Oh yes you are right. All those flat glary fixtures are scary. I might go blind from their design Cheesy
Let's go off topic. This is a very nice fixture and I really want to collect it. It looks decent and gives off a good lighting pattern.

This is the only fixture I can accept with open arms.

One thing I do know is that most American type LED fixtures sold are just terrible. I've never really been into cobraheads and that kind of stuff but once you see a V Max... you get what I'm saying. And as for European fixtures I think they're a bit more streamlined. Industria makes some really nice ones but they try too hard to make a work of art. They could've retrofitted older HPS fixtures with LED lamps and it wouldn't break the bank. I think that most cities choose the uglier fixtures because they are cheaper.

For me, all LED fixtures and lanterns are terrible, regardless if they are american, european or even Gaash.

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other lighting.

I find daylight fluorescents (especially Halophosphate daylight fluorescents) creepy, after dark, especially in old buildings from the 50's/60's, also in buildings when there's no one about after dark.

I find Incandescents in such buildings more towards the "creepy" factor. Being Incandescent it is usually an old setup which is quite dim, without redundancy which means any EOL lamp equals a significant dark area, and often flickering to bad connections or voltage fluctations which are less pronounced with 36 T8's

For me its the bluish colour that makes it creepy, the same building with 3000K or 3500K would be fine.
I can see how incandescent may feel creepy, but it depends on what the building is like and if there is any windows etc.

I use low wattage incandescent lamps wired in series with a florescent starter to really create that creepy feeling, the lights flicker and flash randomly non-stop, just like you see in the horror flicks, they are a real treat to watch at Halloween especially if you have several of them because it's so random (but they are hard on the starters which only last a few days, good thing Halloween night is only a few hours long)

Oh and for fixtures I just use pigtail sockets with mangled rusty wire cages and what ever I can find, like old plates, some have mud thrown on them or paint, some are normal bulbs some are vintage replicas of varying wattage's I can't find those nice enameled green shades that are beaten and weathered around me or I would use those with my flashing lights...

The wallguard does look very effective for lighting big terrains. I like the design, it's unique
