How it works
Coates casts a soft glow, not a harsh glare. That’s because, unlike most downlights, the bulb faces upwards, back into the light. Look up and you’ll see a chrome-coloured bridge that sits across the middle. That’s what holds the bulb, which then shines onto the mirrored interior, diffusing the light out. We’ve also designed Coates so you won’t get a black spot from the bridge’s shadow as the light falls.
