Salter Point, Urban Living
This display home by AMG showcases just how creative you can be with lighting. Featuring a wide range of our luminaires, this Salter Point home is a stunning example of the versatility of Faze.
Throughout the entirety of the home is the Lite 108 and Lite mini, which have been used for both accent and ambient light. The kitchen features a more unique choice of the Silo 60 Surface, placed as a pair above the kitchen bench top.
Following this, we have 3 of the Vita Adjustables, which have been used to illuminate both the artwork and the feature wall of the dark exposed brick. You will also notice the Vita Fixed as a unique bathroom lighting choice, illuminating the feature black marble wall.
In the theatre is the Core, mounted seamlessly to the wooden feature ceiling. As well as this, our Fusion PCB 120 LED strip has been used throughout the hallway and main living area, to illuminate the walls.
We’re open 8am – 5pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 12:30pm on Saturdays.
Our lighting consultants are always available during these hours to help you with any solutions you may need.

Where to Buy
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode; a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. LEDs use approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting (hello power bill savings!) and also have a much longer lifespan, roughly 25,000 – 50,000 hours depending on the ‘globe’. LED’s are also eco-friendly, they don’t contain any harmful mercury, they don’t emit any CO2 and they can be recycled without harming the environment.
Kelvin (K) is a measurement of light colour and is not a measurement of brightness, 3000k is a warm white, whereas 4000k is a cool white. The higher the number of Kelvin, the cooler the light. Think of the ember warmth of candles or firelight (which is 1000k-2000k), compared to the blueish tint of daylight, which is around 5000k. The colour temperature will impact a number of factors, including the ambience of a space.
Our lighting consultants lean toward a 3000k as it is not too warm/yellow toned and will therefore provide a clean white finish that is also still soft. However this can differ as some people may prefer a cooler white to others. For example, homes that feature a monochromatic palette of whites and blacks will suit a 4000k better – to bring out the whites and not create a yellow wash.
Lumens are a measurement of the total amount of visible light from a light source, this is the term used in place of wattage on the old scale. Typically, closer to 100-lumen per watt is very efficient – a standard downlight at 10.5W should be closer to 900lumen – this means it is performing at a higher level with less power.
CRI stands for Colour Rendering Index, which measures the ability of a light to accurately reproduce the colour of various objects. The closer to 100, the higher the quality of the light source.
