by Brianna Crandall — June 16, 2021 — Landscape Forms, a leading North American designer and manufacturer of high-design light-emitting diode (LED) lighting, site furniture, structures and accessories, recently announced enhancements to Arne and Rama lighting, two of its best-selling lights. The luminaires are designed and manufactured by Barcelona-based Urbidermis Santa & Cole and distributed exclusively in North America by Landscape Forms.
“New technologies and materials led Urbidermis Santa & Cole to take a fresh look at Arne and Rama lights,” said Landscape Forms Lighting President Jordan Agustin. The company reengineered the classic fixtures, adding distributions, color temperatures, and LED outputs. “From the inside to the outside, Arne and Rama have been updated to improve performance,” continued Agustin.
Urbidermis Santa & Cole’s Jordi Munoz added:
The updates to Rama and Arne speak to Urbidermis Santa & Cole’s philosophy of designing products for outdoor spaces that have a timelessness and longevity in both function and design. New technologies and materials improve the lights’ performance and durability. We’ve also made changes to simplify installation and maintenance.
Rama’s head includes an interior compartment, easily accessed by an installer, that houses electronics and reserves space for the addition of sensors and controls. A redesigned bracket system adapts to any mount or surface.
Attachment brackets on Arne have been redesigned to also ease installation. The LED arrays in both products have been updated with a modernized design.
The Arne indirect light has a new design and mounting and distribution options. Now mounted to the side of a pole, the indirect light more closely resembles the other Arne pole-mounted fixtures.
Arne’s classic simplicity and Rama’s distinctive linear form remain the strong statements in the updated luminaires. “These enhancements modernize the best-selling designs and make an excellent product that much better,” said Agustin.
Vice President of Marketing and Design and Chief Creative Officer Kirt Martin remarked:
Urbidermis Santa & Cole has a strong design pedigree. It brings a uniquely European aesthetic to our offering, and its partnerships with industrial designers from around the world enhance the products we offer our North American customers.
Arne was inspired by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen, and Rama was designed by Spanish industrial designer Gonzalo Milá.
