The TONES Collection


 Seven different shades of light to express different light spectrums specially designed to exalt and enhance different combinations of materials and colours. A completely new light, highly specialised that has never been seen before. 

Every light spectrum is the result of a joint study between Targetti technical staff and a team of architects from Gensler, one of the largest architectural firms in the world. Targetti and Gensler analysed different combinations of materials and colours that are used in modern architecture and created the most suitable spectrum of light for each of them to enhance each composition, both as a whole as well as every single component. 

All TONES are composed of a precise LED combination that has been carefully selected, mixed together and controlled to produce an ideal light spectrum: every combination was defined after extensive analysis of its capacity to reproduce the colours and materials of the various samples in a harmonious way. All TONES have a precise colour temperature but what really sets them apart from standard LED lamps and gives them added value are the extremely rich emission spectrums and the adherence (Color Quality) that testify to the actual rendering capacity of various colours, information that goes beyond every single colour rendering index. 

TONES Collection ensures a perfect balance between characteristics of the materials and the colours of the various compositions, improves the perception of different textures of materials and enhances contrasts and countless shades to strengthen the expressive message as a whole. The TONES range is ideal for domestic, retail, hotel and entertainment lighting, spaces where there is an interior design project that takes into account colours and materials aimed at creating a style and an atmosphere and to elicit particular emotions. 

“This is a Godsend for designers with the aim to designing an emotive space”

Ideal Materials: bricks, leather and carpet

Ideal Colors: orange, brown, red, violet 

Color Temperature: 2386ºK 

Inspired by warm colors of the sunset TONES CALM was created to light the lounge areas in a famous resort in California, where the need was to have the same colors inside as outside at sunset. This particular luminous spectrum is ideal to light materials that transmit warmth with a definite texture. Ideal for spaces where you want to convey calmness, warmth and relaxation. It is certainly the tone that is closest to that of an incandescent lamp, but unlike the latter it can respect the veracity of colder colors.


Ideal Materials: gold-plated metals, wood, velvet, flesh tones 

Ideal Colors: azure, white, grey, brown, gold, mustard 

Color Temperature: 2579ºK 

A well calibrated spectrum particularly focused on warm yellow tones but with peaks of blue and green to ensure perfect perception of white and grey, as well as perfect rendering of warm tones. It is ideal for lighting a palette of colors and materials with darker tones to create a sophisticated look. The mix of dark greys, blacks and mustard brings to mind a more masculine, “classic” style space.


Ideal Materials: leather, wood, plastic, woven fabric 

Ideal Colors: azure, beige, neutral tones, green, violet 

Color Temperature: 2386ºK 

It has a well-balanced spectrum that can enhance warm neutral tones as well as colder colours like azure and blue and brighter and brilliant shades. A light tone that can reinforce the message of relaxation and naturalness. Colour combinations used where the intention is to elicit emotions with earth colours and jewel tones.


Ideal Materials: wood, prints, stone materials, plasterwork 

Ideal Colors: white, grey, brown, mustard 

Color Temperature: 3050ºK 

A neutral tone light that works very well with whites and greys as well as warm bright shades such as mustard and burgundy. The combination between the finishes and “collaborative” lights dedicated to them reinforce the message of an elegant, warm and refined style.


Ideal Materials: wood, marble, metal, stone 

Ideal Colors: orange, white, yellow, brown, black, red 

Color Temperature: 3200ºK 

A soft, neutral light that works well with natural materials like stone, wood and metals, yet at the same time capable of reproducing black and white faithfully. A light that can combine materials and warm and cold shades for a more modern, urban appearance.


Ideal Materials: leather, plastic, prints 

Ideal Colors: white, saturated colours, black 

Color Temperature: 3391ºK 

The ideal light for enhancing “non” colors like deep black and pure white, that can also respect saturated colors such as bright red.  This “energetic” light enhances this timeless style in a combination of important, refined, geometric and rigorous contrasts that can relax users and transmit energy to them at the same time.


Ideal Materials: bricks, leather, carpet, gold-plated metals, wood, velvet, flesh tones, plastic, woven fabrics, prints, stone materials, plasterwork, marble, metal, stone 

Ideal Colors: orange, azure, beige, white, saturated colours, yellow, grey, brown, black, gold, red, mustard, neutral tones, green, violet, violet 

Color Temperature: 3586ºK 

Certainly, this is the best light for spaces with a wide range of materials and colors. This is a neutral light, the coldest in the TONES range that is also capable of reproducing warm tones faithfully. From tests carried out it is certainly the light with the best color rendering on a large number of samples which makes it an excellent compromise where there are no obviously dominant colors. A bright light that reproduces neutral tones light grey and bright green very well which makes it suitable to bring a dash of nature inside closed spaces and enhance them. Gives a sense of freedom and vitality.
