Northport pays homage to traditional street lighting, offering a warm and emotional connection to the past while also performing, looking and feeling at home in the present. Including a path light and multiple area light configurations, Northport luminaires combined with the collection's partner street furnishings offer designers a full suite of resources to program outdoor spaces ranging from charming streetscapes, to historic downtown districts, to parks and pedestrian promenades.

The reference point for Northport lighting is the acorn streetlamp, an iconic piece of outdoor design ubiquitous in the traditional streetscape and deeply rooted in landscape design heritage. Without a glass globe atop the post, the lights instead craft a connection to the classic streetlamp in much more subtle way, revealing the “acorn” in the negative space between the luminaire’s arms. Further, mounted inside the area light below the lens, an optional LED element alludes to a gas lamp’s flame, inspiring warm nostalgia and reinforcing a traditional setting's the sense of place.
