Gotham is pleased to introduce Candéo LED: an intelligent blend of compact fluorescent general illumination and multicolor LED technology.  From its inception, the Candéo Series has made a distinct decorative impression – all the while providing effective, practical illumination. The application is much the same with Candéo LED - the difference being Gotham has harnessed the color-changing capability of LEDs to create a decorative tool that is as dynamic as it is beautiful!


Candéo LED provides ultimate decorative luminaire design freedom. Whether the desire is to change colors continuously, or dial in on a specific color, the designer selects a scheme that meets design objectives for the space.


Select Product Features 

·         Decorative Performance Downlighting – The patent-pending dual optical design provides general illumination with an exclusive Gotham Bounding Ray TM reflector, while the outer optical surfaces are washed by the saturated color of the LEDs. The compact fluorescent and LED sources may be independently controlled, allowing either source to be turned on or off. The compact fluorescent lamp can even be dimmed, if a dimming ballast is specified.

·         Three Control Choices – Integrated software allows users to select from nine fixed colors or nine color-change modes with many timing cycle options. These standard programs are controlled by (1) switches located on the LED driver on the luminaire mounting frame; (2) a remote digital wall station (LFVRS); or (3) DMX512 theatrical controllers (supplied by others; all Candéo LED downlights are wired to communicate with these common controllers). For details regarding control and network capabilities, please visit www.gothamlighting.com.
