Boost your home efficiency with the Brightgreen Surface Series

Boost your home efficiency with the Brightgreen Surface Series

Melbourne-based premium LED company Brightgreen cuts energy consumption with a new range surface-mounted LEDs.


The simple yet stylish set includes petite, surface, flexi, track and pendant fitting LEDs. Building on the efficiency of standard LEDs, Brightgreen’s Surface Series designs boost home energy ratings in more way than one way. By totally eliminating the cutouts and gaps in insulation required for recessed lighting, the surface-mounted LEDs reduce heating and cooling costs so much, that the savings actually cover the cost of lighting up an average-sized Australian home. 

Brightgreen has engineered the Surface Series to represent more colours on the visible spectrum in high levels, and has been designed to transform interiors through more than just flexibility and style. Each luminaire features the company’s trademark Tru-Colour technology, projecting light that improves the appearance of skin tones, interior colours and design details like wood grains, textiles and marble.

“The company’s intention behind releasing the set was to encourage people to take a considered approach to lighting, allowing designers to achieve more creative and efficient results,” says Brightgreen Founder, CEO and Head of Product Design, David O’Driscoll.

The timeless aesthetic, pared-back contours and flexibility of the Surface Series speaks to the commitment Brightgreen has to enduring design, with each model in the collection designed to last for up to 70,000 hours, or 30 years on average daily use. Each luminaire offers unique application benefits and comes in either low-sheen white or matte black finishes.
