It is with great pleasure that DSA announces our newest partnership with Visual Lighting Technologies (VLT)!
In 2000, VLT got started in fiber optic lighting with a simple guiding principle “Do it the Right Way”. That dedication to quality and performance made VLT the premier U.S. supplier for specification grade fiber optic systems.
As LEDs brought dramatic changes to the lighting industry, VLT transitioned from fiber-focused past to the LED future. From simple kitchen under-cabinet applications to high-profile retail projects, VLT’s LED linear, panel and display products have won a devoted following with architects, designers and lighting specifiers.
Over the years VLT have expanded their product range with the VLTLED Outdoor collection of bollards, path lights, sconces and accent fixtures, and they’ve continually enhanced and expanded the EssentialLEDs line of products.
Whether an application calls for LED or fiber optic lighting, indoors or out, specifiers can rely on Visual Lighting Technologies to provide first class products, comprehensive support, and the great follow-through they’ve been known for since the beginning.

Hess America announces the Mosaic illuminating column has won a Product Innovation Award (PIA) for Architectural Products magazine. The awards program seeks to recognize the development and refinement of buildings-related products across a wide range of trades and disciplines.
The Mosaic illuminated columns add formality and definition to outdoor spaces through the artistic interplay of light and shadows. Available in 10′, 12′, or 14′ heights, Mosaic features decorative panels with organic styling cues ranging from woven palm fronds to ice bloom formation. For larger projects, designers have the option to specify custom panel designs for messaging or to match site aesthetics.
A single luminaire backlights the patterned panels from within. LED light sources may be monochrome in white or single colors for simple ambiance. Light sources may also be RGB, RGBW, or dynamic white to create colorful scenes and effects when using onboard sequencing or external DMX control system.
Contact a DSA representative today to see how you can use Hess’ Mosaic illuminating column on your next project.
