Sottile by Nulite

Sottile Series

Introducing Sottile [so-tee-lay] 2D, a new fully luminous architectural recessed luminaire. This cost effective, energy efficient, luminaire series provides soft ambient illumination with a modern appearance.

The crisp transitions between our three lenses creates a clean aesthetic and modern appearance. Our optical system consists of proprietary lenses which are engineered for balance between light transmission and shielding of the lamp source along with housing geometry to achieve a cohesive soft luminous quality.
