FAQ: What is the Difference Between CRI and CCT?

Apr
24

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A fixture's CRI and CCT are both very important. But what do these measurements mean? We're here to lay out exactly why they're important, and what you should be aiming for with your lighting.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17267" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

CRI (Color Rendering Index) and R9 Value

 

What does it mean?

CRI, or Color Rendering Index, determines how accurately the lighting renders eight pastel colors. If the light renders these colors well, it should render all colors well. CRI is measured from 0-100. Generally, a CRI above 90 is considered great, and a CRI of 95 is best using today's technology. Whenever CRI is considered, the term "R9" follows close behind. This is the value to determine how accurately the light can render a true red. An R9 value of 60 or above is considered good, although the higher the R9, the better.  

Why does it matter?

A high CRI and R9 value is important in the case of depicting colors accurately in cases such as picture lighting for accurate paint colors, vanity lighting for applying makeup, restaurant lighting to depict food in an appetizing way, and retail lighting to show clothing or products in their truest colors.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17268" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

CCT (Correlated Color Temperature)

 

What does it mean?

CCT, or Correlated Color Temperature, determines how amber or blue the light's color is. CCT is measured in Kelvin and can range from 1900K to 7500K. The lower the number, the more amber the light's color is. 1900K is warm enough to be considered equivalent to candlelight. The higher the Kelvin, the bluer the temperature becomes. 5000K is very cool, equivalent to daylight.  

Why does it matter?

Intimate spaces warrant warmer light temperatures, as opposed to productive spaces calling for cooler light temperatures. We recommend restaurants, living rooms, lounges, and bedrooms use 2400K-3000K color temperatures. Office spaces, health-field spaces, and bathrooms can get cooler, with 3000K-4000K temperatures. Learn more about the ideal color temperature for your space here.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="14618" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.juniper-design.com/frequently-asked-questions/"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Essentially, both measurements should be taken into consideration when choosing lighting for any space. Aiming for the highest CRI and R9 value possible determines accurate color rendering, and knowing which color temperature is ideal for your space will help create the right mood. Juniper offers contemporary lighting in a range of color temperatures, all with a 90+ CRI because we know how important these values are for ideal lighting designs.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Learn About Juniper" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fcompany%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Read More FAQ's" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Ffrequently-asked-questions%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Camp David in Industry City Elevates the Modern Coworking Space

Apr
22

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Camp David, a modern coworking space, resides in Industry City, as neighbors to Juniper. As a well-designed, carefully planned reinvention of the modern-day workplace, Camp David offers a sanctuary for small businesses, creative studios, and remote employees. In many of the office spaces, Camp David has placed THIN Task Lamps as task lighting to illuminate their desks. We spoke with Hannah, Brand Manager, and Robin, Membership Development Manager, to learn more about Camp David's ethos, the design of their space, and their future plans.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_gallery interval="3" images="17413,17410,17416" img_size="full" onclick=""][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

What's Camp David's mission?

Camp David's mission is to provide entrepreneurs, freelancers and small businesses with flexible and functional workspace within an aesthetically pleasing environment.  

Tell us about the design of your space.

The space is comprised of 50k sq ft spanning three floors. It was designed by David M. Sullivan, along with our founders Mazdack Rassi and Erez Shternlicht and they drew inspiration from Mies van der Rohe and Charlotte Perriand. There was an enormous focus on preserving the integrity of the existing space and its history while simultaneously creating a beautiful and timeless work environment–– we love the concrete columns and beams, original pine flooring and of course of view of lady liberty at sunset from our courtyard.  

Why did you choose Juniper THIN Task Lamps for the desktops?

Every element of Camp David's design has been carefully considered, from our custom finishes to our task lamps. We selected the Juniper desk lamp because of its streamlined design and practical functionality embodies Camp David's mantra of "less is more". We love supporting independent designers within Industry City's ecosystem. Camp David is an LED only zone!  

What's your experience in the Industry City's campus?

We love acting as nucleus for the campus, where members can take care of business or socialize outside of where they spend most their time. It's inspiring to be surrounded by hundreds of innovative businesses and creative companies and playing a part in the progression of the complex as a whole.  

What are your plans for the future of Camp David?

We have been focusing on providing enriching content through events our members love most –– Breakfast discussions, author talks, happy hours. We are gearing up to expand another 20k sq ft within Industry City and are excited to continue growing our community.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_gallery interval="3" images="17420,17421,17422,17419" img_size="full" onclick=""][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Explore More Lighting Projects" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fprojects%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Read More Articles" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fmodern-lighting-blog%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

“When we decided to launch our brand internationally, New York was a natural choice. It was home [at one point] to both of us and it’s where we conceived of our business, so it’s always been a special place.”

-Das, Co-Founder

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Architectural Digest highlights the Brooklyn campus as a booming design center, quickly evolving out of its industrial history and into a design-focused collection of small studios and shops, complete with food courts and outdoor hubs. With the bones of the building preserved in their industrial aesthetic, DeMuro Das elevated the space into a modern-industrial style with luxurious elements (aka their furniture designs).   Juniper's THIN Lighting System is utilized as the space's sole light source, second to the sun-soaked wall-to-wall windows. The ultra-thin profile of the solid brass light segments complements the space's simplicity and modern design. The fixtures unify all corners of the space through a Satin Brass finish. A THIN Primaries Hexagon and enlarged THIN Primaries Rhombus adorn the back corners of the space, while a THIN Primaries Rectangle greets guests upon entry, and a THIN Multiples Dyad is suspended above the reception desk and office area of the showroom.   DeMuro Das continues to expand into stores from Chicago to Palm Beach with options in London.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Designer Highlight: Chris Taylor, Creative Director of Morris Adjmi

Mar
29

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Chris Taylor joined Morris Adjmi architects in 2012. In his role as Creative Director for Interiors, he works on many of the firm’s projects and ensures that all finished interiors are not only consistent with MA’s high design standards but are also harmoniously integrated with the entire building to produce a comprehensive, unified vision. He is particularly involved with large-scale residential and hospitality projects such as the Atlantic Plumbing buildings in Washington D.C. and the ROOST extended stay hotels. Prior to joining MA, Chris worked as an interior designer for a boutique firm in his native Sydney, Australia where he focused on conceptual design and interior detailing.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17197" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://www.ma.com/"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

1. What is your design background?

Studied Interior Architecture in Sydney and cut my teeth with a lot of fast-paced fashion retail and hospitality design back home before coming to NYC in 2012 to tackle larger scale residential and commercial projects with MA.
 

2. What are some of your favorite projects that you've worked on? Why?

The ROOST apartment hotel projects feel special because we helped create a brand from its inception. The first two properties made use of existing buildings so the brand aesthetic had to be strong enough to hold up within another building’s story. Every apartment feels unique -aimed to inspire guests and feel like a friend’s place that you’ve always wanted to stay in. The brand has since set the tone for the extended stay sector within the industry.
Our latest completed ROOST opened a few months ago at The Girard building in center city Philadelphia in an MA ground up building which is a first  – but also a dynamic project in itself with expansive, hotel-like amenities that fall somewhere between the residential and hospitality world.
We’re also in construction for a 61 room hotel out in the Rockaways – (including 7 extended stay suites). The location is a reminder of the city’s diversity – there are so many facets to New York and The Rockaways is a unique pocket where urban meets the beach…we’ve been conscious of creating spaces that resonate with the neighborhood and tell its story – the goal is that every guest feels like a local!
 

3. What are your favorite and least favorite design tips? Why?

Favorite design tip - don’t be afraid of color. Color in a space can be challenging but so rewarding when it’s done right. It can elevate or set a mood for a room in a second without any other pieces and I love that. Often in the work we do clients will resort to a neutral palette – it’s nice when we can find a happy medium.
Least favorite tip -I don’t always agree when a lighting designer tells me I need to light artwork…I think it depends on the piece – some work need shadow and look great in dark rooms. I don’t really think there are any design “rules” that you have to follow in general there are always exceptions…
 

4. How would you describe your design aesthetic?

A modern sensibility grounded in function and utility, but layered with honest material choices and lived-in warmth.
 

5. Why do you want to choose Juniper lighting in a possible project, and what is your favorite Juniper fixture?

Juniper’s principles for design ring true to MA’s interior studio and work – elegant restraint and obsessive about detail. The product is inherently modern but timeless which is why we love it.
Our new favorite is the outdoor Rail system - we just proposed for a  new rooftop terrace. It’s a deceptively simple fixture with loads of configurations – I love how stealth yet functional it is.

The 5,000 square foot facility holds our machinery, assembly, inventory, quality control, and packing areas, as well as a full office space and showroom. Shant Madjarian reflects on the beginnings of Juniper. Beginning at a young age in his father's manufacturing shop in Montreal, Shant came to New York as a natural entrepreneur. At first, he focused his efforts in economics, although eventually felt the need to own his own business. Revisiting his lighting roots, he began Juniper as a fresh and modern interpretation of his father's traditional lighting business, utilizing old-school methods, such as brass finishing, in a contemporary lighting collection.   Within architectural lighting, Juniper's focus is system-based lighting, mostly within offices, coworking, and hospitality spaces worldwide. It is in these projects where Juniper thrives with custom options and the ability to implement its modern LED lighting systems throughout an entire space. Shant Madjarian discusses the THIN Task Lamp, designed by Peter Bristol, as the start of the THIN System. The adjustable table lamp eventually translated into linear, geometric, and desk-mounted systems and continues to grow. As our collection grows, so does our team. Juniper has jumped to about 25 people in 2018, with a majority of women in administrative and assembly positions. With a worldwide reach in clientele, Juniper continues to expand to all corners of the globe.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Explore More Press Features" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fpress%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Read More Articles" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fmodern-lighting-blog%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Meet Juniper’s Industrial Designer, Mark

Mar

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Before our contemporary lighting designs go to the public market, Juniper's Industrial Designer Mark, works with the rest of the Industrial Design team to conceptualize, prototype, troubleshoot, and develop new ideas.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="15229" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.juniper-design.com/meet-the-team/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

1. What's your role at Juniper?

I am an Industrial Designer here at Juniper. We have a very collaborative design team that allows us to challenge our skills to develop new ideas that advance the inherited knowledge accumulated by Juniper in the pursuit of innovative lighting. With a background in the New York lighting scene and the Maker Movement of the last 10 years, I like to apply my experience to help solve problems encountered by small design focused businesses. Each day here at Juniper is very different. I am lucky to have the opportunity to collaborate with many of the different departments including development, marketing, sales, and production. This allows us to have unified goals and to build off of each others creativity and passion.
 

2. Where are you originally from?

I am from Littleton Colorado, living in Denver for most of my life. About 3 years ago I did the unthinkable and left the most enjoyable climate for the pursuit of enriching my cultural experience and expanding my creative opportunities. The thing I miss most about Colorado is the fresh mild dry air, and of course the Rocky Mountains.
 

3. What's the best thing about Juniper?

Juniper gives people the opportunity to express themselves and share ideas. We invest in ideas and the belief that if we work together we can accomplish more.

4. What are your interests outside of work?

For better or worse design is almost always on my mind. I seek out experiencing the creative energy New York City offers. Also, ball is life.
 

5. Where can we find you in New York the most?

The parks in New York are extremely important. When I’m in need of some fresh air nothing quite beats riding my bike to Prospect Park. Otherwise I’m usually hanging out in my neighborhood. I love the energy Bed Stuy offers, and it’s all right at my doorstep.
 

6. What's your favorite fixture at Juniper? Why?

My favorite fixture at Juniper is the THIN Task Lamp. It is seemingly simple, but the amount of effort and refinement to get it to where it is today is truly inspiring. It doesn’t seek your attention, instead, it simply provides an enjoyable experience causing you to invite it into your life.

To complement their luxury furniture pieces, Juniper's lighting was chosen to adorn vignettes of the showroom, creating intimate snapshots of spaces.   The THIN Primaries Collection in Juniper's Satin Brass finish was chosen as the common thread between vignettes, as well as the entryway to the showroom itself. The THIN Primaries Hexagon and a custom THIN Primaries Rhombus were installed in the back corners of the showroom above low coffee tables and seating arrangements.   A THIN Primaries Rectangle was installed as a natural entryway element to comfortably guide clients into the space. Each corner is centralized with a minimal geometric light fixture as a way to strategically bring focus to each vignette.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="17157" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

Juniper's Minimal Geometric Lighting

The THIN Primaries Collection is comprised of illuminated geometric shapes. By using solid brass 1/2-inch light segments, users can create dynamic installations with minimal obstruction. THIN System light segments are easily rotatable for adjustable direct or indirect illumination.   Juniper creates minimal luxury lighting for residential, commercial, and hospitality settings. When interior designs require custom capabilities, Juniper offers this flexibility for large projects.
