to see the product recognized in such a way, and it validates our commitment to continuous innovation in product development.”

Acceptance in the Progress Report is based on an impartial judging process by the Committee to evaluate each submission on its uniqueness, innovation and significance to the lighting industry. Accepted submittals will be recognized at the Annual Conference in August 2018, as well as be posted on the IES website and published in LD+A magazine.
