A Brief History- Home to performances great and small, from local concerts to touring Broadway shows, the iconic ASU Gammage theater has been a cornerstone of Phoenician culture for more than half a century. It began back in 1957 as the dream of then Arizona State University President, Grady Gammage, who commissioned his close friend and famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright to assist with the design. Together they envisioned a grand coliseum-like structure with two pedestrian bridges extending on either side to welcome visitors.

Accessory of the Week: NEW Right Angle Tiger Paws

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line. But in many instances, an LED installation requires more than just straight lines! Think of all the architectural features in your home or office space which are made up of angles and curves.  Flexible LED strips make quick work of rounded edges, but when it comes to turning sharp corners, issues can arise. One of the most common solutions up to this point has been to use a 4” jumper cable to round corners. For under cabinet applications, this typically works just fine; the cables are easy to install…

Most of us never think about these little power hogs plugged in throughout our homes. But due to lack of initial market regulation, early power supplies made extremely inefficient use of the grid (as low as 50% efficiency). Many even continue to draw power even after the connected device had been turned off. The result is higher…
