VADER, an innovative new product by Targetti, has received several distinguished industry design awards. VADER, an all-in-one adjustable floodlight projector, encompasses the flexibility of an entire range of exterior projector fixtures in a single product.

VADER, the new outdoor projector, has been recognized with the following design awards:
• Architectural Products Product Innovation Award Winner – Exterior Lighting
• Light Middle East Awards 2024 Finalists – Outdoor Lighting Product of the Year
• The Architect’s Newspaper (AN) 2023 Best of Products Awards Editor’s Pick” – Lighting + Electrical: Outdoor category
• LIT Lighting Design Awards 2023 – Honorable Mention

VADER is the result of the collaboration and innovation of Targetti and international lighting design studio, Fisher Marantz Studios (FMS). Targetti’s expertise in development of cutting-edge lighting solutions and the experience and creativity of FMS’s design team has led to the creation of VADER, a new outdoor floodlight that offers the flexibility of multiple luminaires in a single product. With the VADER floodlight projector, Targetti builds upon its heritage as an innovative company, capable of interpreting the needs of the market with cutting-edge solutions developed in collaboration with prestigious internationally known architects and lighting designers.

VADER is a new outdoor floodlight projector that encompasses the flexibility of an entire range of exterior projector fixtures in a single product. VADER is a versatile and easy-to-use fixture. It offers the possibility of choosing light distribution, color temperature, and control system (0-10V, DALI, DMX) directly during installation.

VADER’s Zoom optical system was developed for manual adjustment of the light beam from Spot (18°) to Medium Wide Flood (40°). Adjustment is continuous and not by predefined steps and it is possible to mechanically lock the zoom on the chosen distribution. A practical graduated scale allows the choice to be replicated on several luminaires. The Tunable White LED sources that equip VADER also make it possible to identify the most suitable color temperature and, if necessary, adapt it to changing design requirements.
“Conceived as a modular element, multiple VADER units can be securely linked to share power and control inputs from a single electrical feed, allowing for incremental increases to output and range of coverage, as field conditions and illumination objectives evolve. One fitting type can be specified on projects of any scale, in response to a variety of applications, with allocation in both single and clusters iterations.” Fisher Marantz Studios (FMS)

Characterized by a compact design and solid, rounded shapes, VADER has been studied in every detail to offer optimal performance and extreme simplicity of use. The projector has a swiveling range of 355° in the horizontal plane and 110° in the vertical with a practical and fast aiming lock thanks to the two graduated rings. A wide range of optical and installation accessories amplifies the VADER’s flexibility. The various installation systems available have been designed to allow easy connection to the base element of the projector.
Initially introduced at Euroluce, VADER will be officially showcased in North America during LEDucation in New York City this March. For full details on VADER, visit
