Lighting CEU Seminar hosted by Pentimento inc. at our new Factory Showroom


Can you believe it’s already August? What happened to June and July? We’ve been busy all summer long preparing our new factory showroom. What used to be manufacturing space is now becoming nearly 20,000 square feet of display area. High ceilings, lots of wall space…it’s going to be quite a place. Former paint booths are being turned into vignettes to show design applications using the many products that Pentimento inc. offers. Open areas that were once the home of scroll benders, welders and wiring stations are becoming hospitality room settings, and outdoor living displays. We are showing antique reproduction hand-carved fireplaces, iron doors with art glass, iron architectural details, vintage collectibles and memorabilia, original art, upholstered modular seating and many lighting lines including 2nd Ave. Lighting. We now represent some stunning lighting lines from Italy and Spain, too. So many really beautiful things!

We define our factory showroom as a destination location. A creative collaborative resource. A place where our clients will see lots of product and design ideas & solutions while we assist them in their project needs. Our talented artists and designers are on site to offer custom product design services, too.

As a resource, we aim to help our clients in other ways, too… like education. So, scheduled for Wednesday, September 29th, at 9:30 AM, we are hosting a Lighting CEU Seminar.

This free seminar, “Quality Design & Sustainability” offers continuing education credits and addresses the unique challenges found in hospitality design. Our presenter will be Fred Butler, LC, CDT, MIES. Mr. Butler is a graduate of the College of Architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology. After practicing as an architect for ten years, he transitioned his focus to understanding both the Art and Science of applying light to Architecture and Design.

In no other industry do you have as many different space types as you do with the Hospitality Industry. From restaurants to hotels, vacation resorts, casinos & theme parks, the Hospitality Industry is a complex world that depends heavily on successful lighting to create an elevated level of experience – ambience, drama, sparkle and comfort! How can we light these spaces well and sustainably? Our Lighting Seminar will help you have a better understanding of:

  • Energy Statistics & Hospitality Programs that promote quality design and energy efficiency.
  • Sustainable Lamp Terminology.
  • Energy Codes related to the Hospitality Industry.
  • Sustainable Lighting Design techniques for the various types of hospitality spaces. And leave prepared with a Custom Lighting Fixture Design Checklist.

Showroom address: 737 W. 2nd Ave., Mesa AZ 85210
