Inspired by nature

The human eye provides key biomechanical inspiration to the design of Iris Tilt - ensuring that the light source can emit on any rotational axis while maintaining an air-tight seal while tilted.

  • Realistic colour and contrast with colour rendering up to 97+ CRI for vivid and lustrous lighting environments.
  • Custom designed white powder coating process, designed to blend with New Zealand's most common ReseneTM and DuluxTM ceiling colour palates.
  • Engineered with premium components delivering a 60,000+ hour lighting engine, our latest custom developed Phoenix 3 driver platform and boasts a 10 year warranty4.

Inspired by nature.

Iris Tilt provides great capability with its sealed ball and socket design that while tilted, ensures no air loss into the ceiling cavity. Iris Tilt is also extremely adaptable to a wide array of applications - boasting over 60 different build variations.

Low Glare

Through optical and technological refinements, Iris Tilt has an extremely low glare rating which does not exceed UGR 14.41 on any of its variations. Any light fitting under UGR 19 is classed as low glare. You'll experience smooth crisp light without causing added stress on your eyes.


Product Design

Iris Tilt was engineered through a synergy of styling from our flagship 'Eve Series' luminaires and by mother nature itself. The human eye provides key biomechanical inspiration to the design - ensuring that the light source can emit on any rotational axis - all while maintaining sealed while tilted. Iris Tilt also features our thinnest razor edge trim design yet, with a trim edge measuring a tiny 0.8mm for beautiful and minimalist aesthetics.

Light Colour Options





Discrete. Efficient. Powerful.

While being a discrete luminaire of only 103mm, Iris Tilt packs a punch - capable of producing up to 8502 lumens at just 9W. Iris Tilt carries colour rendering options from 90+ CRI to a highly respectable 97+ CRI for more true to life colours and a beautiful ambiance. Iris Tilt utilizes the highest quality LED technology which allows for a lifespan over 60,000 hours at L703 and comes packaged with a full 10 year warranty4.


Lens Options

Iris Tilt has two different lens options and four optical beam angle options. These are 20° , 40°, 60° and wide beam angles and either an optical grade transparent lens or a frosted PMMA lens.


Trim Options

Iris Tilt has two trim colour options to choose from. Black and Visionary white. Our black is matte black and is anti-reflective to reduce glare. Our white trim is powder coated using a special formulation, co-developed by Visionary that is extremely durable and designed for the most popular ceiling paints used in New Zealand.
