The TM ArtPoint™ represents a versatile and inconspicuous lighting mounting solution tailored to cater to the needs of homeowners with evolving or rotating art collections, as well as lighting and interior designers working with clients’ art collections.
The new product allows a much higher degree of flexibility to curate, rotate and rehang your artwork, before during and after project completion, changing the size, mounting and location, whilst maintaining perfect lighting.
The TM ArtPoint offers the same flexibility of a track and spotlight system but has the discretion of a standalone spotlight. Whilst a track and spotlight system provides the perfect solution for gallery and museum settings, it is not an ideal solution in residential environments for two reasons, it can be visually overpowering in a room, and it is not viable in a heritage or listed building where it is not possible to attach track to the ceiling.
The product is a low voltage power point node, which can be installed into the ceiling and plastered-in to leave a small finger sized aperture.
TM’s spotlights can be plugged directly into this aperture and if they are removed, a blanking plug can be inserted in their place, leaving the ceiling with a clean finish.
TM Lighting developed a sprung bayonet fixing mechanism that firmly clicks into position to allow single-handed insertion and removal for ease, with the satisfying reassurance that the action has been completed.
A beneficial feature is that different sized luminaires from the TM Lighting range of high colour rendition spotlights can be plugged into the space – including a brand new spotlight the ‘ZeroForty’ that is just 40mm in diameter and developed with a broad range of optics, using a single LED source for better beam control and quality.
As with all products in the TM Lighting range, high colour rendition lighting is integral in the new spotlight which is installed with the 95+CRI chip to achieve the best quality of light available for lighting art.
