Against this background, the iF product design award sets trends in terms of future developments in product design.
Ecoos pendant luminaire – light through 360°
The Ecoos direct/indirect luminaire fascinates with its gently curved design and harmonious light distribution in a range of 360°. The unique combination of direct, indirect and lateral light components increases visual comfort. This is achieved using only one light source, which makes the luminaire especially efficient.
Thanks to its high-quality MPO+ micropyramidal optic and its perforated lateral reflectors, the luminaire appears as a brilliant lighting object that enhances every room. The luminaire unit is attractively finished off by shiny chrome end caps.
Discus – the purist spotlight system
Designed by EOOS Discus is a futuristic spotlight system by Zumtobel which blends into the architecture thanks to its flat, unobtrusive design, optimised by an innovative cooling concept that extends the service life of the light sources. Zumtobel’s efficient reflector technology and light sources such as 30 W LED or mini-HIT lamps allow compact dimensions with a diameter of 125mm and a height of only 28mm (LED version). The spotlights are made of diecast aluminium and are available in black and silver.
Ciria control point – one for all
Designed by Matteo Thun, the Luxmate Ciria control point impressively combines a linear design with harmoniously rounded corners and an easy-to-clean glass panel, either in black or white. Matteo Thun‘s design mainly focuses on easy menu navigation of the user interface. In addition to the lighting, Ciria can also control all other building services in the room. Brightness is individually adjusted via the central dimming wheel.
Thanks to its compact design, Ciria can be installed in wiring boxes complying with DIN 0606. From 2 March to August 2010, the awardwinning products will be presented at the annual iF design exhibition in Hanover.
