Zumtobel wins two “red dot design awards”
Prize-winning LED luminaires: SFERA and DISCUS Evolution
Two Zumtobel products have won the “red dot award: product design 2013”: the SFERA free-standing LED luminaire and the DISCUS Evolution LED spotlight system could not fail to impress the jury thanks to their outstanding product design.
These innovative products are exemplary for successful design based on users' requirements.
With the SFERA free-standing LED luminaire, Zumtobel sets new standards – especially with respect to adjustability and individual lighting quality. But SFERA's energy efficiency is impressive as well, thanks to a combination of the adaptive SENSCONTROL III lighting management system and the innovative SWARMCONTROL technology used for the first time in SFERA, which allows the configuration of the luminaires into a swarm without any additional software, providing for quick adjustment to altered room layouts.
The DISCUS Evolution LED spotlight system results from further development of an existing luminaire and cannot fail to impress on account of its perfectly matched light source and optic. The spotlight's flat design is now even more contemporary and minimalist. The delicate yet robust design of the spotlight created by the internationally renowned Vienna-based EOOS design studio was created for accent lighting and the sales-boosting presentation of goods.
This year, 1,865 manufacturers, designers and architects submitted a total of 4,662 products. The awards will be handed over and celebrated at the red dot gala at the Aalto Theater in Essen on 1 July 2013, in the presence of international guests, among them designers, business experts, politicians and media representatives. The prize-winning products will then be on display at the red dot design museum for four weeks.
