Visa Lighting recently released a new luminaire family, Sequence Mini, engineered to accomplish a lighting first: fit a functional, comfortable downlight into a luminous architectural pendant that’s only 2” in diameter. Sequence Mini is the first 2”-diameter pendant of its kind with an optional downlight—a feature that was important to get right. Engineers performed many tests to optimize the highest safe output and find the right optics. It wasn’t simply a matter of fitting the downlight into the aperture. It had to perform beautifully.

However, because this new luminaire is only 2” in diameter and includes shorter models, the familiar luminous cylinder element can now be used in smaller spaces. Reception areas, dining rooms, bars, small lobbies, and conference rooms with lower ceiling height are areas that could benefit from a smaller pendant that provides task lighting or illuminates other design features below. This design is also well-suited for multi-fixture cluster installations due to their slim forms and multiple lengths.
