Gotham Lighting Introduces the IVO Shallow Recessed Downlight, the First Luminaire from the New IVO Family

January 30, 2024

Gotham Lighting, an established innovator and manufacturer of architectural downlighting, announced today the IVO™ Shallow Recessed downlight, the first luminaire from the new IVO family.

The IVO Shallow Recessed downlight addresses spatial limitations, fitting into spaces as shallow as 2 inches, while delivering exceptional performance.  

Ideal for both new construction and remodel projects, the IVO Shallow Recessed Downlight boasts up to 3000 lumens from a 4-inch aperture and up to 5000 lumens from a 6-inch aperture and delivers up to 120 lumens per watt. Installation is simple with LED quick connects and patented constant tension springs that can accommodate ceilings ranging from 5/8 inch to 2-inch thickness.

The downlight’s flexible design, with hinged junction boxes for remodeling and accessible driver boxes for new construction frames, ensures seamless integration into any space. Designed for field-serviceability, the IVO Shallow Recessed downlight features interchangeable trims and optics that can be effortlessly serviced from below the ceiling with a simple twist and lock mechanism. Includes the option to choose between a 4-inch aperture size accommodating a 2-inch plenum depth or a 6-inch aperture with a 3.5-inch plenum depth. Both options are offered in round or square configurations, featuring open cone or lensed wall wash designs, and are available with either flange or flangeless options. Additionally, a diverse range of finishes and trim colors are available for customization. 

Gotham’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in the IVO downlight’s design that uses 17% less steel, 44% less aluminum, and 28% less plastic compared to standard downlights. This eco-friendly approach significantly reduces carbon emissions and environmental impact. 

Perfect color consistency is achieved with a 0.5 MacAdam ellipse from fixture to fixture. Proprietary optics coupled with an advanced light engine and Bounding Ray™ Optical Design delivers a true uniformed, batwing distribution for smooth illumination and a comfortable experience for occupants in the space. Technical adaptability extends to color temperature control, offering options from 2700K to 5000K. The downlight supports universal dimming to 1% through 0-10V, 120V Triac, and ELV protocols. Integration with nLight® wired or wireless lighting controls further enhances control options.
