1 Viabizzuno: System 94 I love to hide as much as possible in the ceiling and it's more discreet than using gimbals. I know quite a few make similar linear systems, but to my knowledge this is the only one that can do curves too, which gives it the edge.
2 Applelec: Light Sheet Still as good as when we first discovered it. Love using it for displays, under shelves and for backlighting. Have even used it as a semi-transparent shelf on its own so it lights the items above and below (see 'skulls' image above).
3 Erco: Parscan spotlight range Really nice that you can interchange the spread lenses without anything being visible (attachment holders and so on.) This means they're good for lighting strange shapes. Very good colour rendering, well made and a design that's simple and not at all fussy.

1 iGuzzini: IN 60 linear profile Lots of options, good distribution, good fabrication, easy to install, generally good all round.
2 ETC: Source 4 Proper optics and great output, best in its class for image projection, reliable.
3 Linea Light: LED tape An affordable, good output tape solution: we've used it in coves and behind stretch ceilings.
