Situated in a small New Hampshire town between the Lakes Region and White Mountains resides this stunning cabin on Loon Lake. Recently showcased in Dwell magazine (subscription required), this two-bedroom getaway combines Japanese, Scandinavian, and Shaker influences. Embracing the concept of Wabi-sabi, the traditional Japanese aesthetic that centers on the acceptance of the imperfect, the cabin harmoniously pairs an assortment of textures, patinas, and imperfections — beautifully highlighted by a mixture of DMF Lighting technology.
By combining a suite of customizable features with our highest performing LED modules yet, the DCC provides brilliant illumination and beautiful design versatile enough for whatever your project needs. The DCC centers around a modular LED lighting system, so it’s easy to specify, install and maintain.
The DRD2 is a compact LED module with an integrated driver that delivers the optimal balance of form and function. It provides outstanding illumination and color consistency while being simple to specify, install and maintain. When paired with the award winning OneFrame housing, you can achieve the fire, sound, wet location and other ratings required for the most demanding projects.
With full 360° directional aiming and class leading 45° tilt, the DRD4 provides ultimate flexibility in the form of directional lighting in a compact, modular downlight. With an integrated driver, multiple beam options, and field-changeable accessories, it delivers tool-free aimed and lockable lighting to the award winning OneFrame housing.
The DRD5S redefines what’s possible for a surface mount downlight. Packed with technical breakthroughs, the ultra-thin DRD5S matches the elegance of a high-end recessed downlight. Get the most out of DRD5S by installing it into our advanced octagonal junction box, the SurfaceFrame. Together, it’s even easier to specify, install and maintain and includes fire, sound, air tight and insulated contact ratings.
