New: Riff Drum Pendant

  • Mon, 11/01/2021



Visa Lighting is proud to unveil its new LED drum pendant light, Riff, which takes a popular luminaire shape and creates a fresh modern interpretation. The simple, drum silhouette is created with thin, artfully-rolled aluminum. This metal shade is fitted with a contoured inner reflector hand-spun by our skilled crafts-people. As a result, Riff’s concave inner spinning beautifully juxtaposes the crisp, straight-sided outer fixture housing. 


Riff also hangs from the ceiling at the end of a thin power cable, and the wide underside lets a bright and even light layer emanate out, illuminating the space below with ease.


Rather than utilize exposed lamping, Riff relies on a flat, acrylic diffuser that sits over the LED sources, catching the eye with not-so-subtle detail. Riff's LED diffuser was optimized to reduce glare and create the most comfortable light. “We built a test setup where we could keep moving the LEDs back until they lit up the acrylic evenly,” says Visa Lighting’s Lead Product Engineer, Alex Murray. “This distributes functional light over a larger surface area.”


Riff's sharp lines and smooth, curved underside can also become a canvas for a pop of color. Designers can create a color story by selecting any two of our more than 25 painted finishes or alternative metal finishes.


“We wanted to create a fixture with depth, to draw attention to the contoured inner reflector," says Visa Lighting Senior Industrial Designer Hans Nielson. “The crisp lines and carefully proportioned visual weight of the fixture help make a subtle, yet confident statement in spaces of any style." 


This high-performance downlight pendant is offered in three sizes from 16 inches to 32 inches with a 90CRI option and an integral LED driver-in-canopy. 


Riff is designed to produce downlight exclusively, which lends itself well to both large, open spaces (like office and retail floors), as well as cozy environments like dining areas, hospitality, conference rooms, and other intimate spaces.
