About Shot Light
Shot Light is a luminary conceived to be a small, discreet point of light in the ceiling that hides the illumination source from sight and aims to offer maximum visual comfort. In order to achieve this, it has an anti-glare screen and a specifically designed micro-reflector that generates a perfectly defined light beam.
In this way, Shot Light very distinctly concentrates the light on one point, in which it achieves high degrees of luminance, similar to more powerful downlights. This feature allows it to be applied, separately, for accent lighting in specific areas, or grouped together as general lighting in projects where the priority is hiding the light source.
