LEDbits / LED Design Toolkit


Solid State Lighting is the future of lighting. Based on the benefits proposed by the technology, one would suspect the majority of new lighting applications to exhaust 
the new possibilities with high-power LED lighting. However, in reality, the opposite seems to be true.

The reason? Designing luminaires with high-power LEDs is hard, time consuming and requires substantial technical knowledge. In order to encourage all designers of lighting applications to start working with LED, Nikolai Gillissen designed a modular, easy to use design toolkit that makes the development of luminaires using high-power LEDs a breeze.
