Identify an office or any area you would like with the class and style of the PICARA OS. The Optic Edge design team has created a striking illuminated sign which can be mounted in the location of your preference. The name that you specify is laser cut into a curved and textured piece of acrylic which is then edgelit, providing an even, soft ambient light. The text is then exposed and illuminated to subtly yet effectively identify the area.

Much Mahalo to Darren Kai—Gexpro Honolulu for the recent photos of an interior lighting renovation completed at the Prosource Floorcovering store.


The store previously used 400 watt Metal Halide High Bay fixtures and replaced them with Lithonia’s Spec-Beam™ Series linear fluorescent fixtures which decreased energy use, but increased the lumen output creating a brighter atmosphere which caused the customer to exclaim “HO DA BRIGHT”.  Darren adds, “They are very happy compared to the HID they originally had...better color, instant on/off, less heat, energy savings, better overall lighting, etc.”


If you have a project worth mentioning please send us the info at

Thanks again to Darren Kai for the Photos
