ALA is pleased to announce the Representation of Extant Architectural Lighting. With decades of industry insight, founders Steve Koch, Erik Smith, and Bill Lynch are driven to define what’s next in architectural lighting. Together, we design and craft architectural lighting on the west coast. And we do it with style. Unbound by convention, Extant dares differently, from our stylish product line to an unparalleled focus on customer care.
Extant is truly driven to define what’s next in architectural lighting. Their innovative Microstructure EdgeTech Optics (MEO) delivers unparalleled optic control and exceptional performance with seamless illumination and uniformity. Pixelation, hot spots, and lens breaks are a thing of the past. MEO allows us to craft high performing, low-profile fixtures with optic options like batwing, glare control and diffused light distributions.
Extant Architectural Lighting also provides simplified methods for accessibility and maintenance unthought of before. Contact us to see a sample to fully experience how this fixture performs.
As the flagship offering, the Huntington Series takes advantage of MEO allowing for a minimalistic 1.5″ Aperture with extremely low profiles with lengths in upwards of 400′ with no lens breaks or seams. The fixture also boasts exceptional Emergency Battery integration and integral driver options.
