Spectral Lighting (stand LS360) will be showcasing IRIS L. Of what appears to be hanging in space, the Iris LED and IRIS L intrigues and fascinates with rings of shimmering light and creative use of colour. The striking design is made with dual sided LED boards, bringing the benefits of highly efficient LED lighting to a visually stunning aesthetic.

Changing the Faces of Composites (stand 226) presents Kimorra a brand of laminate veneer sheets which transforms textiles into materials for hard surfaces.
