Stencilflex from Axis Lighting: A New Framework for Limitless Lighting Design

November 14, 2023

In spaces with exposed ceilings, the StencilFlex® framework creates a suspended, scalable ceiling-like structure that supports layers of light, while maintaining an architectural look with the option of integrating highly appealing acoustic elements.​

Lighting projects can include one or multiple frameworks of different shapes and sizes, including all-new Curves. ​Which type of framework fits your vision for the space?

Layers of Light

StencilFlex® is about looking at layers of light differently. The result? A unique, revolutionary and highly flexible approach to lighting open‑ceiling spaces using patented line-voltage technology. As a delivery system for layers of light, the product provides new, creative ways to achieve more design flexibility, simpler energy/emergency code compliance and greater lighting system effectiveness.

A patented line-voltage delivery system offering maximum flexibility in the deployment and control of layers of light

Get Creative

Curves brings a new dimension to StencilFlex layouts. The creative use of curve segment adds design freedom by enabling a wide range of rounded forms and curvilinear configurations.
