K-array Makes
Lighting Foray with
KScape Launch
The Italian company's KScape RAIL line
features K-array audio designs and
LEDs from Nichia to offer residential and
commercial clients full-color spectrum
lighting solutions with high CRI.
By Robert Archer
K-ARRAY has been supporting
the commercial audio
market for 30 years. More
recently, the Italian manufacturer
has developed a
residential audio product
line for indoor and outdoor
applications, and in May
K-array took an aggressive
step into the lighting category
when it launched its
KScape brand.
K-array believes the future
of home and office environments
lies in integrated
human-centric lighting and
audio. By merging audio with
lighting, KScape says users
can expand and maximize
the synergy between light
and sound, plus enjoy
elegant Italian industrial
designs.
Tom Riby, global brand
manager for KScape, notes
that K-array identified the
lighting category about four
or five years ago, but before
it entered the category, the
company wanted to ensure

it wasn't just producing ordinary
lighting products.
" Sound and light involve
our most important senses,
yet their quality directly
affects the quality of our
life in ways you could never
imagine so when approaching
both sound and light as
separate chapters of a project,
you often lead to some
limits and compromises that
negatively affect the final
result, " he explains.
" Considering all this, the
idea is that one device can
resolve the perfect integration
of the two disciplines
that sees them perfectly
harmonized in unison. It is
an integration that offers an
important tool for modern
design, which simplifies
construction and any future
maintenance. An innovative
and original way to offer
quality to our emotions. "
Riby says these products
solve the problems that
interior designers, archiK-array
offers multiple installation options for its
DALI-based KScape RAIL solutions, such as recessed
semi-recessed, ceiling and suspended.
tects and dealers face when
integrating lighting and
audio into residential and
commercial spaces. After
listening to the needs of
clientele in both markets,
Riby comments, the company
determined that lighting
was a greatly underappreciated
challenge. Its research
and development (R&D) led
K-array to come to market
with its RAIL solution.
" Developing RAIL was our
first approach into lighting
and we did not want to
create a light that 'just did
the job,' so we approached
LED market leader Nichia
in Japan for a solution that
benefited from their incredible
reputation for lifespan,
quality of light and LED
performance over time, "
Riby states.
" Along with the K-array
R&D team, both the
light source and structure
of RAIL was created and
installed into our own headquarters,
which caught the
attention of dealers around
the world and the story of
KScape began. "
