It's a troffer! It's a highbay! It's a... recessed highbay?

It's a troffer! It's a highbay! It's a... recessed highbay?

These unusual fixtures are in the Fine Arts building at the Minnesota State Fair. The state fair is a lighting enthusiast's dream land.
Anyway,back to the point. These are some cool fixtures that I have known about for as long as I can remember. Most are MV, but some are MH. They all have coated lamps, except for the one by the entrance. Some have quartz restrike systems, too. I have a picture of the whole building inside, which I will post later.

I've seen in a store once highbays suspended above a suspended ceiling. A round hole and some kind of trim was installed on the tile directly below the fixture. Some were swinging on their chain so it gave it away. They were replaced by standard fluorescent troffers in the 90's.

I seen that done here too, sometimes with highbays that have prismatic diffuser on them. The place you describe sounds like great place !

It is an awesome building (actually the whole fair is great for lighting enthusiasts), but the problem, the art in there is for sale. Some of the "art" looks like udder crap (literally), and I wonder if it even sells for the $2500 they want for it. There was even a piece of twisted fabric with beads on (not even old), and it was $1400!!! Oh the things people call art nowadays. The most I would pay for it would be $10. I have a pic if you don't believe me.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.
